John 6:16-21

Jesus walks on the water

16 When it was evening, Jesus' disciples went down to the lake. 17 They got into a boat and they started to sail towards Capernaum. It had become dark and Jesus still had not come to them. 18 A very strong wind was blowing and the water became dangerous. 19 The disciples were trying to move the boat through the water. When they had gone three or four miles (5 or 6 kilometres), they saw Jesus. He was walking on the water and coming near to the boat. They were very afraid. 20 But Jesus said to them, ‘It is I. Do not be afraid.’ 21 So, the disciples were happy to let Jesus get into the boat. Immediately, the boat came to the shore where they wanted to be.
