“Chapter 29: Jesus Walks on the Water,” New Testament Stories (2005), 71–72
After feeding the 5,000, Jesus went up on a mountain to pray. His disciples took a boat to cross the Sea of Galilee. When night came, the wind started to blow, and the waves became high.
Late that night, Jesus came to join His disciples. He was walking on the water to get to the boat.
The disciples saw Him walking on the water. They were afraid. They thought He was a spirit. Jesus called to them, “It is I; be not afraid.”
Peter wanted to walk on the water too. Jesus told Peter to come to Him. Peter climbed out of the boat. He began to walk on the water toward the Savior.
Because the wind was blowing hard, Peter became afraid. He began to sink into the water and cried out to Jesus to save him.
The Savior took Peter’s hand. He asked Peter why he did not have more faith.
When Jesus and Peter came to the boat, the storm stopped. All the disciples worshipped the Savior. They knew that He was the Son of God.
