ContextJesus Walks on Water
22And straightway Jesus constrained his disciples to get into a ship, and to go before him to the other side, while he sent the multitudes away. 23And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there alone. 24But the ship was now in the middle of the sea, tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary. 25And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went to them, walking on the sea. 26And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear. 27But straightway Jesus spoke to them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid. 28And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be you, bid me come to you on the water. 29And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus. 30But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me. 31And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said to him, O you of little faith, why did you doubt? 32And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased. 33Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped him, saying, Of a truth you are the Son of God.
