In the evening the disciples went down to the shore of the lake and got into a boat to make for Capernaum on the other side of the lake. It was getting dark by now and Jesus had still not rejoined them.
The wind was strong, and the sea was getting rough.
They had rowed three or four miles when they saw Jesus walking on the lake and coming towards the boat.
This frightened them, but he said, ‘It is I. Do not be afraid.’ They were for taking him into the boat, but in no time it reached the shore at the place they were making for.
