When evening came, the boat was in the middle
of the lake, while Jesus was alone on land. He saw
that his disciples were straining at the oars, because
they were rowing against the wind, so some time between three
and six o'clock in the morning he came to them by,
walking on the water. "Its a ghost!" they thought, and
screamed. They were all terrified when they saw him.
Jesus spoke to them at once. "Courage!" he said.
"It is I. Don't be afraid!" Then he got into the boat with them,
and the wind dies down.
Do not be afraid of those who
kill the body but cannot kill the soul; rather
be afraid of God, who can destroy both body
and soul in hell.
