It was evening and the sun was setting. Jesus told His disciples, “Let us cross over to the other side of the sea.” Jesus and His disciples got in a boat. Other boats were traveling with them.
Suddenly a great windstorm arose on the water. The storm
grew stronger and stronger. The waves were growing higher and higher. The waves began crashing into the boat. The boat was swamped with water. Jesus was in the boat—asleep on a cushion! The disciples woke Jesus up and said to Him,
“Teacher, don’t You care that we are going to drown?”
Jesus stood up. He said, “Silence! Be still!” The wind stopped. There was great calmness. Jesus asked His disciples, “Why were you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?” They were still scared, and they asked each other, “Who is this? Even the wind and the sea obey Him!”
