The events leading to Jesus walking on water
Jesus had just finished feeding five thousand people, including women and children, with five loaves ad two fishes.
As soon as He was through, Jesus made the disciples get into the
boat and go ahead of Him to the other side. Meantime, He told the people goodbye as they left.
After the crowds had left, Jesus went up to a mountain to pray. He was alone and stayed there until evening.
Meantime, the disciples were on the ship. It was in the middle of the sea, and the weather had changed.
The wind was very strong, and the ship tossed about on the water.
Jesus walked on water at about 2.00 am
The boat was caught in the storm all night. As the night was ending (about 2.00 a.m. our time), Jesus walked on the in order to get to His disciples.
Jesus was not scared although the night was dark, black, cold and the sea raging.
When the disciples saw Jesus walking on the water they were terrified. They begain to yell in fear:
‘It’s a ghost!’
Jesus calmed His disciples and Peter walked on the water too
Jesus chuckled quietly and said,
“Cheer up guys. It’s me. Don’t be afraid.”
Everyone became calm. Peter then made an amazing request. He said:
“Lord, if it’s you, let me walk on the water and come to you.”
The next thing the other eleven disciples knew, Peter was gathering his clothes. He clambered over the side of the boat and began to walk on the water.
Everyone except Jesus gasped in amazement.
Peter began to sink when he looked at the angry winds
Peter began to walk on the water. He was doing pretty well until he looked at the angry winds and raging sea.
He cried out, “Lord, save me!”
On hearing those words, Jesus instantly stretched out His hand and caught Peter. Jesus said,
“You’ve got little faith. Why did you doubt?”
Jesus and Peter got onto the ship and the wind stopped blowing hard.
The disciples on the ship began to worship Jesus. They said,
“You are truly the Son of God.”
Now we know that Jesus and Peter are the only two people who ever walked on water!

Jesus walks on water bible verses
Immediately he made the disciples get into the boat and go before him to the other side, while he dismissed the crowds.
And after he had dismissed the crowds, he went up on the mountain by himself to pray. When evening came, he was there alone,
but the boat by this time was a long way from the land, beaten by the waves, for the wind was against them.
And in the fourth watch of the night he came to them, walking on the sea.
But when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were terrified, and said, “It is a ghost!” and they cried out in fear.
But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, “Take heart; it is I. Do not be afraid.”
And Peter answered him, “Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the water.”
He said, “Come.” So Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water and came to Jesus.
But when he saw the wind, he was afraid, and beginning to sink he cried out, “Lord, save me.”
Jesus immediately reached out his hand and took hold of him, saying to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?”
And when they got into the boat, the wind ceased.
And those in the boat worshiped him, saying, “Truly you are the Son of God.”
