Jesus Walks on Water

As the day drew to a close Jesus sent his disciples away to Bethsaida. They went down to the lake and set off across the water to Capernaum. It was to be an eventful night.

It had been a long hard day - I can tell you; and we were all grabbing a well- earned rest in my boat as we crossed over to Capernaum. You see, Jesus had been preaching most of the day and he had a habit of wearing the rest of us out with his enthusiasm. And to top it all he had done the refreshments for five thousand people. Anyway, usual story - he went off to a hill to pray, we went off in a boat to sleep. And that was when all the trouble began...
There I was, happily dreaming of owning my own fishing fleet, when suddenly it seemed like the whole of the lake had landed in my lap. Well, needless to say, I decided it was time to wake up. Unfortunately, so did everyone else, and there was a general state of panic.
The boat was bouncing around, disciples everywhere you looked, fish flying in your face.
Well, I thought we’d had it.
