Jesus Stops a Storm
That evening, Jesus said to his followers, “Come with me across the lake.”
He and the followers left the people there. They went in the boat that Jesus was already sitting in. There were also other boats with them.
A very strong wind came up on the lake. The waves began coming over the sides and into the boat. It was almost full of water.
Jesus was at the back of the boat, sleeping with his head on a pillow. The followers went to him and woke him. They said, “Teacher, do you care about us? We will drown!”
Jesus stood up and commanded the wind and the waves to stop. He said, “Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind stopped, and the lake became calm.
Jesus said to his followers, “Why are you afraid? Do you still have no faith?”
The followers were very afraid and asked each other, “What kind of man is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!”
