but when they saw him walking on the lake, they thought he was a ghost.1 They cried out,
because they all saw him and were terrified. Immediately he spoke to them and said, "Take courage! It is I. Don't be afraid."2
Then he climbed into the boat3 with them, and the wind died down.4 They were completely amazed,
for they had not understood about the loaves; their hearts were hardened.5
