Mark 6:45-56

Jesus Walks on the Water

45 Right away Jesus made his disciples get into the boat. He had them go on ahead of him to Bethsaida. Then he sent the crowd away.
46 After leaving them, he went up on a mountainside to pray.
47 When evening came, the boat was in the middle of the Sea of Galilee. Jesus was alone on land.
48 He saw the disciples pulling hard on the oars. The wind was blowing against them. Early in the morning, he went out to them. He walked on the lake. When he was about to pass by them,
49 they saw him walking on the lake. They thought he was a ghost. They cried out.
50 They all saw him and were terrified. Right away he said to them, "Be brave! It is I. Don't be afraid."
51 Then he climbed into the boat with them. The wind died down. And they were completely amazed.
52 They had not understood about the loaves. They were stubborn.
53 They crossed over the lake and landed at Gennesaret. There they tied up the boat.
54 As soon as Jesus and his disciples got out, people recognized him.
55 They ran through that whole area to bring to him those who were sick. They carried them on mats to where they heard he was.
56 He went into the villages, the towns and the countryside. Everywhere he went, the people brought the sick to the market places. Those who were sick begged him to let them touch just the edge of his clothes. And all who touched him were healed.
