and behold, a sudden storm arose on the sea, so that the boat began to be buried by the waves. But he was asleep. And they came and woke him, saying. "Lord save us! We are drowning!"

But the men were amazed, saying, "What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him?" When he arrived on the other side, in the country of the Gadarenes, he was met by two demoniacs who were coming out of the tombs. They were so violently fierce that no one dared pass along that road. "You Son of God," they shouted, "what have you to do with us? Are you come to torment us before the time?" Now there was, at some distance from them, a herd of many swine feeding; and the demons began entreating him. "If you are driving us out," they said, "send us into the herd of swine." He answered, "Go!" So they came out of the men, and went into the swine, and behold! the entire herd rushed headlong down from the cliff into the sea, and perished in the water.

And in the fourth watch of the night he came toward them, walking upon the sea, but when the disciples saw him walking upon the sea, they were terrified. "It is a phantom," they said, and cried out for fear. But at once Jesus spoke to them, "Courage," he said, "it is I. Fear not." Peter answered, "Master, if it is you, bid me come to you upon the water." "Come," said Jesus. Then Peter got down from the boat and walked on the water to go to Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid, and as he began to sink, he cried out, "Master, save me!" At once Jesus stretched out his hand and caught hold of him, saying to him. "O little faith! What made you doubt?" Then as they climbed into the boat the wind grew weary, and the men in the boat fell upon their knees before him, saying, "You are, indeed, the Son of God."

But a great gale of wind came up, and the waves were dashing into the boat so that it began to fill. Now he himself was sleeping on the cushion in the stern, so they woke him up, saying, "Master, do you not care if we perish?" And he awoke, rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, "Peace, be still!"

On one occasion when he was standing by the lake of Gennesaret, the crowd pressed upon him to listen to the word of God.

When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, "Push out into deep water, and let down your nets for a haul." "Master," answered Simon, "although we toiled all night, we took nothing; but at your bidding I will let down the nets." And when they had done this they enclosed a great multitude of fish; and their nets began to break. So they motioned to their partners in the other boat to come and help them. They came and filled both boats, so that they began to sink. When Simon Peter saw this he fell down at the knees of Jesus, exclaiming, "Depart from me, O Lord, for I am a sinful man!"

Now it happened that one of these days he got into a boat, And him his disciples, and he said to them, "Let us cross to the other side of the lake." So they set sail. While they were sailing he fell asleep. And there fell on the lake a squall of wind, so that the boat began to fill, and they to be in deadly peril.

After this Jesus showed himself again to his disciples by the Sea of Tiberias. He showed himself as follows. There were together Simon Peter and Thomas, called "The Twin," and Nathanael, from Cana of Galilee, and the two sons of Zebedee, and two others of his disciples. Simon Peter said to them, "I am going fishing." They answered him, "And we are going with you." So they went out and got into the boat, and throughout the night they caught nothing. read more.

Then that disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, "It is the Lord!" On hearing that it was the Lord, Simon Peter girt his fisher's coat about him (for he was naked), and threw himself into the water. The rest of the disciples came in the boat, for they were not far from shore??nly about a hundred yards??ragging in the net full of fish. When they got to the shore they beheld a charcoal fire ready laid, with fish on it, and some bread. "Bring some of the fish you have just caught," Jesus told them. So Simon Peter went and dragged the net to shore, full of large fish, a hundred and fifty-three of them; but for all this number the net was not torn.
