And behold, a great tempest developed in the sea, so as for the boat to be covered by the waves, but he was sleeping.

And straightaway Jesus compelled the disciples to enter into the boat, and to go ahead of him to the other side, until he would dismiss the multitudes.

And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went to them, walking upon the sea. And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a ghost, and they cried out from fear. But straightaway Jesus spoke to them, saying, Cheer up. It is I, fear not. And having answered him, Peter said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come to thee on the waters. And he said, Come. And having come down from the boat, Peter walked upon the water to go to Jesus. But seeing the boisterous wind, he was afraid, and having begun to sink, he cried out, saying, Lord, save me. And straightaway having stretched forth his hand, Jesus took hold of him, and says to him, O thou of little faith, why did thou doubt? And when they entered into the boat, the wind ceased. And those who came in the boat worshiped him, saying, Thou really are the Son of God.

And a great storm of wind develops, and the waves were thrown into the boat, so as for it now to be filling. And he himself was in the stern sleeping on the cushion. And they awake him, and say to him, Teacher, does it not concern thee that we perish? And having awaken, he rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, Be quiet! Silence! And the wind ceased, and it became a great calm.

Now it came to pass, while the multitude pressed upon him to hear the word of God, and having stood still, he was beside the lake of Gennesaret. And he saw two boats standing by the lake, but the fishermen having gone out of them, were washing their nets. And having entered into one of the boats, which was Simon's, he asked him to put out a little from the land. And having sat down, he taught the crowds from the boat. read more.
And when he stopped speaking, he said to Simon, Put out into the depth, and let down your nets for a catch. And having answered, Simon said to him, Master, having toiled through the whole night, we took nothing, but at thy saying, I will let down the net. And having done this, they enclosed a great multitude of fishes, and their net was tearing. And they beckoned to their partners in the other boat, after coming, to assist them. And they came and filled both the boats, so as for them to be sunk down. But Simon Peter having seen, he fell down at Jesus' knees, saying, Depart from me, because I am a sinful man, Lord. For astonishment surrounded him, and all those with him, at the catch of the fishes that they caught,

Now it came to pass on one of those days, that he entered into a boat, also his disciples. And he said to them, Let us pass through to the other side of the lake. And they launched forth, but as they sailed he began to asleep. And a storm of wind came down on the lake, and they were filling up, and were in peril. And having approached, they awoke him, saying, Master, master, we are perishing. And having risen, he rebuked the wind and the raging of the water, and they ceased, and it became calm.

After these things Jesus manifested himself again to his disciples at the sea of Tiberias. And he revealed himself this way. There were together, Simon Peter, and Thomas called Didymus, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two other men of his disciples. Simon Peter says to them, I am going to harvest fish. They say to him, We also go with thee. They went forth, and straightaway entered into the boat. And in that night they caught nothing. read more.
But having now become morning, Jesus stood on the shore. However the disciples had not seen that it was Jesus. Therefore Jesus says to them, Children, have ye anything eatable? They answered him, No. And he said to them, Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and ye will find. Therefore they cast, and they were no longer able to draw it for the magnitude of fishes. That disciple therefore whom Jesus loved says to Peter, It is the Lord. So when Simon Peter heard that it is the Lord, he tied the coat around himself (for he was undressed), and threw himself into the sea. And the other disciples came in the skiff (for they were not far from the land, but about two hundred cubits off), dragging the net of the fishes. So when they came to the land, they saw a fire of coals set, and fish laying on it, and bread. Jesus says to them, Bring from the fishes that ye now caught. Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to land, full of great fishes, a hundred and fifty-three. And being so many, the net was not broken.
