…the disciples were in trouble far away from land,
for a strong wind had risen,
and they were fighting heavy waves.
About three o’clock in the morning,
Jesus came toward them,
walking on the water.
When the disciples saw him walking on the water,
they were terrified.
In their fear, they cried out, “It’s a ghost!”
But Jesus spoke to them at once,
“Don’t be afraid,” he said.
“Take courage. I am here!”
