THE WIND AND WATER CEASED AT JESUS'S WORD
One day Jesus told his men, “Let us go on the water to the far side.” Then they took him in the dinghy. There in the dinghy Jesus was sleeping soundly.
Then a really big wind arose, the water became breaking waves, they were entering the dinghy, they were filling the dinghy. Jesus' men became really frightened. They woke him.
“Boss! Truly the water will swallow us!”
Jesus rose up from his sleep, he said to the two, “Wind! Die down! Water! Go down!” In accordance with his word the wind died down at once, the water went down in that way.
Jesus asked his men, “Why were you afraid? Why did you not trust me?”
They were really puzzling. They said to each other,
“The wind and the water listen to him. Truly he is the boss for the water and the wind! What sort of person is this Jesus?”
They were puzzling about that. They were afraid of him.
