Jesus Calms The Storm

Jesus withdrew to the sea with his disciples, and a crowd followed him
from Galilee. Also from Judea, Jerusalem, Idumea the other side of the
Jordan, and from the country about Tyre and Sidon a great number,
having heard what he was doing, came to him. So he told his disciples to
have a small boat ready for him to keep him from being crushed by the
crowd; for he had healed so many that all who were sick and in trouble
were pressing forward to touch him. And whenever those who had evil
spirits saw him, they fell down before him and cried, "You are the Son
of God." But again and again he commanded them not to tell who he was.

In the evening Jesus said to his disciples, "Let us cross to the other
side." So, leaving the crowd, they took him with them in the boat just
as he was; and there were other boats with his. A heavy wind-storm arose
and the waves began to break into the boat so that it was filling; but
Jesus was in the stern asleep on the cushion. So they woke him and said
to him, "Master, is it nothing to you that we are lost?" And he awoke
and reproved the wind, and said to the sea, "Peace, be still!" And
immediately the wind ceased and the sea was calm; and he said to them,
"Why are you afraid? Why do you not have faith?" But they were filled
with wonder and said to one another, "Who then is he, that even the wind
and the sea obey him?"
