A Story

This is an imaginary account of what might have happened next.

Jesus and his disciples were out on the lake one day when a really big storm blew up and the disciples were worried that the boat might sink. Jesus was asleep and the disciples woke him because they were so afraid.

“Master” they said “don’t you care that we are all going to drown?”

“Why are you so afraid?” said Jesus. Then he stood up in the boat and said “Peace. Be still.”

Immediately there was a flat calm.

“What kind of man is this?” whispered the disciples to each other “Even the wind and waves obey him.”

There was a respectful silence for a few moments. Then Philip said “Hang on a minute. How are we going to get home?”

“Start rowing” said Jesus. Then he lay down again and went back to sleep.
