Walk on Water

23 February 08 | Posted in Bible

The miracles of Jesus can be categorized into four types: healings, exorcisms, the ability to bring people back from the dead, and power over nature.

Miracles involving power over nature are attested to by several of the gospels, most notably Mark, Matthew and John.  Some of these include the withering of a fig tree outside the gates of Jerusalem, the calming of a storm, turning water into wine, and probably the most famous, walking on water.

In a miracle described by Mark, Matthew and John, Jesus walks out onto a lake in order to greet a boat containing the disciples. According to Matthew, following Jesus’ example Peter is also able to walk on water. walk-on-water.jpg
