Here is a neat little puzzle. The five thousand have been fed (Mt14:13-21; Mark 6:3-44), Jesus remains behind to dismiss the crowd and sends the disciples across the lake to Gennesaret. Jesus has gone up the mountain side to find a quiet place for prayer but the boat full of disciples experience one of those sudden storms on the sea of Galilee. Their craft is battered by strong winds and waves. Suddenly there is Jesus coming toward them on the water. They fear it is a ghost but Peter asks permission to walk out on the water to Jesus.
