May 7, 2011 by bible sharing online
When it was evening, the disciples of Jesus went down to the sea, embarked in a boat, and went across the sea to Capernaum. It had already grown dark, and Jesus had not yet come to them. The sea was stirred up because a strong wind was blowing. When they had rowed about three or four miles, they saw Jesus walking on the sea and coming near the boat, and they began to be afraid. But he said to them,
“It is I. Do not be afraid.”
They wanted to take him into the boat, but the boat immediately arrived at the shore to which they were heading.
Lumakad si Jesus sa Ibabaw ng Tubig
Nang magtakipsilim na, lumusong ang kaniyang mga alagad sa lawa. Sumakay sila sa bangka. Sila ay papatawid ng lawa patungong Capernaum. Dumilim na at hindi pa nila kasama si Jesus. Sa pag-ihip ng malakas na hangin, ang lawa ay naging maalon. Nang sila ay nakagaod na ng may lima o anim na kilometro nakita nila si Jesus.
Siya ay lumalakad sa ibabaw ng lawa papalapit sa bangka at sila ay natakot. Ngunit sinabi niya sa kanila: Ako ito, huwag kayong matakot. Malugod nga nilang pinasakay si Jesus sa bangka. Kapagdaka, ang bangka ay nasa lupa na ng kanilang pupuntahan.
