The disciples boarded a ship to cross to the other side of the Sea of Galilee, without Jesus who went up the mountain to pray alone. John alone specifies they were headed “toward Capernaum”. During the journey on the sea, the disciples were distressed by wind and waves, but saw Jesus walking towards them on the sea. John’s Gospel specifies that they were five or six kilometers away from their departure point. The disciples were startled to see Jesus, but he told them not to be afraid. Matthew’s account adds that Peter asked Jesus, “if it is you”, to tell him, or command him, to come to Jesus on the water (waters).
