Chapter 24

Storm on the Sea of Galiliee

Jesus and His disciples were in a boat on the Sea of Galilee, and Jesus fell asleep. The wind began to blow very hard, and the waves were filling the boat with water. The disciples were afraid that it would sink. They woke Jesus and asked Him to help. Luke 8:22–24

Jesus commanded the wind to stop

The Savior stood up and commanded the wind to stop blowing and the waves to go down. The wind stopped blowing, and the sea became calm. Luke 8:24

The disciples were amazed

Jesus asked the disciples why they were afraid. He said that they should have more faith. They wanted to know what kind of man Jesus was to have even the wind and the waves obey Him. Luke 8:25
