Chapter 21

Jesus Commands the Winds and the Waves

“Chapter 21: Jesus Commands the Winds and the Waves,” New Testament Stories (2005), 53


Jesus and His disciples were in a boat on the Sea of Galilee. 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.

The Savior commanded the wind to stop blowing and the waves to go down. The wind stopped, and the sea became calm.

Jesus asked the disciples why they were afraid. He said that they should have more faith. They wondered what kind of man could command even the wind and the sea.
