Passage: John 6:16-24 (RSV)

John 6

16When evening came, his disciples went down to the sea,
17got into a boat, and started across the sea to Caper'na-um. It was now dark, and Jesus had not yet come to them.
18The sea rose because a strong wind was blowing.
19When they had rowed about three or four miles, they saw Jesus walking on the sea and drawing near to the boat. They were frightened,
20but he said to them, "It is I; do not be afraid."
21Then they were glad to take him into the boat, and immediately the boat was at the land to which they were going.
22On the next day the people who remained on the other side of the sea saw that there had been only one boat there, and that Jesus had not entered the boat with his disciples, but that his disciples had gone away alone.
23However, boats from Tiber'i-as came near the place where they ate the bread after the Lord had given thanks.
24So when the people saw that Jesus was not there, nor his disciples, they themselves got into the boats and went to Caper'na-um, seeking Jesus.
