Stories from the Life of Christ Told to the Children - Janet Kelman

Jesus Asleep in the Boat

And the same day when the even was come, Jesus saith unto them, "Let us pass over unto the other side."

And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he was in the boat. And they launched forth. But as they sailed he fell asleep; and there came down a storm of wind on the lake, and the waves beat into the boat, so that it was now full; and he was in the hinder part of the boat asleep on a pillow. And they came to him, and as woke him saying, "Master, Master, we perish."

Then he arose and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, "Peace, be still."

And there was a great calm. And he said unto them, "Where is your faith?"

And they being afraid wondered, saying one to another, "What manner of man is this? for he commandeth even the winds and the sea, and they obey him." And they came over unto they other side of the sea.
