Have you ever stopped to wonder and chuckle at the miracle story of Jesus walking on the water? What was that all about? We can understand that he healed people, cast out demons and fed the hungry–those are all nice reasonable things for a good teacher and a wonder worker to do.
But what was with the walking on the water? Was it a stunt? Was he showing off? Was he simply taking a short cut? “Hey guys, sorry I was late, but why did you leave without me?”
As with the story of the feeding of the 5,000, this is astounding and disturbing. The modernists would say, “Well, this story was added by the early church to make Jesus more of an amazing God-like character. It didn’t really happen.”
