There are several accounts of the disciples in a boat trying hard to keep control of it as a storm came up in the middle of the night. The references are Matthew 8 and 14, Mark 4 and 6, and John 6. I refrain from posting the actual texts here as it would make this… Continue reading Disciples at Sea
