Sea of Galilee: Walking on Water

Several Gospel stories come to life when we see images of “the Lake of Gennesaret” or “Lake Tiberias:”  “The water braces against the bow of the boat as the Disciples press into the middle of the sea. It is dark, but they think that they see something approaching from the distance, across the surface of the water. Amazed, they recognize their Rabbi, Jesus Christ, as he walks across the surface of the water towards them, calling Peter’s name” (Matthew 14:22-33).
