Luke 8:22-25

Jesus Calms the Storm

22 One day Jesus said to his disciples, “Let us go over to the other side of the lake.” So they got into a boat and set out. 23 As they sailed, he fell asleep. A squall came down on the lake, so that the boat was being swamped, and they were in great danger.

24 The disciples went and woke him, saying, “Master, Master, we’re going to drown!”

He got up and rebuked the wind and the raging waters; the storm subsided, and all was calm. 25 “Where is your faith?” he asked his disciples.

In fear and amazement they asked one another, “Who is this? He commands even the winds and the water, and they obey him.”

Many of the stories of Jesus’ life are told in multiple Gospels. We’re highlighting the story from one Gospel. When it is told in other Gospels, we will also share the scripture reference(s) in case you would like to read and compare the similarities and differences in the way the Gospel writers told Jesus story.
