Jesus is a Spirit. That was the whole point of saying he walked on water and was born of the Holy Spirit. I believe that the Spirit of Jesus is the one that told all those stories to people to explain Himself. The ancient Jesus knew and is God from Zypa!

Answer #11 | 23/07 2014 15:49
It isn't necessary to explain it, because he didn't. It's standard in all religious myths for gods to be described as performing miracles, doing miraculous, magical things. That's the only "explanation" you need.

Well previously Jesus had told the disciples to get into the boat and go to the other side of the sea(to get away from the crowd so they may be refreshed and get some rest),Jesus stayed behind to disperse the crowd.He after having dispersed the crowd went by himslef ot pray and be refreshed by the Father.he during some point in time saw them strugging against the storm gaining no ground by their efforts Jesus precded to go where He told them to go,which is to the other side of the sea but was interrupted by them asking for delieverance(them being scared fearing for their lives beiliving him to be a spirit of which they were told they'd see before they would die on th sea)then peter asked Jesus if it was indeed him which they saw, to allow him to come to Him (Jesus) on the water of which Jesus said ok,come on) Jesus walked on water ,in my opinion because there was no other way for thim to cross it being very early in the morning and no one beside the disciples on the sea or ]perhaps being up to ask to take him or would even consider it because of the storm.God gives us power/the ability to do what's necessary (his will and what we do along those lines of which He's said),even if it overrides/supercedes the things concerning natural laws.

Answer #21 | 23/07 2014 15:52
Jesus walking on water is one of the miracles of Jesus in the Gospels. Accounts of the miracle appear in three Gospels: Matthew 14:22-33, Mark 6:45-52 and John 6:16-21. Christian teachings consider the episode a miracle intended to show the importance of faith, and the control of Jesus over nature. Biblical scholars view the episode as instrumental in asserting the divinity of Jesus among early Christians. In this view, the episode's demonstration that God the Father is willing to share divine power with his son Jesus impacted the affirmation of the belief in the divinity of Jesus in the Christian ecumenical creeds.
