Jesus Walks on the Water
The Sacred Geometry Story
Three of the four gospels have an account of how Jesus walked around the ship holding the twelve disciples in the middle of the Sea of Galilee at the fourth watch of the night during a raging storm. The disciples were terrified and thought Jesus was a phantom. Jesus told them "Have courage, I am, do not fear." He entered the boat and calmed the storm. The story ends with an inexplicable reference to "loaves and hardened hearts" as they came into Gennesaret and anchored.
A sacred geometry story has rules of tangency and step by step construction, and if you play by the rules, virtually anything is possible, even the ability to walk on water! The gematria value of the verses, the words thought by the disciples, and the words spoken by Jesus all combine to create a series of moving diagrams of Jesus as he walks on the sea. The sacred geometry solutions on the following pages will show how Matthew and John used Mark’s story as a template to compose their own versions of the story.
Mark and Matthew's versions are nearly identical except that in Matthew’s version Simon Peter also walks on the water. The earlier story is Mark's version, who according to church father Papias (ca. AD 135) was Simon Peter's interpreter. The hearsay word of Papias that a person named Mark actually recorded Simon Peter's memoirs brings up the following two questions: If Simon Peter actually walked on the water with Jesus, why didn't Peter tell Mark? If Peter did tell Mark, why didn't Mark write about it? This magnificent riddle proves that Jesus can do anything, even walking on water, using the powers of gematria and sacred geometry.
