There are two miracles of Jesus recorded in the Gospels that involve the water. In one from the Gospel of Matthew he walks on the water out to a boat with his disciples.

The Gospel of Matthew captures both of Jesus’ water-related miracles, but the story of Jesus calming the rocky seas comes from Matthew, Mark, and Luke’s gospels. As Jesus and his disciples crossed the Sea of Galilee an intense storm whips up the waters and crashes massive waves into the boat.
As the wind and waves threaten to flood and overturn the boat, Jesus is said to be calmly napping. His terrified disciples wake him and say “Teacher, don’t you care if we drown.” Responding to this, Jesus rises from his slumber to rebuke the wind and say to the waves “Be Still!”
