Calming the Sea, also known as Calming the Storm, is one of the miracles performed by Jesus. The story of the miracle is recounted in the Bible in books Matthew, Mark, and Luke. The story begins after Jesus and his disciples were preaching in parables near the Sea of Galilee. Next, Jesus wanted to cross the "lake" and several boats followed them on the journey. During that time Jesus fell asleep while the waters were calm, however a storm abruptly appeared sending each disciple into varying states of panic. They all expressed doubt that Jesus cared about their safety and asked why they had no faith. He then calmed the storm and all the people present were amazed.
