The disciples at sea (Mk 6:47-6:47)

“When evening came,

The boat was out

In the middle

Of the sea.

Jesus was alone

On the land.”

 

καὶ ὀψίας γενομένης ἦν τὸ πλοῖον ἐν μέσῳ τῆς θαλάσσης, καὶ αὐτὸς μόνος ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς.

 

This incident about the disciples in the boat at sea can also be found in Matthew, chapter 14:24, and John, chapter 6:18.  When evening came (καὶ ὀψίας γενομένης), the boat with the disciples was far from the land, out in the middle of the sea (ἦν τὸ πλοῖον ἐν μέσῳ τῆς θαλάσσης).  However, Jesus was alone on the land (καὶ αὐτὸς μόνος ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς).
