In the gospel story, Jesus and Peter walked on water. What is this bizarre story all about? Modern enlightened readers may have some difficulty with the credibility of stories of people walking on water. This couldn't be true. Although incredible, stories of people walking on water are not all that rare. Not long ago, I watched the illusionist Chris Angel on "Mindfreak" walk across a Las Vegas swimming pool. It just meant he could place clear plexiglass just under the surface and fool people into thinking he was like Jesus. More recently, the British illusionist Dynamo walked across the River Thames. I even read that Joseph Smith, the Mormon prophet, and some of his disciples could walk on waterwell, with hidden planks under the water.
