Jesus Saving Peter Christian Art Painting by Bertram Poole

The disciples sit awestruck in the boat having witnessed Peter walk on the water towards Jesus and then suddenly he starts sinking and shouts "Lord save me." Jesus immediately puts out His Hand and pulls Peter up! Apart from the disiples, bouncing in the boat on the rough sea, other witnesses are the forces of darkness which have whipped up the wind and the water to frighten Peter -  here represented by dark eerie shapes in the waves and the sky.  The light from heaven illuminating Jesus is indicative of His pushing back the darkness and showing his disciples more of Himself and His mission to bring Light into a dark world.
