Re: nonsense

[quote=Lee Mulgrew]the thruth this statement is false, the translation could read that he eithter walked on, walked through or on the water depending on your defenition of the aramaic text /QUOTE]

I should probably just let this go. but... since you were talking about Jesus walking on water... um, I'm pretty sure the New Testament was written in Greek, not Aramaic.

And since the exact translation seems important to you, the Greek word used to describe Jesus walking on the water is "epi" (spelled epsilon pi iota... sorry I don't have a Greek letter font).

The translation of "epi" is "on" or "upon"
