About the Cover: The Creator in His majesty comes striding upon the waves of the sea. It is no wonder that disciples were terrified! But with the simple words, “Take heart; it is I,” He reveals that He comes in peace. Jesus, fully God and at the same time fully man, comes to us in humility. The One through whom all things were made brings peace through His life, death, and resurrection! © 2020 CPH Photo: © Gino Santa Maria/ Shutterstock, Inc.
