What if they had Twitter back when the disciples were around.
I think I can see Peter's series of tweets...
Fishing_Pete: we are out on a lake rowing our backs out. Jesus no where around.
Fishing_Pete: getting real dark, storms coming
Jesus_loves_John: I Think we should turn this boat around.
Fishing_Pete: Weather hits us
Jesus_loves_John: Think I see a Ghost of Jesus
Fishing_Pete: Man am I scared.
We have the advantage of the Word to follow every day, and 2000 years of history about Jesus. We should not fault the disciples when they were scarred, we most likely would react the same way.
