Walking on Water
I've had a hard time deciding what to build lately, so I resorted to Bible stories. The result was this creation, which depicts Jesus walking on the water. Thanks for viewing!
About this creation
This is my New Testament entry for the Lego Biblical MOCs Contest.

My Old Testament entry can be viewed here.



During the fourth watch of the night Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake. When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified. "It's a ghost," they said, and cried out in fear. But Jesus immediately said to them: "Take courage! It is I. Don't be afraid."
"Lord, if it's you," Peter replied, "tell me to come to you on the water."
"Come," he said. (Matthew 14:25-29a, NIV)




Most of the Disciples were fishermen, so I loaded the boat with the items of their trade. And I only included one other disciple (in addition to Peter), to represent all twelve. Filling such a small boat with twelve figs would have looked too crowded.





Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came towards Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, creid out, "Lord, save me!" (Matthew 14:29b-30, NIV)



Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. "You of little faith," he said, "why did you doubt?" And when they climbed into the boat, the wind died down. Then those who were in the boat worshiped him, saying, "Truly you are the Son of God." (Matthew 14:31-33, NIV)



A bonus pic of the complete water pattern (and a chance to show off some of my new circular 1x1 trans pieces).

Quoting George G. Dear Ian, of course you can use my water technique! I will have to post some sort of "How to" guide because you have to set all of the cheeses in a certain pattern to give the wave effect. And if you can get them from a pick-a-brick wall in a LEGO store like I did, it will be much cheaper! And lovely model BTW, cool water ;)
Alright thanks George! I've studied your build numerable times and I think I've got the gist of your pattern, but separate instructions would be awesome! I'm sure others would appreciate it as well. I honestly think you've developed the best Lego water pattern out there! It really gives a great sense of motion. Trans-studs don't quite do it for me. Oh, and while I'm typing away, great job representing us TFOL in the MO! And thanks for the comment.

Quoting Blake Baer Ian, you and your friends are incredible builders and incredible Christians. You have deserved this long overdue spot on my favorite builders list. Thank you for being an inspiration and an encouragement to me.
Thanks Blake, that means a lot to me. I'm not really sure what else to say. You've been a huge inspiration and encouragement to me too! And I know that my friends and I all admire your stand for the Gospel here on the pages, and of course, your incredible building talent!

Nice Jesus. This is so cool looking. Sometimes I wish that I just got sets for pieces because I have no fish, no good faces, no food pieces, no pieces for Jesus! Ugh. This is very cool, and I love those waves. Just outstanding. I've only made one Biblical MOC, but it isn't as outstanding as yours, and you are to be commended.

Quoting Nick Pascale Always have faith in yourself, when you believe in you and acknowledge it you give praise to God who created you! Falter like Peter and don't worry Jesus will put out his hand and guide you! It seems the Holy spirit inspired your work! Did you think of giving Jesus a 2x2x2 Slope Brick for a tunic bottom?
Thanks Mr. Pascale! I did consider using the 2x2x2 slope piece, but I think it would have detracted from the "walking" aspect. Using normal Lego legs just seemed to capture the concept better. Thanks again!

  January 29, 2012
Awesome! I was just about to post a biblical MOC too! I really like the guy in the boat, and and interesting design for Peter. I like how one hand is removed so it is 'submerged' in the water. I see you put that bricklink order for studs to good use. :D The only thing I'm not sure about is the Norrington face for Jesus. And also I second Mark's photographical critique. White backgrounds are nice, but turning up the exposure on certain angles develops this almost 'sun-beam' like glare that makes your eye swim and makes it hard to focus on the MOC. But its not that big of a deal. Doesn't detract too much from the awesomeness of the creation. :) By the way, I love the base! ~ Christopher

Like your others this is very good Ian! I suggest however that you bring some of the brightness down on your pictures some of them are a little hard to see.
