: Can anyone tell me the meaning of phrase "walking on water"?
: Thanks

In the Bible, one of the miracles performed by Jesus was walking on the water. I'll look up the specific Bible verses and post them when I have a bit more time. (On my way to work.) Jesus was in a small boat with his fisherman friends when the sea became choppy. He walked on the water to show them that they had nothing to fear.

Now when we say someone can "walk on water," it means he or she can do wonders.
