Evangelist Drowns Trying To Walk On Water

Pastor reportedly told congregation he could repeat miracle of Jesus

An evangelist who tried replicating Jesus’ miracle of walking on water has reportedly drowned off the western coast of Africa.

Pastor Franck Kabele, 35, told his congregation he could repeat the biblical miracle, and he attempted it from a beach in Gabon’s capital of Libreville.

“..He told churchgoers he’d had a revelation that if he had enough faith, he could walk on water like Jesus..”, an eyewitness told the Glasgow Daily Record.

“..He took his congregation to the beach saying he would walk across the Komo estuary, which takes 20 minutes by boat. He walked into the water, which soon passed over his head and he never came back..”

The New Testament records the story of Jesus walking on the Sea of Galilee as he approached his disciples in a boat.

“..And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea…” (Matthew 14:25)

As a researcher at Florida State University reported in April 2007, he believes he has a natural explanation for the account of Jesus’ miraculous walk on the surface of water – ice.

Professor of Oceanography Doron Nof and the co-authors of his study theorize that a rare combination of optimal water and atmospheric conditions resulted in a unique, localized freezing phenomenon called “springs ice,” according to, which specializes in news about science, technology, physics and space.
