“Then he got into the boat and his disciples followed him. Suddenly a furious storm came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping. The disciples went and woke him, saying, “Lord, save us! We’re going to drown!” He replied, “You of little faith, why are you so afraid?” Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm. The men were amazed and asked, “What kind of man is this? Even the winds and the waves obey him!” — Matthew 8:23-27 NIV

Rembrandt’s depiction of “Christ in the Storm on the Sea of Galilee” was the only seascape he painted. In 1990 it was stolen from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum by theives dressed as police officers, and it hasn't been recovered since.
