      noted there are no Jewish stories where the hero walks on the sea. Only
      Yahweh does this (see Job 9:8, espec. LXX) and indeed much of the language
      of water-walking story echoes theophanic language from Israel's scriptures
      (as J.P. Heil and Blackburn have documented).

      So, once again: how does one explain the origin of such a story among Jewish
      monotheistic Christians?"

      Easy. Early High Christology.
