Jesus in Boat Sculpture

This statue of Jesus keeps a watchful eye on the shoreline of Corpus Christi from his boat in front of the First United Methodist Church. The landmark hosts the title, "It is I;" taken from the Gospel of Mark 6:50 that reads: And Jesus said, "Take Heart. It is I; Have No Fear."
