Andreas, lines 510-600

God (still disguised as the seacaptain) notes that even the power of the ocean cannot prevail against a sailor who has the consent of God. Then He reveals to Andreas that He is in fact God and that Andreas has the grace of the Holy Spirit.

Andreas blesses God and tells Him how great He is.

God asks why the Jews would not believe that He (as Jesus) had come among them.

Andreas does not really answer the question, but instead tells God about all the wonderful things Jesus did on earth, including miracles of healing, raising the dead, changing water to wine and feeding the multitude with two fish and five loaves. Andreas also tells God that through Jesus’ teaching, men can now reach a future, pleasant joy.
