Experiment - Floating orange: ‘Jesus walks on the water’

A cool science experiment with a floating orange

What happens if you take a peeled orange and an unpeeled orange and place them both in a jug of water? Which one will sink to the bottom? Which one will float? 

Maybe a strange question, but a brilliant way to illustrate the Bible story of Jesus walking on the water. (Matthew 14:22-36; Mark 6:45-56; John 6:16-24)

Fun to do as a preaching illustration, in a Sunday school lesson, during a children’s moment in church, in a school assembly or in an RE lesson.
