Would it be fair to say that IHSOUN is the agent of PERIPATOUNTA EPI
THS QALASSHS? I would be tempted to say that IHSOUN is also the agent
of EGGUS TOU PLOIOU GINOMENON, i.e., that IHSOUN is an explict agent
for both participles. The disciples were watching Jesus (an agent)
walking on the sea and Jesus (an agent) drawing near to the boat.
