When Jesus walked on water, is it possible he was supported by vacuum fluctuations under his feet, and this is why he didnt sink? Is there a quantum mechanical probability, no matter how small, that a person (any person) could walk on water supported by vacuum fluctuations in between the water and his feet?

Quantum states have extremely tiny tails representing all sorts of
different realities, including cars hopping over buildings, etc.
There's no need to invoke vacuum fluctuations in particular to get all
sorts of quantum 'possibilities'. Of course, there are other possible
explanations for those accounts.
