Je­sus re­vealed him­self again to his dis­ci­ples at the Sea of Tiberias. He re­vealed him­self in this way. To­gether were Si­mon Peter, Thomas called Didy­mus, Nathanael from Cana in Galilee, Zebedee's sons, and two oth­ers of his dis­ci­ples. Si­mon Peter said to them, “I am go­ing fish­ing.” They said to him, “We also will come with you.” So they went out and got into the boat, but that night they caught noth­ing. When it was al­ready dawn, Je­sus was stand­ing on the shore; but the dis­ci­ples did not re­al­ize that it was Je­sus. Je­sus said to them, “Chil­dren, have you caught any­thing to eat?” They an­swered him, “No.” So he said to them, “Cast the net over the right side of the boat and you will find some­thing.” So they cast it, and were not able to pull it in be­cause of the num­ber of fish. So the dis­ci­ple whom Je­sus loved said to Peter, “It is the Lord.” When Si­mon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he tucked in his gar­ment, for he was lightly clad, and jumped into the sea. The other dis­ci­ples came in the boat, for they were not far from shore, only about a hun­dred yards, drag­ging the net with the fish. When they climbed out on shore, they saw a char­coal fire with fish on it and bread. Je­sus said to them, “Bring some of the fish you just caught.” So Si­mon Peter went over and dragged the net ashore full of one hun­dred fifty-three large fish. Even though there were so many, the net was not torn. Je­sus said to them, “Come, have break­fast.” And none of the dis­ci­ples dared to ask him, “Who are you?” be­cause they re­al­ized it was the Lord. Je­sus came over and took the bread and gave it to them, and in like man­ner the fish. This was now the third time Je­sus was re­vealed to his dis­ci­ples after be­ing raised from the dead.
