What About the Miracles of Jesus?

Do the miracles of Jesus mean anything? Yes, I believe they do. Why? Because Jesus taught a lot by what He did. And one of the things He did was to perform miracles. What did He teach by working miracles? Jesus worked miracles to prove Who He was. Who was He? He was God in the flesh. To prove this truth from what He did, let's look at the scriptures:

"Then the Jews surrounded Him and said to Him, How long do You keep us in doubt? If You are the Christ, tell us plainly. Jesus answered them,
"I told you, and you do not believe. The works that I do in My Father's name, they bear witness of Me. But you do not believe, because you are not of My sheep, as I said to you. My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father's hand. I and My Father are one."
Then the Jews took up stones again to stone Him. Jesus answered them,
"Many good works I have shown you from My Father. For which of those works do you stone Me?"
The Jews answered Him, saying, For a good work we do not stone You, but for blasphemy, and because You, being a Man, make Yourself God"
(John 10:24-33).

"If I do not do the works of My Father, do not believe Me; but if I do, though you do not believe Me, believe the works, that you may know and believe that the Father is in Me, and I in Him"
(John 10:37-38).

The Apostle John believed that the miracles of Jesus was done so that we might have reason to believe and follow Jesus:

"And truly Jesus did many other signs in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in this book; but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name"
(John 20:30-31).

Only God could have done what Jesus did. Never before in history had this been done before. Moses, Elijah, and Elisha were used by God to create a few miracles but none on the scale of what Jesus did.

There were 35 miracles that Jesus did that are recorded in the sum total of all 4 gospel accounts. He did miracles concerning nature- such as the draught of fishes, stilling the storm, and walking on the water. There were miracles of healing. He "healed every manner of disease and sickness". He also cast out demons, raised the dead, and fed the multitudes twice.

The miracles of Jesus were to not only help people- because Jesus was "other centered" rather than self centered- but to prove to the general population that He was God incarnate. He was their Messiah:
And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth
(John 1:14).

Here are a few miracles that Jesus Christ did to show that He is a God of love.

Yeshua Ha Meshiach...Jesus our Messiah

Jesus Raised Some From The Dead:
Jairus' daughter:
"As Jesus was saying this, the leader of a synagogue came and knelt down before Him. "My daughter has just died," he said, "but You can bring her back to life again if You just come and lay Your hand upon her." As Jesus and the disciples were going to the official's home, a woman who had had a hemorrhage for twelve years came up behind Him. She touched the fringe of his robe, for she thought, "If I can just touch His robe, I will be healed." Jesus turned around and said to her:
"Daughter, be encouraged! Your faith has made you well."
And the woman was healed at that moment. When Jesus arrived at the official's home, He noticed the noisy crowds and heard the funeral music. He said,
"Go away, for the girl isn't dead; she's only asleep."
But the crowd laughed at Him. When the crowd was finally outside, Jesus went in and took the girl by the hand, and she stood up! The report of this miracle swept through the entire countryside"
(Matthew 9:18-26).
The widow's only son at the town of Nain:
"Soon afterward Jesus went with his disciples to the village of Nain, with a great crowd following Him. A funeral procession was coming out as He approached the village gate. The boy who had died was the only son of a widow, and many mourners from the village were with her. When the Lord saw her, His heart overflowed with compassion.
"Don't cry!"
He said. Then He walked over to the coffin and touched it, and the bearers stopped.
"Young man," he said, "get up."
Then the dead boy sat up and began to talk to those around him! And Jesus gave him back to his mother"
(Luke 7:11-15).
His Friend Lazarus at Bethany:
"Then they came to the grave. It was a cave with a stone rolled across its entrance. "Roll the stone aside," Jesus told them. But Martha, the dead man's sister, said, "Lord, by now the smell will be terrible because he has been dead for four days." Jesus responded,
"Didn't I tell you that you will see God's glory if you believe?"
So they rolled the stone aside. Then Jesus looked up to heaven and said,
"Father, thank you for hearing Me. You always hear Me, but I said it out loud for the sake of all these people standing here, so they will believe You sent Me." Then Jesus shouted, "Lazarus, come out!"
And Lazarus came out, bound in graveclothes, his face wrapped in a headcloth. Jesus told them:
"Unwrap him and let him go!"
(John 11:38-44).

Some of His Miracles of Healing:

Healing of the man that was paralyzed:
"Some people brought to him a paralyzed man on a mat. Seeing their faith, Jesus said to the paralyzed man:
"Take heart, son! Your sins are forgiven."
"Blasphemy! This Man talks like He is God!" some of the teachers of religious law said among themselves. Jesus knew what they were thinking, so He asked them:
"Why are you thinking such evil thoughts? Is it easier to say, `Your sins are forgiven' or `Get up and walk'? I will prove that I, the Son of Man, have the authority on earth to forgive sins."
Then Jesus turned to the paralyzed man and said,
"Stand up, take your mat, and go on home, because you are healed!"
And the man jumped up and went home! Fear swept through the crowd as they saw this happen right before their eyes. They praised God for sending a Man with such great authority"
(Matthew 9:2-8).
Healing of two blind men who had faith:
"After Jesus left the girl's home, two blind men followed along behind Him, shouting, "Son of David, have mercy on us!" They went right into the house where He was staying, and Jesus asked them:
"Do you believe I can make you see?"
"Yes, Lord," they told Him, "we do." Then He touched their eyes and said,
"Because of your faith, it will happen."
And suddenly they could see! Jesus sternly warned them:
"Don't tell anyone about this."
But instead, they spread His fame all over the region"
(Matthew 9:27-31).
A man who was deaf:
"Jesus left Tyre and went to Sidon, then back to the Sea of Galilee and the region of the Ten Towns. A deaf man with a speech impediment was brought to Him, and the people begged Jesus to lay His hands on the man to heal him. Jesus led him to a private place away from the crowd. He put his fingers into the man's ears. Then, spitting onto His own fingers, He touched the man's tongue with the spittle. And looking up to heaven, He sighed and commanded:
"Be opened!"
Instantly the man could hear perfectly and speak plainly! Jesus told the crowd not to tell anyone, but the more He told them not to, the more they spread the news, for they were completely amazed. Again and again they said, "Everything He does is wonderful. He even heals those who are deaf and mute"
(Mark 7:31-37).
Healing of a blind man at the town of Bethsaida:
"When they arrived at Bethsaida, some people brought a blind man to Jesus, and they begged Him to touch and heal the man. Jesus took the blind man by the hand and led him out of the village. Then, spitting on the man's eyes, He laid His hands on him and asked,
"Can you see anything now?"
The man looked around. "Yes," he said, "I see people, but I can't see them very clearly. They look like trees walking around." Then Jesus placed His hands over the man's eyes again. As the man stared intently, his sight was completely restored, and he could see everything clearly. Jesus sent him home, saying,
"Don't go back into the village on your way home"
(Mark 8:22-26).
The healing at Jerusalem of a man blind from birth:
"As Jesus was walking along, He saw a man who had been blind from birth. "Teacher," His disciples asked Him, "why was this man born blind? Was it a result of his own sins or those of his parents?"
"It was not because of his sins or his parents' sins," Jesus answered. "He was born blind so the power of God could be seen in him. All of us must quickly carry out the tasks assigned us by the One who sent Me, because there is little time left before the night falls and all work comes to an end. But while I am still here in the world, I AM the light of the world."
Then he spit on the ground, made mud with the saliva, and smoothed the mud over the blind man's eyes. He told him,
"Go and wash in the pool of Siloam" (Siloam means Sent).
So the man went and washed, and came back seeing!"
(John 9:1-7).
The healing of a crippled woman:
"One Sabbath day as Jesus was teaching in a synagogue, He saw a woman who had been crippled by an evil spirit. She had been bent double for eighteen years and was unable to stand up straight. When Jesus saw her, He called her over and said:
"Woman, you are healed of your sickness!"
Then He touched her, and instantly she could stand straight. How she praised and thanked God! But the leader in charge of the synagogue was indignant that Jesus had healed her on the Sabbath day. "There are six days of the week for working," he said to the crowd. "Come on those days to be healed, not on the Sabbath." But the Lord replied,
"You hypocrite! You work on the Sabbath day! Don't you untie your ox or your donkey from their stalls on the Sabbath and lead them out for water? Wasn't it necessary for Me, even on the Sabbath day, to free this dear woman from the bondage in which Satan has held her for eighteen years?"
This shamed His enemies. And all the people rejoiced at the wonderful things He did"
(Luke 13:10-17).
The healing of ten lepers:
"As Jesus continued on toward Jerusalem, He reached the border between Galilee and Samaria. As He entered a village there, ten lepers stood at a distance, crying out, "Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!" He looked at them and said:
"Go show yourselves to the priests."
And as they went, their leprosy disappeared. One of them, when he saw that he was healed, came back to Jesus, shouting, "Praise God, I'm healed!" He fell face down on the ground at Jesus' feet, thanking Him for what He had done. This man was a Samaritan. Jesus asked,
"Didn't I heal ten men? Where are the other nine? Does only this foreigner return to give glory to God?" And Jesus said to the man, "Stand up and go. Your faith has made you well"
(Luke 17:11-19).
Healing of Peter's mother-in-law:
"When Jesus arrived at Peter's house, Peter's mother-in-law was in bed with a high fever. But when Jesus touched her hand, the fever left her. Then she got up and prepared a meal for Him. That evening many demon-possessed people were brought to Jesus. All the spirits fled when He commanded them to leave; and He healed all the sick. This fulfilled the word of the Lord through Isaiah, who said, "He took our sicknesses and removed our diseases"
(Matthew 8:14-17).
Healing of the Roman Centurion's servant:
"When Jesus arrived in Capernaum, a Roman officer came and pleaded with Him, "Lord, my young servant lies in bed, paralyzed and racked with pain." Jesus said,
"I will come and heal him."
Then the officer said, "Lord, I am not worthy to have You come into my home. Just say the word from where You are, and my servant will be healed! I know, because I am under the authority of my superior officers and I have authority over my soldiers. I only need to say, ‘Go,‘ and they go, or ‘Come,‘ and they come. And if I say to my slaves, ‘Do this or that,‘ they do it." When Jesus heard this, He was amazed. Turning to the crowd, He said:
"I tell you the truth, I haven't seen faith like this in all the land of Israel! And I tell you this, that many Gentiles will come from all over the world and sit down with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob at the feast in the Kingdom of Heaven. But many Israelites- those for whom the Kingdom was prepared- will be cast into outer darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth." Then Jesus said to the Roman officer, "Go on home. What you have believed has happened." And the young servant was healed that same hour"
(Matthew 8:5-13)
Healing of the high priest's servant:
"And one of them (Peter) slashed at the high priest's servant (with a sword) and cut off his right ear. But Jesus said:
"Don't resist anymore."
And He touched the place where the man's ear had been and healed him"
(Luke 22:50-51).
"News about Him spread all over Syria, and people brought to Him all who were ill with various diseases, those suffering severe pain, the demon-possessed, the epileptics and the paralytics, and He healed them all"
(Matthew 4:24).

Deliverance from Demon Possession:
A man delivered in the synagogue:
"Jesus and His companions went to the town of Capernaum, and every Sabbath day He went into the synagogue and taught the people. They were amazed at His teaching, for He taught as One who had real authority- quite unlike the teachers of religious law. A man possessed by an evil spirit was in the synagogue, and he began shouting, "Why are you bothering us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know Who you are- the Holy One sent from God!" Jesus cut him short:
"Be silent! Come out of the man."
At that, the evil spirit screamed and threw the man into a convulsion, but then he left him. Amazement gripped the audience, and they began to discuss what had happened. "What sort of new teaching is this?" they asked excitedly. "It has such authority! Even evil spirits obey His orders!" The news of what He had done spread quickly through that entire area of Galilee"
(Mark 1:21-28).
A blind and mute man is delivered:
"Then a demon-possessed man, who was both blind and unable to talk, was brought to Jesus. He healed the man so that he could both speak and see. The crowd was amazed. "Could it be that Jesus is the Son of David, the Messiah?" they wondered out loud"
(Matthew 12:22-23).
Two men were delivered near the Gadarenes:
"When Jesus arrived on the other side of the lake in the land of the Gadarenes, two men who were possessed by demons met Him. They lived in a cemetery and were so dangerous that no one could go through that area. They began screaming at Him, "Why are you bothering us, Son of God? You have no right to torture us before God's appointed time!" A large herd of pigs was feeding in the distance, so the demons begged, "If you cast us out, send us into that herd of pigs."
"All right, go!" Jesus commanded them.
So the demons came out of the men and entered the pigs, and the whole herd plunged down the steep hillside into the lake and drowned in the water. The herdsmen fled to the nearby city, telling everyone what happened to the demon-possessed men. The entire town came out to meet Jesus, but they begged Him to go away and leave them alone"
(Matthew 8:28-34).
A Canaanite woman's daughter is delivered:
"Jesus then left Galilee and went north to the region of Tyre and Sidon. A Gentile woman who lived there came to Him, pleading, "Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David! For my daughter has a demon in her, and it is severely tormenting her." But Jesus gave her no reply- not even a word. Then His disciples urged Him to send her away. "Tell her to leave," they said. "She is bothering us with all her begging." Then He said to the woman:
"I was sent only to help the people of Israel- God's lost sheep- not the Gentiles."
But she came and worshiped Him and pleaded again, "Lord, help me!"
"It isn't right to take food from the children and throw it to the dogs, He said."
"Yes, Lord," she replied, "but even dogs are permitted to eat the crumbs (of grace) that fall beneath their master's table."
"Woman," Jesus said to her, "your faith is great. Your request is granted."
And her daughter was instantly healed"
(Matthew 15:21-28).
Deliverance of a demon possessed epileptic boy:
"When they arrived at the foot of the mountain, a huge crowd was waiting for them. A man came and knelt before Jesus and said, "Lord, have mercy on my son, because he has seizures and suffers terribly. He often falls into the fire or into the water. So I brought him to Your disciples, but they couldn't heal him."
Jesus replied: "You stubborn, faithless people! How long must I be with you until you believe? How long must I put up with you? Bring the boy to Me."
Then Jesus rebuked the demon in the boy, and it left him. From that moment the boy was well. Afterward the disciples asked Jesus privately, "Why couldn't we cast out that demon?"
"You didn't have enough faith," Jesus told them. "I assure you, even if you had faith as small as a mustard seed you could say to this mountain, `Move from here to there,' and it would move. Nothing would be impossible"
(Matthew 17:14-21).

Miracles Involving Nature:
Miracle of a withered up fig tree:
"In the morning, as Jesus was returning to Jerusalem, He was hungry, and He noticed a fig tree beside the road. He went over to see if there were any figs on it, but there were only leaves. Then He said to it, "May you never bear fruit again!" And immediately the fig tree withered up. The disciples were amazed when they saw this and asked, "How did the fig tree wither so quickly?"
Then Jesus told them: "I assure you, if you have faith and don't doubt, you can do things like this and much more. You can even say to this mountain, ‘May God lift you up and throw you into the sea,‘ and it will happen. If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer"
(Matthew 21:18-22).
The miracle of a bountiful catch of fish:
"When He had finished speaking, He said to Simon,
"Now go out where it is deeper and let down your nets, and you will catch many fish."
"Master," Simon replied, "we worked hard all last night and didn't catch a thing. But if you say so, we'll try again." And this time their nets were so full they began to tear! A shout for help brought their partners in the other boat, and soon both boats were filled with fish and on the verge of sinking. When Simon Peter realized what had happened, he fell to his knees before Jesus and said, "Oh, Lord, please leave me- I'm too much of a sinner to be around You." For he was awestruck by the size of their catch, as were the others with him. His partners, James and John, the sons of Zebedee, were also amazed.
Jesus replied to Simon: "Don't be afraid! From now on you'll be fishing for people!"
And as soon as they landed, they left everything and followed Jesus"
(Luke 5:4-11).
The miracle of calming the Sea Of Galilee:
"Then Jesus got into the boat and started across the lake with His disciples. Suddenly, a terrible storm came up, with waves breaking into the boat. But Jesus was sleeping. The disciples went to Him and woke Him up, shouting, "Lord, save us! We're going to drown!"
And Jesus answered: "Why are you afraid? You have so little faith!"
Then He stood up and rebuked the wind and waves, and suddenly all was calm. The disciples just sat there in awe. "Who is this?" they asked themselves. "Even the wind and waves obey Him!"
(Matthew 8:23-27).
The miracle of the feeding of the 5,000:
"As soon as Jesus heard the news, He went off by Himself in a boat to a remote area to be alone. But the crowds heard where He was headed and followed by land from many villages. A vast crowd was there as He stepped from the boat, and He had compassion on them and healed their sick. That evening the disciples came to Him and said, "This is a desolate place, and it is getting late. Send the crowds away so they can go to the villages and buy food for themselves."
But Jesus replied: "That isn't necessary- you feed them."
"Impossible!" they exclaimed. "We have only five loaves of bread and two fish!"
"Bring them here, He said."
Then He told the people to sit down on the grass. And He took the five loaves and two fish, looked up toward heaven, and asked God's blessing on the food. Breaking the loaves into pieces, He gave some of the bread and fish to each disciple, and the disciples gave them to the people. They all ate as much as they wanted, and they picked up twelve baskets of leftovers. About five thousand men had eaten from those five loaves, in addition to all the women and children!"
(Matthew 14:13-21).
The miracle of Jesus walking on the water:
"Immediately after this, Jesus made His disciples get back into the boat and cross to the other side of the lake while He sent the people home. Afterward He went up into the hills by Himself to pray. Night fell while He was there alone. Meanwhile, the disciples were in trouble far away from land, for a strong wind had risen, and they were fighting heavy waves. About three o'clock in the morning Jesus came to them, walking on the water. When the disciples saw Him, they screamed in terror, thinking He was a ghost. But Jesus spoke to them at once:
"It's all right," He said. "I am here! Don't be afraid."
Then Peter called to Him, "Lord, if it's really You, tell me to come to You by walking on water."
"All right, come," Jesus said.
So Peter went over the side of the boat and walked on the water toward Jesus. But when he looked around at the high waves, he was terrified and began to sink. "Save me, Lord!" he shouted. Instantly Jesus reached out His hand and grabbed him.
"You don't have much faith," Jesus said. "Why did you doubt Me?"
And when they climbed back into the boat, the wind stopped. Then the disciples worshiped Him. "You really are the Son of God!" they exclaimed"
(Matthew 14:22-33).
The miracle of the feeding of the 4,000:
"Then Jesus called His disciples to Him and said,
"I feel sorry for these people. They have been here with Me for three days, and they have nothing left to eat. I don't want to send them away hungry, or they will faint along the road."
The disciples replied, "And where would we get enough food out here in the wilderness for all of them to eat?"
Jesus asked: "How many loaves of bread do you have?"
They replied, "Seven, and a few small fish." So Jesus told all the people to sit down on the ground. Then He took the seven loaves and the fish, thanked God for them, broke them into pieces, and gave them to the disciples, who distributed the food to the crowd. They all ate until they were full, and when the scraps were picked up, there were seven large baskets of food left over! There were four thousand men who were fed that day, in addition to all the women and children. Then Jesus sent the people home, and He got into a boat and crossed over to the region of Magadan"
(Matthew 15:32-39).
The miracle of the temple tax money:
"On their arrival in Capernaum, the tax collectors for the Temple tax came to Peter and asked him, "Doesn't your teacher pay the Temple tax?" "Of course He does," Peter replied. Then he went into the house to talk to Jesus about it. But before he had a chance to speak
Jesus asked him: "What do you think, Peter? Do kings tax their own people or the foreigners they have conquered?"
"They tax the foreigners," Peter replied.
"Well, then," Jesus said, "the citizens are free! However, we don't want to offend them, so go down to the lake and throw in a line. Open the mouth of the first fish you catch, and you will find a coin. Take the coin and pay the tax for both of us"
(Matthew 17:24-27).

We plant the seeds
God gives the harvest

A Few More of Christ's Miracles:

Jesus changes water to wine- this was His first recorded miracle:

"Six stone waterpots were standing there; they were used for Jewish ceremonial purposes and held twenty to thirty gallons each.
Jesus told the servants: "Fill the jars with water." When the jars had been filled to the brim, He said, "Dip some out and take it to the master of ceremonies."
So they followed His instructions. When the master of ceremonies tasted the water that was now wine, not knowing where it had come from (though, of course, the servants knew), he called the bridegroom over. "Usually a host serves the best wine first," he said. "Then, when everyone is full and doesn't care, he brings out the less expensive wines. But you have kept the best until now!" This miraculous sign at Cana in Galilee was Jesus' first display of His glory. And His disciples believed in Him"
(John 2:6-11).
Jesus heals a paralyzed man at the pool of Bethesda in Jerusalem. The man had been unable to walk for 38 years.
"One of the men lying there had been sick for thirty-eight years. When Jesus saw him and knew how long he had been ill, He asked him,
"Would you like to get well?"
"I can't, sir," the sick man said, "for I have no one to help me into the pool when the water is stirred up. While I am trying to get there, someone else always gets in ahead of me."
Jesus told him: "Stand up, pick up your sleeping mat, and walk!"
Instantly, the man was healed! He rolled up the mat and began walking!..."
(John 5:5-9).
Jesus heals a man with leprosy:
"Suddenly, a man with leprosy approached Jesus. He knelt before Him, worshiping. "Lord," the man said, "if You want to, You can make Me well again." Jesus touched him.
"I want to," He said. "Be healed!"
And instantly the leprosy disappeared
(Matthew 8:2-4).
Jesus heals a man who was paralyzed:
"Some people brought to Him a paralyzed man on a mat. Seeing their faith, Jesus said to the paralyzed man:
"Take heart, son! Your sins are forgiven."
"Blasphemy! This man talks like He is God!" some of the teachers of religious law said among themselves. Jesus knew what they were thinking, so He asked them:
"Why are you thinking such evil thoughts? Is it easier to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven‘ or ‘Get up and walk‘? I will prove that I, the Son of Man, have the authority on earth to forgive sins."
Then Jesus turned to the paralyzed man and said:
"Stand up, take your mat, and go on home, because you are healed!"
And the man jumped up and went home
! Fear swept through the crowd as they saw this happen right before their eyes. They praised God for sending a Man with such great authority"
(Matthew 9:2-8).
Jesus resurrected from the dead-
This is the greatest miracle of all. Jesus had foretold His death and resurrection on numerous occasions:
"Suddenly there was a great earthquake, because an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and rolled aside the stone and sat on it. His face shone like lightning, and his clothing was as white as snow. The guards shook with fear when they saw him, and they fell into a dead faint. Then the angel spoke to the women. "Don't be afraid!" he said. "I know you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He isn't here! He has been raised from the dead, just as He said would happen. Come, see where His body was lying. And now, go quickly and tell His disciples He has been raised from the dead, and He is going ahead of you to Galilee. You will see Him there. Remember, I have told you." The women ran quickly from the tomb. They were very frightened but also filled with great joy, and they rushed to find the disciples to give them the angel's message. And as they went, Jesus met them.
He said. And they ran to Him, held His feet, and worshiped Him. Then Jesus said to them,
"Don't be afraid! Go tell my brothers to leave for Galilee, and they will see Me there."
As the women were on their way into the city, some of the men who had been guarding the tomb went to the leading priests and told them what had happened. A meeting of all the religious leaders was called, and they decided to bribe the soldiers. They told the soldiers, "You must say, `Jesus' disciples came during the night while we were sleeping, and they stole his body.' If the governor hears about it, we'll stand up for you and everything will be all right." So the guards accepted the bribe and said what they were told to say. Their story spread widely among the Jews, and they still tell it today. Then the eleven disciples left for Galilee, going to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. When they saw him, they worshiped him- but some of them still doubted! Jesus came and told his disciples,
"I have been given complete authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age"
(Matthew 28:2-20).
The catch of fish that nearly tore their fishing nets:
This miracle happened after His resurrection on the shore line of the Sea of Galilee:
"Later Jesus appeared again to the disciples beside the Sea of Galilee. This is how it happened. Several of the disciples were there- Simon Peter, Thomas (nicknamed the Twin), Nathanael from Cana in Galilee, the sons of Zebedee, and two other disciples. Simon Peter said, "I'm going fishing." "We'll come, too," they all said. So they went out in the boat, but they caught nothing all night. At dawn the disciples saw Jesus standing on the beach, but they couldn't see who He was.
He called out: "Friends, have you caught any fish?"
"No," they replied. Then He said:
"Throw out your net on the right-hand side of the boat, and you'll get plenty of fish!"
So they did, and they couldn't draw in the net because there were so many fish in it"
(John 21:1-6).
"And there are also many other things that Jesus did, which if they were written one by one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that would be written. Amen"
(John 21:25).
