Jesus Appears at the Sea of Galilee

1 After these things Jesus 1amanifested Himself bagain to the disciples at the cSea of Tiberias, and He manifested Himself in this way.

2 Simon Peter, and aThomas called 1Didymus, and bNathanael of cCana in Galilee, and dthe sons of Zebedee, and two others of His disciples were together.

3 Simon Peter * said to them, “I am going fishing.” They * said to him, “We will also come with you.” They went out and got into the boat; and athat night they caught nothing.

4 But when the day was now breaking, Jesus stood on the beach; yet the disciples did not aknow that it was Jesus.

5 So Jesus * said to them, “Children, ayou do not have 1any fish, do you?” They answered Him, “No.”

6 And He said to them, aCast the net on the right-hand side of the boat and you will find a catch.” So they cast, and then they were not able to haul it in because of the great number of fish.

7 aTherefore that disciple whom Jesus loved * said to Peter, “It is the Lord.” So when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he put his outer garment on (for he was stripped for work), and threw himself into the sea.

8 But the other disciples came in the little boat, for they were not far from the land, but about 1one hundred yards away, dragging the net full of fish.

9 So when they got out on the land, they * saw a charcoal afire already laid and bfish placed on it, and bread.

10 Jesus * said to them, “Bring some of the afish which you have now caught.”

11 Simon Peter went up and drew the net to land, full of large fish, a hundred and fifty-three; and although there were so many, the net was not torn.

Jesus Provides

12 Jesus * said to them, “Come and have abreakfast.” None of the disciples ventured to question Him, “Who are You?” knowing that it was the Lord.

13 Jesus * came and * took athe bread and * gave it to them, and the bfish likewise.

14 This is now the athird time that Jesus 1was manifested to the disciples, after He was raised from the dead.

A star (*) is used to mark verbs that are historical presents in the Greek which have been translated with an English past tense in order to conform to modern usage. The translators recognized that in some contexts the present tense seems more unexpected and unjustified to the English reader than a past tense would have been. But Greek authors frequently used the present tense for the sake of heightened vividness, thereby transporting their readers in imagination to the actual scene at the time of occurence. However, the translators felt that it would be wise to change these historical presents to English past tenses.
