John 21:1-14 (10th Matins Resurrection Gospel)
At that time, after He was risen from the dead, Jesus showed Himself again to the isciples at the sea of Tiberias; and on this wise showed He Himself. There were together Simon Peter, and Thomas called the Twin, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two other of His disciples. Simon Peter saith unto them, I go a fishing. They say unto him, We also go with thee. They went forth, and entered into a ship immediately; and that night they caught nothing. But when the morning was now come, Jesus stood on the shore: but the disciples knew not that it was Jesus. Then Jesus saith unto them, Children, have ye aught to eat? They answered Him, No. And He said unto them, Cast the net on the right side of the ship, and ye shall find. They cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes. Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved saith unto Peter, It is the Lord. Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he girt his coat about him, (for he was naked,) and did cast himself into the sea. And the other disciples came in the little ship; (for they were not far off from the land, but as it were two hundred cubits,) and were dragging the net with fishes. As soon then as they were come out upon the land, they saw a fire of coals there, and a fish laid thereon, and bread. Jesus saith unto them, Bring of the fish which ye have now caught. Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to land full of great fishes, a hundred and fifty and three: and for all there were so many, yet was not the net broken. Jesus saith unto them, Come and dine. And none of the disciples durst ask Him, Who art Thou? knowing that it was the Lord. Jesus then cometh, and taketh the bread, and giveth them, and the fish likewise. This is now the third time that Jesus showed Himself to His disciples, after He was risen from the dead.
