New painting added: Draft of Fishes

Updated: May 21

The Miraculous Draft of Fishes, or Miraculous Catch of Fish, refers to two miracles performed by Jesus. The miracles take place years apart from each other, but in both stories apostles are fishing unsuccessfully in the Sea of Galilee when Jesus tells them to try one more cast of the net. When they do so they are rewarded with a catch of great weight.

The first Miraculous Draft takes place early in Jesus' ministry and results in Peter, James and John joining him as disciples.

The second Miraculous Draft, also called the "Miraculous Catch of 153 Fish," is reported in the last chapter of John and takes place after the Resurrection.
