Miracles: Full Nets Again

Who was the man who told Peter and his friends where to catch the fish?

 

After Jesus' crucifixion, Peter and some of the other disciples went back to their own lives as fishermen. The first time they went out they had little luck and after all night trying they had caught nothing. As day dawned and they began to make their way back to the beach, a man on the shore called to them, telling them to throw their nets on the other side of the boat.

To their surprise, they managed to catch so many fish that their nets nearly broke. Who was the man on the beach and how could He have known where they should fish? This story is an echo of the earlier miracle Jesus performed, where He called Peter to become 'fishers of men.'

You can read about this here.

This film is a modern retelling of this famous miracle.
