INTRODUCTION. This story occurs after Jesus' resurrection. Jesus rose from the grave early on the first day of the week and appeared first to Mary Magdalene at his tomb (Mark 16:9; John 20:1-18). That same day He appeared to some women
(Matt. 28:1-10), to Peter (Luke 24:34), to two disciples on the road to Emmaus (Luke 24:13-35), and in the evening to the disciples gathered in a room in Jerusalem, Thomas being absent (John 20:19-25). One week later, also the first day of the week, He again appeared to the disciples; this time Thomas was present (John 20:26-29). Sometime after this, the disciples returned to Galilee. It was there by the Sea of Galilee that Jesus made his seventh appearance after his resurrection, showing (manifesting) himself to seven of his disciples.
