St. Peter Casting Himself into the Water to Meet Jesus – Tissot


This artwork by James Tissot depicts the moment of Christ's third manifestation after His Resurrection, when Simon Peter leaps into the Sea of Tiberius to meet the Savior.

The scene of this artwork is told of in  John 21:7"That disciple therefore whom Jesus loved, said to Peter: 'It is the Lord'. Simon Peter, when he heard that it was the Lord, girt his coat about him, (for he was naked), and cast himself into the sea."
