The resurrected savior appears to his disciples at the Sea of Galilee. Artist: Julius Schnorr von Carolsfeld. Engraver: Joch, inscribed lower left. Source: Die Bibel in Bildern, Plate 224. Click on image to enlarge it.

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 fisher's coat unto him, (for he was naked,) and did cast himself into the sea. [John 21: 7; King James Bible]

Although the text of the Gospel of Mark describes the messenger only as a “young man,” the artist depicts him as an angel.
