Clarification of the purported miracle[edit]

Not wishing to appear ignorant but the page as it currently stands does not show a purported miracle. I presume it is suggested that Peter did catch a fish, and it did have 4 drachma coin in it's mouth. So stating it the article, and citing the relevant reference, would seem to improve the article.

But the New Testament text does not say that Peter actually did anything, and it is just assumed by Biblical scholars that he did. And the books on miracles list this as one, so everyone seems to presumes that the text implies what you presumed. Any statement that any miracle took place here or elsewhere by Jesus here or by Buddha elsewhere etc. will also invite a NPOV debate, so it is best left this way I think.
