Who was Tabitha? (based on Acts 9:32-42)
There was a woman in Joppa, a disciple called Tabitha, whose name in Greek was Dorcas (meaning Gazelle). Her whole life was full of good and kindly actions, she became seriously ill and died. So when they had washed her body they laid her in an upper room. Now Lydia is quite near Joppa, and when the disciples heard that peter was in Lydia, they sent two men to him and begged him, “Please come to us without delay.” Peter got up and went back with them, and when he arrived in Joppa they took him to the room upstairs. All the widows stood around him with tears in their eyes, holding out for him to see the dresses and cloaks which Tabitha used to make for them while she was with them. But Peter put them all outside the room and knelt down and prayed. The he turned to the body and said “Tabitha, get up!” she opened her eyes, and as soon as she saw Peter she sat up. He took her by the hand, helped her to her feet, and then called out to the believers and widows and presented her to them alive. This became known throughout the whole of Joppa and many believed in the Lord.
