The woman, Tabitha lived in the port city of Joppa; she was a renowned philanthropist. She had a vital ministry helping widows and the poor. As she became ill, subsequently died and prepared for burial, the apostle Peter was summoned. He rushed to her bedside praying ... thus raising her from death.
To Tabitha belongs the worthy distinction of being the only woman in the New Testament identified as a disciple. The name 'Tabitha' is interpreted Dorcas: she was full of good works. She became sick and died: her body was washed and laid in an upper chamber awaiting burial when the disciples called for Peter.
Peter went with the disciples to Joppa. They brought him into the upper chamber: and all the widows stood by him weeping. Peter put them all forth and kneeled down, praying and turning to the body said, "Tabitha, arise." She opened her eyes: and seeing Peter, she sat up. Acts 9:36-40
