RF JOH 21:1 The Marvelous Lake of Fish.
After this, Jesus again manifested Himself to His disciples at the Lake of Tiberias. And He appeared in this way:
RF JOH 21:2 there were together, Simon Peter, Thomas, called the Twin, Nathaniel of Cana, in Galilee, the Zebedee's, as well as two more of his disciples.
RF JOH 21:3 Simon Peter remarked to them "I am going to fish."
"We are also coming with you," was their reply. They went off, and entered into a boat; but during that night they caught nothing.
RF JOH 21:4 When, however, the day began to dawn, Jesus stood upon the beach. The disciples, nevertheless, failed to recognize that it was Jesus.
RF JOH 21:5 Jesus, therefore, called to them "Lads, have you caught anything to eat?"
"No," was their answer.
RF JOH 21:6 He accordingly said to them: "Throw your net upon the right side of the boat, and you will find some. "They, therefore, cast, and then found they were no longer able to haul it in, owing to the quantity of fish.
RF JOH 21:7 That disciple whom Jesus loved then observed to Peter: "It is the Lord." So when Simon Peter learned that it was the Lord, he slipped on his jacket (for he was stripped), and flung himself into the water.
RF JOH 21:8 The other disciples, however, being only about a hundred yards distant from the shore, landed in the small boat, dragging the net with the fish.
RF JOH 21:9 When they had got out upon the shore, they observed a charcoal fire, with fish and a cake placed upon it.
RF JOH 21:10 "Pick from the fish which you have now caught," said Jesus to them.
RF JOH 21:11 Simon Peter accordingly went and drew the net upon the beach, full of large fish, to the number of one hundred and fifty-three; and although there were so many, the net was not broken.
RF JOH 21:12 "Come, have your breakfast," said Jesus to them. And none of the disciples ventured to ask Him, "Who are You?" perceiving, as they did, that it was the Lord.
RF JOH 21:13 Jesus drew near, took the cake, and distributed among them, as well as of the fish.
RF JOH 21:14 This was now the third occasion on which Jesus was manifested to the disciples after He had risen from the dead.
RF JOH 21:15 Peter's Affection for Jesus.
Now when they had breakfasted, Jesus said to Simon Peter: "Simon of John, are you My friend more than these?"
"Yes, Master," he said, in reply; "You know that I love You."
"Feed My lambs," said He.
RF JOH 21:16 Again a second time He asked him: "Simon, son of John, are you My friend?"
"Yes, Master," was his answer; "You know that I love you."
"Shepherd My sheep."
RF JOH 21:17 For the third time He asked him: "Simon, son of John, do you love me?"
Peter was grieved because He asked him the third time, "Do you love me?" and, in reply, he said to Him, "Lord, You know all; You know I love you."
Jesus replied to him: "Feed My little sheep.
RF JOH 21:18 Most assuredly I tell you, that when you were younger, you dressed yourself, and went wherever you liked; but when you get older, you will hold out your hands, when another will dress you, and carry you where you do not desire."
RF JOH 21:19 [He said this, intimating the nature of the death by which he would pay honour to God.] And, having spoken this, He said to him: "Follow Me."
RF JOH 21:20 Peter, turning round, saw the disciple whom Jesus loved following—the one who lay near His breast at the supper, and asked: "Who, Master, is the one who is betraying You?"
RF JOH 21:21 Peter, therefore, seeing him, said to Jesus: "But what about this one, Lord?"
RF JOH 21:22 Jesus replied to him: "If I decide for him to remain until I come, what is that to you? You must follow Me."
RF JOH 21:23 [This remark, therefore, led to a general impression among the brothers that that particular disciple would not die. Jesus, however, did not say that he would not die, but, "If I decide for him to remain until I come, what is that to you?"
RF JOH 21:24 Postscript.
It is this disciple who attests these events, and wrote this narrative; and we know that his evidence is truth.
RF JOH 21:25 And very many more were the acts: of Jesus, which, were they to be severally related, I imagine the world itself could not contain the volumes that would be written.]
