JOHN 21:1-19

After this Jesus revealed himself again to the disciples by the Sea of Tiberias, and he

revealed himself in this way. 2 Simon Peter, Thomas (called the Twin), Nathanael of

Cana in Galilee, the sons of Zebedee, and two others of his disciples were together. 3

Simon Peter said to them, “I am going fishing.” They said to him, “We will go with you.”

They went out and got into the boat, but that night they caught nothing. 4 Just as day

was breaking, Jesus stood on the shore; yet the disciples did not know that it was

Jesus. 5 Jesus said to them, “Children, do you have any fish?” They answered him, “No.”

6 He said to them, “Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and you will find some.”

So they cast it, and now they were not able to haul it in, because of the quantity of sh. 7

That disciple whom Jesus loved therefore said to Peter, “It is the Lord!” When Simon

Peter heard that it was the Lord, he put on his outer garment, for he was stripped for

work, and threw himself into the sea.8 The other disciples came in the boat, dragging

the net full of sh, for they were not far from the land, but about a hundred yards off. 9

When they got out on land, they saw a charcoal re in place, with sh laid out on it, and

bread. 10 Jesus said to them, “Bring some of the sh that you have just caught.” 11 So

Simon Peter went aboard and hauled the net ashore, full of large sh, 153 of them. And

although there were so many, the net was not torn. 12 Jesus said to them, “Come and

have breakfast.” Now none of the disciples dared ask him, “Who are you?” They knew it

was the Lord. 13 Jesus came and took the bread and gave it to them, and so with the

sh. 14 This was now the third time that Jesus was revealed to the disciples after he was

raised from the dead.15 When they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter,

“Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you

know that I love you.” He said to him, “Feed my lambs.” 16 He said to him a second

time, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I

love you.” He said to him, “Tend my sheep.” 17 He said to him the third time, “Simon,

son of John, do you love me?” Peter was grieved because he said to him the third time,

“Do you love me?” and he said to him, “Lord, you know everything; you know that I love

you.” Jesus said to him, “Feed my sheep. 18 Truly, truly, I say to you, when you were

young, you used to dress yourself and walk wherever you wanted, but when you are

old, you will stretch out your hands, and another will dress you and carry you where you

do not want to go.” 19 (This he said to show by what kind of death he was to glorify

God.) And after saying this he said to him, “Follow me.”
