Follow Me

John 21: 1

Jesus manifested Himself again to the disciples, at the Sea of Tiberias.

John 21: 5-6

Jesus said to them: “Children, you do not have anything to eat do you?” They answered “No!”

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

So they cast it, but they were not able to haul it in because of the large number of fish.

John  21: 9

When they came ashore they saw there a charcoal fire with fish lying on it and bread.

John 21: 12-14

Jesus said to them: “Come have your breakfast.”

Jesus came and took the bread and gave it to them, and the same with the fish.

This was now the third time that Jesus appeared to the disciples after being raised up from the dead.

John 21: 15-18

After they had eaten, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you love Me more than these others do?”

“Yes, LORD,” he answered, “you know that I love you.”

Jesus said to him, “Take care of my lambs.”

A second time Jesus said to him, “Simon son of John, do you love Me?” “Yes, LORD,” he answered, you know that I love you.” Jesus said to him, “Take care of my sheep.”

A third time Jesus said, “Simon son of John, do you love Me?”

Peter became sad because Jesus asked him the third time, “Do you love Me?” and so he said to Him, “LORD, you know everything; you know that I love you!”

Jesus said to him, “Take care of my sheep. I am telling you the truth: when you were young, you used to get ready and go anywhere you wanted to; but when you are old, you will stretch out your hands and someone else will tie you up and take you where you don’t want to go.”

Then Jesus said to him, “Follow Me.”

Praised the LORD
