John 21:1 After these things Jesus
showed himself again to the disciples by
the Sea of Tiberias; and he showed himself in this way. 2 Gathered there together were Simon Peter, Thomas called
the Twin, Nathanael of Cana in Galilee,
the sons of Zebedee, and two others of
his disciples. 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 after daybreak, Jesus stood on the beach; but the
disciples did not know that it was Jesus.
5 Jesus said to them, “Children, you
have no fish, have you?” They answered
him, “No.” 6 He said to them, “Cast
the net to 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 there were so many fish. 7 That
disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter,
“It is the Lord!” When Simon Peter
heard that it was the Lord, he put on
some clothes, for he was naked, and
jumped into the sea. 8 But the other
disciples came in the boat, dragging the
net full of fish, for they were not far from
the land, only about a hundred yards
off.9 When they had gone ashore, they
saw a charcoal fire there, with fish on it,
and bread. 10 Jesus said to them, “Bring
some of the fish that you have just
caught.” 11 So Simon Peter went
aboard and hauled the net ashore, full of
large fish, a hundred fifty-three of them;
and though there were so many, the net
was not torn. 12 Jesus said to them,
“Come and have breakfast.” Now none
of the disciples dared to ask him, “Who
are you?” because they knew it was the
Lord. 13 Jesus came and took the bread
and gave it to them, and did the same
with the fish. 14 This was now the third
time that Jesus appeared 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.” Jesus said to him, “Feed
my lambs.” 16 A second time he said to
him, “Simon son of John, do you love
me?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you
know that I love you.” Jesus said to him,
“Tend my sheep.” 17 He said to him
the third time, “Simon son of John, do
you love me?” Peter felt hurt 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 Very truly, I tell you, when you were
younger, you used to fasten your own
belt and to go wherever you wished. But
when you grow old, you will stretch out
your hands, and someone else will fasten
a belt around you and take you where
you do not wish to go.” 19 (He said this
to indicate the kind of death by which
he would glorify God.) After this, he said
to him, “Follow me.”
