Jesus Appears at the Sea of Galilee

1 After these things Jesus manifested R1302 F223 Himself again R1303 to the disciples at the Sea R1304 of Tiberias, and He manifested Himself in this way. 2 Simon Peter, and Thomas R1305 called Didymus, F224 and Nathanael R1306 of Cana R1307 in Galilee, and the R1308 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 also come with you." They went out and got into the boat; and that R1309 night they caught nothing.

4 But when the day was now breaking, Jesus stood on the beach; yet the disciples did not know R1310 that it was Jesus. 5 So Jesus said to them, "Children, you R1311 do not have any F225 fish, do you?" They answered Him, "No." 6 And He said to them, "Cast R1312 the net on the right-hand side of the boat and you will find a catch." So they cast, and then they were not able to haul it in because of the great number of fish. 7 Therefore R1313 that disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, "It is the Lord." So when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he put his outer garment on (for he was stripped for work), and threw himself into the sea. 8 But the other disciples came in the little boat, for they were not far from the land, but about one F226 hundred yards away, dragging the net full of fish.

9 So when they got out on the land, they saw a charcoal fire R1314 already laid and fish R1315 placed on it, and bread. 10 Jesus said to them, "Bring some of the fish R1316 which you have now caught." 11 Simon Peter went up and drew the net to land, full of large fish, a hundred and fifty-three; and although there were so many, the net was not torn.

Jesus Provides

12 Jesus said to them, "Come and have breakfast." R1317 None of the disciples ventured to question Him, "Who are You?" knowing that it was the Lord. 13 Jesus came and took the R1318 bread and gave it to them, and the fish R1319 likewise. 14 This is now the third R1320 time that Jesus was F227 manifested to the disciples, after He was raised from the dead.

The Love Motivation

15 So when they had finished R1321 breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, "Simon, son of John, do you love R1322 F228 Me more than these?" He said to Him, "Yes, Lord; You know that I love F229 You." He said to him, "Tend My R1323 lambs." 16 He said to him again a second time, "Simon, son of John, do you love F230 Me?" He said to Him, "Yes, Lord; You know that I love F231 You." He said to him, "Shepherd R1324 My sheep." 17 He said to him the third time, "Simon, son of John, do you love F232 Me?" Peter was grieved because He said to him the R1325 third time, "Do you love F232 Me?" And he said to Him, "Lord, You R1326 know all things; You know that I love F232 You." Jesus said to him, "Tend R1327 My sheep.

Our Times Are in His Hand

18 "Truly, truly, I say to you, when you were younger, you used to gird yourself and walk wherever you wished; but when you grow old, you will stretch out your hands and someone else will gird you, and bring you where you do not wish to go." 19 Now this He said, signifying R1328 by what R1329 kind of death he would glorify God. And when He had spoken this, He said to him, "Follow R1330 Me!"

20 Peter, turning around, saw the disciple R1331 whom Jesus loved following them; the one who also had leaned R1332 back on His bosom at the supper and said, "Lord, who is the one who betrays You?" 21 So Peter seeing him said to Jesus, "Lord, and what about this man?" 22 Jesus said to him, "If I want him to remain until R1333 I come, what is that to you? You follow R1334 Me!" 23 Therefore this saying went out among the R1335 brethren that that disciple would not die; yet Jesus did not say to him that he would not die, but only, "If I want him to remain until R1336 I come, what is that to you?"

24 This is the disciple who is R1337 testifying to these things and wrote these things, and we know that his testimony is true.

25 And there are also many R1338 other things which Jesus did, which if they were written in detail, I suppose that even the world itself would not contain the books that would be written.
