1 After these things Jesus showed Himself again to the disciples at the sea of Tiberias; and on this way He showed Himself.
2 There were together Simon Peter, and Thomas called Didymus, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two other of His disciples.
3 Simon Peter said to them, I go a fishing. They say o him, We also go with you. They went out, and entered into a ship immediately; and that night they caught nothing.
4 But when the morning was now come, Jesus stood on the shore: but the disciples knew not that it was Jesus.
5 Then Jesus said to them, Children, have you any meat? They answered Him, No.
6 And He said to them, Cast the net on the right side of the ship, and you shall find. They cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes.
7 Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, It is the Lord. Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he put his fisher’s coat on him, (for he was naked,) and did cast himself into the sea.
8 And the other disciples came in a little ship; (for they were not far from land, but as it were one hundred yards,) dragging the net with fish.
9 As soon then as they were come to land, they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid thereon, and bread.
10 Jesus said to them, Bring of the fish which you have now caught.
11 Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to land full of great fishes, a hundred and fifty and three: and for all there were so many, yet was not the net broken.
12 Jesus said to them, Come and dine. And none of the disciples dared ask Him, Who are You? knowing that it was the Lord.
13 Jesus then comes, and takes bread, and gives them, and fish likewise.
14 This is now the third time that Jesus showed Himself to His disciples, after that He was risen from the dead.
15 So when they had dined, Jesus said to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, do you love [agapao] Me more than these? He said to Him, Yes, Lord; You know that I love [phileo] You. He said to him, Feed My lambs.
16 He said to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, do you love [agapao] me? He said to Him, Yes, Lord; You know that I love [phileo] you. He said to him, Feed My sheep.
17 He said to him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, do you love [phileo] me? Peter was grieved because he said to him the third time, Do you love [phileo] me? And he said to Him, Lord, You know all things; You know that I love [phileo] thee. Jesus said to him, Feed My sheep.
18 Verily, verily, I say to you, When you were young, you girdedst yourself, and walked where you would: but when you shall be old, you shall stretch forth your hands, and another shall gird you, and carry you where you would not.
19 This He spoke, signifying by what death he should glorify God. And when He had spoken this, He said to him, Follow Me.
20 Then Peter, turning about, sees the disciple whom Jesus loved following; who also leaned on His breast at supper, and said, Lord, who is he that betrays You?
21 Peter see Him said to Jesus, Lord, and what shall this man do?
22 Jesus said to him, If I will that he tarry until I come, what is that to you? you follow Me.
23 Then went this saying abroad among the brethren, that that disciple should not die: yet Jesus said not to him, He shall not die; but, If I will that he tarry until I come, what is that to you?
24 This is the disciple who testifies of these things, and wrote these things: and we know that his testimony is true.
25 And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen.
