4. Moving and Living with the Believers

1 1After these things Jesus 2amanifested Himself again to the disciples at the Sea of Tiberias. And He manifested Himself in this way:

2 Simon Peter and aThomas, called 1Didymus, and bNathanael from Cana of Galilee and the csons of Zebedee and two others of His disciples were there together.

3 Simon Peter said to them, I am 1going afishing. They said to him, We also are coming with you. They went forth and bgot into the boat, and that night they caught 2nothing.

4 Now as soon as the morning broke, Jesus stood on the shore; however the disciples did anot know that it was Jesus.

5 Then Jesus said to them, aLittle children, you do not have any 1bfish to eat, do you? They answered Him, 2No.

6 And He said to them, Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and you will find some. They cast therefore, and they were no longer able to haul it in because of the 1abundance of fish.

7 Then that adisciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, It is the Lord! Therefore when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he put his outer garment around himself, for he 1was naked; and he 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 1two hundred cubits away, dragging the net of fish.

9 Then when they got out onto the land, they saw a fire of coals laid there, and 1afish lying on it and bbread.

10 Jesus said to them, Bring some of the fish that you have just now caught.

11 Simon Peter therefore went up and hauled the net to the land full of large fish, a hundred and fifty-three; and though there were so many, the net was not torn.

12 Jesus said to them, 1Come and have breakfast. But none of the disciples dared to inquire of Him, Who are you? knowing that it was the Lord.

13 Jesus came and atook the 1bread and gave it to them, and the 1fish likewise.

14 This was now the athird time that Jesus was manifested to the disciples after He had been braised from the dead.

5. Working and Walking with the Believers

15 Then when they had eaten breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, 1Simon, son of John, do you 2love Me amore than these? He said to Him, Yes, Lord, You know that I 3love You. He said to him, 4bFeed My 5lambs.

16 He said to him again 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, 1aShepherd My 2sheep.

17 He said to him the 1third time, Simon, son of John, do you love Me? Peter was grieved that He said to him the third time, Do you love Me? And he said to Him, Lord, You 2aknow ball things; You 2know that I love You. Jesus said to him, cFeed My sheep.

18 Truly, truly, I say to you, When you were younger, you girded yourself and 1awalked where you wished; but when you grow old, you will stretch out your hands, and another will gird you and carry you where you do not wish to go.

19 Now this He said, asignifying by what 1bkind of death he would glorify God. And when He had said this, He said to him, cFollow Me.

20 Peter, turning around, saw the adisciple whom Jesus loved following, who also breclined on His breast at the supper, and said, Lord, who is the one betraying You?

21 Peter therefore, seeing him, said to Jesus, Lord, and what about this man?

22 Jesus said to him, If I want him to aremain until I 1bcome, what is that to you? You 1cfollow Me.

23 This word therefore went out among the brothers, that that disciple would not die, yet Jesus did not say to him that he would not die, but, If I want him to remain until I 1come, what is that to you?

24 This is the disciple who atestifies concerning these things, and the one who has written these things; and we know that his testimony is true.

25 And there are also 1amany other things which Jesus did, which, if they were written one by one, I suppose that not even the world itself could contain the books written.
