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.
