1 After these things he showed himself again to the disciples at the lake of Tiberias; and he showed himself thus.
2 Simon Peter, and Thomas called the Twin, and Nathaniel who was from Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two others of his disciples were together.
3 Simon Peter said to them, I am going a fishing. They said to him, We will also go with you. They went out and entered into the ship; and on that night caught nothing,
4 but when it was now morning Jesus stood on the shore; but the disciples knew not that it was Jesus.
5 Then Jesus said to them, Children, have you any thing to eat? They answered him, No.
6 And he said to them, Cast the net on the right side of the ship and you shall find. Then they cast it, and they were not able to draw it from the number of fishes. 7 Then that disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, It is the Lord. Then Simon Peter, hearing that it was the Lord, girded on his coat, for he was naked, and cast himself into the lake. 8 But the other disciples came with the boat, drawing the net of fishes, for they were not far from the land, but about two hundred cubits distant. 9 Then when they came to land they saw coals placed, and a fish laid upon [them], and bread.
10 Jesus said to them, Bring of the fish that you have now caught. 11 Simon Peter went and drew the net to the land, full of great fishes a hundred and fifty-three; and though there were so many the net was not broken.
12 Jesus said to them, Come and breakfast. No one of the disciples dared to ask him, Who are you? for they knew that he was the Lord. 13 Jesus came and took the bread and gave them, and the fish likewise.
14 This was now the third time that Jesus appeared to his disciples after he had arisen from the dead.
15 When therefore they had breakfasted, 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 am a friend to you. He said to him, Feed my lambs.
16 Again he said to him a second time; Simon, son of John, do you love me? He said to him, Yes, Lord, you know that I am a friend to you. He said to him, Feed my sheep.
17 He said to him a third time; Simon, son of John, are you a friend to me? Peter was grieved that he said to him the third time, Are you a friend to me? and he said to him, Lord you know all things; you know that I am a friend to you. Jesus said to him, Feed my sheep. 18 I tell you most truly, that when you were young you girded yourself and walked where you would; but when you become old, you shall stretch out your hands and another shall bind you and carry you where you would not; 19 but he said this signifying by what death he should glorify God; and having said this, he said to him, Follow me.
20 And Peter turning around saw the disciple whom Jesus loved following, who also reclined at the supper on his breast and said, Lord, who is it that is to betray you? 21 Peter seeing him said to Jesus, Lord, and what shall this man [do]?
22 Jesus said to him, If I wish him to continue till I come, what is that to you? follow me.
23 The report then went out among the brothers that this disciple would not die; but Jesus said not to him, He shall not die; but, If I wish him to continue till I come, what is that to you?
24 This is the disciple who testifies of these things and has written them; and we know that his testimony is true.
25 And there are many other things which Jesus did, which, if they should be written particularly, I do not suppose the world itself could contain the books written.
