1 After these things Jesus manifested Himself again to the disciples at the sea of Tiberias; and He manifested Himself in this manner.
2 There were together Simon Peter, and Thomas called Didymus, and Nathaniel of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two others of His disciples.
3 Simon Peter says to them, "I am going away to fish." They say to him, We also are coming with you." They went forth, and entered into a boat; and in that night they caught nothing.
4 But, morning now coming on, Jesus stood on the beach; yet the disciples knew not that it was Jesus.
5 Jesus, therefore, saith to them, "Little children, have ye anything to eat?" They answered Him, "No."
6 And He said to there, "Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and ye shall find." They cast it, therefore; and no longer were they able to draw it, for the multitude of the fishes. 7 That disciple, therefore, whom Jesus loved, says to Peter, "It is the Lord!" Simon Peter, therefore, having heard that it was the Lord, girded his outer garment (for he was naked), and cast himself into the sea. 8 But the other disciples came in the little boat (for they were not far from the land, but about two hundred cubits distant), dragging the net full of fishes. 9 When, therefore, they went out upon the land, they see a fire of coals there, and fish lying thereon, and bread.
10 Jesus saith to them, "Bring of the fishes which ye just now caught." 11 Simon Peter, therefore, went aboard, and drew the net to the land, full of great fishes, a hundred and fifty and three; and, though there were so many, the net was not rent.
12 Jesus saith to them, "Come, take breakfast." And not one of the disciples was daring to inquire of Him," Who art Thou?" knowing that it was the Lord. 13 Jesus cometh, and taketh the bread, and giveth to them, and the fish likewise.
14 This is now the third time that Jesus was manifested to the disciples, after He was raised from the dead.
15 So, when they breakfasted, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, "Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these?" He says to Him, "Yea, Lord, Thou knowest that I fondly love Thee." He saith to him, "Feed My lambs."
16 He saith to him again a second time, "Simon, son of John, do you love Me?" He says to Him, "Yea, Lord, Thou knowest that I fondly love Thee." He saith to him, "Feed My sheep."
17 He saith to him the third time, "Simon, son of John, do you fondly love Me?" Peter was grieved, because He said to him the third time "Do you fondly love Me?" and he said to Him, "Lord, Thou knowest all things; Thou knowest that I do fondly love Thee." Jesus saith to him, "Feed My sheep. 18 Verily, verily, I say to you, when you were young, you were wont to gird yourself, and to walk wheresoever you wished; but, when you become old, you will stretch forth your hands, and another will gird you, and carry you whither you wish not." 19 Now this He spake, signifying by what manner of death he would glorify God. And, having spoken this, He saith to him, "Follow Me."
20 Peter, turning about, sees the disciple whom Jesus loved following; who also at the Supper leaned back on Jesus' breast, and said, "Lord, who is he that betrays Thee?" 21 Peter therefore, seeing him, says to Jesus, "Lord, and what will this man do?"
22 Jesus saith to him, "If I wish him to remain till I come, what is it to you? follow Me."
23 This saying, therefore, went forth among the brethren, that that disciple should not die; yet Jesus did not say to him, that he should not die, but, "If I wish him to remain till I come, what is it to you?"
24 This is the disciple who testifies concerning 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; which, indeed, were they written one by one, I suppose that not even the world itself would contain the books that would be written.
