1 After these things Jesus shewed Himself again to the disciples near the sea of Tiberias; and He shewed Himself thus.
2 Simon Peter and Thomas called Didymus, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two others of his disciples were together:
3 and Simon Peter saith unto them, I will go a fishing, and they say to him, We will also go with thee. So they went out, and forthwith entered into a ship: and that night they caught nothing.
4 But when it was morning, Jesus stood on the shore: though the disciples knew not that it was Jesus.
6 They answered Him, No. And He said unto them, Cast the net on the right side of the ship, and ye will find some. So they cast it, and they were not able to draw it up by reason of the multitude of fishes. 7 Whereupon that disciple whom Jesus loved, saith to Peter, "It is the Lord." Then Simon Peter perceiving that it was the Lord, girded on his coat, (for he was stript,) and threw himself into the sea; 8 and the other disciples came in the boat dragging the net of fishes; for they were not far from the land, but about two hundred cubits. 9 And as soon as they were come to land, they saw a fire laid, and fish upon it, and bread.
10 And Jesus saith unto them, Bring some of the fish, which ye have now caught. 11 Then Simon Peter went aboard, and drew the net to land, full of large fishes, an hundred fifty-three: and though there were so many, the net was not broken.
12 Jesus saith unto them, Come, and dine. And none of the disciples presumed to ask Him, Who art thou? knowing that it was the Lord. 13 Jesus therefore cometh and taketh bread, and giveth it to them, and fish likewise.
14 This was the third time that Jesus shewed Himself to a number of his disciples, after He was risen from the dead.
15 Now when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon son of Jonas, dost thou love me more than these? He saith unto Him, Yes, Lord, Thou knowest that I love Thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs.
16 He saith to him again the second time, Simon son of Jonas, dost thou love me? He saith unto Him, Yes, Lord, Thou knowest that I love Thee.
17 He saith unto him, Feed my sheep. He saith unto him the third time, Simon son of Jonas, dost thou love me? Peter was grieved, that He said to him the third time, Dost thou love me? And he said unto Him, Lord, Thou knowest all things, Thou knowest that I love Thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep. 18 Verily, verily I say unto thee, When thou wast younger, thou girdedst thyself, and walkedst about where thou wouldest: but when thou art old, thou shalt stretch out thine hands, and another shall gird thee, and carry thee where thou wouldest not. 19 This He said, signifying by what death he should glorify God. And when He had said this, He saith unto him, Follow me.
20 And Peter turning about seeth the disciple whom Jesus loved, (and who leaned on his breast at supper, and said, Lord, who is he that will betray Thee?) following them; 21 and upon seeing him, Peter saith to Jesus, Lord, what shall this man do?
22 Jesus saith unto him, If I will that he stay till I come, what is it to thee? Follow thou me.
23 This rumor therefore was spread among the brethren, that that disciple should not die: though Jesus did not say that he should not die, but--- if I will that he stay till I come, what is that to thee?
24 This is the disciple that testifieth of these things, and that writeth them: and we know that his testimony is true.
