John 21

After these things, Jesus again manifested Himself to His disciples, at the Sea of Tiberias; and He thus manifested Himself. Simon Peter, and Thomas called Didymus, and Nathanael the one from Cana of Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two others of His disciples, were together. Simon Peter says to them, I go to fish. They say to Him, We also go along with you. They went out, and entered into a ship, and that night caught nothing. And it being now morning, Jesus stood on the shore: the disciples did not know that He is Jesus. Then Jesus says to them; Little children, whether have you any meat? They respond to Him, No. He says to them, Cast the net to the right side of the ship, and you will find: then they cast it, and were not able to draw it on account of the multitude of the fishes. Then that disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, He is the Lord. Then Simon Peter hearing that He is the Lord, girded on his fishing-cloak (for he was unclothed), and cast Himself into the sea: and the other disciples came in the ship (for they were not far from the land, but about two hundred cubits), drawing the net of the fishes. Then when they came to the land, they see fire lying, and fish and bread lying on it. 10 Jesus said to them, Take from the fishes which you now caught. 11 And Simon Peter came up, and drew the net to the land, full of a hundred and fifty-three large fishes: and there being so many yet the net was not broken. 12 Jesus says to them, Come, take breakfast. But no one of the disciples dared to ask Him, Who art thou? knowing that He is the Lord. 13 Jesus comes, and takes bread, and gives it to them, and fish likewise. 14 And this third time Jesus was already manifested to His disciples, having risen from the dead. 15 Then when they took breakfast, Jesus says to Simon Peter; Simon, the son of Jonah, dost thou love me with divine love more than these? He says to Him, Yes, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee as a friend. He says to him; Feed my lambs. 16 Again He says to him a second time, Simon, the son of Jonah, do you love me with divine love? He says to Him; Thou knowest that I love thee as a friend. He says to him; Shepherdize my sheeplings. 17 He says to him a third time; Simon, the son of Jonah, do you love me as a friend? Peter was grieved, because He said to him the third time, Do you love me as a friend? And he says to Him, Lord, thou knowest all things; and thou dost understand that I love thee as a friend. He says to Him, Feed my sheeplings. 18 Truly, truly, I say unto you, When you were young, you girded yourself, and walked about where you wished: but when you get old, you will reach forth your hands, and another will lead you, where you do not wish. 19 And He spoke this, signifying by what death he shall glorify God. And having spoken this, He says to him, Follow me. 20 And Peter turning sees the disciple, whom Jesus loved, following; who also leaned upon His breast in the supper, and said; Lord, who is the one having betrayed thee? 21 Then Peter seeing him says to Jesus; Lord, but what shall he do? 22 And Jesus says to him, If I wish him to tarry until I come, what is that to thee? 23 Then that word went out to the brethren that that disciple does not die. And Jesus did not say to him, that he does not die; but, If I wish him to tarry until I come. 24 This is the disciple witnessing concerning these things, and having written the same: and we know that his testimony is true.
