THE WRITTEN WORD John 21:1–14

After­ward Jesus appeared again to his dis­ci­ples, by the Sea of Galilee. It hap­pened this way: Simon Peter, Thomas (also known as Didy­mus), Nathanael from Cana in Galilee, the sons of Zebedee, and two oth­er dis­ci­ples were togeth­er. “I’m going out to fish,” Simon Peter told them, and they said, “We’ll go with you.” So they went out and got into the boat, but that night they caught noth­ing. Ear­ly in the morn­ing, Jesus stood on the shore, but the dis­ci­ples did not real­ize that it was Jesus. He called out to them, “Friends, haven’t you any fish?” “No,” they answered. He said, “Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some.” When they did, they were unable to haul the net in because of the large num­ber of fish. Then the dis­ci­ple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, “It is the Lord!” As soon as Simon Peter heard him say, “It is the Lord,” he wrapped his out­er gar­ment around him (for he had tak­en it off) and jumped into the water. The oth­er dis­ci­ples fol­lowed in the boat, tow­ing the net full of fish, for they were not far from shore, about a hun­dred yards.When they land­ed, they saw a fire of burn­ing coals there with fish on it, and some bread. Jesus said to them, “Bring some of the fish you have just caught.” So Simon Peter climbed back into the boat and dragged the net ashore. It was full of large fish, 153, but even with so many the net was not torn. Jesus said to them, “Come and have break­fast.” None of the dis­ci­ples dared ask him, “Who are you?” They knew it was the Lord. Jesus came, took the bread and gave it to them, and did the same with the fish. This was now the third time Jesus appeared to his dis­ci­ples after he was raised from the dead.  —  NIV
