XXI.  After these things Jesus ashewed himself again to the disciples bat the sea of Tiberias; and on this wise shewed he himself.  2 There were together Simon Peter, and Thomas ccalled Didymus, and dNathanael of eCana in Galilee, and fthe sons of Zebedee, and two other of his disciples.  3 Simon Peter saith unto them, I go a fishing. They say unto him, We also go with thee. They went forth, and tentered into a ship immediately; and gthat night they caught nothing.  4 But when the morning was now come, hJesus stood on the shore: but the disciples iknew not that it was Jesus.  5 Then Jesus saith unto them, *kChildren, have ye any meat? lThey answered him, No.  6 And mhe said unto them, Cast the net on the right side of the ship, and ye shall find. They cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes.  7 Therefore that disciple nwhom Jesus loved saith unto Peter, It is the Lord. Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he ogirt his fisher’s coat unto him, (for he was pnaked,) and did cast himself into the sea.  8 And the other disciples came in qa little ship; (for they were not far from land, but as it were two hundred cubits,) dragging the net with fishes.  9 As soon then as they were come to land, they saw ra fire of coals there, and sfish laid thereon, and bread.  10 Jesus saith unto them, Bring of the sfish which ye have now caught.  11 Simon Peter twent up, and drew the net to land full of great fishes, an hundred and fifty and three: and for all there were so many, yet was not the net broken.  12 Jesus saith unto them, uCome and xdine. And none of the disciples durst ask him, Who art thou? knowing that it was the Lord.  13 uJesus then cometh, and ytaketh bread, and giveth them, and fish likewise.  14 This is now zthe third time that Jesus shewed himself zto his disciples, after that he was risen from the dead.

 15 So when they had xdined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, aSimon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me bmore than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs.  16 He saith to him again the second time, aSimon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, cFeed my sheep.  17 He saith unto him the third time, aSimon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him dthe third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, ethou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.  18 fVerily, verily, I say unto thee, When thou wast young, thou ggirdedst thyself, and walkedst whither thou wouldest: but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee, and carry thee whither thou wouldest not.  19 hThis spake he, signifying iby what death he should hglorify God. And when he had spoken this, he saith unto him, kFollow me.  20 Then Peter, turning about, seeth the disciple lwhom Jesus loved following; mwhich also leaned on his breast at supper, and said, Lord, which is he that betrayeth thee?  21 Peter seeing him saith to Jesus, Lord, and what shall this man do?  22 Jesus saith unto him, If I will that he ntarry otill I come, what is that to thee? kfollow thou me.  23 Then went this saying abroad among pthe brethren, that that disciple should not die: yet Jesus said not unto him, He shall not die; but, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee?

 24 This is the disciple which testifieth of these things, and wrote these things: and qwe know rthat his testimony is true.  25 sAnd there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that teven the world itself could not ucontain the books that should be written. Amen.
