JESUS’ THIRD APPEARANCE TO THE DISCIPLES

21 After this, Jesus revealede himself again to his disciples by the Sea of Tiberias.f He revealed himself in this way:

Simon Peter,g Thomash (called “Twin”B), Nathanaeli from Cana of Galilee,j Zebedee’sk sons, and two others of his disciples were together.

“I’m going fishing,” Simon Peter said to them.

“We’re coming with you,” they told him. They went out and got into the boat, but that night they caught nothing.l

When daybreak came, Jesus stood on the shore, but the disciples did not know it was Jesus.m “Friends,”C Jesus called to them, “you don’t have any fish, do you?”

“No,” they answered.

“Cast the net on the right side of the boat,” he told them, “and you’ll find some.” So they did,D and they were unable to haul it in because of the large number of fish. The disciple, the one Jesus loved, said to Peter, “It is the Lord!”n

When Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he tied his outer clothing around him (for he had taken it off) and plunged into the sea. Since they were not far from land (about a hundred yardsE,o away), the other disciples came in the boat,p dragging the net full of fish. When they got out on land, they saw a charcoal fire there, with fish lying on it, and bread. 10 “Bring some of the fish you’ve just caught,” Jesus told them. 11 So Simon Peter climbed up and hauled the net ashore, full of large fish—153 of them. Even though there were so many, the net was not torn.q

12 “Come and have breakfast,” Jesus told them. None of the disciples dared ask him, “Who are you?” because they knew it was the Lord. 13 Jesus came, took the bread, and gave it to them. He did the same with the fish. 14 This was now the third timer Jesus appeared* ,s to the disciples after he was raised from the dead.

JESUS’ THREEFOLD RESTORATION OF PETER

15 When they had eaten breakfast, Jesus asked Simon Peter, “Simon, son of John,* do you love me more than these?”

“Yes, Lord,” he said to him, “you know that I love you.”

“Feed t my lambs,”u he told him. 16 A second time he asked him, “Simon, son of John, do you lovev me?”w

“Yes, Lord,” he said to him, “you know that I love you.”

“Shepherdx my sheep,”y he told him.

17 He asked him the third time, “Simon, son of John, do you lovez me?”

Peter was grievedaa that he asked him the third time, “Do you love me?” He said, “Lord, you know everything;ab you know that I love you.”

“Feedac my sheep,” Jesus said. 18 “Truly I tell you,ad when you were younger, you would tie your belt and walk wherever you wanted. But when you grow old, you will stretch out your hands and someone else will tie you and carry you where you don’t want to go.” 19 He said this to indicate by what kind of deathae Peter would glorify God.af After saying this, he told him, “Follow me.”ag

CORRECTING A FALSE REPORT

20 So Peter turned around and saw the disciple Jesus lovedah following them, the one who had leaned back against Jesus at the supper and asked, “Lord, who is the one that’s going to betray you?”ai 21 When Peter saw him, he said to Jesus, “Lord, what about him?”

22 “If I want him to remain until I come,”aj Jesus answered, “what is that to you? As for you, follow me.”

23 So this rumorH spread to the brothers and sistersak that this disciple would not die.al Yet Jesus did not tell him that he would not die, but, “If I want him to remain until I come, what is that to you?”

EPILOGUE

24 This is the disciple who testifies to these things and who wrote them down. We know that his testimony is true.

25 And there are also many other things that Jesus did, which, if every one of them were written down, I suppose not even the world itself could contain the booksI that would be written.am

CSB

About Christian Standard Bible

The Christian Standard Bible (CSB) is a highly trustworthy, faithful translation that is proven to be the optimal blend of accuracy and readability. It’s as literal to the original as possible without sacrificing clarity. The CSB is poised to become the translation that pastors rely on and Bible readers turn to again and again to read and to share with others.

The CSB is an original translation: more than 100 scholars from 17 denominations translated directly from the best available Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic source texts into English. Its source texts are the standard used by scholars and seminaries today.

The CSB is trustworthy: the conservative, evangelical scholars of the CSB affirm the authority of Scripture as the inerrant Word of God and seek the highest level of faithfulness to the original and accuracy in their translation. These scholars and LifeWay, the non-profit ministry that stewards the CSB, also champion the Bible against cultural trends that would compromise its truths.

The CSB is clear: it is as literal a translation of the ancient source texts as possible, but, in the many places throughout Scripture where a word-for-word rendering might obscure the meaning for a modern audience, it uses a more dynamic translation. In all cases, the intent is to convey the original meaning of God’s Word as faithfully and as clearly as possible.
