Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, 3 and two other of his disciples. Simon Peter saith unto
them, I go a fishing. They say unto him, We also go with
thee. They went forth, and entered into a ship immediately; 4 and that night they caught nothing. But when the morn
ing was now come, Jesus stood on the shore: but the 5 disciples knew not that it was Jesus. Then Jesus saith
unto them, Children, have ye any meat ? They answered 6 him, No. And he said unto them, Cast the net on the
right side of the ship, and ye shall find. They cast there
fore, and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude 7 of fishes. Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved saith

And 8 the other disciples came in a little ship, (for they were not far from land, but as it were two hundred cubits,) dragging the net with fishes. As soon then as they were come to 9 land, they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid thereon, and bread. Jesus saith unto them, Bring of the fish which 10 ye have now caught. Simon Peter went up, and drew the 11 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. Jesus saith unto them, Come and dine. And 12 none of the disciples durst ask him, Who art thou? knowing that it was the Lord. Jesus then cometh, and taketh 13 bread, and giveth them, and fish likewise. This is now 14 the third time that Jesus shewed himself to his disciples, after that he was risen from the dead.
So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, 15 Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these ? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs. He saith to 16 him again the second time, Sirnon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep. He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, 17 lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep. · Verily, 18 verily, I say unto thee, When thou wast young, thou girdedst 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. This spake he, signifying by what death he should 19 glorify God. And when he had spoken this, he saith unto him, Follow me. Then Peter, turning about, seeth the 20 disciple whom Jesus loved following ; which also leaned on. his breast at supper, and said, Lord, which is he that naked-deprived of his outer coat.' 1 Sa. xix. 24. lambs.

thren, 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

remission of sins should be preached in his name among all 48 nations, beginning at Jerusalem. And ye are witnesses of
