Peter and six other disciples decided to go fishing. That night they did not catch anything. Early in the morning, Jesus appeared to them and asked them to throw their nets to the right side of their boat, whereupon they caught a miraculous amount of fish - 153 to be exact. Jesus had breakfast with them.
Jesus asked Peter to feed his lambs, and Simon to tend his sheep. Jesus hinted at the manner of Peter’s death, saying his hands would be stretched out and he will be led where he does not want to go.
Jesus did not say what the fate of John would be. John is the person who wrote this gospel – if John had written everything that Jesus had done, even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written.
This concludes the Gospel of John.
As I am writing this chapter, one of my Bible Study partner, John, is texting me about his plans to head out to Nags Head, NC, for fishing next weekend. I cannot go as I have undertaken a commitment. Next time, I told him.
What a blessing it is, to complete posting about all four Gospels and learning so much. I did not know any of these before. By going through the scripture chronologically, so many things became clear. I can now consider myself to be able to lean on those doors of a first grade Sunday School class and listen what's being taught inside (I think).
