John 21:15-19 

 

When they had eaten their meal, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon ben-John, do you love me more than these?”

Peter said, “Yes, Rabbi, you know that I’m your friend.”

Jesus replied, “Feed my lambs.”

A second time Jesus put the question, “Simon ben-John, do you love me?”

Peter said, “Yes, Rabbi, you know that I’m your friend.”

Jesus replied, “Tend my sheep.”

A third time Jesus asked him, “Simon ben-John, do you love me as a friend would?”

Peter was hurt because Jesus asked, “Do you love me?” a third time. So he said, “You know everything, Rabbi. You know that I am your friend.”

Jesus said, “Feed my sheep.

The truth of the matter is,

when you were young,

you put on your own belt

and walked where you liked;

but when you get old,

you will stretch out your hands

and someone else will put a belt around you

and take you where you don’t want to go.”

With these words, Jesus indicated the kind of death by which Peter would glorify God.

Then the saviour said, “Follow me.”
