of Jesus
A Restatement of the Gospels

177. The Visit with Peter


       
15When they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?”

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

       
He said to him, “Feed my lambs.”

       
16A second time he said to him, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?”

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

       
He said to him, “Tend my sheep.”

       
17He said to him a third time, “Simon, do you love me?”

       
Peter was grieved because he said to him the third time, “Do you love me?” And he said to him, “Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you.”

       
Jesus said to him, “Feed my sheep.”
19And after this he said to him, “Follow me.”

       
20Peter turned and saw John following them.
21When Peter saw him, he said to Jesus, “Lord, what about this man?”

       
22Jesus said to him, “If it is my will that he remain until I come back, what is that to you? Follow me!”

       
23The saying spread abroad among the brethren that this apostle was not to die [before the Master’s return]; yet Jesus did not say to him that he was not to die, but, “If it is my will that he remain until I come, what is that to you?”
