Jesus' Restoration of Peter 5-28-23

May 28, 2023    Dr. Jim Glass

In the Lord's third appearance after the resurrection, He serves breakfast to the disciples on the shore of the Sea of Galilee. He asks Peter three times, "Do you love Me?," and each time Peter says he does, but he does so out of a great sense of failure for having denied the Lord on the night He was arrested. Still, Jesus commands him to care for His sheep. When Peter asks about John, the Lord tells him not to worry about what He had in store for him; he is to follow Jesus. Because the words seemed to suggest that John would not die, John corrects the misunderstanding.
