John 21:2-8

The Word of God

Gathered there together were Simon Peter, Thomas called the Twin, Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, the sons of Zebedee, and two others of his disciples. Simon Peter said to them, "I am going fishing." They said to him, "We will go with you." They went out and got into the boat, but that night they caught nothing. Just after daybreak, Jesus stood on the beach; but the disciples did not know that it was Jesus. Jesus said to them, "Children, you have no fish, have you?" They answered him, "No." He said to them, "Cast the net to the right side of the boat, and you will find some." So they cast it, and now they were not able to haul it in because there were so many fish. That disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, "It is the Lord!" When Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he put on some clothes, for he was naked, and jumped into the sea. But the other disciples came in the boat, dragging the net full of fish, for they were not far from the land, only about a hundred yards off.

    • Tradition places this daybreak encounter at Dalmanutha. The apostles were bored and dithering until Peter took the lead and went fishing. He was still, in his own eyes, as much a traitor as Judas, but his heart was in a different place. When he suspected that the stranger was Jesus, he rushed headlong towards him, not doubting for a moment that he would be forgiven.
    • Lord, I want to have that same confidence in you in all my dealings.
