Story also available on our translated websites: Portuguese, Hindi
After Jesus rose from the dead He appeared again to Hs disciples. This is what happened. Peter, Thomas, Nathanael, James and John the sons of Zebedee and two other followers decided to go fishing on Lake Galilee. – Slide 1
They stayed out all night but did not catch any fish. – Slide 2
Early the next morning Jesus stood on the shore but the disciples did not know it was Him. ‘Children, have you caught any fish?’ He asked them. – Slide 3
‘No,’ they answered sadly. – Slide 4
Jesus said to them, ‘Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will catch some fish.’ – Slide 5
They did as Jesus told them and caught so many fish they could not pull the net back into the boat. – Slide 6
John the disciple realised who the man on the beach was. ‘It is the Lord!’ he said with excitement. – Slide 7
When Peter heard this, he immediately put his coat on and jumped into the water. He was so happy to see Jesus and wanted to go and meet Him. – Slide 8
The rest of the disciples came ashore dragging the net with them. They were not far from the beach. – Slide 9
Jesus was waiting for them. There was a fire with fish cooking on it and some bread. He said, ‘Bring some of the fish that you caught.’ – Slide 10
Peter quickly went and dragged the net up the shore. It was full of great fish - 153 of them - but the net had not broken. – Slide 11
Jesus asked them to come and eat. None of the disciples asked, ‘Who are you?’ They knew it was the Lord. This was the third time Jesus appeared to the disciples after He rose from the dead. – Slide 12
After eating Jesus asked Peter, ‘Do you love me more than these others?' <br/>‘Yes Lord you know that I love you,’ Peter replied. <br/>‘Feed my lambs,’ said Jesus. – Slide 13
A second time Jesus asked Peter, ‘Do you love me?’ <br/>‘Yes Lord you know that I love you,’ Peter answered. <br/>‘Feed my sheep,’ said Jesus. – Slide 14
A third time Jesus asked Peter, ‘Do you love me?’ Now Peter was sad and replied, ‘Yes Lord you know all things. You know that I love you.’ <br/>‘Feed my sheep,’ said Jesus once more. – Slide 15
Then Jesus said to Peter, ‘When you were young you dressed yourself and went where you wanted. But when you are old someone else will dress you and take you where you do not want to go.’ <br/>Jesus said this to explain how Peter would give his life for the gospel. – Slide 16
Then Peter turned around and saw John the disciple and said to Jesus, ‘What about him?’ – Slide 17
Jesus answered, ‘If I want him to wait until I return, what is that to you? Follow me.’ – Slide 18
There were many other things that Jesus did. If all the stories about Jesus were written down there would not be room enough in the world to hold all the books. – Slide 19
