GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
ACCORDING TO JOHN
Van Nattan's questions are in blue and are NOT inspired and final. You do not
have to agree with Steve. Also, if you do not understand something you are reading,
do not stop and dwell on it too long. Just keep reading and deal with what you
21:1 After these things Jesus shewed himself again to the disciples at the sea
of Tiberias; and on this wise shewed he himself.
2 There were together Simon
Peter, and Thomas called Didymus, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons
of Zebedee, and two other of his disciples.
3 Simon Peter saith unto them,
I go a fishing. They say unto him, We also go with thee. They went forth, and
entered into a ship immediately; and that night they caught nothing.
when the morning was now come, Jesus stood on the shore: but the disciples knew
not that it was Jesus.
5 Then Jesus saith unto them, Children, have ye any
meat? They answered him, No.
6 And he said unto them, Cast the net on the
right side of the ship, and ye shall find. They cast therefore, and now they were
not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes.
7 Therefore that disciple
whom Jesus loved saith unto Peter, It is the Lord. Now when Simon Peter heard
that it was the Lord, he girt his fisher's coat unto him, (for he was naked,)
and did cast himself into the sea.
8 And the other disciples came in a little
ship; (for they were not far from land, but as it were two hundred cubits,) dragging
the net with fishes.
9 As soon then as they were come to land, they saw a
fire of coals there, and fish laid thereon, and bread.
10 Jesus saith unto
them, Bring of the fish which ye have now caught.
11 Simon Peter went up,
and drew the net to land full of great fishes, an hundred and fifty and three:
and for all there were so many, yet was not the net broken.
12 Jesus saith
unto them, Come and dine. And none of the disciples durst ask him, Who art thou?
knowing that it was the Lord.
13 Jesus then cometh, and taketh bread, and
giveth them, and fish likewise.
14 This is now the third time that Jesus shewed
himself to his disciples, after that he was risen from the dead.
15 So when
they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me
more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee.
He saith unto him, Feed my lambs.
16 He saith to him again the second time,
Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest
that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep.
17 He saith unto him the
third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he
said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou
knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed
18 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, When thou wast young, thou girdedst
thyself, and walkedst whither thou wouldest: but when thou shalt be old, thou
shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee, and carry thee whither
thou wouldest not.
19 This spake he, signifying by what death he should glorify
God. And when he had spoken this, he saith unto him, Follow me.
20 Then Peter,
turning about, seeth the disciple whom Jesus loved following; which also leaned
on his breast at supper, and said, Lord, which is he that betrayeth thee?
Peter seeing him saith to Jesus, Lord, and what shall this man do?
saith unto him, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? follow
23 Then went this saying abroad among the brethren, that that disciple
should not die: yet Jesus said not unto him, He shall not die; but, If I will
that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee?
24 This is the disciple which
testifieth of these things, and wrote these things: and we know that his testimony
25 And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which,
if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could
not contain the books that should be written. Amen.
the key verse of John:
20:31 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ,
Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.
to help you decide if you believe the Gospel in John Chapter Twenty One
1-14- Great things were coming. Jesus Christ would use these eleven men to start
his Church which would sweep around the world and change millions of lives in
many nations. But, what did Jesus do? He met his best friends at the shore of
the lake, he helped them fish like he had long ago, and then he cooked breakfast
for them. Do you see what Jesus is showing these men, and YOU? You and I are to
serve others, make breakfast for them, teach them to fish, and give them the Gospel
of Jesus Christ.
12- Can you say for certain that you now KNOW the Lord Jesus?
15-25- The last message Jesus gave was this:
my sheep- Verse 15-17
thou me- Verse 22
you doing that?
to the song, "I
Have Decided To Follow Jesus" Sing along.
Find other Christians who love and follow Jesus Christ with zeal.
Get a King James Bible and read some part of it every day.
Tell people you belong to Jesus-- talk about him to other people every day.
10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe
in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession
is made unto salvation.
11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on
him shall not be ashamed.
Talk to Jesus often- If you sin again, confess it to him at once. Jesus died to
wash that sin away too, but he wants you to repent of it and leave it behind.
Talk to him about anything that bothers you. Ask him for help. But, most important,
find a time each day to be alone with Jesus and just thank him for all the good
things he did for you, and is doing for you. You saw the love Jesus had for his
disciples. Well, he is God, and he has enough love to go around. He loves you
intensely and wants to hear from you often.
look forward to meeting you in heaven when we all gather with Jesus. You read
that he will come again and take us to himself. What a time we will have then.
Thanks for staying with the book through all 21 chapters. Now, don't stop reading
your Bible. It is full of things you need to know.
6:24 The LORD bless thee, and keep thee:
25 The LORD make his face shine upon
thee, and be gracious unto thee:
26 The LORD lift up his countenance upon
thee, and give thee peace.
