Jesus and Peter

Daily Gospel Reading – John 21jesus-christ-feed-my-sheep_1167435_inl:15-19

15 So when they had eaten breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of John, do you love Me more than these?”

He said to Him, “Yes, Lord. You know that I love You.”

He said to him, “Feed My lambs.”

16 He said to him again a second time, “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.”

17 He said to him the third time, “Simon, son of John, do you love Me?”

Peter was grieved because He asked him the third time, “Do you love Me?” He said to Him, “Lord, You know everything. You know that I love You.”

Jesus said to him, “Feed My sheep. 18 Truly, truly I say to you, when you were young, you dressed yourself and walked where you desired. But when you are old, you will stretch out your hands, and another will dress you and carry you where you do not want to go.” 19 He said this, signifying by what kind of death he would glorify God. When He had said this, He said to him, “Follow Me.”
