Jesus and Peter

John 21

15 So when they had eaten breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, "Simon, son of 1 Jonah, do you love Me more than these?" He said to Him, "Yes, Lord; You know that I 2 love You." He said to him, l "Feed My lambs." 16 He said to him again a second time, "Simon, son of 3 Jonah, do you love Me?" He said to Him, "Yes, Lord; You know that I 4 love You." m He said to him, "Tend My n sheep." 17 He said to him the third time, "Simon, son of 5 Jonah, do you 6 love Me?" Peter was grieved because He said to him the third time, "Do you love Me?" And he said to Him, "Lord, o You know all things; You know that I love You." Jesus said to him, "Feed My sheep. 18 p "Most assuredly, I say to you, when you were younger, you girded yourself and walked where you wished; but when you are old, you will stretch out your hands, and another will gird you and carry you where you do not wish." 19 This He spoke, signifying q by what death he would glorify God. And when He had spoken this, He said to him, r "Follow Me."
