JOHN 21:1-6

Fishing

1 After this, Jesus appeared again to the disciples, this time at the Tiberias Sea (the Sea of Galilee). This is how he did it:
2 Simon Peter, Thomas (nicknamed "Twin"), Nathanael from Cana in Galilee, the brothers Zebedee, and two other disciples were together.
3 Simon Peter announced, "I'm going fishing." The rest of them replied, "We're going with you." They went out and got in the boat. They caught nothing that night.
4 When the sun came up, Jesus was standing on the beach, but they didn't recognize him.
5 Jesus spoke to them: "Good morning! Did you catch anything for breakfast?" They answered, "No."
6 He said, "Throw the net off the right side of the boat and see what happens." They did what he said. All of a sudden there were so many fish in it, they weren't strong enough to pull it in.

Kate's Notes:  (One Year With Jesus)....In this passage Jesus recommissioned Peter. Perhaps Peter needed special encouragement after his denial.

A CALL FROM THE BEACH

      Jesus had preformed a similar miracle for the disciples before. Luke 5:1-11 records how the disciples had experianced an unsuccessful night of fishing, only to have a record-breaking catch on Jesus' instructions. At the time, the disciples had been amazed to see that not only did Jesus teach, heal, and cast out demons, but He also cared about their day- to -day routine. Here the disciples had gone back to what they knew best-fishing. And Jesus came to them right where they were, performing another miracle to demonstrate His great love for them. Jesus meets us where we are, gently showing us where He wants us to be. Is He standing on the beach calling you? Pull in your boat and listen!
