sea of Tiberias; and on this wise shewed he himself. 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. 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



AT THE SEA OF GALILEE. 487

that night they caught nothing. But when the morning was now come,
Jesus stood on the shore: but the disciples knew not that it was Jesus.
Then Jesus saith unto them, Children, have ye any meat? They answered
him, No. And he said unto them, Cast the net on the right side of the
shij), and ye shall find. They cast therefore, and now they were not able
to draw it for the multitude of fishes. 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 east himself into the sea. 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. As soon then as they were come to land, they
saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid thereon, and bread. Jesus saith unto
them, Bring of the fish which ye have now caught. 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. Jesus
saith unto them, Come and dine. And none of the disciples durst ask him,
Who art thou? knowing that it was the Lord. Jesus then cometh, and
taketh bread, and giveth them, and fish likewise. This is now the third
time that Jesus shewed himself to his disciples, after that he was risen
from the dead.

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. 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. 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 my
sheep. Verily, verily, I say unto thee, When thou wast young, thou gird-
edst 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. This spake he, signifying by what
death he should glorify God. And when he had spoken this, he saith unto
him, Follow me. Then Pete.r ; 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? Jesus saith unto him, If I will that he tarry
till I come, what is that to thee? follow thou me. 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?*

This is the disciple which testifieth of these things, and wrote these
things: and we know that his testimony is true.

And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if

* The apostle John died at a great age, but something of that love for
the Lord of which John was the type has lived in the hearts of Christian
people, even in times when there was little true knowledge of Him.

ON HOLY GROUND.



they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself
could not contain the books that should be written. Amen. — John XXI.

Once more the Lord showed Himself to the disciples at
Jerusalem. He walked with them to Bethany on the Mount
of Olives, as He had so often done, and there He ascended
from their sight.

And he led them out as far as to Bethany, and he lifted up his hands,
and blessed them. And it came to pass, while he blessed them, he was
parted from them, and carried up into heaven. And they worshipped him,
and returned to Jerusalem with great joy : and were continually in the
temple, praising and blessing God. Amen. — Luke XXIV. 50S3.

And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working
with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen. — Mark
XVI. 20.
