John 21:1-25

Jesus and the Miraculous Catch of Fish

1Afterward Jesus appeared again to his disciples, by the Sea of Galilee.21:1 Greek Tiberias It happened this way: 2Simon Peter, Thomas (also known as Didymus21:2 Thomas (Aramaic) and Didymus (Greek) both mean twin.), Nathanael from Cana in Galilee, the sons of Zebedee, and two other disciples were together. 3“I’m going out to fish,” Simon Peter told them, and they said, “We’ll go with you.” So they went out and got into the boat, but that night they caught nothing.

4Early in the morning, Jesus stood on the shore, but the disciples did not realize that it was Jesus.

5He called out to them, “Friends, haven’t you any fish?”

“No,” they answered.

6He said, “Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some.” When they did, they were unable to haul the net in because of the large number of fish.

7Then the disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, “It is the Lord!” As soon as Simon Peter heard him say, “It is the Lord,” he wrapped his outer garment around him (for he had taken it off) and jumped into the water. 8The other disciples followed in the boat, towing the net full of fish, for they were not far from shore, about a hundred yards.21:8 Or about 90 meters 9When they landed, they saw a fire of burning coals there with fish on it, and some bread.

10Jesus said to them, “Bring some of the fish you have just caught.” 11So Simon Peter climbed back into the boat and dragged the net ashore. It was full of large fish, 153, but even with so many the net was not torn. 12Jesus said to them, “Come and have breakfast.” None of the disciples dared ask him, “Who are you?” They knew it was the Lord. 13Jesus came, took the bread and gave it to them, and did the same with the fish. 14This was now the third time Jesus appeared to his disciples after he was raised from the dead.

Jesus Reinstates Peter

15When they had finished eating, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?”

“Yes, Lord,” he said, “you know that I love you.”

Jesus said, “Feed my lambs.”

16Again Jesus said, “Simon son of John, do you love me?”

He answered, “Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.”

Jesus said, “Take care of my sheep.”

17The third time he said to him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?”

Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, “Do you love me?” He said, “Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you.”

Jesus said, “Feed my sheep. 18Very truly I tell you, when you were younger you dressed yourself and went where you wanted; but when you are old you will stretch out your hands, and someone else will dress you and lead you where you do not want to go.” 19Jesus said this to indicate the kind of death by which Peter would glorify God. Then he said to him, “Follow me!”

20Peter turned and saw that the disciple whom Jesus loved was following them. (This was the one who had leaned back against Jesus at the supper and had said, “Lord, who is going to betray you?”) 21When Peter saw him, he asked, “Lord, what about him?”

22Jesus answered, “If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you? You must follow me.” 23Because of this, the rumor spread among the believers that this disciple would not die. But Jesus did not say that he would not die; he only said, “If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you?”

24This is the disciple who testifies to these things and who wrote them down. We know that his testimony is true.

25Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written.

Yesu Yi Ne Ho Adi Bio

1Akyire no, Yesu yii ne ho adi bio wɔ Tiberia Po ho kyerɛɛ nʼasuafoɔ no mu bi. Ɛkwan a ɔfaa so yii ne ho adi kyerɛɛ wɔn no nie: 2Saa ɛberɛ no, na Simon Petro, ne Toma (a wɔfrɛ no Ata), ne Natanael a ɔfiri Kana a ɛwɔ Galilea ne Sebedeo mma ne Yesu asuafoɔ no mu baanu na na wɔwɔ ɔtadeɛ no ho. 3Wɔwɔ hɔ no, Petro ka kyerɛɛ wɔn a wɔaka no sɛ, “Merekɔyi nam.” Wɔn a na wɔka ne ho no ka kyerɛɛ no sɛ, “Yɛne wo bɛkɔ.” Wɔn nyinaa kɔtenaa kodoɔ mu kɔɔ ɛpo, nanso saa anadwo no wɔanyi nam biara.

4Adeɛ kyee anɔpa a anim retete no, Yesu bɛgyinaa mpoano hɔ, nanso na asuafoɔ no nnim sɛ ɛyɛ ɔno.

5Ɔfrɛɛ asuafoɔ no bisaa wɔn sɛ, “Anuanom, moayi nam bi anaa?”

7Afei, osuani a Yesu dɔ no no ka kyerɛɛ Petro sɛ, “Ɛyɛ Awurade.” Ɛberɛ a Simon Petro tee sɛ ɛyɛ Awurade no, ɔhyɛɛ nʼatadeɛ, huri tɔɔ nsuo no mu dware kɔɔ mpoano hɔ. 8Asuafoɔ a wɔaka no tenaa kodoɔ no mu baa mpoano hɔ bi.

Petro Kyerɛ Ne Dɔ

15Wɔdidi wieeɛ no, Yesu bisaa Simon Petro sɛ, “Yohane ba Simon, wodɔ me sene sɛdeɛ yeinom dɔ me no anaa?”

Petro buaa sɛ, “Aane, Awurade, wonim sɛ medɔ wo.”

Yesu ka kyerɛɛ no sɛ, “Yɛne me nnwammaa.”

16Yesu sane bisaa no sɛ, “Yohane ba Simon, wodɔ me anaa?”

Petro sane buaa sɛ, “Aane, Awurade, wonim sɛ medɔ wo.”

Yesu sane ka kyerɛɛ no sɛ, “Hwɛ me nnwan.”

17Yesu bisaa no ne mprɛnsa so sɛ, “Yohane ba Simon, ampa ara sɛ wodɔ me?”

Asɛm yi yɛɛ Petro awerɛhoɔ sɛ Yesu abisa no saa asɛm korɔ no ara mprɛnsa. Enti, ɔka kyerɛɛ Yesu sɛ, “Awurade, wonim biribiara, na wonim nso sɛ, medɔ wo!”

Yesu ka kyerɛɛ no sɛ, “Yɛne me nnwan. 18Meka nokorɛ akyerɛ wo. Woyɛ aberanteɛ no, na wotumi siesie wo ho kɔ baabiara a wopɛ, na woyɛ deɛ wopɛ biara nso. Nanso, sɛ wobɔ akɔkoraa a, wobɛtene wo nsam na obi asiesie wo ho ama wo, de wo akɔ baabi a anka wompɛ sɛ wokɔ.” 19Asɛm a Yesu kaeɛ no, ɔde kyerɛɛ owu ko a Petro bɛwu de ahyɛ Onyankopɔn animuonyam. Yesu ka kyerɛɛ Petro sɛ, “Di mʼakyi.”

20Petro twaa nʼani hwɛɛ nʼakyi hunuu sɛ osuani a Yesu dɔ no no di wɔn akyi. Saa osuani yi ne obi a wɔredidi no, ɔtwe bɛn Yesu bisaa no sɛ, “Awurade, hwan na ɔbɛyi wo ama” no? 21Petro hunuu saa osuani yi no, ɔbisaa Yesu sɛ, “Awurade, na yei nso ɛdeɛn na ɛbɛto no?”

22Yesu buaa no sɛ, “Sɛ mepɛ sɛ ɔtena hɔ kɔsi sɛ mɛsane aba a, ɛfa wo ho bɛn? Wo deɛ, di mʼakyi.” 23Asɛm a Yesu ka faa saa osuani yi ho no maa Yesu akyidifoɔ no mu pii susuu sɛ, saa osuani no renwu da. Nanso, na ɛnyɛ deɛ Yesu hwehwɛ akyerɛ ne no, ɛberɛ a ɔkaa sɛ, “Sɛ mepɛ sɛ ɔtena hɔ kɔsi sɛ mɛsane aba a, ɛfa wo ho bɛn?”

24Saa osuani yi ne onipa a ɔdi yeinom nyinaa ho adanseɛ na ɔtwerɛeɛ nso. Yɛnim sɛ nʼadanseɛ no yɛ nokorɛ.

25Nneɛma bebree wɔ hɔ nso a Yesu yɛeɛ a wɔantwerɛ, na sɛ wɔtwerɛeɛ no mmaako mmaako a, anka megye di sɛ ɛrensene ewiase.
