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 Alabikira Abayigirizwa be musanvu

121:1 a Yk 20:19, 26 b Yk 6:1Ebyo bwe byaggwa, Yesu n’alabikira nate abayigirizwa be, ku nnyanja ey’e Tiberiya.21:1 ye Nnyanja ey’e Ggaliraaya Yabalabikira bw’ati: 221:2 a Yk 11:16 b Yk 1:45 c Yk 2:1 d Mat 4:21Simooni Peetero, ne Tomasi ayitibwa Didumo, ne Nassanayiri ow’e Kaana eky’e Ggaliraaya, ne batabani ba Zebbedaayo, n’abayigirizwa abalala babiri, bonna baali wamu. 321:3 Luk 5:5Simooni Peetero n’abagamba nti, “ŋŋenda kuvuba.” Ne bamugamba nti, “Ka tugende ffenna.” Ne bagenda ne basaabala mu lyato. Naye ekiro ekyo kyonna ne batakwasaayo kintu.

421:4 Luk 24:16; Yk 20:14Bwe bwali bukya, Yesu n’ayimirira ku lubalama, naye abayigirizwa ne batamutegeera.

5Yesu n’ababuuza nti, “Abaana, mukwasizzaayo?”

Ne baddamu nti, “Nedda.”

621:6 Luk 5:4-7Yesu n’abagamba nti, “Kale musuule akatimba ku luuyi olwa ddyo olw’eryato, mujja ku kukwasa.” Awo ne basuula, naye ne batasobola kukannyulula olw’ebyennyanja ebingi bye baakwasa!

721:7 Yk 13:23Awo omuyigirizwa oyo Yesu gwe yayagalanga ennyo n’agamba Peetero nti, “Oyo Mukama waffe!” Simooni Peetero bwe yakiwulira ne yeesiba olugoye kubanga yali mu kakutu, ne yeesuula mu mazzi. 8Abayigirizwa abalala bo ne bajjira mu lyato nga basika akatimba akaalimu ebyennyanja. Tebaali wala n’olukalu, baali nga mita kyenda. 921:9 a Yk 18:18 b nny 10, 13Awo bwe baatuuka ne basanga omuliro ogw’amanda nga gwaka, nga kuliko ekyennyanja n’omugaati.

10Yesu n’abagamba nti, “Muleete ku byennyanja bye muva okukwasa kaakano.”

11Awo Simooni Peetero n’agenda n’awalula akatimba n’akatuusa ku lukalu, nga kajjudde ebyennyanja ebinene kikumi mu ataano mu bisatu. Newaakubadde nga byali bingi bwe bityo naye akatimba tekaakutuka. 12Yesu n’abagamba nti, “Mujje mulye ekyenkya.” Naye ku bayigirizwa tewaali n’omu yategana ku mubuuza nti, “Ggwe ani?” Kubanga bonna baamanya nti ye Mukama waffe. 1321:13 nny 9Yesu n’atoola omugaati n’abagabira era n’ebyennyanja n’akola bw’atyo. 1421:14 Yk 20:19, 26Guno gwe mulundi ogwokusatu Yesu gwe yalabikira abayigirizwa be, ng’amaze okuzuukira.

Yesu Azzaamu Peetero Amaanyi

1521:15 a Mat 26:33, 35; Yk 13:37 b Luk 12:32Bwe baamala okulya, Yesu n’agamba Peetero nti, “Simooni omwana wa Yokaana, onjagala okusinga bano?”

Peetero n’addamu nti, “Ddala, omanyi nga nkwagala nnyo.”

Yesu n’amugamba nti, “Kale liisanga abaana b’endiga zange.”

1621:16 Mat 2:6; Bik 20:28; 1Pe 5:2, 3Yesu n’amubuuza omulundi ogwokubiri nti, “Simooni omwana wa Yokaana, ddala onjagala?”

Peetero n’addamu nti, “Ddala, Mukama wange, omanyi nga nkwagala.” Yesu n’amugamba nti, “Kale lundanga endiga zange.”

1721:17 a Yk 13:38 b Yk 16:30 c nny 16Yesu n’abuuza Peetero omulundi ogwokusatu nti, “Simooni omwana wa Yokaana, onjagala?”

Peetero n’anakuwala kubanga Yesu yamubuuza omulundi ogwokusatu nti, “Onjagala?” Peetero n’amuddamu nti, “Mukama wange ggwe omanyi buli kimu, omanyi nga nkwagala.”

Yesu n’amugamba nti, “Kale liisanga endiga zange. 18Bwe wali ng’okyali muvubuka wasobolanga okukola buli kye wayagalanga era ng’ogenda buli gye weetaaganga naye bw’olikaddiwa oligolola emikono gyo, omuntu omulala n’akusiba n’akutwala gy’otoyagala.” 1921:19 a Yk 12:33; 18:32 b 2Pe 1:14Ekyo Yesu yakyogera ng’alaga enfa Peetero gy’alifaamu okuweesa Katonda ekitiibwa. Awo n’amugamba nti, “Ngoberera.”

Oyo ye muyigiriza eyagalamira okumpi n’ekifuba kya Yesu nga balya ekyekiro eky’enkomerero, amale abuuze Yesu nti, “Mukama waffe ani agenda okukulyamu olukwe?” 21Peetero bwe yamulaba kwe kubuuza Yesu nti, “Mukama wange, ate ono aliba atya?”

2221:22 a Mat 16:27; 1Ko 4:5; Kub 2:25 b nny 19Yesu n’amugamba nti, “Bwe njagala abeerawo okutuusa lwe ndikomawo, ofaayo ki? Ggwe goberera Nze.” 2321:23 Bik 1:16Awo ekigambo ekyo ne kibuna mu booluganda nti omuyigirizwa oyo talifa. Naye Yesu teyagamba nti omuyigirizwa oyo talifa, wabula yagamba bugambi nti, “Bwe njagala abeerawo okutuusa lwe ndikomawo, ofaayo ki?”

2421:24 a Yk 15:27 b Yk 19:35Oyo ye muyigirizwa akakasa bino era ye yabiwandiika. Era tumanyi nga by’ategeeza bya mazima.
