Feed My Sheep

Feed My Lambs - James Tissot [Public domain], via Wikimedia CommonsLast week there were so many fish in that Bible story.

Can we just do that story again this week?

What do you mean, I can go back and read it.

It’s not the same as hearing it.

Besides, I can’t read.

Oh alright, I’ll listen to the next story.


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


I bet he really does love Jesus after Jesus helped him catch all that fish.

Well, is there a better reason to love someone besides food?


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

Jesus said, “Feed my lambs.”


I’ll feed Jesus’ lambs if He helps me catch fish.

I am listening.


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

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

Jesus said, “Take care of my sheep.”


Jesus has sheep?


The 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.”


I think I’d better get my herding type friends to help Peter.

Jesus might have a lot of sheep.

Yes, I’ll listen.


Jesus said to Peter, “I tell you the truth, 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.”


I guess it’s a good thing I don’t have hands.

Nobody can stretch mine out.


Jesus said this to indicate the kind of death by which Peter would glorify God. Then He said to him, “Follow me!”



If you follow Jesus you get fish, but then you might die for Him?

I have to think about this.


Peter 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?”) When Peter saw him, he asked, “Lord, what about him?”


I guess Peter was thinking about it too.


Jesus answered, “If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you? You must follow me.”


I guess that says that.


Because of this, the rumor spread among the brothers 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?”


I don’t think that guy’s dead yet.

I wonder if he has any fish left.

I think I’ll go look for him.
