THE GOOD MESSAGE OF
JESUS THE CHRIST
Interpretation

99. Jesus Comes to the Disciples Fishing.

Jesus appeared again when seven of his disciples were fishing in the Sea of Galilee. Just as he had helped Simon catch fish at the beginning of his ministry, so he did so again to symbolize that with his assistance they were to catch people. Then to balance Peter's three denials, Jesus asked him three times if he loved him; each time when Simon answered he directed him to take care of his sheep. As the leader, Peter was to be the servant of all, and Jesus prophesied how he would die when he was old. The relationship between Jesus and John was more mystical, and he was to wait for the coming of the Christ consciousness.
