Study 41 From the Book of John: John 21:1-14
1. Compare this passage with Lk. 5:1-11, noting the similarities and the differences. Why did the disciples take up their old work again? What did they learn from this experience?
What did the Lord reveal here (a) about Himself, (b) about the work which the disciples were to do? How does this revelation of the risen Lord affect your own life and work?
Note. Verse 14. ‘The third time’: first time, 20:19-23; second time, 20:24-29; third time, now in Galilee. See Mk. 16:7. Probably the third recorded by this Gospel is meant here.
