People's Bible Notes for John 21:14


Joh 21:14 The third time that Jesus shewed himself to his disciples. John does not say that this was the third appearance of Jesus, but the third time he had showed himself to the "disciples", or apostles, for that is the sense in which "disciples" is here, and often, used. The first time was his appearance to the ten apostles, on the evening of the day of the resurrection (Joh 20:19). The second was to the eleven (Thomas was now present) one week later (Joh 20:26).

    Sheep and Lambs are All The Believers, His Elect. Jesus is Telling Simon Peter to Feed His Elect. All Through The Scriptures Believers are Called Sheep or Lambs. Know Ye that The LORD He is God: it is He that hath Made Us and not We Ourselves; We are His People and The Sheep of His Pasture(Psalm100:3)Go Your ways; Behold I Send You Forth as Lambs among Wolves(Luke 10:3) Two Different Languages.

    John 21:15, 16, 17. v15 Lambs are the Apostles , v16 Sheep are the Jews, v17 Sheep are the Gentiles. v15 see John 20 v21 Christ was sent for our sins, the Apostles are being sent for the establishment of the Church. see Romans 1:16 Jew first then the Gentiles. Every where that Peter went the Holy Spirit was introduced.
  • William
    Interestingly enough, Jesus leaves us with plenty of information for the believer and pursuers to answer the questions of existence for themselves and equally to inquire among themselves.

    John21:1-14 when God makes something clear let us not doubt or insult Him with demands for further verification
  • Eutychus
    "There were together Simon Peter, and Thomas called Didymus, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two other of his disciples." Some scholars maintain that NATHANAEL of Cana is the same as the disciple/apostle Bartholomew (Mark 3:18).

    To ''a disciple":
