A favorite scene
The disciples had gone to Galilee as Jesus had instructed them. They are bored sitting around and waiting so Peter announces that he is going fishing and six of them go with him. They toil all night and catch nothing. Jesus waits for them on the shore and has even prepared breakfast for them. He calls to them to ask if they have any fish. When they answer in the negative, he tells them to cast their nets and this time the catch of fish is huge. John at once realizes that it is Jesus on the shore and Peter cannot wait for the boat to reach land but throws himself into the sea. Then Jesus tells them to bring more fish to his fire as he knows they are tired and hungry. After breakfast, he will ask Peter three times. "Do you love me?"
How many times does Jesus ask me the same question?
