Text: John 21:1-14 | Series: John 12-21

In this final chapter of the book of John, he recounts Jesus’ appearing to the disciples for the third time after His resurrection.

Seven of the remaining eleven disciples were present then including Peter, Thomas, Nathanael, James and John, and two other unnamed disciples. Jesus revealed Himself to them (John 21:1, 14) as they were back in Galilee (Mark 14:28, 16:7).

The disciples had been fishing the whole night but caught nothing. Jesus appeared to them at the break of dawn, telling them to cast the net one more time, with specific instructions (6).net was not torn.

We then see a touching scene; Jesus was waiting for them at the shore – He made them breakfast

“Come and have breakfast,” Jesus said to them (John 21:12).

What a shock and delight it must have been for the disciples!

Jesus, the Risen King, was making breakfast for them!

Listen on to the whole sermon to discover the significance of these events for the disciples; what it meant for the remaining time that Jesus had on earth and for us, believers, who are reading the story today.
