John 21: 15 – 24

When they had eaten, Jesus said to Peter, “Do you love me more than these?”
“Yes, Lord,” he said, “you know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Feed my lambs.”

Again Jesus said, “Simon son of John, do you love me?”
He said, “Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Take care of my sheep.”

The third time he said to him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?”
Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, “Do you love me?” 
He said, “Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you.”

Jesus said, “Feed my sheep. Truly I tell you, when you were younger you dressed and went where you wanted;
but when you are old you will stretch out your hands,
and you and you will be lead and dressed where you do not want to go.” 
Jesus said this to indicate the kind of death by which Peter would glorify God. 

Then he said to him, “Follow me!”
Peter turned and saw that the disciple whom Jesus loved was following them.
When Peter saw him, he asked, “Lord, what about him?”
Jesus answered, “If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you?
You must follow me.” 

Because of this, the rumour spread among the believers that this disciple would not die.
But Jesus did not say that; he only said, 
“If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you?”

This is the disciple who testifies to these things 
and who wrote them down and we know that his testimony is true.
