Epilogue 尾声

Afterward Jesus appeared again to his disciples, by the Sea of Galilee. It happened this way: Simon Peter, Thomas (also known as Didymus), Nathanael from Cana in Galilee, the sons of Zebedee, and two other disciples were together. “I’m going out to fish,” Simon Peter told them, and they said, “We’ll go with you.” So they went out and got into the boat, but that night they caught nothing. Early in the morning, Jesus stood on the shore, but the disciples did not realize that it was Jesus. He called out to them, “Friends, haven’t you any fish?” “No,” they answered. He said, “Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some.” When they did, they were unable to haul the net in because of the large number of fish. Then the disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, “It is the Lord!” As soon as Simon Peter heard him say, “It is the Lord,” he wrapped his outer garment around him (for he had taken it off) and jumped into the water. The other disciples followed in the boat, towing the net full of fish, for they were not far from shore, about a hundred yards. When they landed, they saw a fire of burning coals there with fish on it, and some bread. 10 Jesus said to them, “Bring some of the fish you have just caught.”11 So Simon Peter climbed back into the boat and dragged the net ashore. It was full of large fish, 153, but even with so many the net was not torn. 12 Jesus said to them, “Come and have breakfast.” None of the disciples dared ask him, “Who are you?” They knew it was the Lord.13 Jesus came, took the bread and gave it to them, and did the same with the fish. 14 This was now the third time Jesus appeared to his disciples after he was raised from the dead. 15 When they had finished eating, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?” “Yes, Lord,” he said, “you know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Feed my lambs.” 16 Again Jesus said, “Simon son of John, do you love me?” He answered, “Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Take care of my sheep.” 17 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. 18 Very truly I tell you, when you were younger you dressed yourself and went where you wanted; but when you are old you will stretch out your hands, and someone else will dress you and lead you where you do not want to go.” 19 Jesus said this to indicate the kind of death by which Peter would glorify God. Then he said to him, “Follow me!” 20 Peter turned and saw that the disciple whom Jesus loved was following them. (This was the one who had leaned back against Jesus at the supper and had said, “Lord, who is going to betray you?”) 21 When Peter saw him, he asked, “Lord, what about him?” 22 Jesus answered, “If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you? You must follow me.” 23 Because of this, the rumor spread among the believers that this disciple would not die. But Jesus did not say that he would not die; he only said, “If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you?” 24 This is the disciple who testifies to these things and who wrote them down. We know that his testimony is true. 25 Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written.
这些事以后,耶稣在太巴列湖边又向门徒们显明了自己。他是这样显明自己的:当时,西门彼得、那叫迪杜马多马加利利迦拿拿旦业西庇太的两个儿子、还有他的另外两位门徒,正在一起。西门彼得对大家说:“我去打鱼。” 他们说:“我们也和你一起去。”他们就出去,上了船。可是那一夜,他们什么也没有捕到。天快亮的时候,耶稣站在岸上,只是门徒们没有认出他就是耶稣。耶稣对他们说:“孩子们,你们没有鱼吧?” 他们回答:“没有。”耶稣说:“你们把网撒在船的右边,就会捕到。”他们就把网撒下,竟拉不上来,因为鱼很多。 耶稣所爱的那门徒对彼得说:“那是主!” 当时,西门彼得赤着身子,一听说是主,就把外衣系上,跳进湖里。 其他在船上的门徒,拖着满网的鱼过来了。他们离岸不远,约有九十公尺。 他们一上岸,就看见有一堆炭火,上面放着鱼,还有饼。10 耶稣说:“把你们刚捕到的鱼,拿几条过来。” 11 西门彼得就上去,把网拖到岸上,满网大鱼,共一百五十三条。虽然有这么多鱼,网却没有撑破。12 耶稣对他们说:“来吃早饭吧。”但没有一个门徒敢问他:“你是谁?”因为他们知道是主。 13 耶稣过来,拿起饼分给他们,把鱼也如此分了。14 耶稣从死人中复活后,这已经是他第三次向门徒们显现了。15 大家吃完早饭后,耶稣就问西门彼得:“约翰的儿子西门,你爱我胜过这些吗?” 彼得说:“是的,主啊!你知道我喜爱你。” 耶稣对他说:“喂养我的小羊。” 16 耶稣第二次又问他:“约翰的儿子西门,你爱我吗?” 彼得回答说:“是的,主啊!你知道我喜爱你。” 耶稣对他说:“牧养我的羊。” 17 耶稣第三次问他:“约翰的儿子西门,你喜爱我吗?” 彼得感到忧伤,因为耶稣第三次是对他说:“你喜爱我吗?”彼得说:“主啊,你知道一切,你知道我喜爱你。” 耶稣对他说:“喂养我的羊。 18 我确确实实地告诉你:你年轻的时候,自己束上腰带,到你愿意去的地方;但你年老的时候,要伸出双手,别人要把你束上,带你到不愿意去的地方。” 19 耶稣说这话,是指彼得将会以怎样的死来荣耀神。说了这话,耶稣对他说:“你跟从我!” 20 彼得转过身来,看见耶稣所爱的那门徒跟着走。他就是晚餐时贴近耶稣,问“主啊,出卖你的是谁”的那个门徒。 21 彼得看见他,就问耶稣:“主啊,那么,这个人会怎么样呢?” 22 耶稣说:“就算我愿意他一直留到我来的时候,这与你有什么关系?你跟从我!” 23 于是在弟兄中传出了这样一种说法:“那门徒不会死。”其实耶稣并没有说他不会死,而是说:“就算我愿意他一直留到我来的时候,这与你有什么关系?” 24 正是这个门徒,为这些事做见证,并记下了这些事,而且我们知道他的见证是真实的。 25 耶稣所行的事,另外还有很多。如果把它们一一记载下来,我想,所写出来的书,连整个世界也容纳不下了。

Jesus appeared once again and we see Him first as a stranger, then as Master, Host, Shepherd and Lord.
