John 21:1-17
RS 75-6


Now we come to the very last of the resurrection appearances. In some ways, John 21 is just filled with messages, filled with lessons, for how we’re supposed to live on earth until he comes back.

But in particular, there are four beautiful things we’re told here about the gospel, about the central message of who Jesus is, what he came to do, and how we should relate to him. We have here a great picture of the unity of the gospel, the forwardness of the gospel, the surgery of the gospel, and the intimacy of the gospel.

John 21:1–17

When Jesus appeared to his followers after coming back to life, as told in John 21, it’s a powerful story that shows us the importance of sharing our experiences. This story reminds us that everyone’s journey with Jesus is unique, but we’re all part of one big Christian family. It also shows us how knowing Jesus can really change our lives, teaching us to say sorry when we mess up and take responsibility for our actions.
