Yea Lord is an original Fox and Pebble illustration by Malory Fiso

 

“I ask your indulgence as I take some nonscriptural liberty in my portrayal of this exchange. In effect, Peter said to his associates: “Brethren, it has been a glorious three years….We have talked with, prayed with, and labored with the very Son of God Himself. We have walked with Him and wept with Him….But that is over. He has finished His work….He has worked out His salvation and ours. So you ask, ‘What do we do now?’ I don’t know more to tell you than to return to your former life, rejoicing. I intend to ‘go a fishing.’ And at least six of the ten other remaining Apostles said in agreement, “We also go with thee.”

But, alas, the fishing wasn’t very good….they caught nothing-not a single fish. With the first rays of dawn, they disappointedly turned toward the shore, where they saw in the distance a figure who called out to them, ‘Children, have you caught anything?’ Glumly these Apostles-turned-again-fishermen gave the answer no fisherman wants to give. ‘We have caught nothing,’
‘Cast the net on the right side of the ship, and ye shall find’…. and “they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes.”

John said the obvious: “It is the Lord.” And over the edge of the boat, the irrepressible Peter leaped.

Looking at their battered little boats, their frayed nets, and a stunning pile of 153 fish, Jesus said to His senior Apostle, “Peter, do you love me more than you love all this?” Peter said, “Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee.”

The Savior responds…and says again, “Peter, do you love me?”…the great fisherman answers a second time, “Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee.”

….with relentless scrutiny He asks for the third time, “Peter, do you love me?”

Peter said for the third time, “Lord, … thou knowest that I love thee.”

To which Jesus responded (and here again I acknowledge my nonscriptural elaboration), perhaps saying something like: “Then Peter, why are you here? Why are we back on this same shore, by these same nets, having this same conversation? Wasn’t it obvious then and isn’t it obvious now that if I want fish, I can get fish?” Jeffrey R Holland
