Scripture Reading for
The Lectionary According to the Common Calendar
1 After these things Jesus showed Himself again to the disciples at the Sea of Tiberias, and in this way showed He Himself: 2 There were together Simon Peter, and Thomas called Didymus, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two other of His disciples. 3 Simon Peter said unto them, "I am going fishing." They said unto him, "We also go with thee." They went forth and entered into a boat immediately; and that night they caught nothing. 4 But when the morning had now come, Jesus stood on the shore, but the disciples knew not that it was Jesus. 5 Then Jesus said unto them,
And they answered Him, "No." 6 And He said unto them,
They cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it in for the multitude of fishes. 7 Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved said unto Peter, "It is the Lord!" Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he girded his fisher's coat unto him (for he was naked) and cast himself into the sea. 8 And the other disciples came in a little boat (for they were not far from land, but, as it were, two hundred cubits), dragging the net with fishes.
9 As soon then as they had come to land, they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid thereon and bread. 10 Jesus said unto them,
11 Simon Peter went up and drew the net to land, full of great fishes, a hundred and fifty three; and though there were so many, yet the net was not broken.
12 Jesus said unto them,
And none of the disciples dared ask Him, "Who art Thou?" knowing that it was the Lord. 13 Jesus then came and took bread and gave it to them, and fish likewise. 14 This is now the third time that Jesus showed Himself to His disciples after He was risen from the dead.
1 And he showed me a pure river of the Water of Life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. 2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, there was the Tree of Life, which bore twelve kinds of fruit and yielded her fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. 3 And there shall be no more curse, but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His servants shall serve Him. 4 And they shall see His face, and His name shall be in their foreheads. 5 And there shall be no night there, and they will need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light. And they shall reign for ever and ever.
6 And he said unto me, "These sayings are faithful and true," and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent His angel to show unto His servants the things which must shortly be done.
Blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book.
8 And I, John, saw these things and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel who showed me these things. 9 Then said he unto me, "See that thou do it not, for I am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them that keep the sayings of this book. Worship God!"
