John 21



Other Authors
Verse 1

At the Sea of Tiberias; in Galilee, and thus we find that, after all the exciting scenes of the life, death, and resurrection, of the Savior were passed these disciple return to their old home, and their early occupations. It was however, only for a very brief season; for they were back to Jerusalem again, where they remained until they were endued with power from on high, to preach the gospel.

John 21:4-8. It is remarkable that a circumstance very similar to this is recorded Luke 5:4-8, as occurring at an early part of our Savior's ministry.

Verse 5

Meat; food.

Verse 11

Drew; that is, with the help of the others.

Verse 20

The disciple whom Jesus loved; John, the author of this Gospel.
