Jesus Asked, “Do You Love Me?”

So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter,
“Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou Me more than these?”
He saith unto Him, “Yea, Lord; Thou knowest that I love Thee.” He saith unto him,
“Feed My lambs.”
He saith to him again the second time,
“Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou Me?”
He saith unto Him, “Yea, Lord; Thou knowest that I love Thee.” He saith unto him,
“Feed My sheep.”
He saith unto him the third time,
“Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou Me?”
Peter was grieved because He said unto him the third time, “Lovest thou Me?” And he said unto Him, “Lord, Thou knowest all things; Thou knowest that I love Thee.” Jesus saith unto him,
“Feed My sheep.
Verily, verily, I say unto thee, When thou wast young, thou girdedst thyself, and walkedst whither thou wouldest: but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee, and carry thee whither thou wouldest not.”

This spake He, signifying by what death he should glorify God. And when He had spoken this, He saith unto him,
“Follow Me.” John 21:15-19
