Jesus Reinstates Peter
The disciples dragged the boat ashore and brought some of the fish for the fire. They ate hungrily, tearing the cooked fish into strips with their fingers and swallowing the hot pieces hastily. After the meal Jesus put a hand on Peter’s shoulder.

Jesus: Let’s go for a walk Peter.

Peter: What about the others?

Jesus: Just you and me.

Peter: It might not be safe for just the two of us.

Jesus: Peter – you’re a giant fisherman and I’m fresh back from the dead, I think we’ll be all right. Come on.

They walked in awkward silence for a while, Peter glancing back and wringing his large, battered hands.

Jesus: Simon.

Peter: Simon? You haven’t called me that since we first met.

Jesus: Simon, listen to me. A lot has happened in these past days. Do you love me? More than the others, I mean?

Peter: Yes Lord. You know that. You know everything.

Jesus: Then I want to you to do something for me.

Peter: Anything, Lord.

Jesus: Take care of my lambs.
