What will be Satan’s fate?

2 Thessalonians 2:8-9  
And then shall that Wicked (will) be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders.


Revelation 20:2-3  
And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, and cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal on him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.  


Revelation 20:7-10  
And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison and shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.


Matthew 25:41  
…Depart from me, you cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:

What does the Bible tell us about Satan?

Revelation 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceives the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

Revelation 12:4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars (angels) of heaven, and did cast them to the earth:

 

1 John 3:8

…for the devil sinned from the beginning…

 

In Luke 10:18 Jesus said, “I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.”

 

Isaiah 14:12-16

How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning!

how you are cut down to the ground, which did weaken the nations!

For you have said in your heart, I will ascend into heaven,

I will exalt my throne above the stars of God:

I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:

I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.

Yet you shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.

They that see you shall narrowly look on you, and consider you, saying,

Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms;

 

Ezekiel 28:11-19

Moreover the word of the Lord came to me, saying, Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say to him, Thus says the Lord God;

You seal up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty.

You have been in Eden the garden of God;

Every precious stone was your covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold:

The workmanship of your tabrets and of your pipes was prepared in you in the day that you were created.

You are the anointed cherub that covers; and I have set you so:

You were on the holy mountain of God;

You have walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.

You were perfect in your ways from the day that you were created, till iniquity was found in you. By the multitude of your merchandise they have filled the midst of you with violence, and you have sinned:

Therefore I will cast you as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy you, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.

Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty, you have corrupted your wisdom by reason of your brightness: I will cast you to the ground, I will lay you before kings, that they may behold you.

You have defiled your sanctuaries by the multitude of your iniquities, by the iniquity of your traffic; Therefore I will bring forth a fire from the midst of you, it shall devour you, and I will bring you to ashes on the earth in the sight of all them that behold you. All they that know you among the people shall be astonished at you: you shall be a terror, and you shall never be any more.

 

In Genesis 3:1-6 Satan tempts Eve.

Vs 13-15 …And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat. And the Lord God said to the serpent, Because you have done this, you are cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; on your belly you shall go, and you shall eat dust all the days of your life: And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed; it shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel.

Acts 16:20 And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly.

In Job 1:6-12 and 2:1-7, we see Satan in the presence of the Lord.

Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan came also among them. (1:6 and again in 2:1) I God and Satan discussed Job. In 1:10 Satan says God has put a hedge (of protection) around Job. “Have you not made a hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he has on every side?”

Job 1:7 (and again in 2:2) is a revealing statement:

And the Lord said to Satan, Where do you come from? And Satan answered the Lord, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.

 

2 Peter 5:8

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walks about, seeking whom he may devour:

 

Jude 1:9

Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke you.

 

1 Chronicles 21:1

And Satan stood up against Israel and provoked David to number (count HCSB) Israel.

 

Zechariah 3:1-2

And he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the Lord, and Satan standing at his right hand to resist him. And the Lord said to Satan, The Lord rebuke you, O Satan; even the Lord that has chosen Jerusalem rebuke you…

 

Hebrews 2:14

Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he (Christ) also took part of the same (became flesh); that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;

 

We see Satan tempting Jesus in Matthew 4 and Luke 4

During this time, Satan shows Jesus “all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said to him, All this power will I give you, and the glory of them: FOR THAT IS DELIVERED TO ME; AND TO WHOMEVER I WILL I GIVE IT.” Luke 4:5-6 (we don’t know if this is true since Satan is speaking, and we know that he is a liar.)

 

John 8:44

You are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

 

However do we know that Satan is the “god of this world” for a season.

2 Corinthians 4:4

In whom the god of this world has blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

While tempting Jesus, the devil quoted scripture. Luke 4:9-11 (also Matthew 4:5-6) And he (the devil) brought him (Jesus) to Jerusalem, and set him on a pinnacle of the temple, and said to him, If you are the Son of God, cast yourself down from here: For it is written, He shall give his angels charge over you, to keep you: And in their hands, they shall bear you up, lest at any time you dash your foot against a stone.

 

Jesus told the parable of the sower in Mark 4:3-8. Shortly after, he explained the parable to the twelve apostles. (Mark 4:14-20) And these are they by the way side, where the word is sown; but when they have heard, Satan comes immediately, and takes away the word that was sown in their hearts. Mark 4:15 (lest they should believe and be saved Luke 8:12)

 

In Matthew 13:37-39, Jesus explains the parable of the wheat and the tares.

…He that sows the good seed is the Son of man; The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; The enemy that sowed them is the devil;

In Luke 13:11-16, Jesus saw “a woman who had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bowed together, and could in no wise lift up herself.” He healed her. And “when the ruler of the synagogue answered with indignation, because Jesus had healed on the sabbath day,” Jesus answered “…ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan has bound, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the sabbath day?”

In Matthew 16:23, Jesus called Peter Satan, saying “Get behind me, Satan: you are an offence to me: for you savor not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.”

Later Jesus tells Peter, “Simon, Simon, behold, Satan has desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat:” in Luke 22:31.

 

John 13:2

And supper being ended, the devil having now put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, to betray him (Jesus);

 

In Acts 5:3 Peter said to Ananias, “why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land?”

 

In Acts 10:38 Peter speaks to Cornelius and his family and friends about “How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.”

In Acts 13:10 Paul said to Elymas the sorcerer, “O full of all subtilty and all mischief, you child of the devil, you enemy of all righteousness, will you not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord?”

In Acts 26:18 Paul told of his experience on the road to Damascus. Jesus told Paul, “unto whom (the Gentiles) now I send thee, To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me”

When writing of our need to forgive others, Paul wrote in 2 Corinthians 2:11, “Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.”

In 1 Corinthian 7:5, Paul wrote to couples. “Defraud not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that you may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency.” Paul meant “Do not deprive one another sexually — except when you agree for a time, to devote yourselves to prayer. Then come together again; otherwise, Satan may tempt you because of your lack of self-control.” (HCSB)

 

2 Corinthians 1:11-12

For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

 

In 2 Corinthians 12:7 Paul wrote, “And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure.”

In 1 Thessalonians 2:18 Paul wrote: …we would have come unto you, even I Paul, once and again; but Satan hindered us.

 

In the epistles we are given some instructions in regard to the devil.

Ephesians 4:27 Neither give place to the devil.

 

Ephesians 6:11,16

Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. …Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith you shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

 

1 Timothy 3:6-7 regarding a bishop, Paul wrote:

Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil. Moreover he must have a good report of them which are outside the faith; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.

 

2 Timothy 2:25-26

In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God perhaps will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth; And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.

 

James 4:7

Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

 

1 John 3:8,10

He that commits sin is of the devil; for the devil sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. …In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whoever does not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loves not his brother.

 

In Revelation 12:10, Satan is called “the accuser of our brethren.”

He Is Risen

Matthew 28:1-15, Mark 16:1-11, Luke 24:1-12 and John 20:1-18 

Mark 16:1-3

When the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint the body of Jesus.

Mark 16:9 tells us that Jesus “appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils.”

To the list of women present, Luke adds Joanna “and other women that were with them.” He says they brought “the spices which they had prepared.”

And very early in the morning the first day of the week, they came to the sepulchre at the rising of the sun.

John says “while it was yet dark”

The women (among themselves): Who shall roll away the stone from the door of the sepulchre for us?

Matthew 28:2-4

And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat on it. His face was like lightning, and his garment white as snow: And the keepers did shake for fear of him and became as dead men.

Mark 16:4 And when the women looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away: for it was very great.

John 20:2

Then Mary Magdalene ran and came to Simon Peter and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved (John described himself in this way).

Mary Magdalene: They have taken away the Lord out of the sepulchre, and we don’t know where they have laid him.

Matthew 28:5-7

Angel: Fear not: for I know that you seek Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. And go quickly, and tell his disciples (Mark adds “and Peter”) that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goes before you into Galilee; there you shall see him: lo, I have told you.

Luke 24:3-8

And the women entered the sepulchre and did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. As they were much perplexed thereabout, two men stood by them in shining garments: And they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth.

Mark says, “they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a long white garment; and they were frightened.”

The two: Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spoke to you when he was yet in Galilee, Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and rise again the third day.

And they remembered his words.

Matthew says, “And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word.”

Mark adds, “they did not say any thing to any man; for they were afraid.”

John 20:3-17

Peter and John therefore went forth and came to the tomb. They both ran together, but John outran Peter and came to the tomb first.

John, stooping down and looking in, saw the linen clothes lying; yet he did not go in.

Then Simon Peter, following him, came and went into the tomb, and saw the linen clothes lie and the napkin, that was about his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself.

Luke tells us that Peter was “wondering in himself at that which was come to pass.

Then John, who came to the tomb first, went in also, and he saw, and believed.

For as yet they did not know the scripture, that he must rise again from the dead.

Then the disciples went away again unto their own home.

But Mary Magdalene stood outside at the tomb weeping. As she wept, she stooped down and looked into the tomb and saw two angels in white sitting, the one at the head and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain.

Angels: Woman, why do you weep?

Mary: Because they have taken away my Lord, and I don’t know where they have laid him.

And when she had said this, she turned herself back and saw Jesus standing there and didn’t know that it was Jesus.

Jesus: Woman, why do you weep? Whom do you seek?

Mary (supposing him to be the gardener): Sir, if you have carried him from here, tell me where you have laid him, and I will take him away.

Jesus: Mary.

Mary turned.

Mary: Rabboni (which is to say, Master).

Jesus: Do not touch me; for I have not yet ascended to my Father. Go to my brethren, and say to them, I ascend to my Father and your Father; and to my God and your God.

Matthew 28:9-15

And as the women went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them.

Jesus: All hail.

And they came and held him by the feet and worshipped him.

Jesus: Do not be afraid: go tell my brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me.

Now when they were going, behold, some of the watch came into the city, and showed to the chief priests all the things that were done. And when they were assembled with the elders, and had taken counsel, they gave large amounts money to the soldiers.

Chief priests: Say, His disciples came by night and stole him away while we slept. And if this comes to the governor’s ears, we will persuade him and secure you.

So the soldiers took the money, and did as they were told: and this saying is commonly reported among the Jews until this day.

Luke 24:9-11

The women returned from the tomb, and told all these things to the eleven and to all the rest.

Mark adds, Mary “went and told them that had been with him, as they mourned and wept.”

It was Mary Magdalene, and Joanna, and Mary the mother of James, and other women that were with them, who told these things to the apostles.

And their words seemed to them as idle tales, and they did not believed them.

Jesus Died On the Cross

Matthew 27:32-56, Mark 15:21-41, Luke 23:26-49 and John 19:17-37 

Luke 23:26-34  
As they led Jesus away, they laid hold on one Simon, a Cyrenian, coming out of the country, and on him they laid the cross, that he might bear it after Jesus.

Mark tells us that Simon is “the father of Alexander and Rufus.”

And there followed him a great company of people, and of women, which also bewailed and lamented him.

Jesus (turning to them): Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children. For, behold, the days are coming, in the which they shall say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the paps which never gave suck. Then they shall begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us; and to the hills, Cover us. For if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry?

Two malefactors were led with Jesus to be put to death. When they came to the place, which is called Calvary (John adds “the place of the skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha”), they crucified him and the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the other on the left.

John says “and Jesus in the middle.”

Mark adds some details:

And it was the third hour.

And the scripture was fulfilled, which says, And he was numbered with the transgressors.

And they gave him wine mingled with myrrh to drink: but he received it not.

Jesus: Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.

John 19:19-24
Pilate wrote a title and put it on the cross: JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE JEWS. This title was written in Hebrew, Greek, and Latin. It was read by many Jews: for the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city.

The chief priests (to Pilate) Do not write, The King of the Jews; but that he said, I am King of the Jews.

Pilate: What I have written I have written.

When the soldiers had crucified Jesus, they took his garments and made four parts, to each soldier a part. Jesus also had a coat which had no seam, woven from the top throughout.

The soldiers (among themselves): Let’s not tear the coat but cast lots for it to decide whose it shall be.

That the scripture might be fulfilled, which says, They parted my raiment among them, and for my vesture they did cast lots. (Psalms 22:18)

Therefore the soldiers did these things.

Matthew adds, “And sitting down they watched him there.”

Mark 15:29-31  
Those who passed by railed on him, shaking their heads.

Those who passed: Ah, you who destroys the temple and builds it in three days, save yourself, and (“if you are the Son of God” – Matthew) come down from the cross.

Luke adds, “And the people stood beholding.”

The chief priests also mocked Jesus among themselves with the scribes (Matthew adds, “and elders”).

The chief priests: He saved others; he cannot save himself.

Luke says “let him save himself, if he is Christ, the chosen of God.”

Matthew 27:42-43  

The chief priests (continued): If he is (“Christ” – Mark) the King of Israel, let him come down from the cross now, and we will believe him. He trusted in God; let God deliver him now, if he will have him: for he said, I am the Son of God.  

John 19:25-27  
There stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas and Mary Magdalene.

Jesus saw his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing by.

Jesus (to his mother): Woman, behold your son!

Jesus (to the disciple): Behold your mother!

And from that hour that disciple took her to his own home.

Luke 23:36-37  
The soldiers also mocked Jesus, coming to him and offering him vinegar.

The soldiers: If you are the king of the Jews, save yourself.

Luke 23:39-43  
And one of the malefactors who were hanged railed on him, saying, If you are Christ, save yourself and us.

The other malefactors (rebuked): Don’t you fear God, seeing you are in the same condemnation? And we indeed are condemned justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man has done nothing amiss.

Only Luke records the difference in the attitude of the two. Matthew says the thieves who were crucified with Jesus cast the same in his teeth. Mark says they who were crucified with Jesus reviled him.

The second (to Jesus): Lord, remember me when you come into your kingdom.

Jesus: Truly, today you shall be with me in paradise.

Matthew 27:45-49 
There was darkness over all the land from the sixth hour to the ninth hour. And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice. 

Jesus: Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?

(that is to say, My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?)

Some of them who stood there heard Jesus speak.

Those who heard: This man calls for Elijah.

One of them ran, and took a sponge, and filled it with vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink.

The rest: Let be, let us see whether Elijah will come to save him.

John 19:28-30  
Jesus knew that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled.

Jesus: I thirst.

Now there was set a vessel full of vinegar: and they filled a sponge with vinegar, and put it upon hyssop, and put it to his mouth.

Jesus received the vinegar.

Jesus: It is finished.

Luke 23:46  
Jesus cried with a loud voice.

Jesus: Father, into your hands I commend my spirit.

Having said this, Jesus (“bowed his head, and” – John) gave up the ghost.

Matthew 27:51-54 
And the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent; And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose and came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.

When the centurion (which stood over against him), and they who were with him watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly.

Centurion and those with him: Truly this was the Son of God.

Luke says “Now when the centurion saw what was done, he glorified God, saying, Certainly this was a righteous man.”

Luke 23:48-49  
And all the people who came together to that sight, beholding the things which were done, smote their breasts, and returned.

And all his acquaintance, and the women who followed him from Galilee, stood afar off, beholding these things.

Mark 15:40-41  
Among the women was Mary Magdalene, (“and the mother of Zebedee’s children” – Matthew) and Mary the mother of James the less and of Joses, and Salome; (Who also, when he was in Galilee, followed him, and ministered to him;) and many other women who came up with him to Jerusalem.

John 19:31-37  
The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation, that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the sabbath day, (for that sabbath day was an high day,) besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away.

Then the soldiers came and broke the legs of the first, and of the other who was crucified with him. But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead already, they did not break his legs.

But one of the soldiers pierced his side with a spear, and blood and water came out. And he that saw it bares record, and his record is true: and he knows that he speaks true, that you might believe. For these things were done, that the scripture should be fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be broken. (Psalm 34:20) And again another scripture says, They shall look on him whom they pierced. (Zechariah 12:10)

Do You Love Me?

 John 21:15-25 

Many sermons have been taught about this passage.

Jesus dined with some of the disciples by the Sea of Galilee, eating fish and bread. After they had eaten, Jesus spoke to Simon Peter.

Jesus: Simon, son of Jonas, do you love me more than these? 

Peter: Yes, Lord; you know that I love you. 

Jesus: Feed my lambs. 

Jesus (the second time): Simon, son of Jonas, do you love me? 

Peter: Yes, Lord; you know that I love you. 

Jesus: Feed my sheep.

Jesus (the third time): Simon, son of Jonas, do you love me? 

Peter was grieved because Jesus said to him the third time, Do you love me? 

Peter: Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you. 

Jesus: Feed my sheep. Truly, when you were young, you dressed yourself, and walked where you would go: but when you shall be old, you shall stretch forth your hands and another shall dress you and carry you where you would not go.

This Jesus spoke, signifying by what death Peter should glorify God. 

Jesus: Follow me. 

Turning around, Peter saw John following, who had leaned on Jesus’ breast at the last supper and asked, Lord, who is he that betrays you? 

Peter (to Jesus): Lord, and what shall John do? 

Jesus: If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to you? Follow me. 

Then this saying went abroad among the brethren, that John should not die. Yet Jesus did not say to Peter, “He shall not die” but “If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to you?”

John is the disciple who testifies of these things and wrote these things: and we know that his testimony is true. 

And there are also many other things which Jesus did. If every one should be written, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen.

The Miracle of the Fish 

John 21:1-14 

Jesus showed himself again to the disciples at the sea of Tiberias.

The Sea of Tiberias is another name for the Sea of Galilee. 

Simon Peter, Thomas called Didymus, Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, the sons of Zebedee and two other of his disciples were together there. 

Simon Peter: I go a fishing.

The other disciples (to Peter): We go with you also. 

They went forth and entered into a ship immediately; and that night they caught nothing. When the morning was come, Jesus stood on the shore, but the disciples did not know that it was Jesus. 

Jesus: Children, do you have any meat? 

The disciples: No. 

Jesus: Cast the net on the right side of the ship, and you shall find fish. 

They cast the net and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes. 

John (to Peter): It is the Lord. 

Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he put on his fisher’s coat (for he was naked) and cast himself into the sea. 

“Naked” may mean Peter’s chest was bare or merely that he didn’t have on his outer garment.

The other disciples came in a little ship dragging the net with fish. They were not far from land, about 100 yards.

As soon then as they came to land, they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid on it, and bread. 

Jesus: Bring of the fish which you have now caught.

Simon Peter went up and drew the net to land. The net was full of 153 great fish. For all there were so many, yet the net was not broken. 

Jesus: Come and dine. 

None of the disciples dared ask him, Who are you? knowing that it was the Lord. 

Then Jesus came and took bread and gave it to them, and fish also. 

This is the third time that Jesus showed himself to his disciples after he was risen from the dead.
