John 21:15-21:23
Key Verse: 21:15

1. What happened in the previous passage? (21:1-14) Read verse 15. When they had finished eating, what did Jesus say to Simon Peter? Why do you think Jesus asked this question? How did Peter respond to it? What direction did Jesus give him? Why?

2. Read verses 16 and 17. Why did Jesus ask the same sort of question three times? How is it different at each time? Why was Peter hurt after the third time? Why did Jesus repeatedly give him the same direction? Yet how is it different?

3. What is the connection between verse 17 and verses 18-19? What does Jesus teach Peter here? What should be Peter’s ultimate life direction? (20-23)
