Lovest Thou Me?
By Sharon Hardy Knotts
After His resurrection, Jesus appeared at Galilee where He caught His disciples red-handed going back to their old occupation of fishermen. They were back to fishing for fish when He had ordained them and trained them three years to fish for men!
Peter had failed the Lord during His arrest and trial, having denied Him three times, even after Jesus told him he would. Peter was full of self-boasting and declared he would never deny the Lord. Jesus had prayed for Peter and told him that when he was converted, to strengthen the brethren. But now Peter had given up on the ministry, and Jesus had to address him as the ringleader of the disciples' desertion. Three times Jesus probed Peter: "Lovest thou me?"
Each time Peter replied: "Yes, Lord I love you." But the third time Peter broke down and cried. Find out why Peter cried the third time by looking at the two different words in Greek that are translated love: AGAPE & PHILEO.
