My Talk at Primacy of Peter: Understanding John 21 and Jesus’ Appearance at the Sea of Galilee

by Steve Ray on April 2, 2016

Since we are at the Primacy of St. Peter today along the shore of Galilee, I thought I would share my teaching that I give all our pilgrims at this site. It is an explanation of St. John 21 where Jesus appoints Peter to be the shepherd of his sheep.

But there is much more here. What does the net, the 153 fish, the shoreline and the water represent? Did you know that Jesus and Peter used two different Greek words for “LOVE” in their dialog – but there is only one word used in English? Why couldn’t Peter say he really loved Jesus but was only his good friend.

This is a sample of the teaching I give at the holy sites in the Holy Land and I hope you enjoy what our group is listening to today :-)

My brother in Christ,
Another great video teaching moment. I love hearing how deep into the Scripture, Tradition and history you go to get the point across to us. Excellent!
Thank you for serving our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ

I love this talk. My wife and I had the great Blessing to hear it live and on location while on pilgrimage last November…I tear up every time! Thanks Steve!
