Bible Story: ‘Jesus restores Peter at the barbecue’ - sketchboard


"After breakfast, Jesus asked Peter "Do you love me best?"  "Yes, Lord, you know I love you" said Peter.  "Feed my lambs" said Jesus. 

Who do you think Jesus meant by his lambs? 

Then he asked again "Peter, do you truly love me?"  "You know I do" said Peter.  "Take care of my sheep" said Jesus. 

Bible story for children Jesus restores Peter at the barbecue to be used in a Sunday school lesson or kidmin

Who did he mean by his sheep?"  That's not very complimentary, is it, as sheep aren't known for being very intelligent, are they?  

Then a third time Jesus said "Peter, do you love me?"  Peter was a bit hurt about this.  ""Lord you know everything about me.  You know I am your friend."   Again, Jesus told him "Feed my sheep."  

That's a bit of a joke really, isn't it – here is Jesus, telling Peter, a fisherman, to act as a shepherd and feed sheep!   But it made sense to Peter when he thought about it..."



The restoration of Peter, Peter, do you really love me?, feed my lambs, always a new change with Jesus, God's grace
