THE GOSPEL OF JESUS THE CHRIST -- Matthew, Mark, Luke, John

CHAPTER 66
Jesus Commissions Peter


Sea of Galilee Shore Where Jesus Fed His Disciples Breakfast After His Resurrection

x 66-1Then when they had dined, Jesus said to Simon Peter, "Simon, son of Jonah, do you love me more than these?"
xxxx66-2He said to him, "Yes, Lord; you know that I love you."
xxxx66-3He said to him, "Feed my lambs."
xxxx66-4Again, he said to him [for] the second time, "Simon, son of Jonah, do you love me?"
xxxx66-5He said to him, "Yes, Lord; you know that I love you."
xxxx66-6He said to him, "Shepherd my sheep."
xxxx66-7He said to him [for] the third time, "Simon, son of Jonah, do you love me?"
xxxx66-8Peter was grieved because he said to him [for] the third time, "Do you love me?"
xxxx66-9And he said to him, "Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you."
xxxx66-10Jesus said to him, "Feed my sheep."
xxxx66-11"Most truly I say to you, 'When you were young, you clothed yourself and walked where you desired; but when you grow old, you will stretch out your hands and another will clothe you and carry you where you do not desire to go.'"
xxxx66-12This he spoke to signify by what death he would glorify God. 66-13When he had spoken this, he said to him, "Follow me."
xxxx66-14Then turning around, Peter saw the disciple whom Jesus loved following, who also leaned on his chest at supper and said, Lord, who is the one who will betray you? 66-15Seeing him, Peter said to Jesus, "Lord, and what will this man do?"
xxxx66-16Jesus said to him, "If I desire that he remains until I come, what is that to you? Follow me."
xxxx66-17Then this saying went abroad among the brothers that the same disciple should not die. 66-18Yet Jesus did not say to him, "He will not die," but, "If I desire that he remains until I come, what is that to you?"
xxxx66-19This is the disciple who testifies of these things and wrote these things; and we know that his testimony is true.

Jesus Returns to Jerusalem and Commissions His Followers

xxxx66-20Then Jesus spoke to them, saying, "All power is given to me in heaven and in earth. 66-21Therefore, go into all the world, preach the gospel to everyone, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 66-22teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you. 66-23The one who believes and is baptized will be saved; but the one who does not believe will be condemned.
xxxx66-24"And these signs will follow those who believe: In my name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; 66-25they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will not hurt them; 66-26they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.
xxxx66-27"And know this; I am sending the promise of my Father on you. But remain in the city of Jerusalem, until you are covered with power from on high.
xxxx66-28"And know I am present with you all the time, even to the completion of the age. Amen."

Jesus Ascends to the Father

Sun Over Mt. of Olives

xxxx66-29So then after the Lord had spoken to them, he led them out as far as to Bethany, and he lifted up his hands and blessed them. 66-30Now, it happened, while he blessed them, he was separated from them and carried up into heaven. Then [he] sat down at the right hand of God.

Disciples Worship and Preach the Gospel

xxxx66-31Then they worshipped him and returned to Jerusalem with great joy and were continually in the temple, praising and blessing God. 66-32Also, they went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the word with signs following.

This Is Written That You Might Believe
That Jesus Is the Christ and Have Life

xxxx66-33Now, many other things and signs Jesus did in the presence of his disciples that are not written in this book, which, if everyone should be written, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. 66-34But these are written that you might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you might have life through his name.

 xxAmen! Amen! Amen! Amen
