Lesson Review – John 21:1-14 – Another Miraculous Catch


Here are some review notes from this week’s lesson in our preschool and K-4 classes. This week we studied John 21:1-14 – Another Miraculous Catch.

This is lesson 41 of 78 in our study of the New Testament. This lesson corresponds with Story 119 in The Gospel Story Bible and with Week 41 of the Old Story New family devotional.

Gospel Truth for Today

After Jesus’ arrest, Peter denied knowing him three times. After his resurrection, Jesus found Peter and restored him. The good news is that Jesus is in the business of finding and restoring his people every day!

The Lesson In A Sentence (or Two)

After his resurrection, Jesus appeared to the disciples and performed a miracle similar to the one when he first called them. Also, Jesus talked to and restored Peter, telling him to “follow me” once again.

Questions For You Kids

What did the disciples do in this story? 

They went fishing but didn’t catch any fish.

As they came in from fishing, what did the man (Jesus) tell them to do? What happened?

He told them to cast their nets on the other side of the boat and they caught 153 fish.

How did they recognize Jesus?

Because Jesus did the same miracle when he called them to follow him the first time.

What did Jesus ask Peter 3 times?
He asked, “Do you love me?”

Why did he ask him 3 times?

He asked three times because that how many times Peter denied Jesus and Jesus was helping Peter face his sin (denying Jesus). Jesus then graciously told Peter to “follow me” just like he had done in the beginning. Jesus was forgiving and restoring Peter.

If Jesus asked you, “Do you love me” what would you say?
