After - Day 21

End of Week Three

The following is a guide to help facilitate discussion. Feel free to add or subtract or change questions to fit the conversation, and pray for the Spirit to lead in all things.

Think about and share a time when you had a family reunion or you reunited with some dear loved ones. What were those moments like for you?

Read John 21:1-25 together and share any wisdom, insights, or questions in response to the reading. 

What do you imagine was happening in the disciples' heads/hearts that led them to fall back on “fishing”?

What’s your best guess for what the disciples may have talked about as they fished (and caught nothing!) all night?

If you were one of the disciples in the boat that morning, what would your reaction be if you saw Jesus on the shore?

Why do you think the disciples didn't recognize Jesus when he was on the beach? They had already seen him post-resurrection, so why didn’t they know it was him?

What was at the heart of Jesus’ questioning of Peter? How is the tri-fold reinstatement important to their story?

Where do you think Peter was going with his question about John (the disciple Jesus loved)? What was at the heart of the issue we find revealed in Jesus’ response (v.22)? 

Have you ever compared yourself to someone else and wondered why their life was so different from yours? What impact did that have on you and God's purpose in your life?

Have you ever messed up really badly? Without going into too much detail, share with the group what you learned about God in that experience.

How can you extend grace to someone in your life this week that may have messed up or done something wrong? 


“Follow me!”
- Jesus
