TSNTyndale Study Notes:

21:1-25 This final chapter adds an account about the resurrected Jesus in Galilee (21:1-14) and records the exchange between Peter and Jesus concerning Peter’s love (21:15-23). The chapter ends by summarizing the authority and importance of John’s eyewitness report (21:24-25).

TTNTyndale Theme Notes:

Fishing in Galilee

Jesus’ knowledge of fishing is evident throughout the four Gospels. The fishing trade provided Jesus with raw materials for parables (Matt 7:10; 13:47-51) as well as a job description for his apostles (“to fish for people,” Matt 4:19). In John 21, Jesus uses fishing to reveal himself to his apostles following his resurrection.

Commercial fishermen in ancient Galilee fished exclusively with nets. Three types of nets were in use:

The drag net was the most ancient kind of net. A wall-like net with weights on the bottom and cork floats on the top was first pulled along the coast. Then the lead rope was swept across the sea by boat and pulled back to shore. The drag net pulled in many fish that could not be eaten under Jewish law. The fish were sorted, the good kept, and the bad thrown out. Jesus used the image of the drag net to describe the day of judgment (Matt 13:47-51).

The cast net was circular and measured fifteen to twenty feet across. It had lead weights attached to its edges and was tossed into the sea by a lone fisherman. It landed, sank, and caught unwary fish. The fisherman then dove into the water and either pulled the fish out individually or gathered the net and lifted it into the boat. Simon and Andrew were using cast nets when Jesus called them (Matt 4:18-20; Mark 1:16-18).

The trammel net, the only type still used today, is a compound net built from three layers of net. The two outer nets are identical and have wide openings while the inner net is finely meshed and loose, flowing easily in and out of the outer nets. The net is spread in the water in a long line, usually at night, and held while other fishermen scare the fish toward it. The fish enter the first outer net easily, push against the fine mesh inner net and then carry the fine net into the second outer net, entangling themselves hopelessly. The net is then hauled ashore, the fish are disentangled and sorted, and the many breaks in the net are repaired. When Jesus called James and John to follow him, they were repairing their trammel nets (Matt 4:18-22; Mark 1:19-20).

When Jesus instructed Simon to let down his net again after fishing all night, a miraculous catch of fish convicted Simon (Luke 5:1-11). A similar event occurred in John 21:1-11 when Simon Peter returned from a fruitless night and Jesus told him to throw out his net once more. Peter likely grabbed a cast net, which was then filled with so many fish it was difficult to haul in.

Passages for Further Study
