John 21


John 21:2

Simon Peter, and Thomas called Didymus, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two others of His disciples were together.

Didymus means “the Twin.” Thomas had a sibling about whom we know nothing.

Cana of Galilee; see entry for John 2:1.


John 21:7

Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, “It is the Lord.” So when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he put his outer garment on (for he was stripped for work), and threw himself into the sea.

The disciple Jesus loved was John; see entry for John 13:23.
