A. Jesus calls Peter to follow him (15-19) 耶稣呼召彼得跟随他(15-19)

How did Jesus use the fact that Peter had denied him three times?
What did Jesus mean when He told Peter: “Feed my lambs?”(Verse 15)

What did Jesus prove to Peter as he gave him three commands to take care of his flock?
Jesus reinstated Peter. But what did Jesus make clear would one day happen to Peter?
To hear that he would have to die a martyr’s death could have caused Peter to have second thoughts about doing Jesus’ work. News of having to suffer in the name of Jesus might cause any Christian to think twice about following him. What did Jesus make clear to all his followers at the end of verse 19?

What does the author tell us about the things that Jesus did and the preserved, written record we have about Jesus?
