Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 346

  1. Jesus came, took the bread and gave it to them, and did the same with the fish (John 21:13).

More bread…more fish. No, this isn’t just evidence of the typical dietary realities of their culture. Surely on some level this is a reminder of other moments. Already he had redirected their nets, like he did when they first abandoned their boats. Now, he presents already-prepared bread and fish from an unknown source, much as He had done on more than one hillside. I have what you need, He might as well have said. No one asked Jesus where He got His fish. They didn’t need to. He clearly knew where every fish in that great sea could be found, and if that proved insufficient, He could produce them in an instant. This is a scene of sufficiency. He always has enough because He always is enough.
