Primacy of Peter

Today was one of the special moments on our trip. The Church of the Primacy is located by The Sea of Galilee where tradition states that Jesus originally called Peter to follow him. Tom Hayes, our bus mentor, was teaching on John 21:15-19 where Jesus restores Peter. As he was sharing The Word to us, a small row boat appeared at the shore almost on cue, with this local fisherman working working his nets on the shallow close to us. I was reminded of the earlier verses in John 21:6 “And He said to them, Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and you will find some. So they cast, and now they were not able to draw it in because of the multitude of fish.” I thought, I bet Peter was a lot like this man. What a way for scripture to come alive!
