The lectionary gospel reading for Easter 3 is John 21.1–19. It is a long reading, full of fascinating things to reflect on, including whether the number 153 means anything, and if there is any significance to the different words Jesus uses for ‘love’.
James and Ian reflect on these issues and their implication for reading and preaching.
