The Examination Of Peter - John 21:15-19

Most do not like tests or examinations.  Examinations come in all varieties. There were the infamous pop-quizzes in high school and the dreaded mid-terms and finals in college.  There were some examinations that many were more eager to take such as the driving exam to get your license.  After Jesus and the disciples enjoy a breakfast by the sea, Jesus comes to Peter and gives him an examination.  Although this examination was not easy for Peter, it was done in love and with the purpose of restoring Peter.  We will examine three simple questions of the examination.  We must remember the flesh is weak, but Jesus will restore us when we fail.
