Title: Liebe und Freundschaft im Johannesevangelium
Subtitle: Zum alttestamentlichen Hintergrund von Joh 21,15-19
Author(s): BÖHLER, Dieter
Volume: 96 Issue: 4 Date: 2015
This article argues that Jesus' threefold question to Peter in John 21,15-17 is not the same question posed three times but, rather, three different questions of which only the last one gets a clear 'Yes'. Jesus asks Peter if by now he had reached that love which is ready to give one's life for a friend. In John 13,37 Peter had professed loudmouthed that he was ready. In John 21,15-17 he acknowledges that he is not ready yet.
