Notes for my writing

This blog is made up of notes on the gospel as found in the only true and living church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This includes notes that are either excerpts from or ideas for books I either have in draft or may yet write.

Apparently most of the twelve were there when Christ asked Peter "lovest thou mee" three times

Hmmmm... not important, but my mental picture of the story in which Christ says "Lovest thou me" three times to Peter has always involved Peter, John, and maybe James. Yet it sounds like it was really 7 of the apostles and we only get direct conversation that involves Christ and Peter and an indirect reference to John.
John 21:1 After these things Jesus shewed himself again to the disciples at the sea of Tiberias; and on this wise shewed he himself.
2 There were together Simon Peter, and Thomas called Didymus, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two other of his disciples.
3 Simon Peter saith unto them, I go a fishing. They say unto him, We also go with thee. They went forth, and entered into a ship immediately; and that night they caught nothing.
