John 21 • 10/20/15

       Agape, translated as "love: the highest form of love, especially brotherly love; the love of God for man and of man for God” “unconditional love”

     Phileo, translated as "Philia, often translated "brotherly love, friendship or affection"     

     Jesus was most likely reconciling Peter to Himself and reestablishing Peter’s leadership position among the apostles.

    Jesus probably asked Peter 3 times because Peter had denied knowing Jesus 3 times.  (John 18.15-27) 

     The admonition in John 21.22 ends with "…you follow Me” i.e. don’t be overly concerned with another’s faith walk just follow Jesus.
