SEV Biblia, Chapter 21:8 Y los otros discípulos vinieron con el navío (porque no estaban lejos de tierra, sino como doscientos codos), trayendo la red de peces.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - John 21:8 Verse 8. Dragging the net] It is probable that this was that species of fishing in which the net was stretched from the shore out into the sea; the persons who were in the boat, and who shot the net, fetched a compass, and bringing in a hawser, which was attached to the other end of the net, those who were on shore helped them to drag it in. As the net was sunk with weights to the bottom, and the top floated on the water by corks, or pieces of light wood, all the fish that happened to come within the compass of the net were of course dragged to shore. The sovereign power of Christ had in this case miraculously collected the fish to that part where he ordered the disciples to cast the net.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 8. And the other disciples came in a little ship , etc.] The same that they were fishing in, in which they came to Christ as soon as they could, not choosing to expose themselves, as Peter did; nor was it proper that they should leave the ship, and, as it was, might have hands few enough to bring ship and net, so full of fish, safe to shore; and the rather, they did not think fit to do as he did, for they were not far from land, but, as it were, two hundred cubits ; which was about an hundred yards: dragging the net with fishes : towing the net full of fishes all along in the water, till they came to land; an emblem of laborious Gospel ministers, who being once embarked in the work of the ministry, continue in it to the end, notwithstanding all toil, labour, and difficulties that attend them; and will at last bring the souls with them they have been made useful to, with great satisfaction and joy, to their dear Lord and master.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-14 - Christ makes himself known to his people, usually in his ordinances but sometimes by his Spirit he visits them when employed in their business. It is good for the disciples of Christ to be together in common conversation, and common business. The hour for their enterin upon action was not come. They would help to maintain themselves, an not be burdensome to any. Christ's time of making himself known to his people, is when they are most at a loss. He knows the temporal wants of his people, and has promised them not only grace sufficient, but foo convenient. Divine Providence extends itself to things most minute, an those are happy who acknowledge God in all their ways. Those who ar humble, diligent, and patient, though their labours may be crossed shall be crowned; they sometimes live to see their affairs take a happ turn, after many struggles. And there is nothing lost by observin Christ's orders; it is casting the net on the right side of the ship Jesus manifests himself to his people by doing that for them which non else can do, and things which they looked not for. He would take car that those who left all for him, should not want any good thing. An latter favours are to bring to mind former favours, that eaten brea may not be forgotten. He whom Jesus loved was the first that said, It is the Lord. John had cleaved most closely to his Master in his sufferings, and knew him soonest. Peter was the most zealous, an reached Christ the first. How variously God dispenses his gifts, an what difference there may be between some believers and others in the way of their honouring Christ, yet they all may be accepted of him Others continue in the ship, drag the net, and bring the fish to shore and such persons ought not to be blamed as worldly; for they, in their places, are as truly serving Christ as the others. The Lord Jesus ha provision ready for them. We need not be curious in inquiring whenc this came; but we may be comforted at Christ's care for his disciples Although there were so many, and such great fishes, yet they lost none nor damaged their net. The net of the gospel has enclosed multitudes yet it is as strong as ever to bring souls to God.
