Peter warms himself next to two charcoal fires in the last chapters of John’s gospel: In the court of the high priest where he denied Jesus, and having breakfast with Jesus after the resurrection (read John 21:15-19).
Peter must have thought that glance across the courtyard was the last time he would see Jesus, but the resurrection is the good news of second chances. Jesus doesn’t stay dead, and Peter does not stay guilt ridden. Peter renounced his discipleship in the high priest’s courtyard, but at breakfast Jesus reinstates him.
Resurrection means another charcoal fire, a meal with Jesus, and reconciliation — for all of us.
