John 21 - the Fishy Part

Imagine I'm a really good cartoonist. Okay, now imagine I just drew Jesus sitting in his robe by a fire, next to a big net full of fish. And he holds up a fishbone he's just picked clean, points at the net and looks at Peter. And the caption says, "Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these?"

I won't argue for it, but I'd bet even money that's what he was saying. It gets even fishier if you transliterate from the Greek, "Simon, son of Jonah..." (half joking about that last bit, but only half).
