Jesus turns things round. While they were looking for fish - the disciples, particularly Peter, having gone out fishing, - the risen Jesus became the chef and then, of course, after the meal, Jesus said to Simon “Simon, son of John” Notice that he doesn’t give him any title. He doesn’t call him 'Peter' which means that he is no longer being referred to as the rock, and Jesus asks him about his love.
At this site we were able to go down right beside the lake and put our hand in the lake. We were also able to go into the little chapel there which has a rock in it which is reputedly the table that they used for that particular breakfast. There is also a statue commemorating the conversation between Jesus and Simon.
