Correcting a False Report

Tools specific to Jhn 21:20

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 21:20

So Peter turned around and saw the disciple Jesus loved following them. That disciple was the one who had leaned back against Jesus at the supper and asked, “Lord, who is the one that’s going to betray You? ”

Tools specific to Jhn 21:21

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 21:21

When Peter saw him, he said to Jesus, “Lord — what about him? ”

The Sea of Galilee; Sea of Tiberias is used only in John; Jn 6:1,23
Lit Children
Lit they cast
Lit he girded his garment
Lit about 200 cubits
The other two are in Jn 20:19-29.
Lit was revealed (v. 1)
Other mss read Simon, son of Jonah ; Mt 16:17; Jn 1:42
Two synonyms are translated love in this conversation: agapao, the first 2 times by Jesus (vv. 15-16); and phileo, the last time by Jesus (v. 17) and all 3 times by Peter (vv. 15-17). Peter’s threefold confession of love for Jesus corresponds to his earlier threefold denial of Jesus; Jn 18:15-18,25-27.
Jesus predicts that Peter would be martyred. Church tradition says that Peter was crucified upside down.
Lit this word
The word brothers refers to the late first century Christian community.
