    Dear Brianna - I wasn't 'interpreting' scripture; it was just simply an interesting observation; I didn't 'change' any meanings.

    vs. 20-21
    This places great responsibility on Bible translators and teachers. We need to do our research and get God's thinking on the scriptures before we try to explain it. By doing research we will be able to give an accurate answer. We do not want to be interpreting the Bible based on our flawed human philosophy.

    I s'pose that this is appropo of - nothing, but I just noticed v. 14 - which harkens back to Jn. 21:19. 1 Pet. is yrs. later from Jn.21:19. I don't imagine Peter 'caught' Jesus' drift right at the time, but by now he's 'experienced' enough - he understands. It's beautiful how the Lord shows you things in His word. I'd never 'connected' these two before now.
