“Knowing that shortly I must put off this my tabernacle, even as our Lord Jesus Christ hath shewed me.”
King James Version (KJV)
1:14 Even as the Lord Jesus showed me - In the manner which had foretold, #John 21:18|, &c. It is not improbable, he had also showed him that the time was now drawing nigh.
2Pe 1:14 Knowing that shortly I must put off [this] my tabernacle. Must die very soon. Even as our Lord Jesus Christ hath shewed me. Christ had predicted his death as a martyr (Joh 21:18,19). It is to this prediction that Peter refers.
