People's Bible Notes for John 21:24


Joh 21:24 We know that his testimony is true. Many suppose the last two verses were added by another hand than John's, perhaps by the elders of the church at Ephesus, where John wrote, who give their endorsement to his record.

Discussion for John 21

  • Wayne
    Didn't have anything to do with Peter being naked, as is being discussed.
  • Irene123
    Hi Wayne; what is your understanding of Deut.22:5? and no, I'm not going to 'come back at you' - whatever you say; I'm just interested
  • Wayne
    Stacey, it says he was naked and he put his clothes in before going ashore. Not room for a big theological reasoning or interpretation there. He just put on his clothes.Simple wording.
  • Wayne
    But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you. Matt. 6:33.

    Robt. Bomar - I just now read your post I LIKE IT!! I've been Jesus name for 50 yrs. There are, have been several of us on here. I love to see you guys.
  • Irene123
    Vs. 1-6; Here is another angle of these vs. that was taught on tonight at Bible study: Jesus spent 3 yrs. with the disciples, teaching them to catch men. After His crucifixion they were so discouraged - the actual fishermen went back 'into the world' of their old life, and worked ALL NIGHT and - caught nothing. Jesus came along and by obeying Him - they caught over 150! A GOOD lesson.
