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.

    To Corte on Judas - Matt.27:5

    So what happened to the disciple, which betrayed?

    Peters nakedness had to do with feeling the need to cover himself in the presence of the Lord because of his sin just like Adam hid himself in the presence of the Lord because his sin showed him that he was naked. Funny how people feel they need to cover their sin in the presence of the Lord but the Lord knows all things and we need to realize just like Peter, Lord you know all things.

    V. 6 - tells me - we can do nothing in the spiritual realm, i.e. reaching souls for Christ, which is our MAIN purpose in His life that is in us, without Him - Acts2:38 (v. 37, "what must we do?")

    To Pastor Troy - Why are you a pastor if you don't know the answer to Peter's nakedness.....? Anyway, it could be an allegory to his sin in denying Jesus 3 times; the sin made him naked .....? Just a stab in the dark. Maybe Peter's coat was his attempt to cover his own sin? OR - it could just be that it was summer and the nights were still hot. You sweat a lot in that work.
  • Pastor Troy
    Any idea why Peter was naked?
