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 ''a disciple":

    I have enjoyed reading your comments throughout this forum as I continue to read God's Word. Thanks, keep up the good work.

    Mark; "just what is going on here? About knowing and not knowing???" That's a keen observation; and something hardly anyone seems to consider! But the matter of how and to whom the Lord reveals Himself; (even while He's standing right in front of them!); speaks to 'how' and 'to whom' He finds us when He comes. Ordinary circumstances should not be despised; and we should KNOW that "It is the Lord."

    " the disciples didn't know that it was JESUS"" yet the disciple that Jesus loved told Simon Peter that it was the LORD" THEN THE DISCIPLES CAME TO SHORE AND DID NOT QUESTION HIM BECAUSE THEY KNEW IT WAS THE LORD"
    just what is going on here? About knowing and not knowing???

    John 21:12 Jesus saith unto them, Come and dine. And none of the disciples durst ask him, Who art thou? knowing that it was the Lord. One day we will have a glorified body like Jesus and be also able to eat fish.
