I am actually shocked right now because it's so obvious that not noticing before is embarrassing. And I am not even a Christian.
But I will prove forthwith what I said is true.
"Jesus and Peter"
When they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter," Simon son of John
, do you love me more than these?
" He said to him,
"Yes lord; you know that I love you
Jesus said to him, ''Feed my lambs."
16. A second time he said to him, "Simon, son of John, do you love me?"
He said to him, "Yes, lord; you know that I love you."
said to him, "Tend my sheep."
17. Be said to him the third time, Simon, son of John, do you love me?"
Peter felt hurt because of the third time, "Do you love me?" And he said to him, "Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you." Jesus said to
him, "Feed my sheep."
18. Very truly I tell you when you were younger, you used to fasten your own belt and to go wherever you wished. But when you grow old you WILL
STRETCH OUT YOUR HANDS
, and someone else will fasten a belt around you and take you where you do not wish to go."
19. And he said this to indicate the kind of death by which he would glorify God. After this he said to him "Follow me."
Can we all agree on a few things real quick?
Simon Peter was son of Jonah, not John, Yonah and Yohann aren't that close to where scribal error can be blamed in an inspired text, in the NRSV which
tells me the MS. tradition is unanimous on this as they point out when it isn't.
That this must be explained.
3 times asking Peter "Do you love me" is not for no reason and the reason (at least give me that it's plausible) is the 3 denials of Peter are called
attention to by this.
That Peter's crucifixion is prophecied is actually in the text, that it's never noticed or at least discussed but ''stretch out your arms" "fasten a
belt around you and take you..." is describing his upside down crucifixion.
"Jesus and the beloved disciple."
20. Peter turned and saw the beloved disciple whom Jesus loved following them; he was the one who had reclined next to Jesus at the supper and had
said, "Lord, who is it that is going to betray you?"
THAT WAS PETER!!!!
John 13:21 ...."Very truly I tell you, one will betray me." 22. The disciples looked around at one another, uncertain of whom he was speaking. 23. One
of his disciples---the one whom Jesus loved----was reclining next to him;...
Simon Peter therefore motioned to him to ask Jesus of whom he was speaking.
"...disciple he whom Jesus loved....; he was the one that said "Lord, who is it that is going to betray you." (as just quoted in full above)
Ok. That's proof. And I don't mean to be arrogant but if nobody can prove that I am not the first person to figure this out, I am. I don't doubt
someone else has but damn Christians you've been saying forever John was the beloved disciple, Gospel of John.
The whole time Peter revealed to you he wrote it and nobody knows?
24.This IS THE DISCIPLE WHO IS TESTIFYING TO THESE THINGS AND HAS WRITTEN THEM, AND WE KNOW THAT 'HIS' TESTIMONY IS TRUE.
He said it in the third person but there is absolutely no doubt he is saying he is the beloved disciple, that's Peter, and that was the least cryptic
thing he just did.
Proven by the fact that nobody noticed for 2,000 years apparently until today.
I would be relieved to find out I didn't just figure this out first, I really would.
Really Christians???? It's not that cryptic! I know someone who didn't pay attention will argue otherwise but I will not entertain such absurd denials
of clearly written statements, even if it is cryptic it's not complex, he factually stated his identity and both clearly and in riddles.
