Bible: John 21:18-22

21:18 I tell you the solemn truth, 1  when you were young, you tied your clothes around you 2  and went wherever you wanted, but when you are old, you will stretch out your hands, and others will tie you up 3  and bring you where you do not want to go.” 21:19 (Now Jesus 4  said this to indicate clearly by what kind of death Peter 5  was going to glorify God.) 6  After he said this, Jesus told Peter, 7 Follow me.”

Peter and the Disciple Jesus Loved

21:20 Peter turned around and saw the disciple whom Jesus loved following them. 8  (This was the disciple 9  who had leaned back against Jesus’ 10  chest at the meal and asked, 11 Lord, who is the one who is going to betray you?”) 12  21:21 So when Peter saw him, 13  he asked Jesus, “Lord, what about him? 21:22 Jesus replied, 14 If I want him to live 15  until I come back, 16  what concern is that of yours? You follow me!
