Question: John 21:20-23: then peter turning about, seeth the disciple whom jesus loved, following(speaking of john), which also leaned on his breast at supper. and said "lord which is he that betrayeth thee?" peter seeing him saith to jesus "lord and what shall this man do?" jesus saith unto him "if i will, that he tarry till i come, what is that to thee? follow thou me" then went this saying abroad among the brethren, that that disciple should not die. yet jesus said not unto them he shall not die. "if i will that he tarry till i come what is that to thee?" i kinda gather that he didnt say that john wouldnt die but that he would "wait/wander" what context should i take that in?? wait or wander how?? @ chris: my question is what did he mean by "tarry" until i ruturn? @ goodboy: i thought the same thing as well until i bought a better bible, my dakes annotated bible says he was specifically talking about john and my apologies for the misprint...i got that part about jesus clarifying that he did not say that john would not die. @ chris' added part: yea i got that part..its in the question

He did not say that John would not die but IF He wanted John to live until His return, Peter did not need to worry about that. There were other matters at hand. i.e., do not worry about others, worry about yourself. Here's the New Century Version (NCV) John 21:20 Peter turned and saw that the follower Jesus loved was walking behind them. (This was the follower who had leaned against Jesus at the supper and had said, "Lord, who will turn against you?") 21 When Peter saw him behind them, he asked Jesus, "Lord, what about him?" 22 Jesus answered, "If I want him to live until I come back, that is not your business. You follow me." 23 So a story spread among the followers that this one would not die. But Jesus did not say he would not die. He only said, "If I want him to live until I come back, that is not your business." 24 That follower is the one who is telling these things and who has now written them down. We know that what he says is true. 25 There are many other things Jesus did. If every one of them were written down, I suppose the whole world would not be big enough for all the books that would be written.

Galatians 1 1Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but by Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised him from the dead;) 2And all the brethren which are with me, unto the churches of Galatia: 3Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ, 4Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father: 5To whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen. 6I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: 7Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. 8But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. 9As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. 10For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ. 11But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man. 12For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ. 13For ye have heard of my conversation in time past in the Jews' religion, how that beyond measure I persecuted the church of God, and wasted it: 14And profited in the Jews' religion above many my equals in mine own nation, being more exceedingly zealous of the traditions of my fathers. 15But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother's womb, and called me by his grace, 16To reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood:

Jesus reported dissimilar prophets. He never suggested that the Bible became into finished. the countless Bibles are collections of sacred writings made by employing adult adult males. The curses contained in the books of the Bible conceal the guy works, no longer the Bible as an entire -- otherwise we would ought to throw each little thing out after approximately Deuteronomy financial ruin 4. yet we've not extra any scriptures to the Bible. we like the King James Bible in simple terms as that's. Jesus has given humanity different sacred books, that's authentic, yet that's his organisation.

IN Jesus we do not die. So if Jesus tarry (prolongs it for some reason) it will not matter. For now matter how long Jesus takes, we do not die. We will live forever and ever. So Jesus' own do not die. We are going to live forever with Jesus. No death, we/they shall not die. Jesus says we sleep, not die. It will seem instant though. Live, sleep and rise to be with Jesus if not already living. For the end is nearer than many know or believe. bless you. Jesus also means he could keep him alive until Jesus returns. Either way we and they do not die. Oh death where is thoust sting.

It means that if old English was good enough for Jesus and the apostles then we need not learn Greek or Aramaic.

Brannon Originally Answered: How do these scripture prove the Trinity?
There is one God: Deuteronomy 6:4; 1 Corinthians 8:4; Galatians 3:20; 1 Timothy 2:5. The Trinity consists of three Persons: Genesis 1:1; 1:26; 3:22; 11:7; Isaiah 6:8; 48:16; 61:1; Matthew 3:16-17; Matt 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14. In the passages in the Old Testament, a knowledge of Hebrew is helpful. In Genesis 1:1, the plural noun "Elohim" is used. In Genesis 1:26; 3:22; 11:7 and Isaiah 6:8, the plural pronoun for "us" is used. Each member of the Trinity is God: The Father is God: John 6:27; Romans 1:7; 1 Peter 1:2. The Son is God: John 1:1, 14; Romans 9:5; Colossians 2:9; Hebrews 1:8; 1 John 5:20. The Holy Spirit is God: Acts 5:3-4; 1 Corinthians 3:16 (The One who indwells is the Holy Spirit - Romans 8:9; John 14:16-17; Acts 2:1-4). I have a bunch more references, but short and sweet is better and this is too long already.
