ContextJesus and the Beloved Apostle
20Then Peter, turning about, sees the disciple whom Jesus loved following; which also leaned on his breast at supper, and said, Lord, which is he that betrays you? 21Peter seeing him said to Jesus, Lord, and what shall this man do? 22Jesus said to him, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to you? follow you me. 23Then went this saying abroad among the brothers, that that disciple should not die: yet Jesus said not to him, He shall not die; but, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to you? 24This is the disciple which testifies of these things, and wrote these things: and we know that his testimony is true. 25And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen.
