Jesus and the Beloved Apostle

John 21

20 Peter turned and saw h the disciple whom Jesus loved following them, i the one who had been reclining at table close to him and had said, "Lord, who is it that is going to betray you?" 21 When Peter saw him, he said to Jesus, "Lord, what about this man?" 22 Jesus said to him, "If it is my will that he remain j until k I come, what is that to you? l You follow me!" 23 So the saying spread abroad among m the brothers 1 that this disciple was not to die; yet Jesus did not say to him that he was not to die, but, "If it is my will that he remain until I come, what is that to you?"

24 This is the disciple n who is bearing witness about these things, and who has written these things, and o we know p that his testimony is true.

25 Now q there are also many other things that Jesus did. Were every one of them to be written, I suppose that r the world itself could not contain the books that would be written.
