#74 in the series "John: The Gospel OF Belief"
The last words of John's gospel deal predominantly with the two disciples, Peter and John. And there is a specific purpose tied to each. Peter is mentioned because it is in him we find demonstration of the kind of tenderness and restoring grace from Jesus John knows we are all going to repeatedly need. John is mentioned because of the rumor that circulated around his future. John wants his readers to understand the important distinction between the actual words of the Scriptural account and some of the traditions that arose out of those words. John records his personal story to underline the difference between the words of Scripture and the various traditions that can arise around them. The words are infallible. The traditions are not.
