“Lord, what about him?”

Jesus answered, “If I want him to live until I come back, that is not your business. You follow me.”

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.”

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.

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.” – John 21:21-25

If he’s here, today, having somehow escaped his martyrdom, that’d mean he’s lived nearly two millennia.

You may not have lived two millennia but are you really living until Jesus comes back?

“A thief comes to steal and kill and destroy, but I came to give life–life in all its fullness.” – John 10:10

What about you?
