Jesus had just told Peter to “Follow me” when Peter looked back and saw the Apostle John following along. When he enquired of Jesus, he was told “If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? Follow thou me.” Somehow word got out that John would not die, but this is not what Jesus said, “If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee?” John did die, of course, the only apostle said to die by natural death. However, like his Old Testament counterpart Daniel, John was kept alive to receive the prophetic vision, to witness the unfolding of historic events, including the return of the Lord and to record them. His tarrying, so to speak, let him be present to see and record God’s Great Plan.
