"WHAT IS THAT TO THEE?"

When Peter inquired of Christ Jesus concerning the future of John, the beloved disciple, the answer was (John 21:22), "What is that to thee? follow thou me."

Was it a form of fear which manifested itself in jealousy, or was it morbid curiosity which the Way-shower detected and rebuked?" Whatever it was, that Peter accepted the rebuke and corrected his thinking is obvious from the record of his subsequent unselfed work for the cause of Christianity.
