Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Peter 1:14

_ _ shortly I must put offGreek, “the putting off (as a garment) of my tabernacle is speedy”: implying a soon approaching, and also a sudden death (as a violent death is). Christ’s words, John 21:18, John 21:19, “When thou art old,” etc., were the ground of his “knowing,” now that he was old, that his foretold martyrdom was near. Compare as to Paul, 2 Timothy 4:6. Though a violent death, he calls it a “departure” (Greek for “decease,” 2 Peter 1:15), compare Acts 7:60.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Peter 1:12-15.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Peter 1:14

Even as the Lord Jesus showed me — In the manner which had foretold, John 21:18, &c. It is not improbable, he had also showed him that the time was now drawing nigh.
