Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

John 21:7-11

_ _ that disciple whom Jesus loved, said, It is the Lord — again having the advantage of his brother in quickness of recognition (see on John 20:8), to be followed by an alacrity in Peter all his own.

_ _ he was naked — his vest only on, worn next the body.

_ _ cast himself into the sea — the shallow part, not more than a hundred yards from the water’s edge (John 21:8), not meaning therefore to swim, but to get sooner to Jesus than in the full boat which they could hardly draw to shore.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on John 21:1-14.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

John 21:7

Peter girt on his upper coat (for he was stript of it before) — Reverencing the presence of his Lord: and threw himself into the sea — To swim to him immediately. The love of Christ draws men through fire and water.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

John 21:7

Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved saith unto Peter, It is the Lord. Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he girt [his] fisher's (a) coat [unto him], (for he was naked,) and did cast himself into the sea.

(a) It was a linen garment which prevented him from swimming freely.
