    Peter and John were Jesus' best friends. They were at the transfiguration and James the brother of John was there too (see Mark 9 / Matthew 17). Also, they were both especially chosen for mighty works. Peter was the first one to preach after the 120 waited in the upper room for 10 days and received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues. Soon after that they came out and were heard by many who were from other countries who were there visiting that day. The people started asking questions and wondered if the disciples were drunk, and that gave Peter a reason to speak and explain what was going on and to invite others to be saved. 3000 were saved that day. This was the start of the early church. Peter was a bold witness and a very strong one at that. He also wrote I & II Peter, and John wrote John, I, II & III John and Revelation.

    There are many things about Peter and John that cannot be said quickly. Read the gospels. Peter denied Christ 3 times, which Jesus had told him he would do, but went out and wept bitterly and was forgiven, and then Jesus told him three times to feed his sheep (John 21:15-23).

    Peter and John were two of the twelve apostles (Mark 1:16-17) that were ordained by Jesus Christ to help run his church (Luke 6:12-16, Ephesians 2:20).

    In their early normal lives, Peter and John were fisherman. Until one day after witnessing a miracle, they were convinced that Jesus Christ was the Messiah, and eagerly dropped all their things to follow him (Matthew 4:18-22).

    Jesus Christ called twelve men called apostles to help organize his church, giving them all power and authority to do mighty miracles and preach his gospel (Matthew 10)

    Peter, James and John were given special powers by Jesus that the other apostles didn't yet have.

    Peter especially was given priesthood keys that allowed them (the apostles) to bind and seal things on Earth and in Heaven (Matthew 16:19) this officially made him (Peter) the leading apostle when Jesus Christ was killed.

    Peter ran the church after Christ died, but the people hated the Apostles just like they hated Jesus Christ. And one by one all (with the exception of John) were killed as Jesus predicted would happen to them, Peter included (John 21:18-19, Matthew 24:9, Fox's The Book of Martyrs)

    John still lives to this day, continuing the Lord's work, as this scripture suggests (John 21:22-23)

    John is the Apostle who wrote The Gospel of John, The Epistles of John and Revelations in The Bible. He is NOT John the Baptist, as many people confuse him with

    in all likelihood, Peter Tobin may were about 21 on the time of the first homicide attributed to bible john. Similarities between Tobin's police mugshot from that era and the photofit artist's impact of Bible John advance the argument. also compelling is that Tobin moved remote from Glasgow in 1969 that may account for the cessation of the killings.

    Peter and John are both among the original Twelve Apostles of Jesus Christ.

    Peter's name is mentioned over 160 times in the New Testament. John's name perhaps 50 times.

    John wrote th Gospel of John and the Three Letters of John and The Revelation. Peter wrote two letters (First Peter and Second Peter)

    They were two of the 12 apostles of Jesus--the word apostle means, 'one send forth'. They were send forth by the Lord Jesus to go and preach the good news of the kingdom of Yahweh God (and that is not "christianity"), which means, the "door" are now open to all you comes to faith in the Son of God, to be born again, to enter the kingdom of God, with a new life.
