Unremitting Joy – 39

Very truly, I tell you, when you were younger, you used to fasten your own belt and to go wherever you wished. But when you grow old, you will stretch out your hands, and someone else will fasten a belt around you and take you where you do not wish to go.’  (He said this to indicate the kind of death by which he would glorify God.) After this he said to him, ‘Follow me.’

John 21:18-1935 Tie your belt

This verse has always passed me by before, of course I must have read it, but I don’t remember it.  Straight away I had the idea of making Peter’s belt into a kind of Celtic Knot.  While this interpretation is a belt and does have ends the traditional quality of a Celtic Knot is that their is no end, echoing Jesus’ gift of everlasting life.
