That I will put away
My body soon.
Has made it clear
εἰδὼς ὅτι ταχινή ἐστιν ἡ ἀπόθεσις τοῦ σκηνώματός μου, καθὼς καὶ ὁ Κύριος ἡμῶν Ἰησοῦς Χριστὸς ἐδήλωσέν μοι·
This author said, “I know (εἰδὼς) that I will put away (ἐστιν ἡ ἀπόθεσις) my body (τοῦ σκηνώματός μου) soon (ὅτι ταχινή). Indeed (καθὼς), Our Lord (καὶ ὁ Κύριος ἡμῶν), Jesus Christ (Ἰησοῦς Χριστὸς), has made clear it (ἐδήλωσέν) to me (μοι).” Among the canonical Greek New Testament writings, this is the only time that this word appeared in 2 Peter, ταχινή, that means swift, quick, or impending. This author indicated that our Lord Jesus Christ had made it perfectly clear to him that he would have to put away his human tabernacle or his earthly tent body soon. He was going to die in the near future because Jesus had told him so. Do you have any idea when you will die?
