Treasury of Scripture

So they ran both together: and the other disciple did outrun Peter, and came first to the sepulcher.

outrun.

Leviticus 13:30
Then the priest shall see the plague: and, behold, if it be in sight deeper than the skin; and there be in it a yellow thin hair; then the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is a dry scall, even a leprosy upon the head or beard.

1 Corinthians 9:24
Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.









(4) So they ran both together: and the other disciple did outrun Peter.--This is simply the result of the greater activity of John, who was probably younger than his companion. The thought that love outran doubt or fear, which has often been connected with the words, is not in harmony with the context, for "Peter therefore went forth" as soon as he heard Mary's words (John 20:3); and Peter it was who first entered into the sepulchre (John 20:6).
