A Response to Trinitarians on John 21:17

When Trinitarians are faced with Mark 13:32 “But of that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone.” they will recklessly throw out John 21:17 where we read, “He said to him the third time, “Simon, son of John, do you love Me?” Peter was grieved because He said to him the third time, “Do you love Me?” And he said to Him, “Lord, You know all things; You know that I love You.” Jesus said to him, “Tend My sheep.” 

Citing Peter’s statement to Yeshua, You know all things, does not delete Mark 13:32. Was Peter suggesting that Yeshua was omniscient? This would make a mockery of Sacred Scripture. 1 John 2:20 states “But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things.” Can I also recklessly throw out this passage and suggest regenerated human beings are also omniscient? I think not. The same language is used in Rom. 15:14 and 1 Cor. 1:5. So what did Peter mean? Well, the passage doesn’t go into much detail. From what we know about Yeshua the spirit was given to him without measure, John 3:34, the same spirit John tells us gives us all knowledge in 1 John 2:20. Yeshua being the representative of Elohim on Earth, John 5:43, Heb. 1:3, and filled with the Spirit beyond measure, John 3:34, was a perfect man Heb. 2:10.
