We study the twisted knot module for the universal deformation of an SL2 -representation of a knot group and introduce an associated L-function, which may be seen as an analogue of the algebraic p-adic L-function associated to the Selmer module for the universal deformation of a Galois representation. We then investigate two problems proposed by Mazur: Firstly we show the torsion property of the twisted knot module over the universal deformation ring under certain conditions. Secondly we compute the L-function by some concrete examples for 2-bridge knots.
