John 21:14 (King James Version)
This is now the third time that Jesus shewed himself to his disciples, after that he was risen from the dead.
- the third time
- Or, as some read, the third day. On the day the Saviour rose he appeared five times; the second day was that day se'nnight; and this was the third day--or this was his third appearance to any considerable number of his disciples together. Though he had appeared to Mary, to the women, to the two disciples, to Cephas--yet he had but twice appeared to a company of them together.
