And he was seen many days
Forty days, at certain times,
of them which came up with him from Galilee;
which though true of several women who followed him from Galilee, and to whom he appeared after his resurrection, as Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James and Joses, and Salome the mother of Zebedee's children, and others; yet is chiefly to be understood of the apostles of Christ, who were Galilaeans, and came with Christ from that country to Jerusalem, when he came thither to suffer and die:
who are his witnesses unto the people;
not only of his resurrection, though of that chiefly, but of all that he did and suffered in Galilee and Judea.
