Robertson's Word Pictures of the New TestamentJohn 21:1
- Manifested himself (epanerosen eauton).
- First aorist active indicative of panerow with the reflexive pronoun (cf. 7:4; 13:4). For the passive see 1:31; 21:14. Jesus was only seen during the forty days now and then (Acts 1:3), ten instances being recorded. The word panerow is often used of Christ on earth (John 1:31; 2:11; 1 Peter 1:20; 1 John 1:2), of his works (John 3:5), of the second coming (1 John 2:28), of Christ in glory (Colossians 3:4; 1 John 3:2).
- At (epi).
- By or upon.
- Of Tiberias (thv Tiberiadov).
- As in 6:1 instead of the usual "Sea of Galilee." Tiberias, the capital city of Galilee, gave this epithet to the Sea of Galilee. This is not the appearance in Galilee prearranged by Jesus (Mark 16:7; Matthew 28:7,16).
