7 Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved, saith unto Peter, It is the Lord. Now, when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, 31 But these are written, that he girt his fisher's coat unto him,

14 This is now the third time, that Jesus shewed himself to his disciples, after that he was risen from the dead.
