This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

Was come (γενομένης)

The best texts read the present participle, γινομένης, is coming. Rev., when day was now breaking. The A.V. does not agree so well with the fact that Jesus was not at once recognized by the disciples, owing in part, perhaps, to the imperfect light.

On the shore (εἰς τὸν αἰγιαλόν)

Rev., beach. See on Mat 13:2. The preposition εἰς, to, makes the phrase equivalent to “Jesus came to the beach and stood there.”
