“Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them.”
King James Version (KJV)
28:16 To the mountain where Jesus had appointed them - This was probably Mount Tabor, where, (it is commonly supposed,) he had been before transfigured. It seems to have been here also, that he appeared to above five hundred brethren at once.
Mt 28:16 The eleven disciples went away into Galilee. The time when they went to Galilee is not stated, though we learn from Joh 20:26 that they remained in Judea for over a week after the resurrection. Of the appearances in Galilee we have three accounts: the brief one here, which describes the official meeting of the Lord with the entire body of disciples: the one by the sea, described in Joh 21:1, and the reference by Paul in 1Co 15:6. The eleven went into Galilee because the Lord had commanded them to do so. Into a mountain where Jesus had appointed. The Revised Version says, "the mountain", which is correct. The Lord had named the mountain where he should meet them, and had probably also appointed the time. The object of the appointment was probably to secure a general meeting of his disciples.
