When I first came across this verse, the last phrase stood out for me, as in, what is its role. It seems redundant in that it partially repeats the info from the first half of the verse. It seems somewhat of a literary device rather than adding information.
My initial thoughts are to understand it as a separate sentence which introduces the next block of text i.e. Maybe even as "Now this is how he revealed himself:" or "He revealed himself in this way:"
Other translations, however, join the two phrases. But the resulting English feels awkward to me.Μετὰ ταῦτα ἐφανέρωσεν ἑαυτὸν πάλιν ὁ Ἰησοῦς τοῖς μαθηταῖς ἐπὶ τῆς θαλάσσης τῆς Τιβεριάδος· ἐφανέρωσεν δὲ οὕτως
Perhaps there is really not enough of a difference to nitpick, Am I making too much of this? I guess I wonder if someone with more experience cares to comment on how they understand this Greek?
Here are the two ways bibles tend to translate this verse for reference:
After this Jesus revealed himself again to the disciples by the Sea of Tiberias. Now this is how he did so. (NET)
Later, Jesus appeared again to the disciples beside the Sea of Galilee. This is how it happened. (NLT)
After these things Jesus manifested Himself again to the disciples at the Sea of Tiberias, and He manifested Himself in this way. (NASB)
After this Jesus revealed himself again to the disciples by the Sea of Tiberias, and he revealed himself in this way. (ESV)
