Luke 10:18

Context
10:18 So 1  he said to them, “I saw 2  Satan fall 3  like lightning 4  from heaven.

1 tn Here δέ (de) has been translated as “so” to indicate that Jesus’ reply in vv. 18-20 follows from the positive report of the messengers in v. 17.

2 tn This is an imperfect tense verb.

3 tn In Greek, this is a participle and comes at the end of the verse, making it somewhat emphatic.

4 tn This is probably best taken as allusion to Isa 14:12; the phrase in common is ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ (ek tou ouranou). These exorcisms in Jesus’ name are a picture of Satan’s greater defeat at Jesus’ hands (D. L. Bock, Luke [BECNT], 2:1006-7).
