Luke 10:22-23

Context
10:22 All things have been given to me by my Father. 1  No one knows who the Son is except the Father, or who the Father is except the Son and anyone to whom the Son decides 2  to reveal him.”

10:23 Then 3  Jesus 4  turned 5  to his 6  disciples and said privately, “Blessed 7  are the eyes that see what you see!

1 sn This verse has been noted for its conceptual similarity to teaching in John’s Gospel (10:15; 17:2). The authority of the Son and the Father are totally intertwined.

2 tn Or “wishes”; or “intends”; or “plans” (cf. BDAG 182 s.v. βούλομαι 2.b). Here it is the Son who has sovereignty.

3 tn Here καί (kai) has been translated as “then” to indicate the implied sequence of events within the narrative.

4 tn Grk “he”; the referent (Jesus) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

5 tn Grk “turning to the disciples, he said.” The participle στραφείς (strafei") has been translated as a finite verb due to requirements of contemporary English style.

6 tn Grk “the”; in context the article is used as a possessive pronoun (ExSyn 215).

7 sn This beatitude highlights the great honor bestowed on the disciples to share in this salvation, as v. 20 also noted. See also Luke 2:30.
