Luke 12:50

Context
12:50 I have a baptism 1  to undergo, 2  and how distressed I am until it is finished!

Luke 22:37

Context
22:37 For I tell you that this scripture must be 3  fulfilled in me, ‘And he was counted with the transgressors.’ 4  For what is written about me is being fulfilled.” 5 

1 sn The figure of the baptism is variously interpreted, as some see a reference (1) to martyrdom or (2) to inundation with God’s judgment. The OT background, however, suggests the latter sense: Jesus is about to be uniquely inundated with God’s judgment as he is rejected, persecuted, and killed (Ps 18:4, 16; 42:7; 69:1-2; Isa 8:7-8; 30:27-28; Jonah 2:3-6).

2 tn Grk “to be baptized with.”

3 sn This scripture must be fulfilled in me. The statement again reflects the divine necessity of God’s plan. See 4:43-44.

4 tn Or “with the lawless.”

sn This is a quotation from Isa 53:12. It highlights a theme of Luke 22-23. Though completely innocent, Jesus dies as if he were a criminal.

5 tn Grk “is having its fulfillment.”
