Luke 1:60

Context
1:60 But 1  his mother replied, 2  “No! He must be named 3  John.” 4 

1 tn Grk “And,” but with clearly contrastive emphasis in context.

2 tn Grk “his mother answering, said.” The combination of participle and finite verb is redundant in English and has been simplified to “replied” in the translation.

3 tn This future passive indicative verb has imperatival force and thus has been translated “he must be named.”

4 snNo! He must be named John.” By insisting on the name specified by the angel, Elizabeth (v. 60) and Zechariah (v. 63) have learned to obey God (see Luke 1:13).
