Luke 1:69

Context

1:69 For 1  he has raised up 2  a horn of salvation 3  for us in the house of his servant David, 4 

Luke 1:71

Context

1:71 that we should be saved 5  from our enemies, 6 

and from the hand of all who hate us.

Luke 1:77

Context

1:77 to give his people knowledge of salvation 7  through the forgiveness 8  of their sins.

1 tn Grk “and,” but specifying the reason for the praise in the psalm.

2 sn The phrase raised up means for God to bring someone significant onto the scene of history.

3 sn The horn of salvation is a figure that refers to the power of Messiah and his ability to protect, as the horn refers to what an animal uses to attack and defend (Ps 75:4-5, 10; 148:14; 2 Sam 22:3). Thus the meaning of the figure is “a powerful savior.”

4 sn In the house of his servant David is a reference to Messiah’s Davidic descent. Zechariah is more interested in Jesus than his own son John at this point.

5 tn Grk “from long ago, salvation.”

6 sn The theme of being saved from our enemies is like the release Jesus preached in Luke 4:18-19. Luke’s narrative shows that one of the enemies in view is Satan and his cohorts, with the grip they have on humanity.

7 sn John’s role, to give his people knowledge of salvation, is similar to that of Jesus (Luke 3:1-14; 5:31-32).

8 sn Forgiveness is another major Lukan theme (Luke 4:18; 24:47; Acts 10:37).
