Luke 20:20

Paying Taxes to Caesar

20:20 Then 1  they watched him carefully and sent spies who pretended to be sincere. 2  They wanted to take advantage of what he might say 3  so that they could deliver him up to the authority and jurisdiction 4  of the governor.

Luke 22:24


22:24 A dispute also started 5  among them over which of them was to be regarded as the greatest. 6 

Luke 24:7

24:7 that 7  the Son of Man must be delivered 8  into the hands of sinful men, 9  and be crucified, 10  and on the third day rise again.” 11 

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

2 tn Grk “righteous,” but in this context the point is their false sincerity.

3 tn Grk “so that they might catch him in some word.”

4 tn This word is often translated “authority” in other contexts, but here, in combination with ἀρχή (arch), it refers to the domain or sphere of the governor’s rule (L&N 37.36).

5 tn Or “happened.”

6 tn Though the term μείζων (meizwn) here is comparative in form, it is superlative in sense (BDF §244).

7 tn Grk “saying that,” but this would be redundant in English. Although the translation represents this sentence as indirect discourse, the Greek could equally be taken as direct discourse: “Remember how he told you, while he was still in Galilee: ‘the Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and on the third day rise again.’”

8 tn See Luke 9:22, 44; 13:33.

9 tn Because in the historical context the individuals who were primarily responsible for the death of Jesus (the Jewish leadership in Jerusalem in Luke’s view [see Luke 9:22]) would have been men, the translation “sinful men” for ἀνθρώπων ἁμαρτωλῶν (anqrwpwn Jamartwlwn) is retained here.

10 sn See the note on crucify in 23:21.

11 tn Here the infinitive ἀναστῆναι (anasthnai) is active rather than passive.
