Luke 21:12-13

Context
21:12 But before all this, 1  they will seize 2  you and persecute you, handing you over to the synagogues 3  and prisons. You 4  will be brought before kings and governors because of my name. 21:13 This will be a time for you to serve as witnesses. 5 

1 sn But before all this. Another note of timing is present, this one especially important in understanding the sequence in the discourse. Before the things noted in vv. 8-11 are the events of vv. 12-19.

2 tn Grk “will lay their hands on you.”

3 sn Some of the persecution is of Jewish origin (the synagogues). Some fulfillment of this can be seen in Acts. See the note on synagogues in 4:15.

4 tn Because of the length and complexity of the Greek sentence, a new sentence was started here in the translation.

5 tn Grk “This will turn out to you for [a] testimony.”
