Luke 21:12

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.

Luke 21:16-17

Context
21:16 You will be betrayed even by parents, 5  brothers, relatives, 6  and friends, and they will have some of you put to death. 21:17 You will be hated by everyone because of my name. 7 

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 sn To confess Christ might well mean rejection by one’s own family, even by parents.

6 tn Grk “and brothers and relatives,” but καί (kai) has not been translated twice here since English normally uses a coordinating conjunction only between the last two elements in a series of three or more.

7 sn See Luke 6:22, 27; 1 Cor 1:25-31.
