Luke 24:25

Context
24:25 So 1  he said to them, “You 2  foolish people 3  – how slow of heart 4  to believe 5  all that the prophets have spoken!

Luke 24:39-41

Context
24:39 Look at my hands and my feet; it’s me! 6  Touch me and see; a ghost 7  does not have flesh and bones like you see I have.” 24:40 When he had said this, he showed them his hands and his feet. 8  24:41 And while they still could not believe it 9  (because of their joy) and were amazed, 10  he said to them, “Do you have anything here to eat?” 11 

1 tn Here καί (kai) has been translated as “so” to indicate the implied result of the disciples’ inability to believe in Jesus’ resurrection.

2 tn Grk “O,” an interjection used both in address and emotion (BDAG 1101 s.v. 1).

3 tn The word “people” is not in the Greek text, but is supplied to complete the interjection.

4 sn The rebuke is for failure to believe the promise of scripture, a theme that will appear in vv. 43-47 as well.

5 tn On the syntax of this infinitival construction, see BDAG 364-65 s.v. ἐπί 6.b.

6 tn Grk “that it is I myself.”

7 tn See tc note on “ghost” in v. 37.

8 tc Some Western mss (D it) lack 24:40. However, it is present in all other mss, including Ì75, and should thus be regarded as an original part of Luke’s Gospel.

9 sn They still could not believe it. Is this a continued statement of unbelief? Or is it a rhetorical expression of their amazement? They are being moved to faith, so a rhetorical force is more likely here.

10 sn Amazement is the common response to unusual activity: 1:63; 2:18; 4:22; 7:9; 8:25; 9:43; 11:14; 20:26.

11 sn Do you have anything here to eat? Eating would remove the idea that a phantom was present. Angelic spirits refused a meal in Jdt 13:16 and Tob 12:19, but accepted it in Gen 18:8; 19:3 and Tob 6:6.
