Luke 3:2

Context
3:2 during the high priesthood 1  of Annas and Caiaphas, the word 2  of God came to John the son of Zechariah in the wilderness. 3 

1 sn Use of the singular high priesthood to mention two figures is unusual but accurate, since Annas was the key priest from a.d. 6-15 and then his relatives were chosen for many of the next several years. After two brief tenures by others, his son-in-law Caiaphas came to power and stayed there until a.d. 36.

2 tn The term translated “word” here is not λόγος (logos) but ῥῆμα (rJhma), and thus could refer to the call of the Lord to John to begin ministry.

3 tn Or “desert.”
