Luke 4:22

Context
4:22 All 1  were speaking well of him, and were amazed at the gracious words coming out of his mouth. They 2  said, “Isn’t this 3  Joseph’s son?”

1 tn Grk “And all.” Here καί (kai) has not been translated because of differences between Greek and English style.

2 tn Grk “And they.” Here καί (kai) has not been translated because of differences between Greek and English style.

3 sn The form of the question assumes a positive reply. It really amounts to an objection, as Jesus’ response in the next verses shows. Jesus spoke smoothly and impressively. He made a wonderful declaration, but could a local carpenter’s son make such an offer? That was their real question.
