Luke 4:26

Context
4:26 Yet 1  Elijah was sent to none of them, but only to a woman who was a widow at Zarephath in Sidon. 2 

1 tn Here καί (kai) has been translated as “yet” to indicate the contrast.

2 sn Zarephath in Sidon was Gentile territory (see 1 Kgs 17:9-24). Jesus’ point was that he would be forced to minister elsewhere, and the implication is that this ministry would ultimately extend (through the work of his followers) to those outside the nation.
