Luke 4:30-31

4:30 But he passed through the crowd 1  and went on his way. 2 

Ministry in Capernaum

4:31 So 3  he went down to Capernaum, 4  a town 5  in Galilee, and on the Sabbath he began to teach the people. 6 

1 tn Grk “their midst.”

2 tn The verb πορεύομαι (poreuomai) in Luke often suggests divine direction, “to go in a led direction” (4:42; 7:6, 11; 9:51, 52, 56, 57; 13:33; 17:11; 22:22, 29; 24:28). It could suggest that Jesus is on a journey, a theme that definitely is present later in Luke 9-19.

3 tn Here καί (kai) has been translated as “so” to indicate the continuation of the topic; in light of his rejection at Nazareth, Jesus went on to Capernaum.

4 sn Capernaum was a town on the northwest shore of the Sea of Galilee, 680 ft (204 m) below sea level. It was a major trade and economic center in the North Galilean region, and it became the hub of operations for Jesus’ Galilean ministry.

map For location see Map1 D2; Map2 C3; Map3 B2.

5 tn Or “city.”

6 tn Grk “them”; the referent (the people) has been specified in the translation for clarity.
