Luke 5:1

Context
The Call of the Disciples

5:1 Now 1  Jesus was standing by the Lake of Gennesaret, 2  and the crowd was pressing around him 3  to hear the word of God.

1 tn Grk “Now it happened that.” The introductory phrase ἐγένετο (egeneto, “it happened that”), common in Luke (69 times) and Acts (54 times), is redundant in contemporary English and has not been translated.

2 sn The Lake of Gennesaret is another name for the Sea of Galilee. Cf. the parallel in Matt 4:18.

3 sn The image of the crowd pressing around him suggests the people leaning forward to catch Jesus’ every word.
