Luke 6:7

Context
6:7 The experts in the law 1  and the Pharisees 2  watched 3  Jesus 4  closely to see if 5  he would heal on the Sabbath, 6  so that they could find a reason to accuse him.

1 tn Or “The scribes.” See the note on the phrase “experts in the law” in 5:21.

2 sn See the note on Pharisees in 5:17.

3 sn The term translated watched…closely is emotive, since it carries negative connotations. It means they were watching him out of the corner of their eye or spying on him.

4 tn Grk “him”; the referent (Jesus) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

5 tn This is a first class condition in the Greek text; Jesus’ opponents anticipated he would do this.

6 sn The background for this is the view that only if life was endangered should one attempt to heal on the Sabbath (see the Mishnah, m. Shabbat 6.3; 12.1; 18.3; 19.2; m. Yoma 8.6).
