Luke 7:22-23

Context
7:22 So 1  he answered them, 2  “Go tell 3  John what you have seen and heard: 4  The blind see, the lame walk, lepers are cleansed, the 5  deaf hear, the dead are raised, the poor have good news proclaimed to them. 7:23 Blessed is anyone 6  who takes no offense at me.”

1 tn Here καί (kai) has been translated as “so” to indicate the relationship to Jesus’ miraculous cures in the preceding sentence.

2 tn Grk “answering, he said to them.” This is redundant in English and has been simplified in the translation to “he answered them.”

3 sn The same verb has been translated “inform” in 7:18.

4 sn What you have seen and heard. The following activities all paraphrase various OT descriptions of the time of promised salvation: Isa 35:5-6; 26:19; 29:18-19; 61:1. Jesus is answering not by acknowledging a title, but by pointing to the nature of his works, thus indicating the nature of the time.

5 tn Grk “and the,” but καί (kai) has not been translated since English normally uses a coordinating conjunction only between the last two elements in a series of three or more.

6 tn Grk “whoever.”
