Luke 7:24

Context

7:24 When 1  John’s messengers had gone, Jesus 2  began to speak to the crowds about John: “What did you go out into the wilderness 3  to see? A reed shaken by the wind? 4 

1 tn Here δέ (de) has not been translated.

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

3 tn Or “desert.”

4 tn There is a debate as to whether one should read this figuratively (“to see someone who is easily blown over?”) or literally (Grk “to see the wilderness vegetation?…No, to see a prophet”). Either view makes good sense, but the following examples suggest the question should be read literally and understood to point to the fact that a prophet drew them to the desert.
