Luke 7:39

Context
7:39 Now when the Pharisee who had invited him saw this, 1  he said to himself, “If this man were a prophet, 2  he would know who and what kind of woman 3  this is who is touching him, that she is a sinner.”

1 tn The word “this” is not in the Greek text, but is implied. Direct objects were frequently omitted in Greek when clear from the context.

2 tn This is a good example of a second class (contrary to fact) Greek conditional sentence. The Pharisee said, in effect, “If this man were a prophet (but he is not)…”

3 sn The Pharisees believed in a form of separationism that would have prevented them from any kind of association with such a sinful woman.
