Luke 9:19

Context
9:19 They 1  answered, 2  “John the Baptist; others say Elijah; 3  and still others that one of the prophets of long ago has risen.” 4 

1 tn Grk “And they.” Here καί (kai) has not been translated because of differences between Greek and English style.

2 tn Grk “And answering, they said.” This is redundant in contemporary English and has been simplified to “They answered.”

3 sn The appearance of Elijah would mean that the end time had come. According to 2 Kgs 2:11, Elijah was still alive. In Mal 4:5 it is said that Elijah would be the precursor of Messiah.

4 sn The phrase has risen could be understood to mean “has been resurrected,” but this is only a possible option, not a necessary one, since the phrase could merely mean that a figure had appeared on the scene who mirrored an earlier historical figure. Note that the three categories in the reply match the ones in Luke 9:7-8.
