Luke 9:2

9:2 and he sent 1  them out to proclaim 2  the kingdom of God 3  and to heal the sick. 4 

Luke 9:6

9:6 Then 5  they departed and went throughout 6  the villages, proclaiming the good news 7  and healing people everywhere.

1 sn “To send out” is often a term of divine commission in Luke: 1:19; 4:18, 43; 7:27; 9:48; 10:1, 16; 11:49; 13:34; 24:49.

2 tn Or “to preach.”

3 sn The kingdom of God is a major theme of Jesus. It is a realm in which Jesus rules and to which those who trust him belong. See Luke 6:20; 11:20; 17:20-21.

4 sn As Jesus’ own ministry (Luke 4:16-44) involved both word (to proclaim) and deed (to heal) so also would that of the disciples.

5 tn Here δέ (de) has been translated as “then” to indicate the implied sequence of events within the narrative.

6 tn This is a distributive use of κατά (kata); see L&N 83:12 where this verse is cited as an example of the usage.

7 tn Or “preaching the gospel.”

sn This verse is similar to Luke 9:2, except for good news at this point. The change means that to “preach the kingdom” is to “preach the good news.” The ideas are interchangeable as summaries for the disciples’ message. They are combined in Luke 8:1.
