Luke 9:34-35

Context
9:34 As 1  he was saying this, a cloud 2  came 3  and overshadowed 4  them, and they were afraid as they entered the cloud. 9:35 Then 5  a voice came from the cloud, saying, “This is my Son, my Chosen One. 6  Listen to him!” 7 

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

2 sn This cloud is the cloud of God’s presence and the voice is his as well.

3 tn Or “appeared.”

4 tn Or “surrounded.”

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

6 tc Most mss, especially the later ones, have ἀγαπητός (agaphto", “the one I love”; A C* W Ë13 33 Ï it), or ἀγαπητὸς ἐν ᾧ ()υδόκησα (agaphto" en |w (h)udokhsa, “the one I love, in whom I am well pleased”; C3 D Ψ pc) here, instead of ἐκλελεγμένος (eklelegmeno", “the Chosen One”), but these variants are probably assimilations to Matt 17:5 and Mark 9:7. The text behind the translation also enjoys excellent support from Ì45,75 א B L Ξ (579) 892 1241 pc co.

tn The participle ὁ ἐκλελεγμένος (Jo eklelegmeno"), which could be translated “the One who has been chosen,” is best understood as a title rather than a descriptive phrase, probably deriving from Isa 42:1 (LXX) which uses the similar ὁ ἐκλεκτός (Jo eklekto") which also appears in Luke 23:35.

sn This divine endorsement is like Luke 3:22 at Jesus’ baptism. One difference here is the mention of the Chosen One, a reference to the unique and beloved role of the regal, messianic Son.

7 sn The expression listen to him comes from Deut 18:15 and makes two points: 1) Jesus is a prophet like Moses, a leader-prophet, and 2) they have much yet to learn from him.
