Luke 9:53

Context
9:53 but the villagers 1  refused to welcome 2  him, because he was determined to go to Jerusalem. 3 

1 tn Grk “they”; the referent (the villagers) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

2 tn Or “did not receive”; this verb, δέχομαι (decomai), is a term of hospitality or welcome (L&N 34.53).

3 tn Grk “because his face was set toward Jerusalem.”

sn Jerusalem is to be the place of rejection, as Luke 9:44 suggested. Jesus had resolved to meet his fate in Jerusalem, so the rejection was no surprise.
