Luke 4:29

Context
4:29 They got up, forced 1  him out of the town, 2  and brought him to the brow of the hill on which their town was built, so that 3  they could throw him down the cliff. 4 

1 tn Grk “cast.”

2 tn Or “city.”

3 tn The Greek conjunction ὥστε (Jwste) here indicates their purpose.

4 sn The attempt to throw him down the cliff looks like “lynch law,” but it may really be an indication that Jesus was regarded as a false prophet who was worthy of death (Deut 13:5). Such a sentence meant being thrown into a pit and then stoned.
