Matthew 17:22-23

Context

17:22 When 1  they gathered together in Galilee, Jesus told them, “The Son of Man is going to be betrayed into the hands of men. 2  17:23 They will kill him, and on the third day he will be raised.” And they became greatly distressed.

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

2 tn The plural Greek term ἀνθρώπων (anqrwpwn) is considered by some to be used here in a generic sense, referring to both men and women (cf. NRSV “into human hands”; TEV, CEV “to people”). However, because this can be taken as a specific reference to the group responsible for Jesus’ arrest, where it is unlikely women were present (cf. Matt 26:47-56; Mark 14:43-52; Luke 22:47-53; John 18:2-12), the word “men” has been retained in the translation. There may also be a slight wordplay with “the Son of Man” earlier in the verse.
