Luke 12:11

Context
12:11 But when they bring you before the synagogues, 1  the 2  rulers, and the authorities, do not worry about how you should make your defense 3  or what you should say,

Luke 21:12

Context
21:12 But before all this, 4  they will seize 5  you and persecute you, handing you over to the synagogues 6  and prisons. You 7  will be brought before kings and governors because of my name.

1 sn The saying looks at persecution both from a Jewish context as the mention of synagogues suggests, and from a Gentile one as the reference to the rulers and the authorities suggests.

sn See the note on synagogues in 4:15.

2 tn Grk “and the,” but καί (kai) has not been translated since English normally uses a coordinating conjunction only between the last two elements in a series of three or more.

3 tn Grk “about how or what you should say in your defense,” but this is redundant with the following clause, “or what you should say.”

4 sn But before all this. Another note of timing is present, this one especially important in understanding the sequence in the discourse. Before the things noted in vv. 8-11 are the events of vv. 12-19.

5 tn Grk “will lay their hands on you.”

6 sn Some of the persecution is of Jewish origin (the synagogues). Some fulfillment of this can be seen in Acts. See the note on synagogues in 4:15.

7 tn Because of the length and complexity of the Greek sentence, a new sentence was started here in the translation.
