1 tn Here δέ (de) has been translated as “then” to indicate the implied sequence of events within the narrative.

2 tn Grk “he”; the referent has been specified in the translation for clarity.

3 sn The fig tree is a variation on the picture of a vine as representing the nation; see Isa 5:1-7.

5 tn Grk “the coming [season].”

6 tn The phrase “very well” is supplied in the translation to complete the elided idea, but its absence is telling.

7 tn This is a first class condition in the Greek text, showing which of the options is assumed.
