Luke 4:15

Context
4:15 He 1  began to teach 2  in their synagogues 3  and was praised 4  by all.

Luke 4:22

Context
4:22 All 5  were speaking well of him, and were amazed at the gracious words coming out of his mouth. They 6  said, “Isn’t this 7  Joseph’s son?”

1 tn Grk “And he.” Here καί (kai) has not been translated because of differences between Greek and English style.

2 tn The imperfect verb has been translated ingressively.

3 sn The next incident in Luke 4:16-30 is probably to be seen as an example of this ministry of teaching in their synagogues in Galilee. Synagogues were places for Jewish prayer and worship, with recognized leadership (cf. Luke 8:41). Though the origin of the synagogue is not entirely clear, it seems to have arisen in the postexilic community during the intertestamental period. A town could establish a synagogue if there were at least ten men. In normative Judaism of the NT period, the OT scripture was read and discussed in the synagogue by the men who were present (see the Mishnah, m. Megillah 3-4; m. Berakhot 2).

4 tn Grk “being glorified.” The participle δοξαζόμενος (doxazomeno") has been translated as a finite verb due to requirements of contemporary English style. This is the only place Luke uses the verb δοξάζω (doxazw) of Jesus.

5 tn Grk “And all.” Here καί (kai) has not been translated because of differences between Greek and English style.

6 tn Grk “And they.” Here καί (kai) has not been translated because of differences between Greek and English style.

7 sn The form of the question assumes a positive reply. It really amounts to an objection, as Jesus’ response in the next verses shows. Jesus spoke smoothly and impressively. He made a wonderful declaration, but could a local carpenter’s son make such an offer? That was their real question.
