Luke 6:13

6:13 When 1  morning came, he called his disciples and chose twelve of them, whom he also named apostles: 2 

Luke 9:1

The Sending of the Twelve Apostles

9:1 After 3  Jesus 4  called 5  the twelve 6  together, he gave them power and authority over all demons and to cure 7  diseases,

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

2 sn The term apostles is rare in the gospels, found only in Matt 10:2, possibly in Mark 3:14, and six more times in Luke (here plus 9:10; 11:49; 17:5; 22:14; 24:10).

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

4 tn Grk “he”; the referent (Jesus) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

5 tn An aorist participle preceding an aorist main verb may indicate either contemporaneous (simultaneous) action (“When he called… he gave”) or antecedent (prior) action (“After he called… he gave”). The participle συγκαλεσάμενος (sunkalesameno") has been translated here as indicating antecedent action.

6 tc Some mss add ἀποστόλους (apostolou", “apostles”; א C* L Θ Ψ 070 0291 Ë13 33 579 892 1241 1424 2542 pc lat) or μαθητὰς αὐτοῦ (maqhta" autou, “his disciples”; C3 al it) here, but such clarifying notes are clearly secondary.

7 sn Note how Luke distinguishes between exorcisms (authority over all demons) and diseases here.
