NET © Notes

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

tn Grk “behold.”

tn Grk “this one”; the referent (the child) is supplied in the translation for clarity.

sn The phrase the falling and rising of many emphasizes that Jesus will bring division in the nation, as some will be judged (falling) and others blessed (rising) because of how they respond to him. The language is like Isa 8:14-15 and conceptually like Isa 28:13-16. Here is the first hint that Jesus’ coming will be accompanied with some difficulties.

tn Grk “and for a sign of contradiction.”
