NET © Notes

tn Grk “said,” but since this is a continuation of previous remarks, “added” is used here.

tn Grk “Truly (ἀμήν, amhn), I say to you.”

sn Jesus argues that he will get no respect in his own hometown. There is a wordplay here on the word acceptable (δεκτός, dektos), which also occurs in v. 19: Jesus has declared the “acceptable” year of the Lord (here translated year of the Lord’s favor), but he is not “accepted” by the people of his own hometown.
