NET © Notes

sn This mission statement, “I have come to bring fire on the earth,” looks to the purging and division Jesus causes: See Luke 3:9, 17; 9:54; 17:29 for fire, 5:32; 7:34; 9:58; 12:51 for the topic of mission.

tn Grk “cast.” For βάλλω (ballw) in the sense of causing a state or condition, see L&N 13.14.
