Luke 24:19-21

24:19 He said to them, “What things?” “The things concerning Jesus the Nazarene,” they replied, “a man who, with his powerful deeds and words, proved to be a prophet before God and all the people; 24:20 and how our chief priests and rulers handed him over to be condemned to death, and crucified him. 24:21 But we had hoped that he was the one who was going to redeem Israel. Not only this, but it is now the third day since these things happened.

tn Here καί (kai) has not been translated because of differences between Greek and English style.

tn This translates the Greek term ἀνήρ (anhr).

sn The role of Jesus as prophet is a function Luke frequently mentions: 4:25-27; 9:35; 13:31-35.

sn Handed him over is another summary of the passion like Luke 9:22.

sn See the note on crucify in 23:21.

tn The imperfect verb looks back to the view that they held during Jesus’ past ministry.

sn Their messianic hope concerning Jesus is expressed by the phrase who was going to redeem Israel.
