NET © Notes

tn Grk “John having already proclaimed before his coming a baptism…,” a genitive absolute construction which is awkward in English. A new sentence was begun in the translation at this point.

tn Grk “he”; the referent (Jesus) has been specified in the context for clarity, since God is mentioned in the preceding context and John the Baptist in the following clause.

sn John refers here to John the Baptist.

tn Grk “a baptism of repentance”; the genitive has been translated as a genitive of purpose.
