NET © Notes

tn Because of the length and complexity of the Greek sentence, a new sentence was started here in the translation.

tn The referent of the expression “a stronger man” is Jesus.

tn Grk “stronger man than he attacks.”

tn Grk “his”; the referent (the first man mentioned) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

tn Grk “on which he relied.”

tn Or “and distributes.”

sn Some see the imagery here as similar to Eph 4:7-10, although no opponents are explicitly named in that passage. Jesus has the victory over Satan. Jesus’ acts of healing mean that the war is being won and the kingdom is coming.
