Coffman Commentaries on the Bible - Luke 23:32

And there were also two others, malefactors, led with him to be put to death.This was Pilate's doing, and was probably designed as an insult to the Jews who would not have been favorable to such executions in such proximity to their great Passover (that night); but God overruled this vengeful deed of the governor in the fulfillment of prophecy. "He was numbered with the transgressors," and "he made his grave with the wicked" (Isaiah 53:12,9). read more

Thomas Coke Commentary on the Holy Bible - Luke 23:32

Luke 23:32. And there were also two other malefactors,— This should either be stopped in the following manner;—And there were also two others, malefactors, led with him, &c. or, translated, And they led along with him two other men, who were malefactors. The distinction, between Jesus and the malefactors is remarkably preserved in the next verse. read more

Expository Notes of Dr. Thomas Constable - Luke 23:26-32

1. Events on the way to Golgotha 23:26-32Luke omitted reference to the Roman soldiers’ mockery and flogging of Jesus (Matthew 27:27-30; Mark 15:16-19). Perhaps he wanted to connect the Jews’ call for Jesus’ crucifixion and the crucifixion itself as closely as he could. This arrangement of the facts has the effect of heightening the innocence of Jesus and the guilt of those who demanded His execution. read more

Expository Notes of Dr. Thomas Constable - Luke 23:26-49

F. The crucifixion of Jesus 23:26-49Luke’s account of the crucifixion includes a prophecy of the fate of Jerusalem (Luke 23:29-31), more emphasis on the men who experienced crucifixion with Jesus (Luke 23:39-43), and less stress on the crowd that mocked Jesus. It climaxes with Jesus’ final prayer of trust in His Father (Luke 23:46) and the reactions of various people to His death (Luke 23:47-49)."In this version of the story we may see an accent on the way in which Jesus died as a martyr,... read more

Thomas Constable

Expository Notes of Dr. Thomas Constable - Luke 23:32

The criminals crucified with Jesus 23:32This verse constitutes a narrative bridge connecting Jesus’ journey to the Cross with His crucifixion. One of its functions seems to be to introduce the two criminals who feature later in the story (Luke 23:33; Luke 23:39-43). More important, it associates Jesus with guilty sinners. [Note: W. Hendriksen, Exposition of the Gospel According to Luke, p. 1027.] This reference also adds to the humiliation of Jesus that Luke stressed. There are several... read more

John Dummelow's Commentary on the Bible - Luke 23:1-56

Trial Before Pilate and Herod. The Crucifixion and Burial1-5. The trial before Pilate begins (Matthew 27:1-2, Matthew 27:11-14; Mark 15:1-5; John 18:28-38). See on Mt and Jn.6-12. Trial before Herod (peculiar to Lk). ’By sending Jesus to Herod the clever Roman gained two ends at once. First, he got rid of the business which was imposed on him, and then he took the first step towards a reconciliation with Herod (Luke 23:12). The cause of their quarrel had probably been some conflict of... read more

Expositor's Dictionary of Texts - Luke 23:1-56

With Me in Paradise Luke 23:3 We have heard the first word of peace: the priestly intercession for the transgressors. Now we listen to the comfortable word that the Son of man addresses to one who truly turns to Him. There is a natural sequence: first the sinner, then the penitent The prayer of Christ is no sooner uttered than it begins to be answered. The firstfruits of the cross is the malefactor who hangs by Jesus' side. And the robber receives a message of peace. Christ's gift to him is... read more

1Chapter 25THE PASSION.Luke 22:47-71 - Luke 23:1-56WHILE Jesus kept His sad watch in Gethsemane, treading the winepress alone, His enemies kept theirs in the city. The step of Judas, as he passed out into the night, went verberating within the house of the high priest, and onwards into the palace of Pilate himself, awaking a thousand echoes, as swift messengers flew hither and thither, bearing the hurried summons, calling the rulers and elders from their repose, and marshalling the Roman... read more
