Expository Notes of Dr. Thomas Constable - Luke 4:14-50

IV. JESUS’ MINISTRY IN AND AROUND GALILEE 4:14-9:50Luke commenced his account of Jesus’ public ministry with His return to Galilee following His temptation. This section of his Gospel ends with Jesus’ decision to leave Galilee for Jerusalem and the Cross (Luke 9:51). Luke did not give as much information about Jesus’ Galilean ministry as the other synoptic writers did (cf. Matthew 4:12 to Matthew 16:12; Mark 1:14 to Mark 8:26). He chose, rather, to emphasize Jesus’ ministry as He traveled from... read more

Expository Notes of Dr. Thomas Constable - Luke 4:31-44

3. Jesus’ ministry in and around Capernaum 4:31-44The people of Nazareth rejected Jesus because they did not believe that He was the Messiah or the Son of God. Luke next gave many proofs of Jesus’ messiahship and deity. He chose incidents from Jesus’ ministry in and around Galilee to demonstrate this. The first four incidents happened in Capernaum and its environs. Even though these incidents involved miracles, they occurred in a broader context of teaching. read more

Expository Notes of Dr. Thomas Constable - Luke 4:42-44

Jesus’ first preaching tour of Galilee 4:42-44 (cf. Mark 1:35-39)Again Luke stressed the wide ministry that Jesus purposely carried on. This pericope records what happened the morning following the previous incident (cf. Luke 4:40). The people of Nazareth had wanted Jesus to leave, but the people of Capernaum begged Him to stay. Jesus wanted to reach as many people as possible with His message. "Judea" (Luke 4:44) evidently refers to the whole Roman province that included Galilee, not just to... read more

Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers - Luke 4:42-44

(42-44) And when it was . . .—Again we have a narrative omitted by St. Matthew, but common to St. Luke and St. Mark. See Notes on Mark 1:35-39.The people sought him.—The Greek tense implies continued seeking.And stayed him.—Better, tried to stay Him. Their wish was that He should remain at Capernaum, heal their sick, teach them, and perhaps also that they and their fellow-townsmen might thus share in the fame of the new Prophet. read more

Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers - Luke 4:43

(43) I must preach.—Better, I must declare the glad tidings of the kingdom. The Greek verb is literally “to evangelise,” and is quite distinct from that commonly translated “preach.”To other cities also.—Literally, to the other cities, with a special reference, probably, to those of Galilee. read more

Expositor's Dictionary of Texts - Luke 4:1-44

Luke 4:4 The Greeks... knew that man does not live by bread alone, that livelihood is not life, that mere wealth is not well-being. The satisfaction of material wants is not the end of human endeavour. The wealth of nations, like the happiness of individuals, has its source deeper than in the accumulation of riches or the expansion of commerce. The true value of the goods of life is determined by the sense of life as a whole, and by their relation to the higher and distinctively human ends of... read more

Expositor's Bible Commentary - Luke 4:30-44

Chapter 9A SABBATH IN GALILEE.WE should naturally expect that our physician-Evangelist would have a peculiar interest in Christ’s connection with human suffering and disease, and in this we are not mistaken.It is almost a superfluous task to consider what our Gospels would have been had there been no miracles of healing to record; but we may safely say that such a blank would be inexplicable, if not impossible. Even had prophecy been utterly silent on the subject, should we not look for the... read more
