Darby's Synopsis of the New Testament

Luke 12

Introduction

1:2 attendants (c-11) Huperetes . see Note, 1 Corinthians 4:1 .

Verse 1

12:1 first, (b-26) Some read 'first of all beware.' but needlessly, I think. It was the first thing on his heart to tell them. Beware (c-27) See Note to Matthew 16:6 .

Verse 4

12:4 not (d-9) See Note, Matthew 10:28 .

Verse 6

12:6 assaria? (e-8) See Note, Matthew 10:29 .

Verse 9

12:9 denied (f-12) A stronger word (as Matthew 16:24 ; Matthew 26:34 ) than the first 'denied' here.

Verse 19

12:19 soul, (a-7) Soul, (a-8) 'Life' and 'soul' are the same in Greek, but not in ver. 15.

Verse 20

12:20 required (b-13) Lit. 'they shall require.' see Note, ch. 6.38.

Verse 22

12:22 life, (a-18) 'Life' and 'soul' are the same in Greek, but not in ver. 15.

Verse 23

12:23 life (a-2) 'Life' and 'soul' are the same in Greek, but not in ver. 15.

Verse 24

12:24 they (c-5) Or 'for they.'

Verse 25

12:25 stature (d-12) Or 'growth.' see Note, Matthew 6:27 .

Verse 32

12:32 not, (e-2) There is an emphatic article here, impossible to translate into English. '[you who are] the little flock.' It is the character Christ gives to them as attached to him in the midst of the world.

Verse 38

12:38 [bondmen]. (a-22) 'Bondmen' is doubtful. This would make 'those' more emphatic.

Verse 58

12:58 For (b-1) The 'For' here is the practical conclusion the Lord draws as to the need of Israel's reconciling itself with God. 'Hearing what I say, that is what you have to do.' lest (c-21) See Notes, Matthew 5:25 and Mark 4:12 .

Verse 59

12:59 mite. (a-20) * The smallest current coin of that day.
