John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

For he shall be delivered unto the Gentiles,.... As he was by the chief priests, Scribes, and elders, to Pilate, the Roman governor, and by him to the soldiers:

and shall be mocked; as he was by the latter, when they crowned him with thorns, arrayed him in a purple robe, and put a reed into his hand, and bowed the knee to him, saying, hail king of the Jews; and likewise by the Jews when he hung upon the cross:

and spitefully entreated. The Syriac and Persic versions leave out this clause here, and read it the next verse. It may regard the injuries done him, the abuses and affronts he received, both by words and blows:

and spitted on; as he was both by officers in the high priest's palace, and by the Roman soldiers in Pilate's hall; see Isaiah 50:6.

Greek Testament Critical Exegetical Commentary

32.] The betrayal is omitted here, which is unaccountable if Luke saw Matthew’s account, as also the omission of the crucifying, this being the first announcement of it: see a similar omission in ch. Luke 9:45.

предадут... язычникам Каждое Его пророчество о Своей смерти (ср. 9:22, 44; 12:50; 13:32, 33; 17:25) проливало на нее новый свет, и особенно последнее. Здесь Он впервые упомянул о том, что будет предан язычникам.

Peter Pett's Commentary on the Bible

“For he will be delivered up to the Gentiles, and will be mocked, and shamefully treated, and spat on, and they will scourge and kill him, and the third day he will rise again.”

He then spelled it out in detail. He was to be handed over to the Gentiles. This was the indication of ultimate rejection, of ultimate shame (compare Deuteronomy 28:37; Judges 4:2; Jeremiah 29:18; Lamentations 2:9; Ezekiel 4:13; Hosea 8:8; Hosea 9:17). He would be treated as such an outcast that He was not fit to be sentenced in a Jewish court, as though He was cut off from Israel. He would be ‘cast out of the camp’ (Leviticus 24:23; Numbers 5:2, compare Hebrews 13:11-13). His prophetic status would be rejected, and He would be judged as a common criminal.

And then He would be mocked and shamefully treated and spat on. These words had in mind Isaiah 50:6; Isaiah 53:3; Psalms 22:6-8. He would be the rejected Servant, the rejected Son of David.

Then they would scourge Him and kill Him. In those days no man could come before a Roman court on a serious crime without being scourged (Isaiah 50:6; Isaiah 53:5). It was in order to bring home to him the seriousness of the situation. And on top of this Jesus also knew what the final consequence must be. He knew that He must die (Isaiah 53:7-9).

But above all He knew that He would rise again, for He would receive His portion (Isaiah 53:10-12; Hosea 6:1-2). Triumph must follow disaster because God was in it. He would not allow His Holy One to see corruption (Psalms 16:8-11; Acts 2:25-28; Acts 13:34-37). Rather He would be raised to a heavenly throne (Psalms 110:1; Acts 2:34-36).

Thus Jesus saw His whole future in terms of the Old Testament prophecies. It should be noted that as in Mark Jesus in Luke gives no hint of the fact that He will die on the cross. In view of His other sayings about His disciples taking up the cross this lack of mention of the cross would be quite remarkable unless these sayings were actually made before that event, and unchanged afterwards. We can imagine the great temptation to do so.

Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers

(32) He shall be delivered unto the Gentiles.—The words are nearly the same as in the other Gospels, but the “spitefully entreated” is peculiar to St. Luke.
