I measure Luke commentary's in their consideration of the point between verses Luke 9:50 and Luke 9:51. The biblical verse numbering system breaks down hard at this specific juncture for reasons I've often wondered. An entirely different narrative begins mid-way in Luke 9 at Luke 9:51 and continues thru 19:27. The significance of the narrative change is adequate to rise to a new book in my opinion, yet a 'new' chapter was not even noticed by the old translators. I've often wondered if the original, verse numbering translators theologically understood that they had missed such a significant "new" grouping of chapters. Swindoll seizes on the curiosity of the `whole other story' that begins at 9:51. He seizes on several difficult passages in this 'long walk' story to render fresh and challenging opinions.
Swindoll's Luke is a lengthy commentary. It may be too much for a newbie as it explores the underlying Greek extensively. If you know biblical Greek, you will see that Swindoll is applying and contrasting the latest in-situ word meanings and highlights the Greek that has yet to be seen in use extra-biblically. Several examples that Swindoll captures have sent me to the references and I was excited to grasp the extended meanings that amplify the passages.
5-star superb commentary!
