Geneva Notes/ Commentary on Luke 13:10-17

From the Geneva Notes

Lu 13:10
13:10 {3} And he was teaching in one of the synagogues on the
sabbath.

(3) Christ came to deliver us from the hand of Satan.

Lu 13:11
13:11 And, behold, there was a woman which had a {d} spirit of
infirmity eighteen years, and was bowed together, and
could in no wise lift up [herself].

(d) Troubled with a disease which Satan caused.

Lu 13:12
13:12 And when Jesus saw her, he called [her to him], and said
unto her, Woman, thou art {e} loosed from thine infirmity.

(e) For Satan had the woman bound, as if she had been in
chains, to the extent that for eighteen years time she
could not hold up her head.

Lu 13:14
13:14 {4} And the {f} ruler of the synagogue answered with
indignation, because that Jesus had healed on the sabbath
day, and said unto the people, There are six days in which
men ought to work: in them therefore come and be healed,
and not on the sabbath day.

(4) A graphic image of hypocrisy, and the reward of it.
(f) One of the rulers of the synagogue, for it appears that
there were many rulers of the synagogue, see Mr 5:22
Ac 13:15.
