    VERSE (20) -
    :17 Mt 20:26-28

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 4:20

    Y enrollando el libro, lo dio al ministro y se sent; y los ojos de todos en la sinagoga estaban fijos en l.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Luke 4:20

    Verse 20. Were fastened on him.] Were attentively
    fixed on him. The proper import of atenizontev autw.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 14-30 -
    Christ taught in their synagogues, their places of public worship where they met to read, expound, and apply the word, to pray an praise. All the gifts and graces of the Spirit were upon him and of him, without measure. By Christ, sinners may be loosed from the bond of guilt, and by his Spirit and grace from the bondage of corruption He came by the word of his gospel, to bring light to those that sat in the dark, and by the power of his grace, to give sight to those tha were blind. And he preached the acceptable year of the Lord. Le sinners attend to the Saviour's invitation when liberty is thu proclaimed. Christ's name was Wonderful; in nothing was he more so tha in the word of his grace, and the power that went along with it. We ma well wonder that he should speak such words of grace to such graceles wretches as mankind. Some prejudice often furnishes an objectio against the humbling doctrine of the cross; and while it is the word of God that stirs up men's enmity, they will blame the conduct or manne of the speaker. The doctrine of God's sovereignty, his right to do his will, provokes proud men. They will not seek his favour in his own way and are angry when others have the favours they neglect. Still is Jesu rejected by multitudes who hear the same message from his words. Whil they crucify him afresh by their sins, may we honour him as the Son of God, the Saviour of men, and seek to show we do so by our obedience.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    20. He closed (ptuxav). See on verse 17.

    Minister (uphreth). See on Matt. v. 25. Lit., as Rev., attendant.

    Minister is likely to be misunderstood as referring to the president of the congregation, who, as the teaching elder, would have addressed the people if Jesus had not done so. It means the attendant who had charge of the sacred rolls. He was a salaried officer, a kind of chapel-clerk.

    Sat down. As about to teach; that being the habitual position of a Jewish teacher.

    Were fastened (hsan atenizontev). The participle and finite verb denoting continuous, steadfast attention. The verb, from teinw, to stretch, denotes fixed attention. Indeed, the word attention itself, etymologically considered, conveys the same idea.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    4:20 {He closed the book} (ptuxas to biblion). Aorist active participle of ptussw. Rolled up the roll and gave it back to the attendant who had given it to him and who put it away again in its case. {Sat down} (ekaqisen). Took his seat there as a sign that he was going to speak instead of going back to his former seat. this was the usual Jewish attitude for public speaking and teaching (#Lu 5:3; Mt 5:1; Mr 4:1; Ac 16:13). {Were fastened on him} (esan atenizontes autwi). Periphrastic imperfect active and so a vivid description. Literally, the eyes of all in the synagogue were gazing fixedly upon him. The verb atenizw occurs in Aristotle and the Septuagint. It is from the adjective atenes and that from teinw, to stretch, and copulative or intensive a, not a privative. The word occurs in the N.T. here and in #22:56, ten times in Acts, and in #2Co 3:7,13. Paul uses it of the steady eager gaze of the people at Moses when he came down from the mountain when he had been communing with God. There was something in the look of Jesus here that held the people spellbound for the moment, apart from the great reputation with which he came to them. In small measure every effective speaker knows what it is to meet the eager expectations of an audience.
