    VERSE (1) -
    Lu 8:45; 12:1 Mt 4:18 *etc:

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 5:1

    ¶ Y aconteci, que estando l junto al lago de Genezaret, la multitud se agolpaba sobre l para oír la palabra de Dios.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Luke 5:1

    Verse 1. The people pressed upon him] There was a glorious prospect of a plentiful
    harvest, but how few of these blades came to full corn in the ear! To hear with diligence and affection is well; but a preacher of the Gospel may expect that, out of crowds of hearers, only a few, comparatively, will fully receive the truth, and hold out to the end.

    To hear the word of God] tou logon tou qeou, The doctrine of God, or, the heavenly doctrine.

    The lake of Gennesaret] Called also the sea of Galilee, Matthew iv. 18, and Mark i. 16; and the sea of Tiberias, John vi. 1. It was, according to Josephus, forty furlongs in breadth, and one hundred and forty in length.

    No synagogue could have contained the multitudes who attended our Lord's ministry; and therefore he was obliged to preach in the open air.

    But this also some of the most eminent rabbins were in the habit of doing; though among some of their brethren it was not deemed reputable.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 1. And it came to pass, that as the people pressed upon him , etc.] As Christ went through Galilee, and preached in the synagogues there, great crowds of people attended on him, and they followed him wherever he went; and so large were their numbers, and so very eager were they to see him, and hear him, that they were even troublesome to him, and bore hard upon him, and were ready to press him down, though they had no ill design upon him, but only to hear the word of God ; the scriptures of the Old Testament explained, and the doctrines of the Gospel preached; and which were preached by him, as never were before or since, and in such a manner as were not by the Scribes and Pharisees; and both the matter and manner of his ministry drew a vast concourse of people after him: he stood by the lake of Gennesaret ; the same with the sea of Chinnereth, ( Numbers 34:11, Joshua 12:3, 13:27) where the Targums of Onkelos, Jonathan, and the Jerusalem, call it, rswngd amy , the sea of Geausar or Gennesaret: and so it is elsewhere called f241 , and is the same which is called the sea of Galilee, and of Tiberias, ( John 6:1, 21:1) and is, by other writers f242 , as here, called the lake of Gennesaret, and said to be sixteen miles long, and six broad. Josephus says f243 , it is forty furlongs broad, and an hundred long. The Jews say f244 , that the holy, blessed God created seven seas, but chose none of them all, but the sea of Gennesaret.

    And indeed, it was a place chosen by Christ, and honoured, and made famous by him, by his preaching at it, his miracles upon it, and showing himself there after his resurrection.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-11 - When Christ had done preaching, he told Peter to apply to the busines of his calling. Time spent on week days in public exercises of religion, need be but little hinderance in time, and may be grea furtherance to us in temper of mind, as to our worldly business. With what cheerfulness may we go about the duties of our calling, when we have been with God, and thus have our worldly employments sanctified to us by the word and prayer! Though they had taken nothing, yet Chris told them to let down their nets again. We must not abruptly quit ou callings because we have not the success in them we desire. We ar likely to speed well, when we follow the guidance of Christ's word. The draught of fishes was by a miracle. We must all, like Peter, ow ourselves to be sinful men, therefore Jesus Christ might justly depar from us. But we must beseech him that he would not depart; for woe unt us if the Saviour depart from sinners! Rather let us entreat him to come and dwell in our hearts by faith, that he may transform an cleanse them. These fishermen forsook all, and followed Jesus, when their calling prospered. When riches increase, and we are tempted to set our hearts upon them, then to quit them for Christ is thankworthy.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    1. Pressed (epikeisqai). Lit., were laid upon.

    To hear. The A.V. is correct according to the reading tou ajkouein, which it follows. The true reading is kai ajkouein, and heard. So Rev.

    He stood (autov hn estwv). The pronoun distinguishes him from the crowd which pressed upon him: he on his part stood. Render the participle and finite verb as Rev., was standing.

    Lake (limnhn). An illustration of the more classical style of Luke as compared with Matthew and Mark. They and John also use qalassa, sea. See on Matt. iv. 18.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    5:1 {Pressed upon him} (epikeisqai). Luke in this paragraph (#5:1-11; Mr 1:16-20; Mt 4:18-22) does not follow the chronology of Mark as he usually does. It seems reasonably clear that the renewed call of the four fishermen came before the first tour of Galilee in #Lu 4:42-44. It is here assumed that Luke is describing in his own way the incident given in Mark and Matthew above. Luke singles out Simon in a graphic way. this verb epikeisqai is an old one and means to lie upon, rest upon as of a stone on the tomb (#Joh 11:38) or of fish on the burning coals (#Joh 21:9). So it is used of a storm (#Ac 27:20) and of the urgent demands for Christ's crucifixion (#Lu 23:23). Here it vividly pictures the eager crowds around Jesus. en twi epikeisqai is a favorite idiom with Luke as we have already seen, en with the articular infinitive in the locative case. {That} (kai). kai does not technically mean the declarative conjunction "that," but it is a fair rendering of the somewhat awkward idiom of Luke to a certain extent imitating the Hebrew use of _wav_. {Was standing} (en hestws). Periphrastic second past perfect of histemi which here is equal to a practical imperfect. {By the lake} (para ten limnen). The use of the accusative with para, alongside, after a verb of rest used to be called the pregnant use, came and was standing. But that is no longer necessary, for the accusative as the case of extension is the oldest of the cases and in later Greek regains many of the earlier uses of the other cases employed for more precise distinctions. See the same idiom in verse #2. We need not here stress the notion of extension. "With characteristic accuracy Luke never calls it a sea, while the others never call it a lake" (Plummer).
