Luke 24:47 The 1prophetic Scriptures also conclude, that 2the proclaiming of this message, 3celebrating the authority and meaning of his name, will inevitably lead to a 4co-knowing, a joint-awakening, 5engaging the full realization of the complete 6remission of 7sins. [Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!] What has happened here in Jerusalem, will continue to circle out like ripples becoming unstoppable tsunami waves, 8overwhelming the mass of humanity. The 9royal reign of the good news of their redeemed identity and innocence is the context of this proclamation.
Isaiah 11:9 For the earth will be full of the knowledge of the glory of the Lord; as the waters cover the sea. Habakkuk 2:14.
Superscript 1/…1prophetic Scriptures
The previous sentence in Luke 24:46 continues in verse 47 […1and it is written, it is what is to be proclaimed…] καὶ κηρυχθῆναι kai keruchmai, …what is written in the Scriptures also [kai] proclaim the complete conclusion of the prophetic word…
1See Isaiah 53:3 He was despised and rejected by men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief; and as one from whom men hide their faces he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
Isaiah 53:4 Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted.
Isaiah 53:5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that made us whole, and with his stripes we are healed.
Isaiah 53:6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned everyone to his own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all.
Isaiah 53:7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth; like a lamb that is led to the slaughter, and like a sheep that before its shearers is dumb, so he opened not his mouth.
Isaiah 53:8 By oppression and judgment he was taken away; and as for his generation, who considered that he was cut off out of the land of the living, stricken for the transgression of my people?
Isaiah 53:9 And they made his grave with the wicked and with a rich man in his death, although he had done no violence, and there was no deceit in his mouth.
Then, see Isaiah 53:10 in the LXX Septuagint. No. It did not “please the Lord to bruise him..”
Isaiah 53:10 The Lord desires to cleanse his wounds – and in the offering of his life as sacrifice he shall see his seed afar off.
Also verse 11 – the joy that is set before him. The offspring is the fruit of the travail of his soul. Heb 12:2, for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame.
Isaiah 40:9 Ascend a high mountain, O Zion, herald of good tidings; lift up your voice with strength, O Jerusalem, herald of good tidings…Also Isaiah 9:7 Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David, and over his kingdom, to establish it, and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and for evermore. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will do this.
And, Isaiah 60:1 Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon you.
Isaiah 60:2 For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and thick darkness the peoples; but the LORD will arise upon you, and his glory will be seen upon you.
Isaiah 60:3 And nations shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.
And again, Isaiah 52:7 How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good tidings, who publishes peace, who brings good tidings of good, who publishes salvation, who says to Zion, “Your God reigns.”
Isaiah 52:10 The LORD has bared his holy arm before the eyes of all the nations; and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God.
See Romans 10:15 What gives someone the urgency to declare these things? It is recorded in prophetic Scripture, “How lovely on the mountains [where the watchmen were stationed to witness the outcome of a war] are the feet of them leaping with the exciting news of victory. Because of their eyewitness encounter they are qualified to run with the Gospel of peace and announce the consequent glad tidings of good things that will benefit everyone.”
Isaiah 40:5 And the glory of Jahweh shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together, for the mouth of the Lord has spoken.
Habakkuk 2:14 For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.
Superscript 2/2proclaiming of this message
The verb, κηρυχθηναι, 2keruchthenai, to be proclaimed/published – is the Aorist Passive Infinitive of κηρύσσω kērussō. While the Present Passive Infinitive expresses progressive or imperfective aspect. It pictures the action expressed by the verb as being in progress; where the Aorist Infinitive, however, does not expressprogressive aspect. It presents the action expressed by the verb as a completed unit with a beginning and end. Thus, this proclamation endorses the complete conclusion of the prophetic word. It is a focused engagement, perfectly packaged in the specific understanding of the crux of the Gospel which is mankind’s co-inclusion in the death and resurrection of Jesus.
Superscript 3/3celebrating his name
Then the words, ἐπὶ τῷ ὀνόματι αὐτοῦ 3epi too onomati autou – celebrating the authority and meaning of his name. The Preposition epi suggests a continuous influence upon; means to become fully acquainted with the prophetic significance now concluded. The words too onomati are in the Dative Case, meaning, wrapped up in this name. Then, autou is the Genitive pronoun, the name he owns.
The word, sadly translated “repent” is the Greek word, μετάνοια 4metanoiawhich means to realize God’s thoughts. Like most Greek words, metanoia is a compound word, from meta, together with and νοιέω noieō, to perceive with the mind. It describes the awakening of the mind to that which is true; it is a gathering of one’s thoughts, a co-knowing.
Superscript 5/ 5engaging the full realization
See Metzger’s Textual commentary on the use of the Preposition 5eis [unto; a point reached in conclusion], instead of kai [and] in some manuscripts. See Luke 3:3 He emerged from the wilderness and travelled throughout the entire region of the Jordan, publicly announcing a baptism of reformation; an engaging of a radical mindshift, celebrating mankind’s redeemed identity and innocence. The Preposition eis, speaks of a point reached in conclusion. The words, αφεσιν αμαρτιων aphesin hamartioon, forgiveness of your sins.
Superscript 6/the complete 6remission
The word translated forgiveness, or remission is the word ἄφεσις 6aphesis which occurs in Luke more frequently than in all the other N T writers combined; from 6aphieimi; with two components, apo, away from, and hieimi an intensive form of eimi, I am; thus, forgiveness is in essence a restoring to your true ‘I-am-ness.’ The injury, insult, shame, hostility or guilt would no longer define the individual. We are not qualified to be forgiven by the degree of our remorse or the acts of our restitution; God declares mankind forgiven and innocent based solely upon the obedience of Christ and his one act of righteousness vs. the innumerable acts of unrighteousness of mankind. Once we realize this, his love breaks the shackles in our minds, to free us and energize us to live the authentic life of our design that exhibits the divine nature effortlessly. That doesn’t make remorse and restitution unnecessary it makes it a natural and authentic outflow, wrapped up in then joy of one’s discovery and encounter of humanity’s redeemed innocence.)
Superscript 7/ The Lamb of God takes away the 1sin of the world.
The word for sin, ἁμαρτία 6hamartia basically refers to a distorted identity; from ha, negative and meros, form portion or form, thus to be without your allotted portion or without form, pointing to a disorientated, distorted, bankrupt identity; the word meros, is the stem of morphe, as in 2 Corinthians 3:18 the word metamorphe, with form, which is the opposite of hamartia – without form. Sin is to live out of context with the blueprint of one’s design; to behave out of tune with God’s original harmony. Hamartia suggests anything that could possibly distract from the awareness of our likeness. See Deuteronomy 32:18, “You have forgotten the Rock that begot you and have gotten out of step with the God who danced with you.” Thus sin is that which separates one from one’s true identity.
Superscript 8/ anunstoppable tsunami, 8overwhelming humanity
εἰς πάντα τὰ ἔθνη eis 8panta ta ethna, includingthe entire non-Jewish world. Deut 32:43 LXX Rejoice, oh heavens, with him, and let all the prophetic-messengers of God worship him; rejoice oh Gentiles together with his people, and let all the sons of God strengthen themselves in him. [Here the Gentiles are proclaimed as joint heirs in equal sonship.]
Superscript 9/The 9royal reign of the good news
Luke 24:47…What has happened here in Jerusalem, will continue to circle out like ripples becoming unstoppable tsunami waves, 8overwhelming the mass of humanity. The 9royal reign of the good news of their redeemed identity and innocence is the context of this proclamation. [Robertson comments on the word αρξαμενοι – 9arxamenoi which is an Aorist Middle Participle of archō, but the nominative plural with no obvious syntactical connection… [It’s called an Anacolutha, which are often sentences interrupted midway, where there is a change in the syntactical structure of the sentence]… αρξαμενοι ἀπὸ ῾Ιερουσαλήμ arksamenoi apo Hierousalemgive an unexpected discontinuity in the expression of ideas within the sentence, leading to a form of words in which there is logical incoherence of thought. The Aorist Participle is distinguished from the Present or Perfect participle in terms of kind of action, not time of action, in that it conceives of action not as in progress [Present], nor as an existing result [Perfect], but as a simple fact.]
This doesn’t appear to be that simple though, until one connects it with the prophetic announcement of Isaiah, which was obviously the very focus of Jesus’ mind, when he spoke these words. [The LXX Greek translation of the OT, was the Scriptures of Jesus’ day.]
The word, archō [arxamenoi]is a primary verb; to be first in political rank or power: – to reign in royalty. See Rom 15:12 The Prophet Isaiah sees the root of Jesse who shall rise out of the ground where it was cut off, to reign perpetually over the masses of humanity; he will win their trust. Paul is quoting direct from the LXX Septuagint.
Isaiah 11:1 And there shall come forth a Royal scepter out of the root of Jesse, and a blossom shall arise from [his] root:
Isaiah 11:10 And in that day there shall be the root of Jesse, and he that shall arise to rule over the nations; in him shall the nations trust, and his rest shall be glorious.)
Notes on the root of Jesse:
See Revelation 22:16 I am Jesus. I sent my celestial messenger to be witness of these things to you before the churches; confirming to them that I am the Root and offspring of David, the radiant Morning Star.
Confirming that the night is past; the new day now dawns!
Isaiah 11:1 Then a shoot will come out from the stump of Jesse, and a branch from its roots will bear fruit.
See Luke 3:32 Son of Jesseישי Jahweh is my husband – from יאישfrom יֵשׁ yêsh/yaysh. This is an unused root meaning to stand out, or exist; used adverbially or as a copula for the substantive verb εε%היהhâyâh[H1961 to breathe; to be; to exist; from the core of the name of Jahweh, יהוה “existing”. Thus, the root word for Jesse, היהhajah, in the Ancient Hebrew is, εε – the pictograph ε represents one who is looking at a great sight with his hands raised. In David’s father, Jesse, it is the one looking at the other in mirror likeness! See Acts 13:22, Romans 15:12, And further Isaiah says, And in that day there shall be the root of Jesse, and he that shall arise to rule over the nations; in him shall the nations trust, and his rest shall be glorious.
See LXX Septuagint, Isaiah 11:1-10 ΚΑΙ ἐξελεύσεται ῥάβδος ἐκ τῆς ρίζης ᾿Ιεσσαί
Isaiah 11:1 And there shall come forth a rod out of the root of Jesse, and a blossom shall arise from [his] root:
Isaiah 11:2 and the Spirit of God shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and strength, the spirit of knowledge and godliness shall fill him;
Isaiah 11:3 the spirit of the fear of God. He shall not judge according to appearance, nor reprove according to report:
Isaiah 11:4 but he shall judge the cause of the lowly, and shall reprove the lowly of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the word of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he destroy that which is ungodly. [See Revelation 2:16 below…]
Isaiah 11:5 And he shall have his loins girt with righteousness, and his sides clothed with truth. [See my notes on Revelation 19:11 Then, in my vision, heaven opened and I saw a white horse appear; and the Name of the one seated upon the horse is Faithful and True. Righteousness spans the range of his judgment and warfare.]
Isaiah 11:6 And the wolf shall feed with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the young calf and bull and lion shall feed together; and a little child shall lead them. Isaiah 11:7 And the ox and bear shall feed together; and their young shall be together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox.
Isaiah 11:8 And an infant shall put his hand on the holes of asps, and on the nest of young asps.
Isaiah 11:9 And they shall not hurt, nor shall they at all be able to destroy any one on my holy mountain: for the whole [world] is filled with the knowledge of the Lord, as much water covers the seas.
Isaiah 11:10 And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, and he that shall arise to rule over the Gentiles; in him shall the Gentiles trust, and his rest shall be glorious.
Comment on Isaiah 11:4 above…Revelation 1:16 In his right hand he held seven stars and his words were like a sharp two-edged sword proceeding from of his mouth. His face shone like the sun in its full strength. Revelation 2:16 I urge you to come to your senses immediately! The 1sword of my mouth will swiftly wage war against this type of conversation.(Cutting to the division of soul and spirit – see Hebrews 4:12 Also Revelation 1:16. Engaging the deepest longings of the heart! See Luke 2:35 for rhomphaia. The Sword, 1rhomphaia [LXX] would always point back to mankind’s original identity. The Hebrew word in Genesis 3:24, הפךhâpak is a primitive root; meaning to turn about; by implication to change, to return, to be converted, turn back. Also in the Septuagint the same thought is communicated in the Greek word, strephō, which is the strengthened from the base of tropay; to turn around or reverse: – convert, turn again, back again, to turn self about. In Luke 15 the prodigal son returns to himself – Plato is quoted by Ackerman [Christian Element in Plato] as thinking of redemption as coming to oneself!
Revelation 2:25 1Lay hold of that which your hearts 2bear witness to 3until you fully grasp the scope and understand the most conclusive significance of 4my coming!
(1) The word 1kratesate from krateo [to seize] is in the Aorist Imperative suggesting, “get it over and done with!”
(2) Again the word 2echo is used, to hold, to resonate.
(3) The word 3achri, until, from akron, the farthest bounds, uttermost parts, end, highest, extreme – related to the word akmen, extremity, climax, acme, highest degree.
(4) The verb 4hekso from heko to have come, is the Aorist Active Subjunctive which is the mood of probability.
The time of the action of the subjunctive mood is relative to the time of the main verb, which in this case is – echete, Present Active indicative of echo, “that which your hearts resonate with.” Heart resonance is certain! As in 2 Corinthians 3:2 “…known and read by all!” Or in the Mirror, “You are our Epistle written within us, an open letter speaking a global language; one that everyone can read and recognize as their mother tongue!” If the Subjunctive Mood is used in a purpose or result clause, then the action should not be thought of as a possible result, but should be viewed as a definite outcome that will happen as a result of another stated action.
Revelation 2:26 Seeing my victory as your victory makes you the overcomer. By embracing the 1completeness of my works as your 2treasure, you realize my 3authority in you to possess the nations.
(1) See verse 23 – the 1success of my works is to your credit. The words, αχρι τελους achri telous suggest, taking my words to its full conclusion.
(2) The word 2tereo means to value, to treasure, to guard with great care. See Psalm 2: 7,8 [also verse 9 as referenced in the next verse, 27] You are my son, today I have begotten you. Ask of me, and I will make the nations your heritage, and the ends of the earth your possession. Paul quotes Psalm 2 in Acts 13:33 when he preaches the resurrection of Jesus and in Ephesians 2:5,6 and Colossians 3:1-3 he celebrates our co-begotteness! Also Peter announces that we were born anew when Jesus was raised from the dead! 1 Peter 1:3.
(3) The word 3exousia, often translated authority has two components, ek, out of, source and eimi, I am! The Preposition 3epi suggests continuous influence upon, from a position of authority.
Revelation 2:27 You will 1shepherd the nations with a royal scepter and shatter 2their ‘alienated mindsets’ like a potter’s vessel of clay.
(1) He quotes Psalm 2:9, “You shall break them with a rod of iron, and dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.” Sadly, the Hebrew Masoretic Text uses the word רעעRAA – to be bad, be evil; to be displeasing; to be injurious; to be wicked; to do an injury or hurt; to be mischief; instead of the same sounding word, רעה 1 RA’AH with a Hay at the end and not an Ayin, which means to shepherd! Also in the Septuagint, the Greek word ποιμανεῖς 1poimaneis, shepherd is used! You shall feed them as a shepherd nurtures his flock.
(2) With reference to the 2alienated mindsets that ruled the nations see Numbers 24:17, “A scepter shall rise out of Israel; it shall crush the forehead of Moab!” (mindset!) The shepherd’s staff was never intended to beat up the sheep but to protect and free them from any possible threat! See Revelation 19:15. See Extended Notes on The Rod of Iron at the end of Revelation 2.
Revelation 2:28 1In the same way that my shepherding mission is 3sourced in the Father I have extended it to you! I also give you the 2Morning Star!
(1) I’ve attached part of the previous verse here; the Greek word, 1para, with the Genitive, indicating source or origin, close and immediate proximity, intimate connection, union.
2 Peter 1:19, “Take my word as one would take a lamp at night; the day is about to dawn for you in your own understanding. When the 2Morning Star appears, you no longer need the lamp; this will happen shortly on the horizon of your own hearts!”
Revelation 22:16 I am Jesus. I sent my celestial messenger to be witness of these things to you before the churches; confirming to them that I am the Root and offspring of David, the radiant Morning Star!
See my notes on The “Fallen Star” is The bright Morning Star, at the end of Revelation 9.
Revelation 2:29 Now listen up with your inner ears! Hear with understanding what the Spirit is saying to the ekklesia!
See 1 Corinthians 2:13 The impact of our words are not confined to the familiar wisdom of the world taught by human experience and tradition, but communicated by seamless spirit resonance, combining spirit with spirit.
