Luke 19:29 Meaning and Commentary

Luke 19:29

And it came to pass when he was come nigh
The other evangelists, Matthew and Mark, add "unto Jerusalem"; but this Luke designs afterwards, ( Luke 19:37 ) and therefore here means, as is expressed, that he was come nigh

to Bethphage and Bethany;
two tracts of land which reached from Mount Olivet to Jerusalem; so that when he was there, he was nigh unto the city:

at the mount, called [the Mount] of Olives;
or "Elaion", as the Ethiopic version, which retains the Greek word for it; and which has its name from the great number of olive trees that grew upon it:

he sent two of his disciples;
their names are not mentioned by any of the evangelists, but it is very probable they were Peter and John; of the places here mentioned; (See Gill on Matthew 21:1).

31 If anyone asks you, ‘Why are you untying it?’ say, ‘The Lord needs it.’ ”
