What does Luke 9:52 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Luke 9:52

And sent messengers before his face
Who very likely were his two disciples, James and John, since they so highly resented the ill treatment their master met with from the Samaritans:

and they went;
before him:

and entered into a village of the Samaritans;
or "city", as the Vulgate Latin, Persic, and Ethiopic versions read, and so one of Stephens's copies; which lay in the way from Galilee to Judea, where the disciples had been forbid to enter, that is, in order to preach, ( Matthew 10:5 )

To make ready for him;
to prepare a lodging, and proper food for him and his disciples, as they passed on in their journey, for his intention was not to make any stay there.
