Luke 6:8 Meaning and Commentary

Luke 6:8

But he knew their thoughts
Being the omniscient God; though they had said nothing of their intentions, he knew what they designed, should he heal the man with his withered hand, as they expected he would:

and said to the man which had the withered hand, rise up, and stand
forth in the midst.
The Syriac and Persic versions add, "of the synagogue", and which is the true sense; (See Gill on Mark 3:3)

and he arose and stood forth;
he rose up from his seat, and stood up in the midst of the synagogue, and of the people, that he might be seen of all.

Luke 6:8 In-Context

6 On another Sabbath he went to the meeting place and taught. There was a man there with a crippled right hand.
7 The religion scholars and Pharisees had their eye on Jesus to see if he would heal the man, hoping to catch him in a Sabbath infraction.
8 He knew what they were up to and spoke to the man with the crippled hand: "Get up and stand here before us." He did.
9 Then Jesus addressed them, "Let me ask you something: What kind of action suits the Sabbath best? Doing good or doing evil? Helping people or leaving them helpless?"
10 He looked around, looked each one in the eye. He said to the man, "Hold out your hand." He held it out - it was as good as new!
