Luke 18:32

32 For he will be handed over to the Gentiles; and he will be mocked and insulted and spat upon.

Luke 18:32 Meaning and Commentary

Luke 18:32

For he shall be delivered unto the Gentiles
As he was by the chief priests, Scribes, and elders, to Pilate, the Roman governor, and by him to the soldiers:

and shall be mocked;
as he was by the latter, when they crowned him with thorns, arrayed him in a purple robe, and put a reed into his hand, and bowed the knee to him, saying, hail king of the Jews; and likewise by the Jews when he hung upon the cross:

and spitefully entreated.
The Syriac and Persic versions leave out this clause here, and read it the next verse. It may regard the injuries done him, the abuses and affronts he received, both by words and blows:

and spitted on;
as he was both by officers in the high priest's palace, and by the Roman soldiers in Pilate's hall; see ( Isaiah 50:6 ) .

31 Then he took the twelve aside and said to them, "See, we are going up to Jerusalem, and everything that is written about the Son of Man by the prophets will be accomplished.
32 For he will be handed over to the Gentiles; and he will be mocked and insulted and spat upon.
33 After they have flogged him, they will kill him, and on the third day he will rise again."
34 But they understood nothing about all these things; in fact, what he said was hidden from them, and they did not grasp what was said.
