“And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read.”
King James Version (KJV)
4:16 He stood up - Showing thereby that he had a desire to read the Scripture to the congregation: on which the book was given to him. It was the Jewish custom to read standing, but to preach sitting. #Mt 13:54|; Mr 6:1.
Lu 4:16 Went into the synagogue. The meetings were held every Sabbath in the synagogues, and Jesus was accustomed, and Jesus was accustomed to attend, as were all religious Jews. Compare with Mt 13:53-58 Mr 6:1-5. Critics differ whether this is an account of the same visit as that of Matthew 13, or a different one. It seems probable that there were two visits. Stood up for to read. To indicate his readiness to read. It was allowed that any member of the synagogue might read the lesson, and this was the one in which he had been reared.
