The people of this generation (Lk 7:31-7:31)

“To what then

Will I compare

The people

Of this generation?

What are they like?”

 

Τίνι οὖν ὁμοιώσω τοὺς ἀνθρώπους τῆς γενεᾶς ταύτης, καὶ τίνι εἰσὶν ὅμοιοι;

 

Luke indicated that Jesus asked the crowd to what then would he compare the men or the people of this generation (Τίνι οὖν ὁμοιώσω τοὺς ἀνθρώπους τῆς γενεᾶς ταύτης)?  What are they like (καὶ τίνι εἰσὶν ὅμοιοι)?  Luke took on the present generation also, just like Matthew, chapter 11:16, indicating a possible common Q source.  Jesus wanted to know to what he should compare this generation to?  What do you think about this present contemporary generation of people?
