Luke has an introductory comment that was not in Matthew, before he gave the response of Jesus. Luke stated that at that very hour (ἐν ἐκείνῃ τῇ ὥρᾳ), Jesus had just then cured or healed many people (ἐθεράπευσεν πολλοὺς) of diseases (ἀπὸ νόσων), of severe afflictions (καὶ μαστίγων), and of evil spirits (καὶ πνευμάτων πονηρῶν). He had given sight to many blind people (καὶ τυφλοῖς πολλοῖς ἐχαρίσατο βλέπειν). In other words, Jesus was a miracle worker. Have you ever seen a miracle worker?
Luke uniquely said that the Lord Jesus came forward (καὶ προσελθὼν) and touched the funeral bier (ἥψατο τῆς σοροῦ). The pall bearers stood still (οἱ δὲ βαστάζοντες ἔστησαν). The Lord told the young man (καὶ εἶπεν Νεανίσκε) with a solemn pronouncement of I say to you (σοὶ λέγω), rise up (ἐγέρθητι). Luke used the pronoun he to speak about the Lord. This would have been a shocking thing to touch the funeral bier, since it made people unclean to touch a dead person. Thus, the pall bearers were taken back. However, the command of Jesus telling the young man to get up meant that he was not dead. This is the first instance of a man being raised from the dead, but it is only found here in Luke, not elsewhere. This would be a big deal, not just curing people of illness and diseases, or chasing demons out of people. This was a raising from the dead, a foretaste of the resurrection. Have you ever heard of a young man getting up from a funeral casket?
