Everyone was astonished (Lk 9:43-9:43)

“All were astonished

At the greatness of God.

Everyone

Was amazed

At all that

Jesus was doing,”

 

ἐξεπλήσσοντο δὲ πάντες ἐπὶ τῇ μεγαλειότητι τοῦ Θεοῦ. Πάντων δὲ θαυμαζόντων ἐπὶ πᾶσιν οἷς ἐποίει

 

Luke uniquely said that all were astonished (ἐξεπλήσσοντο δὲ πάντες) at the greatness of God (ἐπὶ τῇ μεγαλειότητι τοῦ Θεοῦ).  Everyone was amazed (Πάντων δὲ θαυμαζόντων) at all that Jesus was doing (ἐπὶ πᾶσιν οἷς ἐποίει).  Once again, Luke had all the people amazed or astonished at the various healings that Jesus was doing.  Mark and Matthew did not mention this.  Jesus was a celebrity with great powers.  However, everyone could see that it was connected to the greatness of God.  Do you see the greatness of God in your life?
