Marvelous words (Lk 2:33-2:33

“The child’s


And mother


At what was being said

About him.”


καὶ ἦν ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἡ μήτηρ θαυμάζοντες ἐπὶ τοῖς λαλουμένοις περὶ αὐτοῦ.


Luke commented that the father and mother of Jesus marveled or were amazed (καὶ ἦν ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἡ μήτηρ θαυμάζοντες) about all that was being said about their child (ἐπὶ τοῖς λαλουμένοις περὶ αὐτοῦ.).  They seemed genuinely surprised at all these comments about their new child.
