Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Luke 12:49-53.


Luke 12:50

_ _ But ... a baptism, etc. — clearly, His own bloody baptism, first to take place.

_ _ how ... straitened — not, “how do I long for its accomplishment,” as many understand it, thus making it but a repetition of Luke 12:49; but “what a pressure of spirit is upon Me.”

_ _ till it be accomplished — till it be over. Before a promiscuous audience, such obscure language was fit on a theme like this; but oh, what surges of mysterious emotion in the view of what was now so near at hand does it reveal!

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Luke 12:41-53.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Luke 12:50

But I have a baptism to be baptized with — I must suffer first, before I can set up my kingdom. And how I long to fight my way through all!
