Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Luke 13:32

_ _ that fox — that crafty, cruel enemy of God’s innocent servants.

_ _ Behold, I cast out devils and I do cures — that is, “Plot on and ply thy wiles; I also have My plans; My works of mercy are nearing completion, but some yet remain; I have work for to-day and to-morrow too, and the third day; by that time I shall be where his jurisdiction reaches not; the guilt of My blood shall not lie at his door; that dark deed is reserved for others.” He does not say, I preach the Gospel — that would have made little impression upon Herod — in the light of the merciful character of Christ’s actions the malice of Herod’s snares is laid bare [Bengel].

_ _ to-day, to-morrow, the third day — remarkable language expressive of successive steps of His work yet remaining, the calm deliberateness with which He meant to go through with them, one after another, to the last, unmoved by Herod’s threat, yet the rapid march with which they were now hastening to completion. (Compare Luke 22:37).

_ _ I shall be perfected — I finish my course, I attain completion.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Luke 13:31-35.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Luke 13:32

And he said, Go and tell that fox — With great propriety so called, for his subtilty and cowardice. The meaning of our Lord's answer is, Notwithstanding all that he can do, I shall for the short time I have left, do the works of him that sent me. When that time is fulfilled, I shall be offered up. Yet not here, but in the bloody city. Behold, I cast out devils — With what majesty does he speak to his enemies! With what tenderness to his friends! The third day I am perfected — On the third day he left Galilee, and set out for Jerusalem, to die there. But let us carefully distinguish between those things wherein Christ is our pattern, and those which were peculiar to his office. His extraordinary office justified him in using that severity of language, when speaking of wicked princes, and corrupt teachers, to which we have no call; and by which we should only bring scandal on religion, and ruin on ourselves, while we irritated rather than convinced or reformed those whom we so indecently rebuked.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Luke 13:32

And he said unto them, Go ye, and tell that (h) fox, Behold, I cast out devils, and I do cures (i) to day and to morrow, and the third [day] I shall be (k) perfected.

(h) That deceitful and treacherous man.

(i) That is, a small time, and Theophylact says it is a proverb: or else by "to day" we may understand the present time, and by tomorrow the time to come, meaning by this the entire time of his ministry and office.

(k) That is, when the sacrifice for sin is finished.
