Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Luke 19:12

_ _ a far country — said to put down the notion that He was just on His way to set up His kingdom, and to inaugurate it by His personal presence.

_ _ to receive ... a kingdom — be invested with royalty; as when Herod went to Rome and was there made king; a striking expression of what our Lord went away for and received, “sitting down at the right hand of the Majesty on high.”

_ _ to return — at His second coming.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Luke 19:11-27.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Luke 19:12

He went into a far country to receive a kingdom — Christ went to heaven, to receive his sovereign power as wan, even all authority in heaven and earth. Matthew 25:14; Mark 13:34.
