Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Luke 2:39

_ _ Nothing is more difficult than to fix the precise order in which the visit of the Magi, with the flight into and return from Egypt (Matthew 2:13-23), are to be taken, in relation to the circumcision and presentation of Christ in the temple, here recorded. It is perhaps best to leave this in the obscurity in which we find it, as the result of two independent, though if we knew all, easily reconcilable narratives.

Matthew Henry's Commentary
