Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Luke 24:44-49.


Luke 24:49

_ _ I send — the present tense, to intimate its nearness.

_ _ promise of my Father — that is, what My Father hath promised; the Holy Ghost, of which Christ is the authoritative Dispenser (John 14:7; Revelation 3:1; Revelation 5:6).

_ _ endued — invested, or clothed with; implying, as the parallels show (Romans 13:14; 1 Corinthians 15:53; Galatians 3:27; Colossians 3:9, Colossians 3:10), their being so penetrated and acted upon by conscious supernatural power (in the full sense of that word) as to stamp with divine authority the whole exercise of their apostolic office, including, of course, their pen as well as their mouth.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Luke 24:36-49.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Luke 24:49

Behold I send the promise — Emphatically so called; the Holy Ghost.

And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, (i) until ye be endued with power from on high.
