Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Luke 4:22

_ _ gracious words — “the words of grace,” referring both to the richness of His matter and the sweetness of His manner (Psalms 45:2).

_ _ Is not this, etc. — (See on Matthew 13:54-56). They knew He had received no rabbinical education, and anything supernatural they seemed incapable of conceiving.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Luke 4:14-30.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Luke 4:22

The gracious words which proceeded out of his mouth — A person of spiritual discernment may find in all the discourses of our Lord a peculiar sweetness, gravity, and becomingness, such as is not to be found in the same degree, not even in those of the apostles.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Luke 4:22

(4) And all (e) bare him witness, and (f) wondered at the (g) gracious words which proceeded out of his mouth. And they said, Is not this Joseph's son?

(4) Familiarity causes Christ to be condemned and therefore he often goes to strangers.

(e) Approved those things which he spoke with common consent and voice: for this word "witness" signifies in this place (and many others) "to allow and approve a thing with open confession".

(f) Present at this meeting of the scriptures were not only the learned, but also the common people: and besides that, their mother tongue was used, for how else could the people have wondered? Paul appointed the same manner for doing things in the Church at Corinth; (1Co. 14:1-40).

(g) Words full of the mighty power of God, which appeared in all his doings, and as well allured men marvellously unto him; see (Psalms 45:2), "grace is poured into thy lips".
