Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Luke 9:55-56

_ _ know not what ... spirit — The thing ye demand, though in keeping with the legal, is unsuited to the genius of the evangelical dispensation. The sparks of unholy indignation would seize readily enough on this example of Elias, though our Lord’s rebuke (as is plain from Luke 9:56) is directed to the principle involved rather than the animal heat which doubtless prompted the reference. “It is a golden sentence of Tillotson, Let us never do anything for religion which is contrary to religion” [Webster and Wilkinson].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Luke 9:51-56.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Luke 9:55

Ye know not what manner of spirit — The spirit of Christianity is. It is not a spirit of wrath and vengeance, but of peace, and gentleness, and love.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Luke 9:55

But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of (n) spirit ye are of.

(n) So the Hebrews say, that is, you do not know what will, mind, and counsel you are of: so the gifts of God are called the spirit because they are given by God's Spirit, and so are the things that are contrary to them also called the spirit, which proceed from the wicked spirit, such as the spirit of covetousness, of pride, and madness.
