Now on the same occasion there were some present who reported to Him about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mixed with their sacrifices.
Pilate; see entry for Luke 3:1.
“I tell you, no, but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish.
(a) Repent. To repent means to change your mind. In context, it means putting your faith in Jesus (John 3:15). God is not willing that any perish but all come to repentance (2 Pet. 3:9). See entry for Repentance.
(b) Perish. Those who reject the author of life have no lasting life in them (John 3:16).
“I tell you, no, but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish.”
(a) Repent; see entry for Luke 13:3.
(b) Perish; see entry for Luke 13:3.
Just at that time some Pharisees approached, saying to Him, “Go away, leave here, for Herod wants to kill You.”
(a) Herod; see entry for Luke 3:1.
(b) Wants to kill you. Herod the tetrarch of Galilee had killed John the Baptist (Luke 9:9). Now he wanted to kill Jesus.
