TSNTyndale Study Notes:

1:19–12:50 Jesus reveals himself to the world through his miraculous signs and sermons. Audiences were divided: Some wanted to believe in him; others opposed him. This division intensifies as the book unfolds. Jesus ended his public ministry with a final appeal for people to believe in him (12:44-50).


UTNuW Translation Notes:

Note 1 topic: writing-pronouns

εἶπαν & αὐτῷ

˱they˲_said & ˱to˲_him

Here, the pronouns they and him refer to the priests and Levites and John the Baptist, respectively. If it would be helpful in your language, you could state this explicitly. Alternate translation: “the priests and Levites said to John the Baptist”

Note 2 topic: figures-of-speech / ellipsis

τίς εἶ? ἵνα ἀπόκρισιν δῶμεν τοῖς πέμψασιν ἡμᾶς; τί

who ˱you˲_are in_order_that /an/_answer ˱we˲_/may/_give ˱to˲_the_‹ones› /having/_sent us what

John is leaving out some of the words that a sentence would need in many languages in order to be complete. If it would be helpful in your language, you could supply these words from the context. This may require you to change the punctuation of the sentences. Alternate translation: “Who are you? Tell us so that we might given an answer to those who sent us. What”

Note 3 topic: figures-of-speech / exclusive

δῶμεν & ἡμᾶς

˱we˲_/may/_give & us

Here, we and us refer to the priests and Levites, not to John. Your language may require you to mark this form.

ἵνα ἀπόκρισιν δῶμεν

in_order_that /an/_answer ˱we˲_/may/_give

Alternate translation: “so that we might tell your answer”

Note 4 topic: figures-of-speech / explicit

τοῖς πέμψασιν ἡμᾶς

˱to˲_the_‹ones› /having/_sent us

This phrase refers to the Jewish leaders in Jerusalem. If this might confuse your readers, you could express the meaning explicitly. Alternate translation: “to those leaders in Jerusalem who sent us”
