    Definitions for Luke 4:21

    Scripture - That which is written; book; letter.

    Barnes' Notes on Luke 4:21

    This scripture - This writing, or this part of the Scriptures.

    Fulfilled - It is coming to pass; the thing originally intended by it is about to be accomplished.

    In your ears - In your "hearing;" or you hear, in my preaching, the fulfillment of this prophecy. It is probable that he said much "more" than is here recorded, but Luke has preserved only the "substance" of his discourse. This was the "amount" or "sum"" of his sermon, or his explanation of the passage, that it was now receiving its accomplishment.

    Wesley's Notes on Luke 4:21

    4:21 To - day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears - By what you hear me speak.
