WK Translation Notes

+
a
[I must by all means keep the coming feast at Jerusalem]: Very weighty witnesses omit the words in brackets; as to which Tischendorf refers to Acts 19:21; 20:16....It is well known that the clause within the brackets is not in the Uncials of the highest character, though it is attested by abundant and good authority. Hence it becomes very much a question of internal evidence. Meyer lays stress on the reference of ἀναβάς in verse 22; but 'going up', though unquestionably to Jerusalem, need not have been to keep a Jewish feast, unless it was expressly so explained. The only thing recorded as a fact is his saluting the church. This in no way disproves the purpose to keep the feast there; but it undoes the force of the argument founded on ἀναβάς. The truth is that both may be true; verse 21, if genuine, stating what he meant to do in Jerusalem, though nothing is said of its accomplishment; and verse 22 letting us know that his heart had other objects before him than the purpose he had mentioned to the Jews of Ephesus.
