Commentary to the 4th Sunday in Ordinary Time – Year C

The last verse: “But Jesus passed through their midst and went his way” (v. 30) does not refer to his miraculous disappearance. It is a message of consolation and hope that Luke wants to give to the Christians of his community who are facing opposition, misunderstandings, disagreements, and hostility... Luke ensures: Protected by God, they, too, will pass through the midst of persecution and will continue confidently along until they reach their goal.
