CommentaryVincent's Word Studies
When the time was come (ἐν τῷ συμπληροῦσθαι τὰς ἡμέρας)
Lit., in the fulfilling of the days. This means when the days were being fulfilled; not when they were fulfilled: when the time was drawing near. Rev., were well-nigh come. Luke is speaking of a period beginning with the first announcement of his sufferings, and extending to the time of his being received up.
That he should be received up (τῆς ἀναλήμψεως αὐτοῦ)
