(69) Hereafter shall the Son of man sit.—Literally, From this time forth shall the Son of Man be sitting. In St. Luke’s shorter record the immediate sequence of this confession upon an apparent refusal to answer seems hardly consistent. The narrative of St. Matthew shows that the change of purpose or of action was caused by the solemn adjuration of the high priest, which no longer left Him the alternative of silence. The form of the answer, too, is somewhat altered. Not “ye shall see,” but simply “shall be sitting,” as though the dominant thought in St. Luke’s mind in reporting the words was that even in the agony and death that were so soon to come on Him, our Lord found Himself glorified (John 12:23). The Cross was-His Throne, and while hanging on it, He was in spirit sitting at the right hand of the Father.

22:63-71 Those that condemned Jesus for a blasphemer, were the vilest blasphemers. He referred them to his second coming, for the full proof of his being the Christ, to their confusion, since they would not admit the proof of it to their conviction. He owns himself to be the Son of God, though he knew he should suffer for it. Upon this they ground his condemnation. Their eyes being blinded, they rush on. Let us meditate on this amazing transaction, and consider Him who endured such contradiction of sinners against himself.See the notes at Matthew 26:57-68. Lu 22:63-71. Jesus Condemned to Die and Shamefully Entreated.

(See on [1730]Mr 14:53-63; [1731]Joh 18:19, &c.; and [1732]Lu 22:55-62.)

See Poole on "Luke 22:66"

Hereafter shall the son of man,.... Meaning himself, who was truly man, and then in a low and mean form, and thought by the Jews to be a mere man; though this character was known by them to belong to the Messiah, especially what follows; as that he should

sit on the right hand of the power of God: as he did after his resurrection, and ascension, and which was manifest by the destruction of their nation, city, and temple; See Gill on Matthew 27:64.

Hereafter shall the Son of man sit on the right hand of the power of God.
Luke 22:69. What Jesus now says amounts to an affirmative answer.—ἀπὸ τοῦ νῦν ἔσται, etc.: Jesus points to a speedy change of position from humiliation to exaltation, without reference to what they will see, or to a second coming.

69. Hereafter shall the Son of man sit] Rather, But from henceforth (comp. Luke 1:48, Luke 5:10) shall the Son of man he seated at. Our Lord seems at last to have broken His silence in these words, in order to end a miserable and useless scene. The words would at once recall Daniel 7:13-14; see John 1:51.

Luke 22:69. Ἀπὸ τοῦ νο͂ν) [not ‘hereafter,’ as Engl. Vers., but] from this point, when “ye are not willing to let Me go.” This itself was His path to glory. The idea being expressed without a copulative conjunction, is thereby rendered emphatic.[251]—Ὁ ΥἹῸς ΤΟῦ ἈΝΘΡΏΠΟΥ, the Son of Man) This is the last place where Jesus calls Himself the Son of Man.

[251] But ABDLXab Vulg. and 2 MSS. of Memph. read δὲ after ἀπὸ τοῦ νῦν. Orig. 3,715b, and c, read ἀπὸ γὰρ τοῦ νῦν.—E. and T.

Verse 69. - Hereafter shall the Son of man sit on the right hand of the power of God. Jesus decided to put an end to this weary and useless trial, and supplied his judges with the evidence they were seeking to extort from him. The Master's words would recall to the teachers of Israel, sitting as his judges, the words of their loved prophet Daniel (Daniel 7:13, 14). These solemn words of his were, and they perfectly understood them as such, a claim on the part of the Prisoner who stood before them - a direct claim to Divine glory. Luke 22:69
