Darby Bible Translation

World English Bible
It came to pass, when the days were near that he should be taken up, he intently set his face to go to Jerusalem,
Young's Literal Translation

Luke 9:51 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
That he should be received up - Bishop Pearce says: "I think the word αναληψεως must signify, of Jesus's retiring or withdrawing himself, and not of his being received up: because the word συμπληρουσθαι, here used before it, denotes a time completed, which that of his ascension was not then. The sense is, that the time was come, when Jesus was no longer to retire from Judea and the parts about Jerusalem as he had hitherto done; for he had lived altogether in Galilee, lest the Jews should have laid hold on him, before the work of his ministry was ended, and full proofs of his Divine mission given, and some of the prophecies concerning him accomplished. John says, John 7:1 : Jesus walked in Galilee; for he would not walk in Jewry, because the Jews sought to kill him. Let it be observed, that all which follows here in Luke, to Luke 19:45, is represented by him as done by Jesus in his last journey from Galilee to Jerusalem."
He steadfastly set his face - That is, after proper and mature deliberation, he chose now to go up to Jerusalem, and firmly determined to accomplish his design.

After the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, he was taken up into heaven and he sat at the right hand of God.
As they were walking along the road, a man said to him, "I will follow you wherever you go."
Then Jesus went through the towns and villages, teaching as he made his way to Jerusalem.
Now on his way to Jerusalem, Jesus traveled along the border between Samaria and Galilee.
Jesus took the Twelve aside and told them, "We are going up to Jerusalem, and everything that is written by the prophets about the Son of Man will be fulfilled.
While they were listening to this, he went on to tell them a parable, because he was near Jerusalem and the people thought that the kingdom of God was going to appear at once.
After Jesus had said this, he went on ahead, going up to Jerusalem.
