Robertson's Word Pictures of the New TestamentLuke 24:12
This entire verse is a Western non-interpolation. This incident is given in complete form in John 18:2-10 and most of the words in this verse are there also. It is of a piece with many items in this chapter about which it is not easy to reach a final conclusion.
- Stooping and looking in (parakupsav).
- First aorist active participle of parakuptw, to stoop besides and peer into. Old verb used also in John 20:5,11; James 1:25; 1 Peter 1:12.
- By themselves (mona).
- Without the body.
- To his home (prov auton).
- Literally, "to himself."
