Luke 24:21 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Trusted (ἠλπίζομεν)

More correctly, hoped. Imperfect: were hoping all the while.

Should have redeemed

Rev., more correctly, should redeem (λυτροῦσθαι). See on 1 Peter 1:18.

Beside all this (σὺν πᾶσιν τούτοις)

Lit., with all these things: his betrayal and crucifixion, etc.

To-day is the third day (τρίτην ταύτην ἡμέραν ἄγει σήμερον)

The best texts omit to-day. The phrase forms an idiom which cannot be neatly rendered. Literally it is, "He (Christ) is passing (ἄγει) this day as the third." Rev., It is now the third day since, etc.
