In common understanding of the word, it means 'to express a sharp, stern disapproval; to reprove or reprimand'.

The word doesn't appear in Luke 9:21, so I'll give some other Scriptures that show various uses of the word:

a. Matthew 8:26: Jesus gave out a clear command to the elements.

b. Matthew 17:18: Jesus issued a Divine authoritative Command against the Devil.

c. Luke 9:55: Jesus was stern & gave a strong correction to the disciples' ignorance & presumption.

d. Mark 8:33: Jesus scolded Peter (at least the spirit working in & through him), for challenging the mission that Jesus was on. Peter had (in verse 32) rebuked (challenged) Jesus on that point.

So these few examples might show you how the word 'rebuke' was being used during Jesus' Ministry.

Blessings, Robert, in the Wondrous name of Jesus.

"And he straitly charged them, and commanded them to tell no man that thing;"Luk 9:21 (KJVA)

This happened right after Jesus, who asked His disciples, "Whom say the people that I am?" And Peter replied, "Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God."

There is no explicit reason given why Jesus commanded their silence. But the disciples needed to understand who the Messiah really was and exactly what he would do before they were ready to proclaim Jesus as The Christ, The Son of The Living God. But they and the people had an expectation that needed some instruction to be correct.

Even after all the instruction Jesus gave them and three warnings that we was going to have to die, the disciples didn't get it. For instance John records Peter and John running to the tomb after The Resurrection. "Then cometh Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen clothes lie, And the napkin, that was about his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself. Then went in also that other disciple, which came first to the sepulchre, and he saw, and believed. For as yet they knew not the scripture, that he must rise again from the dead."Joh 20:6-9 (KJVA)

And then at the Ascension. "When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel? And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power."Act 1:6-7 (KJVA)
