1 tn Grk “And coming into his…” Here καί (kai) has not been translated because of differences between Greek and English style.

2 sn A touch of drama may be present, as the term calls together can mean a formal celebration (1 Kgs 1:9-10).

3 tn Grk “the”; in context the article is used as a possessive pronoun (ExSyn 215). It occurs before “neighbors” as well (“his friends and his neighbors”) but has not been translated the second time because of English style.

4 tn Here καί (kai) has been translated as “then” to indicate the implied sequence of events within the narrative.

5 tn Grk “the”; in context the article is used as a possessive pronoun (ExSyn 215).

6 sn Rejoice. Besides the theme of pursuing the lost, the other theme of the parable is the joy of finding them.

7 tn Grk “drachma.”
