Luke 15:3


15:3 So 1  Jesus 2  told them 3  this parable: 4 

Luke 15:5

15:5 Then 5  when he has found it, he places it on his shoulders, rejoicing.

1 tn Here δέ (de) has been translated as “so” to indicate that Jesus’ telling of the parable is in response to the complaints of the Pharisees and experts in the law.

2 tn Grk “he”; the referent (Jesus) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

3 sn Them means at the minimum the parable is for the leadership, but probably also for those people Jesus accepted, but the leaders regarded as outcasts.

4 tn Grk “parable, saying.” The participle λέγων (legwn) is redundant in contemporary English and has not been translated.

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