Luke 5:32

5:32 I have not come 1  to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.” 2 

Luke 19:10

19:10 For the Son of Man came 3  to seek and to save the lost.”

1 sn I have not come is another commission statement by Jesus; see 4:43-44.

2 sn Though parallels exist to this saying (Matt 9:13; Mark 2:17), only Luke has this last phrase but sinners to repentance. Repentance is a frequent topic in Luke’s Gospel: 3:3, 8; 13:1-5; 15:7, 10; 16:30; 17:3-4; 24:47.

3 sn The Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost is Jesus’ mission succinctly defined. See Luke 15:1-32.
