Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Luke 15:2

_ _ murmured, saying, etc. — took it ill, were scandalized at Him, and insinuated (on the principle that a man is known by the company he keeps) that He must have some secret sympathy with their character. But oh, what a truth of unspeakable preciousness do their lips, as on other occasions, unconsciously utter., Now follow three parables representing the sinner:

(1)_ _ in his stupidity;
(2)_ _ as all-unconscious of his lost condition;
(3)_ _ knowingly and willingly estranged from God [Bengel].

_ _ The first two set forth the seeking love of God; the last, His receiving love [Trench].
