Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Mark 9:38

_ _ Mark 9:38-41. Incidental rebuke of John for exclusiveness.

_ _ And John answered him, saying, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name, and he followeth not us: and we forbade him, because he followeth not us — The link of connection here with the foregoing context lies, we apprehend, in the emphatic words which our Lord had just uttered, “in My name.” “Oh,” interposes John — young, warm, but not sufficiently apprehending Christ’s teaching in these matters — “that reminds me of something that we have just done, and we should like to know if we did right. We saw one casting out devils “in Thy name,” and we forbade him, because he followeth not us. Were we right, or were we wrong?” Answer — “Ye were wrong.” “But we did it because he followeth not us.” “No matter.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Mark 9:30-40.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Mark 9:38

And John answered him — As if he had said, But ought we to receive those who follow not us? Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name — Probably this was one of John the Baptist's disciples, who believed in Jesus, though he did not yet associate with our Lord's disciples. And we forbad him, because he followeth not us — How often is the same temper found in us? How readily do we also lust to envy? But how does that spirit become a disciple, much more a minister of the benevolent Jesus! St. Paul had learnt a better temper, when he rejoiced that Christ was preached, even by those who were his personal enemies. But to confine religion to them that follow us, is a narrowness of spirit which we should avoid and abhor. Luke 9:49.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Mark 9:38

(9) And John answered him, saying, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name, and he followeth not us: and we forbad him, because he followeth not us.

(9) God, who normally works through ordinary means, works also extraordinarily as often as it pleases him. But an extraordinary means is tested by the doctrine and the effects.
