Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Mark 9:39

_ _ But Jesus said, Forbid him not: for there is no man which shall do a miracle in my name, that can lightly speak evil of me — soon, that is, readily “speak evil of me.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Mark 9:30-40.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Mark 9:39

Jesus said — Christ here gives us a lovely example of candour and moderation. He was willing to put the best construction on doubtful cases, and to treat as friends those who were not avowed enemies. Perhaps in this instance it was a means of conquering the remainder of prejudice, and perfecting what was wanting in the faith and obedience of these persons. Forbid him not — Neither directly nor indirectly discourage or hinder any man who brings sinners from the power of Satan to God, because he followeth not us, in opinions, modes of worship, or any thing else which does not affect the essence of religion.
