Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Matthew 18:11

_ _ For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost — or “is lost.” A golden saying, once and again repeated in different forms. Here the connection seems to be, “Since the whole object and errand of the Son of man into the world is to save the lost, take heed lest, by causing offenses, ye lose the saved.” That this is the idea intended we may gather from Matthew 18:14.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Matthew 18:7-14.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Matthew 18:11

Another, and yet a stronger reason for your not despising them is, that I myself came into the world to save them. Luke 19:10.
