katapi HOME Luke 15:1-7 - The Parable of the Lost Sheep  Lk.15.1-7 (Peraea)- Mt.18.12-14 | KNSB Contents | notes

15 1 Now the tax collectors and sinners were all drawing near to hear him. 15 2 And the Pharisees and the scribes murmured, saying, "This man receives sinners and eats with them."

15 3 So he told them this parable: 15 4 "What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he has lost one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness, and go after the one which is lost, until he finds it? 15 5 And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing. 15 6 And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and his neighbours, saying to them, 'Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep which was lost.' 15 7 Just so, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance.
