Luke 9:49-50 (NLT)
49 John said to Jesus, “Master, we saw someone using your name to cast out demons, but we told him to stop because he isn’t in our group.”
50 But Jesus said, “Don’t stop him! Anyone who is not against you is for you.”
I'm seeking traditions (early church/Roman Catholic/Orthodox) that answer questions such as (but not necessarily including):
- What is this guy's name?
- Who is he in general?
- How and why did he start using Jesus' name to drive out demons?
- Why isn't he one of Jesus' disciples?
Again, I know that some of these questions may not be answered in any ancient tradition, but I mainly just want to know: what are the traditions related to this non-disciple who casts out demons in Jesus' name?
