Eating with sinners

When Jesus was at dinner in his house, a number of tax collectors and sinners
were also sitting at the table with Jesus and his disciples; for there were many of
them among his followers. When the scribes of the Pharisee party saw him eating
with sinners and tax collectors, they said to his disciples, “Why does he eat with
tax collectors and sinners?” When Jesus heard this he said to them, “It is not the
healthy who need the doctor, but the sick. I did not come to call the virtuous,
but sinners.”
