16 When the teachers of the law who were Pharisees saw [Jesus] eating with the "sinners" and tax collectors, they asked His disciples: "Why does He
eat with tax collectors and`sinners'?"
Jesus keeps company with the poor, the weak, the unclean, the outcasts – the sinners! Why? What does this say about Jesus? And what does it say
about His followers?
Jesus’ in verse 17 is telling:
On hearing this, Jesus said to them, "It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners."
And who's to say the Roman's that nailed him to the cross are not forgiven and we are reminded again with Christ's words.
34 Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.
If Christ could forgive those who nailed him to the cross than I could do the same.
