Bible: Mark 2:15-17

2:15 As Jesus 1  was having a meal 2  in Levi’s 3  home, many tax collectors 4  and sinners were eating with Jesus and his disciples, for there were many who followed him. 2:16 When the experts in the law 5  and the Pharisees 6  saw that he was eating with sinners and tax collectors, they said to his disciples, “Why does he eat with tax collectors and sinners? 7  2:17 When Jesus heard this he said to them, “Those who are healthy don’t need a physician, but those who are sick do. 8  I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”
