|| Matthew 9:9; Luke 5:27, 28
MK2:13 Now Jesus went outside and again walked along the Sea [of Galilee]. A large crowd followed him and he continued to teach them. MK2:14 As he was walking along he passed by and saw a certain Levi the son of Alphaeus sitting at his tax table. Jesus said to him: “Come follow me!” Instantly Levi rose and followed Jesus. MK2:15 Then it happened that as Jesus was having a meal in Levi’s house, many other tax-collectors and ‘sinners’ also sat together with Jesus and his disciples because there were now many that followed him. MK2:16 But, when the Bible Copyists and the Pharisees observed Jesus eating with these tax-collectors and ‘sinners’ they said to Jesus’ disciples: “How come he eats and drinks with tax-collectors and ‘sinners’?” MK2:17 When Jesus heard this, he said to them: “Those who are well have no need of a doctor, rather the sick do. I came not to call the ‘righteous’ to repentance but rather ‘sinners’.”
