Jesus Friend of Sinners

The people to whom Jesus associated with and ministered to were not those who religiously read the Torah, went to the temple, were keepers of the Law, or those who thought themselves to be righteous.

He ministered to those that the pious religious people considered outcasts. As far as their pious sanctimonious minds were concerned, these low-life sinners had nothing to offer Jesus and it was an offense to them that Jesus showed them mercy, compassion and love. The religiously minded thought they had done something to merit salvation and were upset that Jesus was showed more concern for those who had done nothing to merit salvation.

The religiously inclined were closed-minded, self-righteous and considered themselves to be the religious elite because they placed their trust into fulfilling the works of the Law, therefore, there hearts were hardened and closed to the message of Grace that Jesus had to give. While the outcasts accepted it readily.
