Few people were more despised than tax collectors in Jesus’s day. That’s what makes His call to Matthew the tax collector so remarkable–it reveals the depths of His mercy. Yet this kind of mercy is bound to be misunderstood. Religious leaders question Jesus character—what kind of person spends time befriending sinners and tax collectors? Jesus response to them reveals Mercy is central to who He is and what His kingdom is about.
“ But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice.’ For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”
