Jesus Welcomes Sinners and Eats With Them

Wedding Feast at Cana - Jan Vermeyen
Luke 15
The tax collectors and sinners were all gathering around to hear Jesus.  But the Pharisees and the teachers of the law muttered, "This man welcomes sinners and eats with them."

How many times will the "sinners" be portrayed as seeking after righteousness and the "religious" be seen criticising Jesus before the reader is confronted about their own views of who is the sinner and who is the righteous?
