The Pharisees considered themselves healthy of all spiritual ailment and Jesus alludes to the commentary; they are not the healthy who need the doctor, but the sick. Likewise Jesus was justifying his conduct. A doctor does not repair in contagion to go visit the body sick, much less had to be repaired in trespass artificial borders, created most of the times a dry religious life of the Pharisee. The one who came to save, which was to heal the souls, had to go to where this same evil to cure him. Behaviour merciful of Jesus overturned in charity was a Picot edge to the Pharisees.
Does perhaps the Pharisees did something to attract the tax collectors and sinners? These, away from spiritual conviction and without preparation to the laws how change their behavior if no one approached them to show them a different way or prepare them ultimately to comply with the law? The Pharisee was not able to do so because his attitude was superb, inhumane and anti-pedagogical. When Jesus says; I want mercy and not sacrifice, alluded to the words of the Prophet Oseas in which Dios proclaims, through the Prophet, who prefers mercy to sacrifice. The Prophet Hosea says Word of God; what I ask of you is love and not sacrifice, knowledge of God and not Jesus holocausts was harshly criticizing materialism Pharisee. The sacrifice is worth the spirit that led, not by the materiality of the rite. Sincerity and not arrogance. Love and not contempt. The Pharisees in the eyes of God were whitened sepulchres.
Jesus makes them see that his work is spiritual mercy. Because I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners this third statement will prove to be an irony against the Pharisees, who were considered amply fair. Call tax collectors and sinners to a realm that only considered theirs, it is an irony to the Pharisees, who would have to bear the phrase of Jesus; Anyone who likewise exalts will be humbled, and he who humbles himself shall be exalted. The Bible says that to be called, Matthew got up and followed him. He left everything, money, home, possessions to follow Jesus. It also followed him with sincerity of heart. Jesus is what he sees in man, their feelings, not what has, or what you have. You could possibly be as Matthew or possibly beam echo little case to the call of Jesus to follow him. You just have to feel in your heart the impulse to follow him and let yourself be carried away by its current. Jesus himself says; If I call you my door, and I open you cenare with you and you with me. God makes you call so you open your heart and receive it, it will give you to change a banquet without require you sacrifice; only love you enough you.
