As Jesus de-parted from that place, he saw a man, named Matthew, sitting at the receipt of customs (for Matthew was a collector of taxes): and he said to him, Follow me. And so Matthew got up straight away, and followed him. They soon gathered at Matthews home for a meal and as Jesus sat down to eat, many publicans and sinners came and sat down with him and his disciples.
So what did the self-righteous do say and think; many in silent contempt: the word gives us this:
Now when the Pharisees saw all this, they said to his disciples (they did not ask Jesus, ever wonder why?), why does your Master sit and eat with publicans and sinners? When Jesus heard that, he said to them, well they (meaning you; publicans, Pharisees the good peoples) that are whole or righteous have no need of a physician, but those that are sick do. So Jesus said to them: (the Pharisees, publicans and the self-righteous), Go all of you and learn what this means, I will have mercy, and not sacrifices: for I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
Those same men were all well versed in the law as they called it, but they could not understand what he said for they were blinded to the simple truth and deaf to its meaning.
Now later we hear and see the following:
To make a long story short there were two blind men who followed him, they kept crying out to him, saying, you son of David, have mercy on us. When he came into the house, these two blind men came to him: and Jesus declared to them (all present). “Do all of you believe that I am able to do this?” They said to him, Yes, Lord. Then he touched their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it so to you. Then their eyes were opened; and Jesus firmly charged them, saying, See that no man knows it. When they were departed, they spread abroad his fame in all that country.
this was done in plain sight he asked a question do you believe so they heard they saw.by Faith. simple truths
