Luke 15:2

Context
15:2 But 1  the Pharisees 2  and the experts in the law 3  were complaining, 4  “This man welcomes 5  sinners and eats with them.”

1 tn Here καί (kai) has been translated as “but” to indicate the contrast present in this context.

2 sn See the note on Pharisees in 5:17.

3 tn Or “and the scribes.” See the note on the phrase “experts in the law” in 5:21.

4 tn Or “grumbling”; Grk “were complaining, saying.” The participle λέγοντες (legontes) is redundant in contemporary English and has not been translated.

5 tn Or “accepts,” “receives.” This is not the first time this issue has been raised: Luke 5:27-32; 7:37-50.
