Luke 5:30

Context
5:30 But 1  the Pharisees 2  and their experts in the law 3  complained 4  to his disciples, saying, “Why do you eat and drink with tax collectors and sinners?” 5 

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

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

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

4 tn Or “grumbled”; a term often used in the OT for inappropriate grumbling: Exod 15:24; 16:7-8; Num 14:2, 26-35; 16:11.

5 sn The issue here is inappropriate associations (eat and drink with tax collectors and sinners) and the accusation comes not against Jesus, but his disciples.
