Matthew 9:11

Context
9:11 When the Pharisees 1  saw this they said to his disciples, “Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?” 2 

1 sn See the note on Pharisees in 3:7.

2 sn The issue here is inappropriate associations. Jews were very careful about personal associations and contact as a matter of ritual cleanliness. Their question borders on an accusation that Jesus is ritually unclean.
