kjv@Luke:15:1 @ Then drew near unto him all the publicans and sinners for to hear him.

kjv@Luke:15:2 @ And the Pharisees and scribes murmured, saying, This man receiveth sinners, and eateth with them.

kjv@Luke:15:3 @ And he spake this parable unto them, saying,

kjv@Luke:15:4 @ What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it?

kjv@Luke:15:5 @ And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders, rejoicing.

kjv@Luke:15:6 @ And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and neighbours, saying unto them, Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost.

kjv@Luke:15:7 @ I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.

Notes:

The Pharisee and Scribe see as detestable sinners what Jesus sees as lost sheep. They see their obligation to sinners is to stay away. He sees His obligation to go out and save them. As plain as this distinction of faiths appears, one only has to go back into the Old Testament scriptures to find that these civic/religious figures were set up to be shepherds of the flock of Israel themselves and that this has been a constant problem with their leadership all along. They have been judged repeatedly for it. kjv@Ezekiel:34 goes as far as to say that because of these fattened shepherds the flock is driven astray.
