Ordinary Time 2023: The Medicine of Mercy
Series: Ordinary Time 2023
Speaker: Brian Zahnd
When he was criticized by the Pharisees for eating with sinners, Jesus in effect said, "I hang out with sinners because they're sick and I’m a doctor. If you're not sick, you don't need a doctor, so I guess you're free to ignore me. But these people are sick, and they know it; they've done well to come to a doctor." Jesus is the physician who treats sinners with the medicine of mercy.
