Jesus was called the friend of sinners, "Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?". Perhaps this “title” the friend of sinners was the one which pleased him most. The Lord came to redeemer us from our sin, to set us free from the bonds of sin and death and lead us to eternal life.
When the Lord was criticised for eating and drinking with sinners, he almost replied by saying that he was only fulfilling his duty which meant doing the will of the Father.
A doctor visits the sick, his ministrations are not for the healthy. The Lord like a good physician was ready to spend time with his patients: "Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?". He stills waits patiently for the sinner to repent and come to the healing mercy of God.
