Receiving Jesus Well
Listen Now The Pharisees invite Jesus to dinner but do not treat him well. The normal hospitality that was Jewish custom was not offered to Jesus. A women, a public sinner, barged into the dinner and washed the feet of Jesus with her tears. From this story that Christ calls us to hospitality not hypocrisy. But, the greater teaching is that this public, perhaps a sex offender as an adulteress or prostitute repented and Christ forgave her.
