Jesus and the Outcasts
Transcript of Jesus and the Outcasts
In biblical times tax collectors were considered by the Jews to be traitors and very probably thieves. It was because the land of Israel was occupied by Rome and tax collectors worked for the “enemy” Rome but also over charged people in the hopes of extorting hush money. When some tax collectors came to John to be baptized by him, John the Baptist told them, “Don’t collect any more than you are required to.” (Luke 3:13) They were known as the most despised, disgusting and selfish sinners by the Jews because they sold their national identity, their own people and their noble humanity for the sake of money.
Significance for Christians They came to Jericho. As he and his disciples and a large crowd were leaving Jericho,
Bartimaeus son of Timaeus, a blind beggar, was sitting by the roadside. 47 When he heard that it
was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout out and say, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”
48 Many sternly ordered him to be quiet, but he cried out even more loudly, “Son of David, have
mercy on me!” 49 Jesus stood still and said, “Call him here.” And they called the blind man,
saying to him, “Take heart; get up, he is calling you.” 50 So throwing off his cloak, he sprang up
and came to Jesus. 51 Then Jesus said to him, “What do you want me to do for you?” The blind
man said to him, “My teacher, let me see again.” 52 Jesus said to him, “Go; your faith has made
you well.” Immediately he regained his sight and followed him on the way. jesus was right to do what he did because God said that the temple is a house of pryer not s place for money hounding thieves.
jesus was wrong because he toppled tables and buisness but god said never to use violance because there is always another solution to things. English Standard Version (©2001)
And Jesus entered the temple and drove out all who sold and bought in the temple, and he overturned the tables of the money-changers and the seats of those who sold pigeons. Jesus in the temple
