…for now, at least.
The NC&Ds had a problem with Jesus’ works of power and compassion, so who did they complain to? Themselves.
They had a problem with His choice of party compatriots, so who did they complain to? His disciples.
They had a problem with His disciples and their joie de vivre, so who did they complain to? Jesus Himself.
Notice, “the problem” was never with themselves and their own super-sanctified attitude. The problem was always something or somebody else, who didn’t match up to their standards or bow down to their authority. Again, hmmmm….
