Jesus is talking to the scribes and Pharisees when He states in Matthew 5:31 – Jesus answered and said to them, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those are who are sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.” In this interchange Jesus was not saying that the Pharisees and scribes had no need of spiritual healing. Instead he was saying that only those who know their spiritual need can be treated. As self-righteous people, the Pharisees would not come for aid, and in their own eyes, did not need a doctor. Sound familiar? Not much has changed in 2,000 years….
