Mark 2:13-17 The Calling of Levi (Gospel of Vic Version: 2001)

2.13 And he went out again beside the sea and all the crowd were coming to him and he was teaching them. 14 And as he was going along he saw Levi, the son of Alphaeus the speculative property developer, sitting in his real estate office and he says to him, “

“Follow me!”

”And he arose and was follow- ing him.

And he was eating in the food court of a shopping centre Levi owned, and many failed entrepreneurs and bankers as well as many unemployed young people, refugees and drug dealers were hanging out with Jesus and his discipleship community; for there were many and they were following him.

And when the consultants of the Eco-rats saw that he was hanging around the shopping centre with notorious debtors and entrepreneurs, they were saying to his disciples, “

“Why is he investing in failed entrepreneurs and notorious debtors? Get them “On the Move” or we’ll get security to move them on!” “

17 When Jesus heard he says to them,

“”The healthy have no need of a doctor, only those who are sick. I did not come to call the self sufficient but debtors.””
