Treasury of Scripture

And when they saw it, they all murmured, saying, That he was gone to be guest with a man that is a sinner.

they all.

Luke 5:30
But their scribes and Pharisees murmured against his disciples, saying, Why do ye eat and drink with publicans and sinners?

Luke 7:34,39
The Son of man is come eating and drinking; and ye say, Behold a gluttonous man, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners! …

Luke 15:2
And the Pharisees and scribes murmured, saying, This man receiveth sinners, and eateth with them.









(7) They all murmured.--Better, were all murmuring. It is significant that the murmur was not confined to a special section of rigorous Pharisees, but came from the whole crowd. The chief publican was clearly not popular, and probably the priestly tone of the place (see Note on Luke 19:5) gave additional strength to all caste feelings. We are carried forward in this verse from the promise to the performance. Our Lord was in the house when the murmurs found expression.

With a man that is a sinner.--The term was obviously used from the popular Pharisaic stand-point, as attaching necessarily to the calling of Zacchaeus. He had placed Himself on a level with the heathen or the vilest Jew, and ought to be treated accordingly.

Verse 7. - They all murmured. This very inclusive statement, "they all," shows the general intensely Jewish spirit of the age, narrow and sectarian. The people could not imagine goodness, or earnestness, or generosity in one who served the hateful Roman power. Probably in priestly Jericho this stern exclusive spirit was especially dominant.
