Jesus was never offended by a sinner

“When we search the Gospel acounts we never find a place where Jesus was offended by a sinful person.

But there are repeated accounts of his being very offended by the self-righteousness of so-called holy people who setthemselves apart from the rest of humanity in their own eyes. For these people he didn’t even have the time of day, except to warn them of the judgment to come, a judgment brought about by their refusal to see themselves as needy as the next guy.”
-John Fischer, "True Believers Don’t Ask Why"
