Jesus Sinners Doth Receive

Luke 15: The tax collectors and sinners crowded around Jesus, soaking up His preaching.  The "good guys" were crabby.  "Eeeeuw -- this guy hangs out with sinners.  He even eats with them.  [shudder]  Yish."

So the exact same words -- "Jesus sinners doth receive" -- have various meanings.  It could be a complaint (as from the scribes and Pharisees).  Or it could be a simple statement of fact.  Or it could be high praise and thanksgiving to a gracious Lord.
