Mark 2:13-15 The Passion Translation (TPT)
Jesus Calls Levi (Matthew) to Follow Him
13 Jesus went out to walk near Lake Galilee, and a massive crowed gathered, so he taught them. 14 As he walked along, he found Levi, the son of Alphaeus,[a] sitting at the tax booth, collecting taxes. He approached him and said, “Come follow me.” Immediately he got up from his booth and began to follow Jesus.
15 Later, Jesus and his disciples went to have a meal with Levi. Among the guests in Levi’s home were many tax collectors and notable sinners sharing a meal with Jesus, for there were many kinds of people who followed him.
