Jesus was a magnet for the broken. Think about all the broken people in scripture who were drawn to Jesus. At the top of list is Zacchaeus, whose encounter with Jesus is found in the Gospel of Luke. He was a chief tax-collector at Jericho and wealthy man. You need to erase from your mind an image of a buttoned-down IRS accountant. In Jesus’ time, tax collectors were more like Tony Soprano, the fictional TV mob boss.
