Yet, Jesus was criticized for eating with tax collectors and sinners, for going among the people eating and drinking, for being a winebibber
, for eating when he was hungry and sleeping when he was tired.
Schneider (2007) also points out that Jesus did not live as simply as he could have lived--in comparison to John the Baptist, Jesus' critics called him "a gluttonous man, and a winebibber
, and a friend of publicans and sinners" (Luke 7:31-35).
Moreover, both Matthew 11:19 and again Luke 7:34 record that when Christ broke bread with the joyful, he was called a winebibber
and a glutton.
