A few days later Jesus was walking beside the lake again, and the crowds began to gather. Jesus spotted a tax collector at work down there. He moved closer, caught his eye and beckoned to him.  
Matthew:  What? What is it?  
Jesus:  D’you enjoy your work?  
Matthew:  Pays the rent.  
Jesus:  And plenty more besides I should think.  
Matthew:  Yes! You could say that.  
Jesus:  You know what I would say?  
Matthew:  No, what?  
Jesus:  Leave all that and come with me.  
Matthew:  Leave it?  
Jesus:  Yes.  
Matthew:  All this money? But I’m authorised – by the Romans no less! I have a responsibility to collect this.
