Christ may indeed have eaten with (unrepentant) sinners at their table (in the hopes of convincing them to repent, as He Himself explains), but I don't recall Him inviting any of them to His, when He partook of the Last Supper, to which only His close circle of disciples were present, all of which have put their sinful lives behind them by that point. ...

The rules by which Jesus and Paul lived were different in many respects because Jesus was "born under the law" ("beholden to the Torah"): [Gal 4:4 NASB] (4) But when the fullness of the time came, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the Law, But Paul, because of the new covenant ratified upon Jesus' death, was not: [Gal ...

The tax gatherers eating together with Jesus were not (yet) brethren in a Christian sense. And one assumes that, like Matthew, they were intent on not stealing in the future.

It would help if the question gave specific verses corresponding to what is claimed in the question. In fact, I don't see anything in 1 Corinthians 15 to indicate that Paul was talking about a physical resurrection. A buried body is like a planted seed; what arises is not the original: But some man will say, How are the dead raised up? and with what body do ...
