Lord, Even Over the Sabbath

In this text, we find 2 accounts dealing with the Sabbath. In the first account, Jesus allows His disciples to pick grain to eat on the Sabbath, showing that the needs of God’s people transcend the religious rules the Pharisees had put in place. And in the account of Jesus healing a man with a withered hand on the Sabbath, Jesus shows that He not only has power over diseases, but also that He has authority over the Sabbath. He is Lord, even over the Sabbath.
