The Lord of the Sabbath
Bible Passage: Matthew 12:1-14, Mark 2:23-3:6, Luke 6:1-11
Over the past couple of weeks we have seen the persecution of Jesus ramp up to new highs. The reason? He healed on the Sabbath. Or at least that is what God’s Word declares the reason the Pharisees desire to persecute Jesus. But, the persecution turned out to be an all out attack against Jesus’ very life when He made Himself equal with God and called God His, personal Father.
