Jesus And The Sabbath Day Of Rest

Jesus was walking through some wheat fields on the Sabbath.  ( Saturday, The Jewish Day Of Rest )  His disciples felt hungry,  so they began to pick the heads of wheat,  rub them in their hands,  and eat the grain.

There were some Pharisees who were watching this and they said to Jesus,  "Why are your disciples doing what our Law says you cannot do on the Sabbath?"

Jesus answered them,  "Haven't you read what David did when he and his men were hungry?  He went into the house of God,  took the bread offered to God,  ate it,  and gave it to his men to eat.  Yet it is against our Law for anyone except the priest to eat that bread."

AUTHOR'S NOTE:  This happened when David was fleeing from King Saul who wanted to kill him out of jealousy and the reading can be found in the Old Testament Book.....1st Samuel,  Chapter 21,  Verses 1-6.

Jesus continued,  "Or have you not read in the Law of Moses that every Sabbath the priest in the Temple actually break the Sabbath law,  yet they are not guilty?"

AUTHOR'S NOTE:  Jesus refers to the Old Testament Law found in the Book of Numbers,  Chapter 28,  Verses 9-10.  The priests were not preparing the lambs for sacrifice the way it was prescribed in the Law.

Jesus continued,  "I tell you that there is something here greater than the Temple.  The scripture says,

'It is mercy that I want,
not animal sacrifices.'

( Book of Hosea,  Chapter 6,  Verse 6  and )
1st Samuel,  Chapter 15,  Verse 22

If you really knew what this means,  you would not condemn people who are not guilty;  for the Son of Man is the Lord of the Sabbath."  And Jesus concluded,

"The Sabbath was made
for the good of man;
man was not made
for the Sabbath."

( New Testament,  Book Of Matthew,  Chapter 12,  Verses 1-8 )
also found in the Book Of Mark,  Chapter 2,  Verses 23-28
and Luke,  Chapter 6,  Verses 1-5
