Controversy Over Sabbath-Labor

Mark 2:23–28; Luke 6:1–5

12 At that time aJesus went through the grainfields on the Sabbath. And His disciples were hungry, and began to bpluck heads of grain and to eat. And when the Pharisees saw it, they said to Him, “Look, Your disciples are doing what is not lawful to do on the Sabbath!”

Or have you not read in the flaw that on the Sabbath the priests in the temple 1profane the Sabbath, and are blameless? Yet I say to you that in this place there is gOne greater than the temple. But if you had known what this means, hI desire mercy and not sacrifice,’ you would not have condemned the guiltless. For the Son of Man is Lord 2even of the Sabbath.”

Therefore it is lawful to do good on the Sabbath.” 13 Then He said to the man, “Stretch out your hand.” And he stretched it out, and it was restored as whole as the other.
