Jesus did not break the Sabbath or the letter of the Law. The Sabbath is part of the commandments and of those commandments Christ declares, "Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in nowise pass from the law." Jesus pointed to examples from the Old Testament, acts that were done on the Sabbath day by those who were in the God's service. "Have ye not read so much as this," He said, "what David did, when himself was an hungered, and they which were with him; how he went into the house of God, and did take and eat the shewbread, . . . which it is not lawful to eat but for the priests alone?" "And He said unto them, The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath." "Have ye not read in the law, how that on the Sabbath days the priests in the temple profane the Sabbath, and are BLAMELESS?" Dont you SEE??? The very underlying foundation of the whole law is love God (first 4 commandments) and love your neighbor (last 6 commandments) LOVE is the very foundation of it.. so how could Jesus allow someone to die or be sick on Sabbath??? They were BLIND and mistook the very object of the Sabbath, the very purpose of it. He said, "If ye had known what this meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice, ye would not have condemned the GUILTLESS." Matt. 12:7. Then Jesus sees the man with the withered hand and its the Sabbath. Jesus asked, "It is LAWFUL to do good on the Sabbath days, or to do evil? to save life, or to kill?" He saith unto the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it out: and his hand was restored whole as the other." Mark 3:4, 5. When asked, "Is it LAWFUL to heal on the Sabbath days?" Jesus answered, "What man shall there be among you, that shall have one sheep, and if it fall into a pit on the Sabbath day, will he not lay hold on it, and lift it out? How much then is a man better than a sheep? Wherefore it is LAWFUL to do well on the Sabbath days." Matt. 12:10-12. Jesus said, "I have kept My Father's commandments, and abide in His love." John 15:10. Jesus NEVER broke the law of the Sabbath. He could say unchallenged, "Which of you convicteth Me of sin?" John 8:46, THAT is the very reason why SO MANY of you are dead set against the commandments...the law... because YOU DONT UNDERSTAND IT!! You view it in a legalistic manner... instead of the way Jesus demonstrated it ought to be kept. Jesus didnt break the law... He couldnt be our sacrifice for sin if he had of.
