Jesus is Lord of the Sabbath (1–5)

In this section Jesus shows that He is Lord of the Sabbath as He removes the extra baggage that the Jews had added to the Sabbath.

The Sabbath was meant to be a day to rest in God’s goodness, while the religious leaders had made it a day of mere religious observance.

Good day to do good (6–11)

The Sabbath was meant to be a day of doing good and showing mercy, while the religious leaders were using it as an occasion to do evil by trying to trap Jesus.

A few good men (12–16)

As Jesus removed all their added Sabbath baggage the opposition to Him increases and so He selects a few good men who can carry on His mission once He is gone.

Now what?

As we rest and rejoice in Jesus on the Sabbath it should fuel us to take His message of mercy to others all week. As we do this, expect opposition. People respond with hostility to Jesus’ mercy.
