Healing or Hypocrisy?

Healing or Hypocrisy?

Luke 14:1-6

,


Jesus asked the experts in the law and Pharisees,
β€œIs it lawful to cure people on the Sabbath or not?”
But they were silent.
So Jesus healed the man and sent him away.

from Luke 14:3-4

.


The Pharisees thought that God's rules were the key to God's favor, so much so that they created additional layers of rules on top of God's commandments, and used them to elevate themselves and degrade others.

Jesus, however, revealed God's heart by healing a man on the Sabbath. The Pharisees could say nothing because the power to heal was clearly from God, and if God healed on the Sabbath it is clearly good to heal on the Sabbath.
