Things are not always what they seem. The Parisees accused
Jesus and his apostles of breaking the sabbath by picking grain in
the passage from Mark 2:23 ff. jesus pointed out that they were
hungry and in need of food so they were not breaking the sabbath.
He laid down and important rule, "The sabbath is made for man and
not man for the sabbath." A mother who stays home to care for a
sick child is not sinning by missing church on Sunday, because it is
more important that she care for the sick. We must not make the
law more important than people.
This is bourne out in the second conflict story. A man in the
synagogue had a withered hand. The Pharisees were watching
Jesus closely to see if he would cure on the sabbath. This would
mean that he woujd make God work on the sabbath, an evil thing.
The Pharisees would bind God by their human rules. In answer,
Jesus used a rabbinic argument. If it is lawful to save a life on the
sabbath, then it is lawful to cure on the sabbath. His enemies,
however, were blinded by jealousy and refused to listen to his
arguments. They were just looking for an excuse to get rid of him.
It is important for us to see that Jesus is the reflection of God the
Father, and that he showed us what God is like and how He acted
towards men. It is not so easy for us to accept that we in turn are
reflections of Jesus to others and that we should show them what
Jesus was like and how he acted towards men. Yet Paul writes,
"The life of Christ is always seen in our bodies." (2 Cor. 4:6). This
is quite a challenge for us.
