Sabbath Controversy

From Series: The Gospel According to Mark, Volume 1

Mark 2:23-3:6  (ID: 2685)

The Pharisees viewed keeping God’s law as the only way to win acceptance with God. Accusing Jesus of being unlawful on the Sabbath, they plotted to kill Him because they misunderstood that the Sabbath was given to man for his benefit and blessing. Alistair Begg reminds us that legalism teaches, “I obey, therefore I am accepted,” but Christianity says, “I am accepted, therefore I obey.”


Jesus Is Lord of the Sabbath

23One Sabbath he was going through the grainfields, and as they made their way, his disciples began to pluck heads of grain.
