Mark 2:23-3:6 Reading the Passage

Lord’s Day Do’s and Don’t's – Mark 2:23-3:6

2 (23) One Sabbath day Jesus was passing through the grain fields; and as his disciples walked along, they began to pick some heads of grain. (24) So the Pharisees said to him, Listen, why are your disciples doing what is unlawful on the Sabbath? (25) And he said to them, Did you never read what David did, when he was in need and was hungry, he and those who were with him? (26) When Abiathar was high priest, he entered into the house of God and ate the showbread, which it is not lawful to eat except for the priests—and he also gave some to those who were with him. (27) Then he said to them, The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath. (28) So the Son of man is Lord even of the Sabbath.

3 Again, on another Sabbath, he entered the synagogue; and there was a man with a shriveled hand. (2) They watched him, to see whether or not he would heal him on the Sabbath day; so that they might accuse him. (3) He said to the man who had the shriveled hand, Stand up. (4) Then he said to them, Is it lawful to do good, or to do harm on the Sabbath day? to save a life, or to kill? But they kept silent. (5) He looked around at them with anger, being deeply aggravated by the hardening of their heart, then he said to the man, Stretch out your hand. And he stretched it out, and his hand was restored. (6) Then the Pharisees went out and immediately began plotting against him with the Herodians, as to how they might get rid of him.
