Jesus and the Sabbath

Jesus and the Sabbath

By Desmond Ford

“Of whom would you like to inquire regarding your duty as to the Sabbath if given the privilege of choosing. Christ, of course, is the answer. To our joy, there is no dearth of material to find out His mind on this subject. Approximately one chapter in every eight of the Gospel record speaks of Christ’s attitude to the Sabbath.

Our Lord performed many miracles on the holy day and of these, seven are recorded – seven which are amazing in their scope. These miracles include blessings brought to those of varying age and sex and condition, and from each dominant sector of human life – the sacred (in church), the domestic (at home), and in public (along the way). Note the following:

Healing of the demoniac (man) in the synagogue (Mark 1:21-28)

Healing of Simon’s mother-in-law at home (Mark 1:29-31)….”
