Healing on the sabbath

They hoped to destroy him; some wanted to kill him. Why? A blind man could see, a man's withered hand was restored, a crippled woman stood straight, and he had healed them—on the sabbath.

The Pharisees thought Christ Jesus had gone too far. Steeped in ritualism and interpreting the sabbath's requirements from the standpoint of a scholastic and materialistic theology, the indignant Pharisees pointed to Jesus' healing activities as "proof" of his disregard of Mosaic law and Hebrew tradition. Feeling their power and influence threatened by the spiritual emancipation the Saviour was offering, the Pharisees challenged Jesus' ministry and denounced him as a heretic.
