Bible: Mark 2:23-28

Lord of the Sabbath

2:23 Jesus 1  was going through the grain fields on a Sabbath, and his disciples began to pick some heads of wheat 2  as they made their way. 2:24 So 3  the Pharisees 4  said to him, “Look, why are they doing what is against the law on the Sabbath? 2:25 He said to them, “Have you never read what David did when he was in need and he and his companions were hungry 2:26 how he entered the house of God when Abiathar was high priest 5  and ate the sacred bread, 6  which is against the law 7  for any but the priests to eat, and also gave it to his companions? 8  2:27 Then 9  he said to them, “The Sabbath was made for people, 10  not people for the Sabbath. 2:28 For this reason the Son of Man is lord 11  even of the Sabbath.”
