Scripture Reading: Pronouncement about the Sabbath
Jesus is referring to one of the ten commandments in this little dialogue with the Pharisees this morning. …I find it very ironic that commandment number four, which is “Remember the Sabbath day and to keep it holy,” is among the top 10 priorities of God as we understand them through God’s law given to us in the Ten Commandments. It’s the only one of God’s commandments of us that has an extension. When you read the whole body of the text where the Ten Commandments are presented, it isn’t just one line.
