Matthew 12:10-14.

Jesus said it's lawful to do good on the Sabbath, but the pharisees said it's awful (v.14-held a council against Him, how they might destroy Him)

What do you think Jesus meant when He said, it's lawful to do good on the Sabbath? How do we arrive at what is lawful and what is awful?

Are there exceptions to what Jesus said, based on the circumstances or are there NO EXCEPTIONS period?

What are your thoughts?

John, you may agree that we should follow what Jesus said. So its our duty to:

2Ti 2:15 Study to show yourself approved to God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

Its lawful to help people on the Sabbath. Visit the sick. Anything of an emergency nature. Simply put, the Sabbath should be dedicated to serving God. Worshiping Him.

Psa 96:9 O worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness: fear before him, all the earth.

Because the Pharisees were legalistic, they falsely accused Christ of Sabbath breaking.

Mat 12:10 And, behold, there was a man which had his hand withered. And they asked him, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath days? that they might accuse him.

Mat 12:11 And he said to them, What man shall there be among you, that shall have one sheep, and if it fall into a pit on the sabbath day, will he not lay hold on it, and lift it out?

Mat 12:12 How much then is a man better than a sheep? Why it is lawful to do well on the sabbath days.

Mat 12:13 Then said he to the man, Stretch forth your hand. And he stretched it forth; and it was restored whole, like as the other.

Mat 12:14 Then the Pharisees went out, and held a council against him, how they might destroy him.

Thais pure wickedness, wanting to kill Christ because He healed on the Sabbath.
I am always full of awe when I see people doing good on the Sabbath rather than just doing lay activities.
I would define it as Jesus did ... "What do you think Jesus meant when He said, it's lawful to do good on the Sabbath? "
it is very good and lawful to do good on the sabbath.
