Luke 6: 1-12

"Now it came about that on a certain Sabbath He (Jesus) was passing through some
grainfields; and His disciples were picking and eating the heads of grain, rubbing
them in their hands."

"But some of the Pharisees said, "Why do you do what is not lawful on the Sabbath?"
And Jesus answering them said, "Have you not even read what David did when he was
hungry, he and those who were with him, how he entered the house of God, and took
and ate the consecrated bread which is not lawful for any to eat except the priests
alone, and gave it to his companions?" And He was saying to them, "The Son of Man
is Lord of the Sabbath."

"And it came about on another Sabbath, that He entered the synagogue and was teaching;
and there was a man there whose right hand was withered. And the scribes and the
Pharisees were watching Him closely, to see if He healed on the Sabbath, in order
that they might find reason to accuse Him. But He knew what they were thinking,
and He said to the man with the withered hand, "Rise and come forward!" And he rose
and came forward. And Jesus said to them, "I ask you, is it lawful on the Sabbath
to do good, or to do harm, to save a life, or to destroy it?" And after looking
around at them all, He said to him, "Stretch out your hand!" And he did so; and
his hand was restored."

"But they themselves were filled with rage, and discussed together what they might
do to Jesus. And it was at this time that He went off to the mountain to pray, and
He spent the whole night in prayer to God." Luke 6:1-12 (NAS)


Who is the Lord of the Sabbath? Why were the

Pharisees wanting to kill Jesus?

Easy-to-Read Version:

"One time on a Sabbath day, Jesus was walking through some grain fields. His followers
picked the grain, rubbed it in their hands, and ate it."

"Some Pharisees said, "Why are you doing that? It is against the law of Moses to
do that on the Sabbath day." Jesus answered, "You have read about what David did
when he and the people with him were hungry. David went into God's house. David
took the bread that was offered to God and ate it. And David gave some of the bread
to the people with him. This was against the law of Moses. The law says that only
the priests can eat that bread." Then Jesus said to the Pharisees, "The Son of Man
is Lord (Master) over the Sabbath day."

"On another Sabbath day Jesus went into the synagogue. Jesus taught the people.
A man with a crippled right hand was there. The teachers of the law and the Pharisees
were waiting to see if Jesus would heal on the Sabbath day. They wanted to see Jesus
do something wrong so that they could accuse him. But Jesus knew what they were
thinking. He said to the man with the crippled hand, "Get up and stand before these
people." The man got up and stood there. Then Jesus said to them, "I ask you, which
thing is right to do on the Sabbath day: to do good, or to do evil? Is it right
to save a life or to destroy one?" Jesus looked around at all of them. Jesus said
to the man, "Let me see your hand." The man put his hand out. His hand was healed."

"The Pharisees and the teachers of the law became very, very angry. They said to
each other, "What can we do to Jesus?" At that time Jesus went out to a mountain
to pray. He stayed there all night praying to God." Luke 6:1-12 (ERV)
