In John 5 Jesus heals a man who was lame on the Sabbath and the Jews were mad at the man for carrying his mat on the Sabbath and were mad at Jesus for healing on the Sabbath. Jesus claims to be God, He speaks of 2 different resurrections, Jesus speaks of 4 witness as to who He is – John the Baptist, Jesus’ works, the Father, and the Scriptures. The thing that strikes me is that the Jewish leaders were more concerned about the Sabbath day than they were about the man who was healed. Lord, continually remind me to value your people over a day set aside for the to serve man.
