Evolution of Sabbath Pt 2.7

The next significant mention is in the Gospels, and Yeshua is now separating the “fences” from the Torah. They are not guilty, nothing was wrong.

Mat 12:1 NASB – At that time Jesus went through the grainfields on the Sabbath, and His disciples became hungry and began to pick the heads of grain and eat.
Mat 12:2 NASB – But when the Pharisees saw this, they said to Him, “Look, Your disciples do what is not lawful to do on a Sabbath.”
Mat 12:3 NASB – But He said to them, “Have you not read what David did when he became hungry, he and his companions,
Mat 12:4 NASB – how he entered the house of God, and they ate the consecrated bread, which was not lawful for him to eat nor for those with him, but for the priests alone?
Mat 12:5 NASB – “Or have you not read in the Law, that on the Sabbath the priests in the temple break the Sabbath and are innocent?
Mat 12:6 NASB – “But I say to you that something greater than the temple is here.
Mat 12:7 NASB – “But if you had known what this means, ‘I DESIRE COMPASSION, AND NOT A SACRIFICE,’ you would not have condemned the innocent.
Mat 12:8 NASB – “For the Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath.”
At this point, there is a regular experience of Yeshua doing ministry on Sabbath. There is perhaps some practical reason as most people gathered together on this day.
