Dropsy and Sabbath


(1) Luke 14:1-6



(1) Luke 14:1-6

/4:1/ On one occasion when Jesus was going to the house of a leader of the Pharisees to eat a meal on the sabbath, they were watching him closely. /14:2/ Just then, in front of him, there was a man who had dropsy. /14:3/ And Jesus asked the lawyers and Pharisees, "Is it lawful to cure people on the sabbath, or not?" /14:4/ But they were silent. So Jesus took him and healed him, and sent him away. /14:5/ Then he said to them, "If one of you has a child or an ox that has fallen into a well, will you not immediately pull it out on a sabbath day?" /14:6/ And they could not reply to this.
