Lord of the Sabbath (John 5:10-16)

Pastor David Zooeff, March 1, 2020
Part of the John: The Gospel of the Son of God series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

This message deals with the aftermath of Jesus' healing of the crippled man by the Pool of Bethesda. Because the religious leaders elevated their tradition above God's Word, they condemn Jesus and even seek His death. Message ends with the reason why we now worship on Sunday instead of Saturday.

John 5:10-16

10The Jews therefore said unto him that was cured, It is the sabbath day: it is not lawful for thee to carry thy bed. 11He answered them, He that made me whole, the same said unto me, Take up thy bed, and walk. 12Then asked they him, What man is that which said unto thee, Take up thy bed, and walk? 13And he that was healed wist not who it was: for Jesus had conveyed himself away, a multitude being in that place. 14Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee. 15The man departed, and told the Jews that it was Jesus, which had made him whole. 16And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to slay him, because he had done these things on the sabbath day. (KJV)
