Indeed, He made such occasions, for He purposely selected the Sabbath as the day on which to do many of
His miracles and works of mercy.

In Capernaum, in the synagogue and on the Sabbath day, He cast the “spirit of an unclean devil”.
out of the man whom it had bound. Later, on the same Sabbath, He healed “Simon's wife's mother” of “a
great fever.” (See Luke 4:30-39.)

Such acts performed on the Sabbath were looked upon with serious question by the Jews, for they
would not bring Him their sick upon the Sabbath, but waited until “even, when the sun did set.” (See Mark
1:32-34; Luke 4:40.)

Jesus, however, continued to correct their views regarding what constituted, real Sabbath keeping,
and to bring about a reform in the observance of the Sabbath. In order to convince them that He spoke with
authority in the matter, He took occasion, in connection with the incident of His disciples' plucking the ears
of corn on the Sabbath, to declare that “the Son of man is Lord even of the Sabbath day.” (See Matthew 12:
18.) In this same connection He gave helpful instruction regarding the nature of true Sabbath keeping.
