Last part: Jesus speaks about David

Mark chapter 3

The day for rest

Verses 1-5

Jesus obeyed God, his father, completely. Jesus did only those things that God wanted him to do. Some people were against Jesus. So they were against God too. But these people did not always know that fact.

These people thought that Jesus was doing something bad. They were wrong, because Jesus was doing Godís work. And God never does anything bad. But these people thought that Jesus was not obeying Godís *law. It was Saturday; and the *Jews do not work on that day. That is in Godís *law (Deuteronomy 5:12-15).

Jesus told the people that they should think about the *lawís purpose. God had given his *law so that people would do good things.

And God was still doing good things. It was God who made the man well. This was not against Godís *law. It was the purpose of Godís *law.

But the people who were against Jesus were not happy. They wanted to kill him. They thought that some friends of King Herod would help them.
