The Man with the Withered Hand
Another time Jesus went into the synagogue, and a man with a
shrivelled hand was there. Some of them were looking for a
reason to accuse Jesus, so they watched him closely to see if
he would heal him on the Sabbath. Jesus said to the man with
the shrivelled hand, "Stand up in front of everyone."
Then Jesus asked them, "Which is lawful on the Sabbath: to do
good or to do evil, to save life or to kill?" But they remained
He looked around at them in anger and, deeply distressed at
their stubborn hearts, said to the man, "Stretch out your
hand." He stretched it out, and his hand was completely
restored. Then the Pharisees went out and began to plot with
the Herodians how they might kill Jesus.…read more

· Jesus is showing that it is wrong to stick strictly to the Laws
when the Laws allow people to suffer or to die
· The Sabbath Law meant that any healing on the Sabbath
was forbidden so it means that people can get hurt because
other are forbidden from helping them
· This is not what God wanted and is pointing out that the
Laws need changing, Jesus is the new law giver
· People should not suffer during the Sabbath, it is a day of
worship and happiness and being thankful to God, why
should the man wait after the Sabbath to be cured
· Jesus didn't physically heal the man as he did not touch him
so the Pharisees cannot really punish him as he did nothing
wrong…read more

Temple Courts
On reaching Jerusalem, Jesus entered the temple courts
and began driving out those who were buying and selling
there. He overturned the tables of the money changers
and the benches of those selling doves, and would not
allow anyone to carry merchandise through the temple
courts. And as he taught them, he said, "Is it not written:
`My house will be called a house of prayer for all
nations'? But you have made it into a den of robbers.'
The chief priests and the teachers of the law heard this
and began looking for a way to kill him, for they feared
him, because the whole crowd was amazed at his
teaching.…read more

Paying the Imperial Tax to Caesar
Later they sent some of the Pharisees and Herodians to Jesus to
catch him in his words. They came to him and said, "Teacher, we
know that you are a man of integrity. You aren't swayed by others,
because you pay no attention to who they are; but you teach the way
of God in accordance with the truth. Is it right to pay the imperial
taxes to Caesar or not? Should we pay or shouldn't we?"
But Jesus knew their hypocrisy. "Why are you trying to trap me?" he
asked. "Bring me a denarius and let me look at it." They brought the
coin, and he asked them, "Whose image is this? And whose
"Caesar's," they replied.
Then Jesus said to them, "Give back to Caesar what is Caesar's and to
God what is God's."
And they were amazed at him.…read more
