Jesus Christ Left the Pharisees Speechless

 

Luke 14:1-6

 

The Pharisees worked hard on the Sabbath.

They carefully planned to trap Jesus Christ.

They invited Him to dinner.  Then they

Brought in a man who had been quite ill.

 

Would Jesus cure the man on the sabbath?

Yes, He did.  He also said that it was

Okay to pull an ass or an ox out

Of a well on the sabbath, happy day.

 

Jesus Christ showed basic human concern.

He humbly showed charity and justice.

Religious freedom is for everyone

Because every person has dignity.

 

God is with us every day of the week.

Crosby sang “Sunday, Monday, or Always.”
