Jesus Heals on the Sabbath
1One Sabbath day Jesus went to eat dinner in the home of a leader of the Pharisees, and the people were watching him closely. 2There was a man there whose arms and legs were swollen.*14:2 Or who had dropsy. 3Jesus asked the Pharisees and experts in religious law, “Is it permitted in the law to heal people on the Sabbath day, or not?” 4When they refused to answer, Jesus touched the sick man and healed him and sent him away. 5Then he turned to them and said, “Which of you doesn’t work on the Sabbath? If your son*14:5 Some manuscripts read donkey. or your cow falls into a pit, don’t you rush to get him out?” 6Again they could not answer.
