Healing on the Sabbath

Jesus healed a man with a paralyzed hand on the Sabbath  An act of good. But the law of the day decided it was OK to plot for Jesus demise on the Sabbath. Such hypocrisy.

Jesus asked them “Is it lawful on the Sabbath to do good or evil, to save life or to kill?” But they were silent.

Why were they silent? Had they answered either way they knew they were trapped. I think they wanted to find any legalistic thing to pin on Jesus that they were willing to deny good acts on the Sabbath just so they could find a charge against him.

Sad, so very sad. To be so close to the living God and yet so very far away.
