Rules or Ruler

If we don’t recognize Jesus as a Ruler, we won’t be able to understand His actions when He seems to be breaking rules, or when He seems to be instructing us to do so.

Remember to dedicate the Sabbath day: You are to labor six days and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God. You must not do any work—you, your son or daughter, your male or female slave, your livestock, or the foreigner who is within your gates. For the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and everything in them in six days; then He rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and declared it holy.
(Exodus 20:8-11 Holman Christian Standard Bible ®©)

     As He was teaching in one of the synagogues on the Sabbath, a woman was there who had been disabled by a spiritc for over 18 years. She was bent over and could not straighten up at all.d When Jesus saw her, He called out to her “Woman, you are free of your disability.” Then He laid His hands on her, and instantly she was restored and began to glorify God.
     But the leader of the synagogue, indignant because Jesus had healed on the Sabbath, responded by telling the crowd, “There are six days when work should be done; therefore come on those days and be healed and not on the Sabbath day.”
