Re:Verse passage – Mark 2:23-28 (day six)
“So the Son of Man is Lord, even over the Sabbath!”-Jesus, Mark 2:28
The pharisees questioning Jesus had to be infuriated with his answer. Jesus never responded in the way they expected; he always had a way of turning the tables, and this time was no different:
“Haven’t you read in the Scriptures what David did…?”
How dare he compare himself to David, they likely thought. Jesus didn’t have to ask them a follow up question, because what was left unsaid was clear enough.
If you won’t condemn David, then why do you condemn me?
If they had ears to hear and eyes to see they would have realized Jesus was in fact greater than David, and even Moses. David was the king after God’s own heart, Jesus is King eternal. Moses merely received the law; Jesus spoke it into existence. He is Lord!
