Praise, Prayer & Preaching sermon audio
Listen to the Rev Dr Keith Garner’s sermon from this week’s Praise, Prayer & Preaching service.
By Rev Dr Rick Dacey
On that day, Jesus healed a woman’s back. The leaders didn’t like this because it was a violation of the Sabbath and one of the 10 commandments.
But when it comes to the leaders themselves, they interpret the commandment with flexibility and nuance. They find a whole range of grey areas, exceptions and loopholes in the law, but only for themselves, not for the lady whose back has been bent for 18 years.
Jesus points out the flaws of the leaders when it comes to the Sabbath commandment.
