Jesus and the Sabbath

Another Sabbath meal provides a redemptive opportunity for healing and restoration. This time, it comes in the form of a man whose outward condition betrays a far deeper problem, who in his healing becomes a metaphor for the greater need of humanity. Namely, we all need Sabbath rest from the cravings which exhaust us, a rest found in the Sabbath-keeping Jesus.

(for further study, see Sabbath as Resistance: Saying No to the Culture of Now, by Walter Brueggemann, which is a resource I mention and quote from during the following sermon)


In the Suffering, Yet I Will Praise You
