One Sabbath Jesus went to eat a meal at the home of tone of the leading Pharisees; and people were watching Jesus closely.
A man whose legs and arms were swollen came to Jesus, and Jesus spoke up and asked the teachers of the Law and the Pharisees, “Does our Law allow healing on the Sabbath or not?”
But they would not say a thing.
Jesus took the man, healed him, and sent him away.
Then he said to them, “If any one of you had a son or an ox that happened to fall in a well on a Sabbath, would you not pull him out at once on the Sabbath itself?
But they were not able to answer him about this.
