Lord of the Sabbath – Part 1

Speaker: Pastor Ken Burgess
Series: The Gospel of Mark #12
Title: “Lord of the Sabbath – Part 1”
Scripture: Mark 2:23-28
Date: 03-19-17 Sun. AM

Description: What is legalism or a legalist? Legalism is adding to the Bible man-made rules or traditions for salvation or spirituality! A legalist is the one who does it. The Pharisees had developed a system of 613 laws, 365 negative commands and 248 positive laws. By the time Christ came on the scene, they had produced a heartless, cold, and arrogant brand of righteousness. Jesus directly confronted the man-made traditions and rules of the self-righteous Pharisees that added their oral traditions to the Biblical Sabbath.

In this two-part message, Pastor Ken addresses two incidents where Jesus challenged the Pharisees regarding their understanding of the Sabbath. This sermon presents the first example, dealing with plucking corn on the Sabbath.
