25 And he said unto them, Have ye never read what David did, when he had need, and was an hungred, he, and they that were with him?

26 How he went into the house of God in the days of Abiathar the high priest, and did eat the shewbread, which is not lawful to eat but for the priests, and gave also to them which were with him?

27 And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath:

Mark 2:25-27 KJV

Jesus & The sabbath

Jesus is addressing the Pharisees about the Sabbath because they were trying to accuse Jesus of violating the 4th Commandment of God. Jesus was healing people and His disciples were also picking food to eat on the Sabbath day. To the Pharisees and Scribes, this was considered unlawful. Usually, people would prepare food Friday so they can eat on Saturday without having to do any work. The Sabbath was from Friday Sundown to Saturday Sundown. The commandment was to not do any work and keep it Holy.

Jesus explains the command of the Sabbath that this day was created for man not man for the Sabbath. This day was made so that man can have a day of rest from common work. Jesus explains that it is okay to do good works on the Sabbath.

12 How much better and of more value is a man than a sheep! So it is lawful and allowable to do good on the Sabbath days.

Matthew 12:12 AMPC

20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:

Matthew 24:20 KJV

It is good that we take a day of rest so that our bodies can recover. Overworking can shorten a person's life span. On this day we can spend time in the word and prayer. Also, we should keep everyday holy. We should walk in holiness everyday. The sabbath has always been on a Saturday and should remain that way. Men do not have the authority to change the sabbath day.

75 In holiness (divine consecration) and righteousness [in accordance with the everlasting principles of right] within His presence all the days of our lives.

Luke 1:75 AMPC
