Luke 14:1-6
1And as He went into the house of one of the chief Pharisees to eat bread on the Sabbath day, it happened that they watched Him. 2And, behold, there was a certain man before Him which had the dropsy. 3And answering, Jesus spoke to the lawyers and Pharisees, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath day? 4And they were silent. And taking him, He healed him and let him go. 5And He answered them, saying, Which of you shall have an ass or an ox fall into a pit and will not immediately pull him out on the Sabbath day? 6And they could not answer Him again as to these things.
  • Due to the legalism of the Pharisees in keeping of the law of Moses, they further hardened their hearts, not rejoicing over the man's healing.
  • The Pharisees also were envious of the great healing miracles Jesus could do and therefore, they choose to criticize rather that to rejoice with the multitudes.
