1 One Shabbat, while Yeshua was passing through some wheat fields, his talmidim began plucking the heads of grain, rubbing them between their hands and eating the seeds.
2 Some of the P'rushim said, "Why are you violating Shabbat?"
3 Yeshua answered them, "Haven't you ever read what David did when he and his companions were hungry?
4 He entered the House of God and took and ate the Bread of the Presence" -- which no one is permitted to eat but the cohanim.
5 "The Son of Man," he concluded, "is Lord of Shabbat."
6 On another Shabbat, when Yeshua had gone into the synagogue and was teaching, a man was there who had a shriveled hand.
7 The Torah-teachers and P'rushim watched Yeshua carefully to see if he would heal on Shabbat, so that they could accuse him of something.
8 But he knew what they were thinking and said to the man with the shriveled hand, "Come up and stand where we can see you!" He got up and stood there.
9 Then Yeshua said to them, "I ask you now: what is permitted on Shabbat? Doing good or doing evil? Saving life or destroying it?"
10 Then, after looking around at all of them, he said to the man, "Hold out your hand." As he held it out, his hand was restored.
11 But the others were filled with fury and began discussing with each other what they could do to Yeshua.
