Yeshua spoke up and asked the Torah experts and P'rushim, "Does the Torah allow healing on Shabbat or not?"
But they said nothing. So, taking hold of him, he healed him and sent him away.
To them he said, "Which of you, if a son or an ox falls into a well, will hesitate to haul him out on Shabbat?"
And to these things they could give no answer.
When Yeshua noticed how the guests were choosing for themselves the best seats at the table, he told them this parable:
"When you are invited by someone to a wedding feast, don't sit down in the best seat; because if there is someone more important than you who has been invited,
the person who invited both of you might come and say to you, `Give this man your place.' Then you will be humiliated as you go to take the least important place.
Instead, when you are invited, go and sit in the least important place; so that when the one who invited you comes, he will say to you, `Go on up to a better seat.' Then you will be honored in front of everyone sitting with you.
Because everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but everyone who humbles himself will be exalted."
Yeshua also said to the one who had invited him, "When you give a lunch or a dinner, don't invite your friends, brothers, relatives or rich neighbors; for they may well invite you in return, and that will be your repayment.
Instead, when you have a party, invite poor people, disfigured people, the crippled, the blind!
