Luke 4:16-21 (KJV)

16 And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read.

17 And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written,

18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,

19 To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.

20 And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him.

21 And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.

7 Do not they blaspheme that worthy name by the which ye are called?

UNIFYING PRINCIPLE

Often rules and limitations set by others make it difficult for us to help one another. What causes us to want to help others? Jesus, who is Lord of the Sabbath, teaches that acts of mercy and justice should be practiced all the time.

BIBLICAL EMPHASES:

1. Jesus did not allow the Pharisees to use the Law to prevent Him from doing the work that He was called to do.

2. The Pharisees were determined to oppose Jesus at every opportunity.

3. Jesus created the Sabbath for us, but we are not to use it to justify wrongdoing.

TARGET EMPHASIS

SEEKERS FOR JESUS: Younger students understand the importance of rules and know that it is important to follow them. They are also concerned about being treated fairly.

TEEN SCENE: Older students know that rules are necessary in society and that they help us function properly. These students also value tradition at home and in school settings. Many are not afraid to speak up when they feel that a rule has been broken or does not make sense.

LESSON OVERVIEW

I. Honoring the sabbath (Luke 6:1-5)

Tradition is an important aspect of our lives. So much of what we do and hold dear is steeped in tradition, whether it’s at home or at church. We can’t get away from the need and desire to follow certain customs and habits because they make us feel comfortable. It’s part of who we are as a nation. Sometimes rules function in much the same way. We have rules in our society so that we can function effectively and so that we can protect ourselves and feel secure as we lead our lives. As believers, we have the Word of God as our rule book. We use it to govern and dictate our lives as we work to fulfill God’s purpose in the world. The Bible addresses almost every issue we will ever confront, so we look to the Word for guidance. In other words, the Bible helps us function as effective believers.

However, certain groups in the Bible relied too heavily on the tradition and rules of their time. The Pharisees were one such group. This group of religious zealots prided themselves on following strict laws and rules. They were known for their formal approach to the Law, and they believed in following the Law to the letter—no matter the situation. They deemed themselves special and set apart because of their strict adherence to the Law. They were quick to judge anyone who did not follow the Law exactly.

This legalistic approach often led to clashes with Jesus and His Disciples. In today’s lesson, Jesus and His Disciples are walking through fields on the Sabbath. Along the way, His Disciples pluck some of the kernels, rub them in their hands, and eat them.

This act of eating the kernels was viewed by some as breaking the Sabbath because the Sabbath was supposed to be a day of rest and no work. This was a day set aside to honor God, just as it is still today. They were technically working and not honoring God on this day by eating the kernels.

The Sabbath came about because of the rest God took on the seventh day when He created the earth. He worked six days and rested on the seventh. The Sabbath was a lawful agreement between God and man. So what the Disciples had done was regarded in the Pharisees’ eyes as an illegal act, and they immediately bring it to Jesus’ attention. They question Him about why His followers would do such a thing on the Sabbath: ‘Why are you doing what is unlawful on the Sabbath?’ (v. 2, NIV). The accusation is apparent in the question.

But Jesus, in His infinite wisdom, responds by asking them if they remember what David did when he was hungry. He reminds them that David had entered God’s house and eaten the consecrated bread that only priests were allowed to eat. He even
