In the Gospel, Jesus heals on the Sabbath as a sign to show that his new teaching has authority and power. It stands as a direct contrast to the religious rules and ideas of the Pharisees who misunderstand the law. This event shows that Jesus has come to give fresh insight into God’s law and for the purpose of faith and religion. God has come to set people free from oppression.
