Jesus: Lord of the Sabbath - Nathan Rages

Luke 6:1-11 has two stories both involving Jesus disputing with the Pharisees regarding the Sabbath Day.   
Q1: Why did Jesus encourage Sabbath-related conflicts?
1. To show the proper way of applying God’s Law (v3-4).
2. To expose the wickedness of His enemies (v8-11).
3. To reveal Himself as “Lord of the Sabbath” (v5).

Q2: How should we “keep the Sabbath” today?
1. Realize that it is not required in the New Covenant (Col. 2:16-17).
2. Appreciate God’s wisdom in a 1-day-in-7 rest pattern (Mark 2:27).  
3. Rejoice in Christ’s Gospel as the ultimate Sabbath rest (Heb. 4:1-10).
