The LORD of the Sabbath
As with today’s political climate, it was no different in the time of Yeshua and the disciples. The corrupt leadership in Jerusalem were looking for anything that they could accuse Yeshua of doing that would conceivably be a violation of the law in order to discredit Him before the people. The Jewish laws regarding the Sabbath were perhaps the most visible and strict set of rules that Jewish society had. The Pharisees and scribes had prescribed a detailed listing of prohibited activities on the Sabbath. The Gospel accounts of the life and ministry of Messiah Yeshua are full of incidents where Yeshua is accused of violating one law or another.
