In this passage, Jesus manages to infuriate the religious establishment of His day, and believe it or not, He didn’t even have a Twitter account. He did it simply by going to synagogue on the Sabbath, as any good Jew would do. When He was there, He saw a woman crippled by a demon for some 18 years, and then… He called up front so everyone could see Him heal her affliction.
Did I mention it was the Sabbath?
In doing this, He stuck His finger right in the eye of their customs, and they didn’t like it one bit. The synagogue leader points out that He can heal six days a week, but not on the seventh, which if you think about it, isn’t all that unreasonable, at least on the surface. Sadly, the religious leaders never got much further into anything than the surface.
