7. Because Jesus healed a man on the Sabbath day, and told him to take up his bed and walk, what
did the Jews do?
"Therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to slay Him, because He had done these things on the
Sabbath day." John 5: 16.
NOTE - It is a fact worthy of note that over the question of proper Sabbath observance the Jews
not only persecuted Jesus, but first took counsel to kill Him. Not the least of the malice which finally
culminated in His crucifixion, was engendered over this very question of Sabbath observance. Christ did
not keep the Sabbath according to their ideas of Sabbath-keeping, and so they sought to kill Him. And they
are not alone. Many today are cherishing this same spirit. Because some do not agree with their ideas
regarding the Sabbath, or Sabbath observance, they seek to persecute and oppress them-seek laws, and
alliances with political powers, to compel respect for their views.
