By what method of reasoning did Christ justify acts of mercy on the Sabbath day?

Answer

"Which of you shall have an ass or an ox fallen into a pit, and will not straightway pull him out on the
Sabbath day? And they could not answer Him again to these things." Luke 14: 5, 6. "What man shall there
be among you, that shall have one sheep, and if it fall into a pit on the Sabbath day, will he not lay hold on
it, and lift it out? How much then is a man better than a sheep? Wherefore it is lawful to do well on the
Sabbath days!' Matt. 12: 11,12.
