Authority over the Sabbath

In response to Jewish leaders, Jesus demonstrated that he is Lord even over the Sabbath Day  - Mark 2:23-3:6.  Religious leaders from Jerusalem objected to Christ’s looseness to their Sabbath traditions, but he used the opportunity to demonstrate that the “ Son of Man ” is “ Lord ” even over  that  day. God did cease His creative activities on the seventh day, but its formal establishment as a regulated day did not occur until the  Torah  was given at Sinai (“ Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy ”).
