The Pharisees are that character we love to hate. They aren’t pure evil … they’re just doing what they think is necessary to properly worship God.
However, Jesus comes in and breaks their rules, such as healing a “crippled” woman on the Sabbath. Jesus wants everyone to know that the Sabbath is about life, and what’s more godly than giving life on the Sabbath? Who is out there needing help with whom we can give life?
