And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to slay him, because he had done these things on the sabbath day. – John 5:16
Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God. – John 5:18
The text here is John Chapter 5:5-18 there is so much to write about in these verses. Jesus healed a man at the pool of Bethesda on the Sabbath day. This was a huge no no to the Jews. According to them, nobody was allowed to do the slightest bit of work on the Sabbath Day. That included carrying a mans bed.
Jesus changed all of that when He told the man to “Take up thy bed and walk” John 5:11. Doing that, Jesus showed He was God and that He could do anything HE wanted at any time HE wanted.
The Jews seen Jesus as just a man. They were insulted and embarrassed and more than any other miracle Jesus had done, this one was the most offensive to the Jews.
