1. Mark 2:23–28 (ESV)
  2. Exposition

Do these verses relativize laws?

Mark 2:23–28 (ESV)

23 One Sabbath he was going through the grainfields, and as they made their way, his disciples began to pluck heads of grain.

These verses do not relativize laws and rules, not those concerning the day of rest either. Instead they subordinate those laws and rules to the work of the Master. The day of rest is for the Son of Man and he determines how we are to use it. More than the law is here!1
