1 Samuel 20–22
I don’t know whether the account in chapter 21 sounded familiar to you but in Luke 6:1–11 (also in Matthew 12:1–14 & Mark 2:23–3:6), there’s the story of Jesus rebuking the Pharisees for not understanding the law and for not seeing Jesus for who he was. He reminded them of what David did in chapter 21 when he and his men ate consecrated bread, which was against the law (only priests were meant to eat the bread).
It got me wondering about the link that Jesus had made… How does what David did in eating the consecrated bread explain why Jesus and disciples were able to eat grain on the Sabbath? How did it explain why Jesus was “Lord of the Sabbath”? Any thoughts…?
