Jesus Healing on the Sabbath

“And when He was departed thence, He went into their synagogue: and, behold, there was a man which had his hand withered. And they asked Him, saying, ‘Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath days?’ That they might accuse Him.  And He said unto them, ‘What man shall there be among you, that shall have one sheep, and if it fall into a pit on the sabbath day, will he not lay hold on it, and lift it out?  How much then is a man better than a sheep? Wherefore it is lawful to do well on the sabbath days.’  Then saith He to the man, ‘Stretch forth thine hand.’  And he stretched it forth; and it was restored whole, like as the other.”  ~Jesus healing on the Sabbath (Matthew 12:9-13)
