Sermon on Luke 5:33-39 - The Lord of the Sabbath and Biblical Law

With these words, Jesus is not criticizing or abrogating the Law of God. He is criticizing the traditions of the rabbis and, as the Lord Who gave the Law, showing us how to interpret and apply His Law. The Biblical Law of the Sabbath stills stands in the Kingdom of Christ, although the day has been changed from the seventh to the first by the Lord of the Sabbath through His Spirit-endowed Apostles, and its ceremonial trappings have reach a climax in Christ.
