"Does God work on the Sabbath?" (Alleged Contradiction #E6321)
And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.
And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to slay him, because he had done these things on the sabbath day. But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.
God rested on the seventh day of creation. Later, he healed people on the Sabbath day.
Jesus said, “The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath” (Mark 2:27). Jesus pointed out that people would understandably help their animals out of a ditch on the Sabbath (Luke 14:5). How much more understandable is it for Jesus Christ to help a person who is in trouble on the Sabbath day?
