Jesus: Divine Bridegroom and Lord of the Sabbath
Passage: Mark 2:18– 3:6
BIG PICTURE: Jesus fulfills Old Testament prophecy, but he explodes Jewish expectations, thus leading to his murder on the cross.
Example 1: Jesus claims to be the divine bridegroom of Old Testament scripture (2:18-22)
Example 2: Jesus claims to be Lord of the Sabbath, a prerogative of God alone. (2:23-3:6)
