For 30 October 2009, Friday of 30th week, based on Luke 14:1-6
On one occasion when Jesus was going to the house of a leader of the Pharisees to eat a meal on the sabbath, they were watching him closely. Just then, in front of him, there was a man who had dropsy. And Jesus asked the lawyers and Pharisees, â€œIs it lawful to cure people on the sabbath, or not?â€ But they were silent. So Jesus took him and healed him, and sent him away. Then he said to them, â€œIf one of you has a child or an ox that has fallen into a well, will you not immediately pull it out on a sabbath day?â€ And they could not reply to this.
