B.W. Johnson Commentary on Luke 13:10-17

From The People's New Testament, B.W. Johnson, 1891

10-17. Behold, a woman who had a spirit of infirmity. This case of healing in the synagogue on the Sabbath is only given by Luke. We do not know when or where it occurred. In Matt. 12:10-13 and Mark 3:1-5, is recorded a similar case. The disease of the woman was probably paralysis. The ruler of the synagogue. The president of the body of elders. Moved with indignation. Because he thought Jesus had broken the Sabbath. The Mosaic law did not forbid healing on the Sabbath, but the "Tradition of the Elders" did. There are six days. He argues that the woman could have been healed on a week day. Thou hypocrite. Because he would help his ox or ass out of trouble on the Sabbath, but would not so help a human being. Whom Satan hath bound. All disease is the offspring of sin, but from Satan came sin.
