[“He is Crazy”]
Key word: Associations
|| Matthew 12:9-14; Luke 6:6-11
MK3:1 Now Jesus entered the synagogue again and there was a man with a withered hand. MK3:2 Everyone was closely watching Jesus to see if he would heal on the Sabbath so that they might bring a charge against him. MK3:3 Then Jesus told the man with the withered hand: “Rise and approach!”
MK3:4 Now Jesus asked the audience: “Is it lawful to do good or harm on the Sabbath? To save a life, or to kill it?” But, everyone remained silent and gave no answer. MK3:5 Then Jesus looked angrily over the whole audience, grieved at the hardness of their hearts. So he said to the man: “Stretch out your hand!” And the man reached out his hand and it was completely restored.
MK3:6 Now the Pharisees walked out of the synagogue and went straight to a consultation with the Herodians in order to plot against Jesus.
 Jesus looked angrily over the whole audience: Or, an angry glance. The Greek word is ORGES and means “wrath.”
 Hardness of their hearts: Or, obstinacy, minds were closed, callousness, indifference to human need.
 Herodians: See notes on Matthew 22:16. [Mark 12:13]
