Sabbath keeping was the most visible mark of practicing Judaism in First Century Palestine. In one story we are examining on Sunday, Jesus heals a blind man on Sabbath. Many in the Jewish culture of the time would consider such an act a sinful one because Jesus "worked" on the Sabbath. So the question becomes, "Has Jesus broken or kept the law by performing this act? Good sees and works beyond constricted perspectives so that opportunities to restore and anoint are not lost. Do we see this act of healing in that way? Or does fear of breaking with the old - or being open to the new - blind us? Or can we change our perspective so that we are able to see with the heart, rather than living to the letter of the law?
