Hey, I've got a question about Matthew 12. In v. 6 Jesus says "I tell you that something greater than the temple is here" and in v. 8 He adds "For the Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath". In my view Jesus was speaking about Himself in those two statements, and Pharisees who heard that, knew that very well. When I consider Jesus' words from Pharisee point of view I think that they should have perceived it as a blapshemy, because Jesus might have been assigning to Himself authority to not keeping the Law.
Therefore my question is - why didn't Pharisees stone Jesus at that very moment? Or at least use that as an accusation during Jesus' judgement in front of Sanhedrin?
God bless you.
