“Is it lawful on the Sabbath to do good or to do harm, to save a life or to kill?” Mark 3:4
High Priests, Pharisees, Scribes, Herodians, Caesar, Pilate, and king Herod, desire to kill all of their enemies. That would be Jesus Christ, that would be us. They are enraged that we do not obey their will, but the will of our Father. They are enraged that we do not serve them as kings but instead serve Christ Jesus our King. They are enraged that we do not consider ourselves members of their kingdoms, but only members of the Kingdom of God.
Here we are in the Sabbath rest of Jesus Christ our Lord. But instead of joyfully entering in themselves, the faux-religious and the political are enraged that Jesus does good and cares for people and heals them. These religious men, loyal to the religious system and these political men, loyal to the political system, they do harm, they do kill, and they do evil. They desire to destroy anyone who does not participate in their personal earthly kingdom building. They plot to kill anyone who gets in their way or makes them look bad.
