Evil

Luke 6:6-11 (ESV)
6 On another Sabbath, he entered the synagogue and was teaching, and a man was there whose right hand was withered.
7 And the scribes and the Pharisees watched him, to see whether he would heal on the Sabbath, so that they might find a reason to accuse him.
8 But he knew their thoughts, and he said to the man with the withered hand, “Come and stand here.” And he rose and stood there.
9 And Jesus said to them, “I ask you, is it lawful on the Sabbath to do good or to do harm, to save life or to destroy it?”
10 And after looking around at them all he said to him, “Stretch out your hand.” And he did so, and his hand was restored.
11 But they were filled with fury and discussed with one another what they might do to Jesus.

 Most of the Pharisees were arrogant, greedy, and evil.   They twisted the Law so they could keep the Law.  Jesus entered the Temple and he saw a man with a withered hand. The Pharisees were jealous of Jesus and jealously is pretense to murder. They watched Jesus to see if he  broke or twisted the Law of Sabbath.   Their obsession over the Sabbath was insane.  Jesus told the man to stand in front him and the man complied.  Jesus healed his hand.  Before he healed his hand, he spoke to the Pharisees and asked them if it was good or bad to be healed or harmed on Sabbath.  After he healed the man the Pharisees plotted to destroy Jesus.    They plotted against the sinless man who became sin for us.
