Codex Bezae on the Sabbath

There is an interesting passage at Lk 6:5 in Codex Bezae regarding the Sabbath that reads…

“On the same day seeing some one working on the Sabbath, He said to him: man, if you know what you do, blessed are you; but if you do not know, you are cursed and a transgressor of the law.” 

Any thoughts on the validity of this?

  1. I believe it carries some validity to it. Reformed Theology teaches there are three types of work appropriate for the Sabbath; Works of mercy, Works of ministry, and Works of necessity. Outside of these it would appear other types of work, say for gainful reasons, would be prohibited.

  6. David,

    For some reason it was under my spam protector.
    I don’t have any kind of filtering except spam, and i don’t usually check that as it hasn’t been a problem before. Kind of strange.
