And he also gave some to his companions.”

And I try to read the bible from a non-religious view point. And I was just sort of struck how Jesus in these verses condoned breaking the law basically. I was quite surprised - not what you'd expect from a morally 'good' character, but then maybe his underlying message was about the heart and its intentions, rather than outward behaviour.

But the bible can be used to justify all sorts of things, and I was thinking I could use this verse to justify breaking the law. "Well Jesus did it, so it's alright as a Christian right?"

Weird. Just some thoughts. I know this isn't really a deep analysis. But on the surface I thought it was pretty amusing.

What would Jesus do? Break the law. Lol
Jesus is a beautiful, peaceful person. Why must you bring negativity upon Him? Jesus is the Son of God. He is God Creator. Along with His Father, He is the sovereign ruler and judge over all mankind. If He says it is ok to pick some heads of grain when someone is hungry and in need on the Sabbath, then it is ok. What He did was right and just. His Father God would not condemn Him. It is ok to break a law for the greater good. Any judge would tell you that. It is the sensible thing to do. And, it is sad to hear you take the side of the Pharisees.
