Then Jesus makes a statement that I am sure must have infuriated the religious leaders. “Did not Moses give you the law, and yet none of you keepeth the law? Why go ye about to kill me?” Wow! That is a loaded question! The very fact that they wanted to kill Jesus shows what kind of heart they had. Their heart was cold as ice, and blacker than the darkest night! They were deliberately breaking one of the Ten Commandments. Note http://ref.ly/Ex20.13. The heat is on! They claimed that Jesus is filled with a demon. They asked Him who is seeking to kill Him. The Jewish leaders had stubborn wills. They would not submit to the Lord. They lacked understanding because they were lost. Note the following scriptures:
Jesus goes on to say that He did one miracle, and they are amazed over it. He goes on to say they circumcise a man on the Sabbath (which is work), and they got upset with Him because He healed on the Sabbath! Jesus accuses them of being possessors of the law, yet, untrue to its teachings.
