When Jesus saw him lying there and learned that he had been in this condition for a long time, he asked him, “Do you want to get well?”
“Sir,” the invalid replied, “I have no one to help me into the pool when the water is stirred. While I am trying to get in, someone else goes down ahead of me.”
Then Jesus said to him, “Get up! Pick up your mat and walk.” At once the man was cured; he picked up his mat and walked.
The day on which this took place was a Sabbath, and so the Jews said to the man who had been healed, “It is the Sabbath; the law forbids you to carry your mat.”
But he replied, “The man who made me well said to me, “Pick up your mat and walk.’”
So they asked him, “Who is this fellow who told you to pick it up and walk?” The man who was healed had no idea who it was, for Jesus had slipped away into the crowd that was there.
Later Jesus found him at the temple and said to him, “See, you are well again. Stop sinning or something worse may happen to you.” The man went away and told the Jews that it was Jesus who had made him well. (John 5:6-15)
Jesus was a lawbreaker. During the days he lived, only “priests” were legally allowed to heal anyone, or declare someone as “healed.”
So when Jesus began his public ministry and arrived on the scene, he started healing everyone in defiance of the “health laws” of the day. He also continually broke the laws on the “Sabbath,” when no one was supposed to work.
And as we see from the passage in John 5 above, he told others to break the law also.
Jesus knew that these laws were preventing people from being healed, and so he disregarded them.
