A.M. 4035. A.D. 31.

In this chapter,

(1,) To show that works of necessity and mercy are to be done on the sabbath day, Christ vindicates his disciples for plucking and eating ears of corn thereon, and his own healing a withered hand, Matthew 12:1-13 .

(2,) To avoid the fury of the enraged Pharisees, he withdraws, and is followed by multitudes, all whose sick he heals, and, by his prudence, humility, and self- denial in so doing, fulfils a remarkable prediction of Isaiah , vv14-21.

(3,) He heals a demoniac, who was blind and dumb, and answers the blasphemous cavils of the Pharisees, who imputed his miracles to a compact with Satan, Matthew 12:22-37 .

(4,) He refuses to grant any sign from heaven; shows the wickedness of the Jews in rejecting him, and foretels their impending ruin in the parable of the relapsed demoniac, Matthew 12:38-45 .

(5,) He manifests his affection to his disciples, and preference of obedient believers to his natural relations, Matthew 12:46-50 .
