Do you deny that Jesus is Lord of the Sabbath? (Matthew 12:8) no
You got this one right
But you still haven't answered the question
Who is Lord of the Sabbath?
Since Lonnie won't answer the question "Who is Lord of the Sabbath?" let's see what Scripture has to say.
He said to them, “This is what the Lord commanded: ‘Tomorrow is to be a day of sabbath rest, a holy sabbath to the Lord
“Eat it today,” Moses said, “because today is a sabbath to the Lord
Bear in mind that the Lord has given you the Sabbath
but the seventh day is a sabbath to the Lord your God.
Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.
Observe my Sabbaths
and have reverence for my sanctuary. I am the Lord
but the seventh day is a sabbath to the Lord your God
the Lord your God has commanded you to observe the Sabbath day.
According to the Mosaic Law, the LORD of the Sabbath was Yahweh
So when Jesus claims to be Lord of the Sabbath in Matthew 12: 8, Jesus was claiming to be Yahweh.
Just like Jesus was claiming to be Yahweh in John 8:58 when he referred to himself as "I AM".
So we have two verses, Matthew 12:8 and John 8:58, where Jesus not only claims to be God, but He also claims to be Yahweh.
And these aren't the only two places in Scripture where Jesus is equated with Yahweh.
It happens again in John 12:39-41
39 For this reason they could not believe, because, as Isaiah says elsewhere:
40 “He has blinded their eyes
and hardened their hearts,
so they can neither see with their eyes,
nor understand with their hearts,
nor turn—and I would heal them.”
41 Isaiah said this because he saw Jesus’ glory and spoke about him.
When did Isaiah see Jesus' glory?
In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and the train of His robe filled the temple. 2 Above it stood seraphim; each one had six wings: with two he covered his face, with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. 3 And one cried to another and said:
“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord (Yahweh) of hosts;
The whole earth is full of His glory!”
4 And the posts of the door were shaken by the voice of him who cried out, and the house was filled with smoke.
5 So I said:
“Woe is me, for I am undone!
Because I am a man of unclean lips,
And I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips;
For my eyes have seen the King,
The Lord (Yahweh) of hosts.”
Whose glory did Isaiah see in Isaiah 6:1-5
Yes... Isaiah saw the glory of Yahweh.
