"In the days of Abiathar the high priest, he entered the house of God and ate the consecrated bread, which is lawful only for priests to eat."
Jesus states that the consecrated bread was "lawful only for priests to eat".
So according to Jesus, David eating consecrated bread was "unlawful".
So as Lord of the Sabbath, Jesus declared that even though picking grain on the Sabbath (like David eating consecrated bread) was "unlawful", it was not sinful... just like David eating consecrated bread was not sinful.
Any CLEAN individual is lawfully able to eat the consecrated bread. The only reason it was only PRIESTS is that they were the only ones that cleaned themselves properly. Read 1 Samuel 21:1-6 The priest had already made it lawful in that he stipulated that the condition was that the men had not been with women...and the bread he was giving him may've been day-old bread to boot!
There exists no law against food in the Decalogue so the comparison you're forcing is not the comparison Christ was making.
There was nothing wrong with Christ and his disciples picking grain because picking grain to eat is not unlawful on the Sabbath or any other day. There is no law against picking grain for PERSONAL consumption. It is, however, unlawful to pick grain for MONETARY gain as that would be considered WORK on the Sabbath.
The grain is not consecrated so it has nothing to do with the point being made by the Pharisees NOR Christ. It was about the ACT of picking grain, the Pharisees considered "work".
You're comparing apples and oranges.
And how do you know what God's will is? Does He speak explicitly into your personal ear that you know?
You're conveniently leaving out the manner in which the NT plainly states how we know what sin is...to your detriment.
True...but when the U.S. congress is debating laws in session, do you believe they are debating the speed law that you're obligated to obey in front of a school or do you believe they are talking about certain laws?
Clearly there is the whole of the law, the Pentateuch. But there exists only ONE law that was written in stone and that Law DOES NOT POINT TO CHRIST AS MESSIAH...it points to Christ as CREATOR. The purpose, then, of that LAW is because God is Creator and therefore deserves worship in the manner of Commands 1-4.
The ceremonial laws, those laws of the temple, the sacrifices that signified the promise that would come in the form of a Messiah, a Lamb of God...THOSE laws pointed to Christ the Lamb.
Those are the laws nailed to the cross.
Which? The 10 commandments, the Ceremonial laws, secular moral laws, federal law, state law, my association laws, the rules/laws that I enforce in my home...?
