Dear DEAD HAND, the man with the plan!!
The Man with a Withered Hand, Matthew (12:9-13)
"Moving on from there, he went into THEIR synagogue. And behold, there was a man there who had a withered hand. THEY questioned him, 'Is it lawful
to CURE on the sabbith?' so that they might accuse him. He said to them , 'Which one of you who has a sheep that falls into a pit on the sabbath
will not take hold of it and lift it out? How much more valuable a person is than a sheep. So it is lawful to do good on the sabbath.' Then he said
to the man, 'Stetch out your hand.' He stretched it out, and it was restored as sound as the other. But the Pharisees went out and took counsel
against him to put him to DEATH"
"... but he warned them not to make him known. This was to fulfill what had been spoken through ISAIAH the prophet:
' Behold, my servant whom I have chosen,
MY BELOVED in whom I delight;
I shall place my spirit upon him,
and he will proclaim justice to the Gentiles.
He will not contend or cry out,
nor will anyone hear his voice in the streets.
A bruised reed he will not break,
a smoldering wick he will not quench,
until he brings justice to victory.
And in his name the Gentiles will HOPE.' "
