Q&A

Did Jesus alter the commandment about observing the sabbath?

Question:

In a recent This Rock article (&quot;Changing the Sabbath,&quot; December 1993), you stated that Christ used his authority to alter the sabbath in Matthew 12:8, but a footnote in my Confraternity Version of the Bible says he did not alter the commandment, but urged it be interpreted in a more reasonable way. How could he alter one of the Ten Commandments, anyway?
