 We have been told in western religious circles that Jesus of Nazareth and his disciples picked grain on the Sabbath to show and prove that the Sabbath day was no longer binding or needed. Western theology has made it appear that Jesus of Nazareth was in a religious struggle against 'Judaism' and he intended to bring about a 'new religion', which we call today Christianity. Jesus of Nazareth was not in a religious struggle against religious leaders, trying to prove to them that Moses, the law and the Sabbath, was no longer binding. We will seek to prove that the conflict in the field on the Sabbath was not a religious confrontation, but a confrontation dealing with the social political science of a class of people, who were poor and oppressed.
