A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke
1 While He was going through a field of grain on a sabbath, His disciples were picking the heads of grain, rubbing them in their hands, and eating them.
2 Some Pharisees said, "Why are you doing what is unlawful on the sabbath?"
3 Jesus said to them in reply, "Have you not read what David did when he and those (who were) with him were hungry?
4 (How) he went into the house of God, took the bread of offering, which only the priests could lawfully eat, ate of it, and shared it with his companions."
5 Then He said to them, "The Son of Man is lord of the sabbath."
