John 5: 1-16
"Get up, take up you bed, and walk"

                                        10 So the Jews said to the man who had been healed, "It is the Sabbath, and                                          
                                it is not lawful for you to take up your bed." 11 But he answered them, "The                                            
                                man who healed me, that man said to me, "'Take up your bed, and walk.'"                                               
                                12 They asked him, "Who is the man who said to you, "'Take up your bed,                                               
                                and walk.'?" 13 But the man who was healed did not know who it was, for                                              
                                Jesus had withdrawn, as there was a crowd in the place.  14 Afterward Jesus                                        
                                found him in the temple and said to him, "See, you are well! Sin no more, that                                       
                                nothing worse may happen to you." 15 The man went away and told the Jews                                      
                                that it was Jesus who had healed him. 16 And this is why the Jews were                                                
                                persecuting Jesus, because he was doing these things on the Sabbath.
