Matthew 12:8

The response Jesus gives after citing scriptural precedent for His disciples eating grain is also the last reason, and therefore the most compelling reason:
For the Son of Man is lord of the Sabbath.
In effect: I created the Sabbath rest, I made it, I'm God. I make the rules. I am sovereign, who can challenge me or say to me, what have you done?  It harkens back to the words of Nebuchadnezzar when he was speaking about divine soverignty.  I'm the judge of what's right, not you -God.
