As a Christian man with Israeli heritage (I think??) I have been looking into the Shabbat. Please could you give me an opinion regarding the below text.. Iam aware you may not believe Jesus is the Christ but for my own learning please give an opinion..

Mat 12:1 At that season Jesus went on the sabbath day through the grainfields; and his disciples were hungry and began to pluck ears and to eat.
Mat 12:2 But the Pharisees, when they saw it, said unto him, Behold, thy disciples do that which it is not lawful to do upon the sabbath.
Mat 12:3 But he said unto them, Have ye not read what David did, when he was hungry, and they that were with him;
Mat 12:4 how he entered into the house of God, and ate the showbread, which it was not lawful for him to eat, neither for them that were with him, but only for the priests?
Mat 12:5 Or have ye not read in the law, that on the sabbath day the priests in the temple profane the sabbath, and are guiltless?
Mat 12:6 But I say unto you, that one greater than the temple is here.
Mat 12:7 But if ye had known what this meaneth, I desire mercy, and not sacrifice, ye would not have condemned the guiltless.
Mat 12:8 For the Son of man is lord of the sabbath.
Mat 12:9 And he departed thence, and went into their synagogue:
Mat 12:10 and behold, a man having a withered hand. And they asked him, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath day? that they might accuse him.
Mat 12:11 And he said unto them, What man shall there be of you, that shall have one sheep, and if this fall into a pit on the sabbath day, will he not lay hold on it, and lift it out?
Mat 12:12 How much then is a man of more value than a sheep! Wherefore it is lawful to do good on the sabbath day.
Mat 12:13 Then saith he to the man, Stretch forth thy hand. And he stretched it forth; and it was restored whole, as the other.
Mat 12:14 But the Pharisees went out, and took counsel against him, how they might destroy him.
Mat 12:15 And Jesus perceiving it withdrew from thence: and many followed him; and he healed them all
