Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Matthew 12:8

_ _ For the Son of man is Lord even of the sabbath day — In what sense now is the Son of man Lord of the sabbath day? Not surely to abolish it — that surely were a strange lordship, especially just after saying that it was made or instituted for MAN — but to own it, to interpret it, to preside over it, and to ennoble it, by merging it in the “Lord’s Day” (Revelation 1:10), breathing into it an air of liberty and love necessarily unknown before, and thus making it the nearest resemblance to the eternal sabbatism.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Matthew 12:1-13.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Matthew 12:8

For the Son of man — Therefore they are guiltless, were it only on this account, that they act by my authority, and attend on me in my ministry, as the priests attended on God in the temple: is Lord even of the Sabbath — This certainly implies, that the Sabbath was an institution of great and distinguished importance; it may perhaps also refer to that signal act of authority which Christ afterward exerted over it, in changing it from the seventh to the first day of the week. If we suppose here is a transposition of Matthew 12:7-8, then Matthew 12:8 is a proof of Matthew 12:6.
