Jesus is greater than the temple

The logic of Jesus in Matthew 12:1-8:

– The temple is greater than the Sabbath.
– Jesus is greater than the temple.
– Therefore Jesus is greater than the Sabbath.

“If the temple service warrants suspension of the Sabbath, how much more the presence of one greater than the temple?” (Keener, 356)

If exceptions were made for king David, then how much more appropriate is it for exceptions to be made for Jesus and his companions?
