Sabbath Definition

Sabbath Definition

The Sabbath is defined by most dictionaries a day of religious observance kept by Jews and some Christian churches such as the Seventh-day Adventist Church which starts from Friday evening (sunset) to Saturday evening (sunset).

Most Christians however go to church on Sunday and most believe that the solemnity of the Sabbath was moved to Sunday.

I have also heard that those that practice witchcraft in the western world call their annual midnight meeting as a Sabbath.

How Come Most Christians Go To Church on Sunday.

It is however quite clear from reading the Scriptures that the Sabbath kept by the Jews and some Christians is the correct day of worship and has been observed for thousands of years by the Jews.

Those who take Sunday to the Sabbath do so because they think mistakenly that the Lord Jesus Christ changed the Sabbath from Saturday to Sunday.

Unfortunately you can read the bible from cover to cover and you will never find any verse that mentions any change of the Sabbath.

On the contrary the Lord Jesus Christ observed Friday sunset to Saturday sunset Sabbath. (see Luke 4:16).

In looking at Luke 4:16 Here we have to take into account the fact that the gospels were written after Christ had ascended to heaven. Therefore if a change had been made we would have been told.
