Lesson 8 | Click here to print a PDF copy of this lesson
One of the major questions in Christendom today is, “Which day is the Sabbath?” Should it be observed on Saturday, the seventh day of the week according to the commandment (Exodus 20:8-11)? Or, as many believe, on Sunday, the first day of the week, in honor of Christ’s resurrection? Or does it make any difference?
Many believe that Christ authorized the change of the Sabbath from the seventh to the first day of the week. Jesus Himself denies any such intent, and we lack any Scriptural authority for such a change. We must, therefore, look elsewhere for this pretentious authorization.
