Customarily, Shabbat is ushered in by lighting candles shortly before sunset, at halakhically calculated times that change from week to week and from place to place. Observance in Hebrew Scriptures was universally from sixth-day evening to seventh-day evening Neh. The Jewish interpretation usually states that the New Covenant Jer. Like the Jews with Shabbat , they believe that keeping seventh-day Sabbath is a moral responsibility, equal to that of any of the Ten Commandments , that honors God as Creator and Deliverer.
The Christian seventh-day interpretation usually states that Sabbath belongs inherently to all nations Ex.

In this way, St. Ignatius saw believers "no longer observing the [Jewish] Sabbath, but living in the observance of the Lord's Day", and amplified this point as follows: "Let us therefore no longer keep the Sabbath after the Jewish manner, and rejoice in days of idleness But let every one of you keep the Sabbath after a spiritual manner, rejoicing in meditation on the law, not in relaxation of the body, admiring the workmanship of God, and not eating things prepared the day before, nor using lukewarm drinks, and walking within a prescribed space, nor finding delight in dancing and plaudits which have no sense in them.
And after the observance of the Sabbath, let every friend of Christ keep the Lord's Day as a festival, the resurrection-day, the queen and chief of all the days. The Seventh-day Adventist official 28 fundamental beliefs at 20 state:. The beneficent Creator, after the six days of Creation, rested on the seventh day and instituted the Sabbath for all people as a memorial of Creation. The fourth commandment of God's unchangeable law requires the observance of this seventh-day Sabbath as the day of rest, worship, and ministry in harmony with the teaching and practice of Jesus, the Lord of the Sabbath.
The Sabbath is a day of delightful communion with God and one another. It is a symbol of our redemption in Christ, a sign of our sanctification, a token of our allegiance, and a foretaste of our eternal future in God's kingdom.
Joyful observance of this holy time from evening to evening, sunset to sunset, is a celebration of God's creative and redemptive acts. We should observe the seventh day of the week Saturday , from even to even, as the Sabbath of the Lord our God. Evening is at sunset when day ends and another day begins.
No other day has ever been sanctified as the day of rest. The Sabbath Day begins at sundown on Friday and ends at sundown on Saturday. Both Jewish and Christian seventh-day interpretation usually state that Jesus' teachings relate to the Pharisaic position on Sabbath observance, and that Jesus kept seventh-day Sabbath throughout his life on earth. Noticing the rise of blue laws , the Seventh-day Adventist church in particular has traditionally taught that in the end time a coalition of religious and secular authorities will enforce an international Sunday law; church pioneers saw observance of seventh-day Sabbath as a "mark" or "seal" or test of God's people that seals them, even as those who do not observe Sunday rest will be persecuted and killed.
Ellen G. White interpreted Dan. Most Christians worship communally on the first Hebrew or Roman day. In most Christian denominations Roman Catholic , some [ citation needed ] Eastern Orthodox , and most Protestant , the " Lord's Day " Sunday is the fulfillment of the " Sabbath " Catholic Catechism , which is kept in commemoration of the resurrection of Christ , and often celebrated with the Eucharist Catholic Catechism Lord's Day is considered both the first day and the "eighth day" of the seven-day week , symbolizing both first creation and new creation Relatively few Christians regard first-day observance as entailing all of the ordinances of Shabbat.
This interpretation usually states that the Holy Spirit through the Apostles instituted the worship celebration of the first day to commemorate Jesus' resurrection, and that the New Covenant transfers Sabbath-keeping whether defined as rest or communal worship or both to the first day by implication.
Roman Catholics and many Protestants view the first day as a day for assembly for worship , Heb.
In other Protestant denominations, Lord's Day is kept as a rest day with similar rigor as Jewish Sabbath. As it is the law of nature, that, in general, a due proportion of time be set apart for the worship of God; so, in His Word, by a positive, moral, and perpetual commandment binding all men in all ages, He has particularly appointed one day in seven, for a Sabbath, to be kept holy unto him Ex.
This Sabbath is to be kept holy unto the Lord when men, after a due preparing of their hearts, and ordering of their common affairs beforehand, do not only observe an holy rest all the day from their own works, words, and thoughts about their worldly employments and recreations Ex. Likewise, the General Rules of the Methodist Church required "attending upon all the ordinances of God" including "the public worship of God" and prohibited "profaning the day of the Lord, either by doing ordinary work therein or by buying or selling".
The following textual evidence for first-day assembly is usually combined with the notion that the rest day should follow the assembly day to support first-day Sabbatarianism. On the first day of the week usually considered the day of Firstfruits , after Jesus has been raised from the dead Mk. The same time of the week "a week later" NIV or, more literally, "after eight days again" inclusive KJV , Jesus appears to the eleven apostles and others Jn.
After Jesus ascends Acts , on the feast of Pentecost or Shavuot the 50th day from Firstfruits and thus usually calculated as the first day of the week , the Spirit of God is given to the disciples, who baptize 3, people into the apostolic fellowship. Later, on one occasion in Troas , the early Christians meet on the first day Hebrew to break bread and to listen to Christian preaching Acts Paul also states that the churches of Corinth and Galatia should set aside donations on the first day for collection 1 Cor.
Didache AD ? Acts , Other interpreters believe these references do not support the concept of transfer of the seventh-day rest, and some add that they do not sufficiently prove that Sunday observance was an established practice in the primitive New Testament church. By the second century, Justin Martyr stated, "We all gather on the day of the sun" recalling both the creation of light and the resurrection ;  and the Epistle of Barnabas on Is.
Ethiopian Orthodox and Eritrean Orthodox Christians both of which are branches of Oriental Orthodoxy distinguish between the Sabbath seventh day and Lord's Day first day and observe both. The islands were well to the east of this line, so the missionaries observed the Sabbath on the day sequence of the Western Hemisphere.
However, the Tonga islands used the same days as New Zealand and Australia, so the missionaries were observing the seventh-day Sabbath on the day the secular authorities called Sunday. When the International Date Line was moved, islanders who had been worshiping on Sabbath were suddenly worshiping on Sunday because of a man made international treaty.
After much discussion within the church, it was decided that the islanders would continue to worship on the same day as they always had, even though the name of the day had been changed from Saturday to Sunday by decree. However this situation is not without conflict. Non-Sabbatarians affirm human liberty not to observe a weekly rest or worship day. While keepers of weekly days usually believe in religious liberty,  non-Sabbatarians are particularly free to uphold Sabbath principles, or not, without limiting observance to either Saturday or Sunday.
Some advocate Sabbath rest on any chosen day of the week, and some advocate Sabbath as a symbolic metaphor for rest in Christ; the concept of "Lord's Day" is usually treated as synonymous with "Sabbath". The non-Sabbatarian interpretation usually states that Jesus' obedience and the New Covenant fulfilled the laws of Sabbath, which are thus often considered abolished or abrogated. Some of Jesus' teachings are considered as redefining the Sabbath laws of the Pharisees Lk. Since Jesus is understood to have fulfilled Torah Mk. Non-Sabbatarians can thus exhibit either Christian liberty or antinomianism.
On principles of religious liberty, non-Sabbatarian Jews similarly affirm their freedom not to observe Shabbat as Orthodox Jews do. Non-Sabbatarian Christians also cite 2 Cor. And if what was fading away came with glory, how much greater is the glory of that which lasts! Further, because "love is the fulfillment of the law" Rom. Non-Sabbatarians who affirm that Sabbath-keeping remains for God's people as in Heb. For instance, Irenaeus saw Sabbath rest from secular affairs for one day each week as a sign of the way that Christians were called to permanently devote themselves to God  and an eschatological symbol.
Based on Genesis , Sabbath is considered by seventh-day Sabbatarians to be the first holy day mentioned in the Bible, with God, Adam, and Eve being the first to observe it. In order to reconcile an omnipotent God with a resting on the seventh day of Creation , the notion of active cessation from labor, rather than passive rest, has been regarded as a more consistent reading of God's activity in this passage.
Non-Sabbatarians and many first-day Sabbatarians consider this passage not to have instituted observance of Sabbath, which they place as beginning with Moses and the manna. Walter Brueggemann emphasizes Sabbath is rooted in the history of the Book of Exodus. Jesus' statement, "Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them," is highly debated. Some non-Sabbatarians and others such as Anabaptists believe Jesus greatly reformed the Law and thus that Sabbath could only be justified if it were reaffirmed by Jesus.
Antinomianism , generally regarded as a heresy , holds that, because Jesus accomplished all that was required by the law, thus "fulfilling" it, he made it unnecessary for anyone to do anything further. Strict Sabbatarians follow or expand Augustine 's statement in Reply to Faustus that Jesus empowered his people to obey the law and gave additional commands that furthered its true intentions. This passage is often related to Colossians 2, from which maintenance, transference, or abolition of Sabbath are variously taught.
The English Standard Version at Col. These are a shadow of the things to come, but the substance belongs to Christ. Accordingly, non-Sabbatarians and some first-day Sabbatarians believe this passage indicates Sabbath-keeping is part of an Old Covenant that is not mandatory cf. Additionally, Col.
This he set aside, nailing it to the cross. He disarmed the rulers and authorities and put them to open shame, by triumphing over them in him. First-day Sabbatarians and non-Sabbatarians often regard Sabbath as changed, either to Lord's Day or to spiritual Sabbath, by the Mosaic law being the "record of debt" ESV nailed to the cross.
Some seventh-day Sabbatarians regard only High Sabbaths as abolished due to their foreshadowing the cross, holding it impossible for weekly Sabbath which preceded sin to foreshadow deliverance from sin in the cross.

The unique word sabbatismos in Hebrews is translated "rest" in the Authorized Version and others; "Sabbath rest" in the New International Version and other modern translations; "Sabbatism" a transliteration in the Darby Bible ; "Sabbath observance" in the Scriptures 98 Edition ; and "Sabbath keeping" in the Bible in Basic English.
Andrew Lincoln states, "In each of these places the term denotes the observance or celebration of the Sabbath Thus the writer to the Hebrews is saying that since the time of Joshua an observance of the Sabbath rest has been outstanding. Justin uses sabbatismos in Trypho to mean weekly Sabbath-keeping. However, Justin does not speak of Hebrews 4, instead holding that there is no longer any need for weekly Sabbath-keeping for anyone. Hippolytus of Rome , in the early third century, interpreted the term in Hebrews 4 to have special reference to a millennial Sabbath kingdom after six millennia of labor.
Chrysostom interpreted the term as having reference to three rests: God's rest from His labor on the seventh day, the rest of the Israelites in arriving in Canaan, and the heavenly eschatological rest for the faithful. He argued that the "rest" that "has been outstanding" is the heavenly rest, since the first two rests had already been going on. He also interpreted weekly Sabbath as a symbol of this heavenly rest: "And well did he conclude the argument.
For he said not rest but 'Sabbath-keeping'; calling the kingdom 'Sabbath-keeping,' by the appropriate name, and that which they rejoiced in and were attracted by. For as, on the Sabbath He commands to abstain from all evil things; and that those things only which relate to the Service of God should be done, which things the Priests were wont to accomplish, and whatsoever profits the soul, and nothing else; so also [will it be] then.
Matthew Henry calls this "a rest of grace, and comfort, and holiness, in the gospel state. And a rest in glory, where the people of God shall enjoy the end of their faith, and the object of all their desires It is the rest they shall obtain when the Lord Jesus shall appear from heaven God has always declared man's rest to be in him, and his love to be the only real happiness of the soul. Non-Sabbatarians and some first-day Sabbatarians believe Hebrews 8 indicates Sabbath-keeping is not mandatory, because "in that he saith, a new covenant, he hath made the first old" Heb.
Seventh-day Sabbatarians and strict first-day Sabbatarians believe Hebrews 8 indicates the Law of God including Sabbath remains on the hearts of God's people to be kept, but not fallibly as in the older covenant Heb.
