SABBATH BIBLE STUDY
THE LORD'S DAY
The sabbath day in the Bible is a day of rest for the Jewish people. The Lord's day is a day of rest for Christians. The question becomes is the Sabbath day in the Bible and the Lord's day one in the same?
Let us seek truth together, shall we?
Sunday the day that Christians choose to go to Church?
Sunday is known as the Lord's
Day because it's the day that Jesus was resurrected from the

think that Sunday is the Sabbath Day of Rest ...
And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had
made; and He rested on the seventh day from all His
work which He had made. And God blessed the seventh
day, and sanctified it: because that in it He had
rested from all His work which God created and made.
So, it is the seventh day of the week that
is the day that God blessed as the Sabbath day of Rest:

SABBATH BIBLE STUDY LOOKS INTO SCRIPTURE
SABBATH DAY IN THE BIBLE VERSUS THE LORD'S DAY DIFFERENCE
BUT WHAT ABOUT THE OLD TESTAMENT SABBATH DAY OF REST
This is the
fourth commandment that God gave to the children of Israel
concerning the Sabbath:
Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it Holy. Six days
shalt thou labor, and do all thy work: But the seventh
day is the Sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou
shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy
daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy
cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: For
in six days the LORD made Heaven and Earth, the sea,
and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day:
wherefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day, and
And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Speak thou also
unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my
Sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between me
and you throughout your generations; that ye may know
that I am the LORD that doth sanctify you. Ye shall
keep the Sabbath therefore; for it is Holy unto you:
every one that defileth it shall surely be put to
death: for whosoever doeth any work therein, that soul
shall be cut off from among his people. Six days may
work be done; but in the seventh is the Sabbath of
rest, Holy to the LORD: whosoever doeth any work in
the Sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death.
Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the
Sabbath, to observe the Sabbath throughout their
generations, for a perpetual covenant. It is a sign
between me and the children of Israel for ever: for in
six days the LORD made Heaven and Earth, and on the
seventh day He rested, and was refreshed.
the book of Leviticus, you can learn about the solemn feast
days of the Lord that were also named as Sabbath days, and
were to be honored in the same way as the seventh day
Sabbaths. Of course each feast day had its own special
offerings, sacrifices, celebrations and meetings that were
designated for each separate feast. There was even a Sabbath
of the land, where the children of Israel did not plant each
seventh year to give the land rest.

Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is
of Christ. Let no man beguile you of your reward in a
voluntary humility and worshipping of angels,
intruding into those things which he hath not seen,
vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind, And not holding
the Head, from which all the body by joints and bands
having nourishment ministered, and knit together, increaseth with the increase of God. Wherefore if ye
be dead with Christ from the rudiments of the world,
why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to
ordinances, (Touch not; taste not; handle not; Which
all are to perish with the using;) after the
commandments and doctrines of men? Which things have
indeed a shew of wisdom in will worship, and humility,
and neglecting of the body: not in any honour to the
satisfying of the flesh.
SABBATH BIBLE STUDY SEEKS THE TRUTH

TESTAMENT SABBATH DAY OF REST
We are now
living in the days of the New Testament which is the
where God has put the law into our hearts ... Not
necessarily a different law, but rather a spiritual
understanding of the SAME law, that focuses on righteousness
rather than procedure. We are still to keep the Sabbath

the Sabbath Day of Rest is for good, by all means, do good.
lawful to do well on the Sabbath day of Rest.
And, behold, there was a man which had his hand
withered. And they asked Him, saying, Is it lawful to
heal on the Sabbath days? that they might accuse Him.
And He said unto them, What man shall there be among
you, that shall have one sheep, and if it fall into a
pit on the Sabbath day, will he not lay hold on it,
and lift it out? How much then is a man better than a
sheep? Wherefore it is lawful to do well on the
Sabbath days. Then saith He to the man, Stretch forth
thine hand. And he stretched it forth; and it was
restored whole, like as the other.
Day of Rest
was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath Day of Rest. Our loving
Father did not growl inside of Himself, saying, I'll make
one day each week with strict rules so that I can, arghhhhh,
make my children grieved in their heart if they disobey.
Oh, no no
no. Knowing our fragile frame, our Father created the
Sabbath Day of Rest for us to rest from the toil of the world, and
refresh ourselves in holiness for one day, taking special
time to reach out and pull ourselves closer after six days
of the world pulling us away from Him, so that we have the
strength to face another week.
And it came to pass, that He went through the corn
fields on the Sabbath day; and His disciples began, as
they went, to pluck the ears of corn. And the
Pharisees said unto Him, Behold, why do they on the
Sabbath day that which is not lawful? And He said unto
them, Have ye never read what David did, when he had
need, and was an hungred, he, and they that were with
him? How he went into the house of God in the days of
Abiathar the high priest, and did eat the shewbread,
which is not lawful to eat but for the priests, and
gave also to them which were with him? And He said
unto them, The Sabbath was made for man, and not man
for the Sabbath: Therefore the Son of man is Lord also
of the Sabbath.
hard to argue with TRUTH. Jesus silences the accusers:
And He entered again into the synagogue; and there was
a man there which had a withered hand. And they
watched Him, whether He would heal him on the Sabbath
day; that they might accuse Him. And He saith unto the
man which had the withered hand, Stand forth. And He
saith unto them, Is it lawful to do good on the
Sabbath days, or to do evil? to save life, or to kill?
But they held their peace.
... and all
the people rejoiced.
And, behold, there was a woman which had a spirit of
infirmity eighteen years, and was bowed together, and
could in no wise lift up herself. And when Jesus saw
her, He called her to Him, and said unto her, Woman,
thou art loosed from thine infirmity. And He laid His
hands on her: and immediately she was made straight,
and glorified God. And the ruler of the synagogue
answered with indignation, because that Jesus had
healed on the Sabbath day, and said unto the people,
There are six days in which men ought to work: in them
therefore come and be healed, and not on the Sabbath
day. The Lord then answered him, and said, Thou
hypocrite, doth not each one of you on the Sabbath
loose his ox or his ass from the stall, and lead him
away to watering? And ought not this woman, being a
daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound, lo, these
eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the
Sabbath day? And when He had said these things, all
His adversaries were ashamed: and all the people
rejoiced for all the glorious things that were done by
