Good Friday and Christ’s Sabbath Rest — 7 Comments

  1. Thanks for the comment. Most people who view this site are Christians and hold to a 1st Day of the week Sabbath. Christians began meeting on the first day of the week very early on (Acts 20:7) to celebrate God’s new creation and the resurrection of Christ. I was using the word “Jewish” for clarification. And let us not forget Mark 2:27, “Jesus said to them, ‘The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath.'”

  2. Thank you for the ministry you bring and I look forward to it daily. At Easter we need to reflect on what God did for us when He sent His Only Son to pay for our sins. Have a blessed Easter and may God continue to guide you.

    • Lois. Thanks for your comment. Yes, we all need to reflect on what God did for us when He sent His Only Son. Amen. May you have a blessed Easter as well.

  3. Pat, I LOVE the way you explained the “Last Sabbath of the old creation … ” and why we Christians celebrate the day of rest on the day our dear Lord resurrected! I had never heard the “why” of Sunday as our day of rest. Thank you so much!

    • Thanks Bebe. Christ brought in a new beginning to begin a new creation when He rose from the dead. No more “new wine in old wine skins.” 🙂
