Your Sabbath Questions Answered

Doesn't 1 Corinthians 16 prove the Sabbath was changed?

In 1 Corinthians 16:1–3, the apostle Paul writes,

“Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I have given orders to the churches of Galatia, so you must do also: On the first day of the week let each one of you lay something aside, storing up as he may prosper, that there be no collections when I come. And when I come, whomever you approve by your letters I will send to bear your gift to Jerusalem.”

In this passage, the apostle was writing a special appeal to the churches in Asia Minor. Famine conditions were not unusual in areas of the Middle East (see Acts 11:28–30), and at the time, many of ...

Hasn't the calendar been changed?

Actually, we can be positive that our seventh day is the same day Jesus observed when He was here on Earth—the day He kept every week as the Sabbath. (See Luke 4:16.) The days of the week have never been confused. Here’s why some people ask this question …

Before 1582, the world went by the Julian calendar, named for the Roman Emperor Julius Caesar, who implemented it in 46 BC. The Julian calendar had calculated that it takes the earth 365-¼ days to orbit the sun. However, it actually takes about eleven minutes less than that. Those eleven minutes accumulated each year until, by 1582, the calendar was 10 days out of harmony with the solar system.

Doesn’t Hebrews 4 mean Jesus is our Sabbath rest?

Some teach that Hebrews 4 defines the seventh-day Sabbath commandment in the Decalogue as a shadow-type law pointing forward to a spiritual rest in Christ. They view the Sabbath in the same way the Old Testament sacrifices pointed forward to Christ’s atoning death on the cross. They teach that once we have found “spiritual rest” in Christ, we no longer need to observe the Sabbath day, and that keeping the seventh day is a form of bondage and an act of personal works.

It is true that the primary message of Hebrews 4 is to emphasize the believer’s rest of grace. The main point in Hebrews 3:7–4:11 is for Jewish Christians to persevere in faith and not fall into unbelief ...

Is it necessary to go to church on the Sabbath?

It's true that when God first instituted the Sabbath in Eden, He made no mention of going to church on that day; He just set it aside for a holy purpose, which He would expand upon at a later time. (See Genesis 2:1-3.) And in Exodus, He did indeed give us more details about the specifics of that holy day in the Ten Commandments. Still, the Ten Commandments give no instruction that we are to gather together for worship on that day. They just give guidelines on what it means to keep it holy. (See Exodus 20:8–11.)

But as we move forward in Scripture, we come across an enlightening verse in Leviticus: “Six days shall work be done, but the seventh day is a Sabbath of solemn rest, a holy convocation. ...

Wasn't the Sabbath made only for the Jews?

Multitudes of Christians refer to the seventh-day Sabbath as the “Jewish Sabbath,” but there is no such expression in the Bible.

It is called “the Sabbath of the Lord” (Exodus 20:10), for instance, but never “the Sabbath of the Jews.” Luke was a Gentile writer of the New Testament and often made reference to things that were peculiarly Jewish—he wrote of the “nation of the Jews,” the people of the Jews, the “land of the Jews,” and the “synagogue of the Jews” (Acts 10:22; 12:11; 10:39; 14:1). However, Luke never referred to the “Sabbath of the Jews” although he mentioned ...

Are we still under the law?

This question—Are we still under the law?—is often asked in an effort to diminish the law of God in the life of the Christian. It is said, “Since we are not under law but under grace, we do not need to keep the Ten Commandments any longer.”

But is this a valid point?

The Bible certainly does say that we are not under law, but does that imply that we are free from the obligation to obey it? The passage is found in Romans 6:14, 15: “Sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace.”

How easily we could prevent confusion if we accepted exactly what the Bible says. Paul ...

Isn't there a new law of Christ?

Many question the continued validity of the Ten Commandments in the Christian's life based on what Jesus says in John 13:34: “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another” (John 13:34). Let’s take a closer look at its significance …

When a lawyer asked Jesus which was the greatest commandment in the law, Jesus replied: “ ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.' This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets" (Matthew ...
