Your Sabbath Questions Answered

Doesn't Colossians 2:14 wipe out the weekly Sabbath?

Let's first take a look at the apostle Paul's words in Colossians 2:14-17: "Having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross. ...

Shouldn't we keep Sunday in honor of the resurrection?

While many wonderful events in the Bible occurred on certain days of the week, there is no direct command from God to keep them holy.

For instance, Jesus died for our sins on a Friday. That is arguably the most significant event in all of history, marking the moment our death sentence was commuted and our opportunity for salvation assured. But not even one Bible text hints that we should observe this day of such great significance.

However, there is indeed a memorial of the resurrection commanded in the Bible, but it is not keeping Sunday holy. Instead, the apostle Paul wrote, "We were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the ...

There is nothing in Scripture that requires us to keep Sunday rather than Saturday as a holy day.
