If you keep the seventh-day Sabbath, you should also keep the seventh year and the year of jubilee.

If you keep the seventh-day Sabbath, you should also keep the seventh year and the year of jubilee.
The seventh year and the year of jubilee are not mentioned in the Ten Commandments. They were to be kept only “in the land” of Israel and were not once kept in the wilderness before the Israelites entered Canaan. They are parts of that “law of commandments contained in ordinances” (Ephesians 2:15) that ended at the cross.
