Bible Studies/Sabbath day


Is Saturday the true Sabbath day?

Please excuse the delay in responding to your question.

There is no Biblical presentation of which day in the modern calendar is the Sabbath.  We celebrate Easter Sunday as the time of Jesus's resurrection and see that "now on the first day of the week Mary Magdalene went to the tomb early, while it was still dark, and saw that the stone had been taken away from the tomb." (John 20:1)  In the early church, believers met on "the first day of the week".  Today, in some cultures, Monday is considered the first day of the week.  For Jews this was traditionally considered Saturday.  Christian tradition holds to the Sabbath on Sunday.

The point is that we are to "Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy." (Exodus 20:8, the 4th commandment).  There is a good review of this at:

Using the Bible as my primary source and references in support of it, I am willing to answer questions on subjects from the Old and New Testaments. My faith is based on biblical Christianity and fundamental views from the Bible. I cannot answer questions about specific sects or religious organizations nor can I address religions outside biblical Christianity. As a Christian for over 40 years, I have studied many aspects of the Christian faith. My particular interests are in creation and the natural processes of the world around us and how they fit with the biblical record. I believe that all Scripture is inspired by God. I believe that there are no contradictions in the Bible and that the Bible is complete in telling us as individuals how we should relate to God, Christ, and the Holy Spirit; our purpose on earth; and how we should live. Greek lauguage study has helped me gain additional insight into the New Testament but most of my reference work is done in English and, to a lesser degree, German.


Personal Bible study over the years, lessons delivered in Sunday School settings and messages during organized services, and leading Bible study series have prepared me to be comfortable addressing questions from others.

Formal study includes Greek language. I am a layman without a theological degree. Training has come from sitting under the ministry of excellent Bible teachers for my entire adult life, personal study, and selected courses. Secular educational background includes an undergraduate engineering degree, graduate work in engineering and business, and advanced courses in business and theology.
