Transcript of Sabbath
On the day of Jesus' ressurection, which took place on a Sunday, Jesus stayed with two men to have a meal with them. The two men did not recognise who he was, but when they were eating, they 'knew him in the breaking of the bread' (Luke 24:13 - 32). Exactly one week after that happened, Jesus went to his disciples and the Holy Spirit came upon them on the Feast of Pentecost. Then they began to spread the Gospel message in which Jesus told them to, which is why it became a custom of the belivers to meet and break the bread on the first day of the week, Sunday. Now, Sunday has been a significant day to the Christian Church today, since the events of Jesus' ressurection.
What about Christian Sabbath?
According to the
Church, which does not follow Jewish Mosaic laws, the Bible didn’t have any part where it said that God commanded his first followers to rest on the 7th day, which is why Christians today observe the Sabbath as being obsolete. Although Christians prefer to keep it holy, because it is the 4th commandment of the Ten Commandments.
What is Jewish Sabbath?
God's Sabbath in today's Australian society
Jesus Christ said that He was “Lord of the Sabbath” and that “the Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath” (Mark 2:27-28). The purpose of the Sbbath was not to physically rest on a day, and regain strenth and energy to continue to work, although some may mistake it for the true meaning of the Sabbath. In the book of Isaiah, chapters 58 and 59, says that mankind’s separation from God was because of our sins. “Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; nor His ear heavy, that it cannot hear. But your iniquities have separated you from your God; and your sins have hidden His face from you, so that He will not hear” (Isaiah 59:1-2).
Importance of Sabbath in one's life of faith
The importance of Sabbath to one's life of faith is very important because of many reasons. To a Christian, Sabbath is a reason to keep work from being the meaning of life and it is healthy to have a day off in order to enjoy time with family, pray to God, and enjoy life in general. It is also good to set one day aside to observe about work, thinking about what it can and cannot accomplish.
The Sabbath is to help us build a relationship with God!
The Sabbath was a day in a week for rest and worship. God commanded Sabbath because people need to spend time slowly in worship and rest each week. To take the time and use a day's time to rest and worship in our world demonstrates how important God is to us, and it gives us the opportunity to resfresh our spirit.
Christ’s example showed that the Sabbath is a day to physically rest and take time to spiritually rejuvenate oneself. It is meant to be a refreshing break from our work, and it is a time where we can't be taken over by our ordinary daily cares and concerns, which is why it is relevant to today's society.
In the book of Isaiah, the chapters 58 and 59 describes mankind’s separation from God because of our sins. These verses point out the hypocrisy of people who claim to seek God, but they still have their sin and evil intentions within them. Jesus Christ was the one sent by God to teach all of mankind about the Lord, at the sacrifice of his life. God tells us, “The seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God. In it you shall do no work … ” (Exodus 20:10). An ordinary work day was not to be on the Sabbath day, and that it was the day to rest and to discontinue all work from an ordinary day. According to national administration of God’s laws in ancient Israel, the Sabbath was so important to God that He specified that those who violated this command were to be put to death (Exodus 31:14-16; Exodus 35:2).
Why are we commanded to keep the Sabbath day holy?
The Lord has given the Sabbath day for our benefits such as being closer to family, appreciating life and having time to keep our lives in balance. Keeping the Sabbath day and resting when it comes will bring us closer to the Lord and to our families. The Sabbath also allows us to rest from our physical work such as a day job or other activities and worship the Lord.
God had commanded all
people to do no work and to only rest on the 7th day of the week because God finished and rested on the 7th day and did no work. He then made it a part of the Ten Commandments and told the Jewish people to keep it holy. The idea of resting on the 7th day came from the story of creation where God finished creating the universe and rested on the 7th day, so the Jewish people have to rest on the 7th day and do no work.
In this presentation, the concept of Christian Sabbath will be discussed and it will be detailing on how the concept of Sabbath is relevant to Australian society today. This presentation will also include information about the origins of Sabbath and how it is percieved by Christian and Jewish laws, analysing its importance of sustaining life of faith and research on the phenomenon of Sabbath.
