I came across the website www.sabbathtruth.com about the history of the Sabbath. There seems to be a growing movement concerning the importance of worshipping on Saturday. This website references many of the early fathers of the Church as celebrating the Sabbath of Saturday and attributes the change of the Sabbath from Saturday to Sunday to the Roman Catholic Church.
I have a question about keeping the Sabbath on Sunday instead of Saturday. I know that Sunday is the day of the Lord Jesus Christ's Resurrection & that Sunday represents the eighth day (symbolizing eternity), However, www.SabbathTruth.com claims that the Apostles & disciples of Christ continued to celebrate the Sabbath on Saturday instead of Sunday. Could you please direct me where to find proof that the early Christians & we as Christians today should celebrate the Sabbath on Sunday & not on Saturday? I appreciate any help you can give me on this subject.
If, according to the Holy Bible, the Sabbath day is the seventh day, and Sunday is the first day of the week, then where in the Holy Bible does it say that God changed the Sabbath from Saturday to Sunday? The Holy Bible says that even in Heaven Saturday will be kept as the Sabbath day (Isaiah 66:23).
Was it for political and security reasons that the "Sabbath" was moved to Sunday? Are the following reasons correct: (1) the early church wanted to distinguish itself from the Jews for security reasons and independence reasons; (2) to commemorate the Resurrection of Christ?
When, in church history, was the Sabbath changed to Sunday and why?
