• Sabbath Afternoon│Introduction

The vast majority of Christian denominations observe Sunday as the day of rest and worship (even though the vast majority of Sunday keepers don't really rest on Sunday). Sunday keeping is so prevalent among modern Christians that many believe the day to be the Christian Sabbath.

This was not always the case. On the contrary, as a continuation of the Israelite faith, Christianity did not discard all of the symbols of its parent religion, including the seventh-day sabbath. For a time the only Bible that early Christians had to guide them was the Old Testament. No wonder, then, that the issue of an alternative day of worship was not introduced into Christianity until more than a century after Christ ascended to heaven. Furthermore, it was not until the fourth century, with the edict of Constantine, that Sunday observance became the policy of the dominant church. Unfortunately, even after the Protestant Reformation, almost all Christianity has adhered to keeping Sunday, despite the Bible teaching that the seventh day remains the true Sabbath.
