A post unrelated to the sabbath took a turn in that direction yesterday, so I further researched it. This is what I found. Where does it say sabbath means saturday? or Where in the bible does it say so?

1. Sabbath (WebBible™ Encyclopedia) - ChristianAnswers.Net ] [WebBible™ ENCYCLOPEDIA]
description and definition
... Sabbath Hebrew verb: shabbath, meaning "to rest from labor"; the day of rest. The Sabbath is first mentioned as having been instituted in Paradise, when man was in innocence( Gen. 2:2). "The sabbath was made ...

Hebrew verb: shabbath, meaning “to rest from labor”; the day of rest.

Truth shows it really doesn't! Can you prove this wrong?

  • None of that answers why you believe the day we call Saturday is the day God was talking about as the Sabbath.

  • The url you gave doesn't work.
    I most certainly can prove that the Sabbath is the seventh day of the week! Look at the Jews! Which day do they keep? Weren't they God's chosen? Have they been wrong all of this time? Did Constantine have the right to institute a different day? Is man greater than the Creator? Why is the Sabbath the ONLY commandment debated today? Why did God command us to REMEMBER if the day would be lost in history? Why is the ONLY commandment that tells us Whom, why and when to worship is a subject of debate? God said remember because He knew most would want to forget.

    Sabbath does mean a day of rest, but God gave us THE day. He said THE sabbath, not A sabbath. God said we are to honor HIS Sabbath, not just ANY sabbath we want. Jesus never claimed to be a day. Jesus offered us rest, yes, but He didn't come to make the eternal law null and void.

  • The same Sabbath that the Jews keep today is the one God instructed them to keep in the wilderness. They were to teach their children, and their visitors, the importance of keeping it holy (wholy!) I can't understand how people can say that they serve a God Who is loving, omnipotent,exacting and unchanging, but believe He can't keep up with His own day or that He would change that day or that He would accept anything we want to give as true worship. Does anyone remember Cain?

    I'm not going to debate the Sabbath today. People will believe what they want anyway and will attack when under conviction. I'm going to enjoy this day with my God, my friends and family. --Peace and blessings!

  • Saturday (pronounced /ˈsætÉ™rdeɪ/ in the United States or /ˈsætÉ™dɪ/ ( listen) in England ) is the day of the week between Friday and Sunday. Saturday is considered either the sixth or seventh day of the week.

    It was named no later than the second century for the planet (Saturn),[citation needed] which controlled the first hour of that day according to Vettius Valens. The planet was named for the Roman god of agriculture Saturn (Latin Saturnus). It has been called dies Saturni ("Saturn's Day"), through which form it entered into Old English as Sæternesdæg and gradually evolved into the word "Saturday".

  • Saturday is the Sabbath Sunday is the Lord's day

    Answer by gbaby01 at 11:28 AM on Apr. 3, 2010

  • Saturday is the only day of the week in which the English name comes from Roman mythology. The English names of all of the other days of the week come from Germanic polytheism. In India, Saturday is Shanivar, based on Shani, the Vedic god manifested in the planet Saturn. In the Thai solar calendar of Thailand, the day is named from the Pali word for Saturn, and the color associated with Saturday is purple. The Celtic languages also name this day for Saturn: Irish an Satharn or dia Sathuirn, Scottish Gaelic Disathairne, Welsh dydd Sadwrn, Breton Sadorn or disadorn.

    there is a whole lot more but I don't feel like doing that much copy and past

    Answer by gbaby01 at 11:31 AM on Apr. 3, 2010

  • Thank you last anon. She is right. There absolutely no proof Saturday was the intended day. As a matter of fact the proof looks as though that would be Sunday for the day od rest. However nothing proves it was the intended day be god. The days on the calendars change often. As a matter of fact some old cultures consider what we call friday today the last day, while a few others said there was an eighth day. So there is no true proof to who was right and wrong.

    As for the link google bible dictionary if that link did not work. I don't know why it wouldn't it's the link.
