One of the strangest things that I have
encountered is the belief that Adam and Eve were Jewish. Funny
you say? Try asking someone about the Sabbath
and they will say, “It is for the Jews.” However, when God gave it,
not a single Jew was around, just Adam and Eve and neither one was
Jewish. Whose Sabbath is it anyway? And who was it given for?
was the Sabbath instituted?
the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. And
on the seventh day _____ ended his work which he had made; and he
rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. And God
blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it.”
The crowning act of creation was the Sabbath.

Sabbath was made for ______,
and not man for the Sabbath.”
did God make it special?
the seventh day, and __________
it.” (Gen. 2:3). “The LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all
that in them is, and ___________
the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day, and
it.” (Ex. 20:11)
NOTE: Only the Sabbath day is blessed, sanctified and hallowed.
the blessing of the Sabbath be transferred to another day?
let it please thee to bless the house of thy servant, that it may be
before thee for ever: for
thou _________, O LORD, and it shall be blessed ___
(1 Chron. 17:27)
is the Sabbath a sign of?
“Verily my sabbaths ye shall keep: for it
is a sign between me and you
throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am
the _______ that doth __________ ___.”
circumcision which was given to the Jewish nation, the Sabbath is the
only think that is stated as a sign between God and His people.
What was Jesus’ Sabbath
“And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his
custom was, He _______ into the ___________ on the Sabbath day, and stood up for to read.” (Luke 4:16)
did the followers of Christ do on the Sabbath after His death?
“And the women also, which came with him
from Galilee, followed after, and beheld the sepulchre, and how his
body was laid. And they returned, and prepared spices and ointments;
and _____ the ________ day according to the commandment.” (Luke 23:55, 56)
day did Paul keep, after Christ death, resurrection and ascension?
“And he reasoned in the synagogue every _________, and persuaded the Jews and the Greek.” (Acts 18:4)
day did New Testament Gentile Christians keep?
“And when the Jews were gone out of the
synagogue, the ________ besought that these words might be preached to
them the next Sabbath. And the next _________ day came almost
the whole city together to hear the word of
God.” (Acts 13:42, 44)
NOTE: Some teach that New Testament Christians worshipped on a
different day from the Jews; however, this is not true. Jews and
Gentiles worshipped on the same day (Sabbath) and the same place.
to the Bible, the Sabbath is found between which two days?
"And that day was the ____________, and the
Sabbath drew on" (Luke 23:54). “And when the Sabbath was past, Mary
Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, had bought
sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him. And very early in
the morning the ______ day of the week, they came unto the
sepulchre at the rising of the sun.” (Mark 16:1, 2).
NOTE 1: The
Sabbath of the New Testament is found between Friday, the preparation
day and Sunday, the first day of the week.
ministers attempt to say that when the text says, “When the Sabbath
was past,” that it meant that the seventh day Sabbath had ended and a
new Sabbath was instituted. The only problem, however, is that Paul;
some thirty years later not only kept the seventh day Sabbath, but
also taught the Gentiles to observe it.
do the wicked treat the Sabbath?
“______ at her Sabbaths.”
“_________ the Sabbath day.”
“_____ their eyes from my Sabbaths.”
the Sabbath ever end?
“For as the ____ ________ and the ____ ______, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the LORD, so shall your seed and your name remain. And it shall
come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and
from one Sabbath to another, shall
all flesh come to worship before me, saith the LORD.” (Isa. 66:22, 23).
Like God, the Sabbath is eternal. We will keep it in heaven and the
earth made new.
