The Sabbath Series

“If you turn back your foot from the Sabbath,
    from doing your pleasure on my holy day,
and call the Sabbath a delight
    and the holy day of the Lord honorable;
if you honor it, not going your own ways,
    or seeking your own pleasure, or talking idly;
then you shall take delight in the Lord,
    and I will make you ride on the heights of the earth;
I will feed you with the heritage of Jacob your father,
    for the mouth of the Lord has spoken.”

Isaiah 58:13-14

Today many are deceived on the nature of the Sabbath, both on the side of legalism and also on the side of believing Christians no longer have to celebrate the Sabbath. In this comprehensive series we will do a deep dive into the history of the Sabbath beginning at creation, continuing through the Old Testament and up until Jesus’ time — as well as important history following the New Testament and into the modern era. Our goal will be to answer several key questions surrounding the Sabbath and its practice so that you can walk the narrow road between opposing errors.
