JESUS/YAHSHUA is “Lord of the Sabbath.”

“Keeping the sabbath day to hold it sacred, just as Jehovah your

God commanded you, you are to render service and you must

do all your work six days. But the seventh day is a sabbath to

Jehovah your God. You must not do any work, you nor your

son nor your daughter nor your slave man nor your slave girl

nor your bull nor your ass nor any domestic animal of yours

nor your alien resident who is inside your gates, in order that

your slave man and your slave girl may rest the same as you.”

(Deuteronomy : 5:12-14)

New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures

As important as any of our works or commitments are, even for the Lord,

resting on Sabbath takes precedence.

Even the work of God was not permitted to be elevated above the command

to rest on the Sabbath.

It is to be observed as a perpetual covenant, throughout time and generations.

Why is keeping Sabbath so important?  

Because it’s a special sign between God and His people.  

“Between me and the sons of Israel it is a sign to time indefinite,

because in six days Jehovah made the heavens and the earth

and on the seventh day he rested and proceeded to refresh himself.”

(Exodus 31:17)
