New Testament perspectives on the Sabbath and the Sunday:
In order to come to terms with New Testament views on the Sabbath and
the Sunday, an investigation of Jewish schematizarions of time and of the
Sabbath in particular, around the first century A.D. is undertaken. This is
followed by a discussion of relevant New Testament texts on the Sabbath
and the Sunday. Finally, the available information from the New Testament
is placed within the interpretative framework of the "Christ event" which
inaugurated the eschaton, and which also replaced the strong emphasis on
specific holy days within early Christianity. However, the Sunday was
probably chosen by some early Christian groups as the most suitable day to
commemorate the resurrection of Christ.
