Rebuttal to Dale Ratzlaff
The above link is Part 2 of a online debate between Dale Ratzlaff and Dr. Samuele Bacchiocchi. This is Bacchiocchi’s 2nd reply, in which he addresses points made by Ratzlaff regarding Mark 2 and Hebrews 4.
He concludes by saying:
The conclusion that emerges from the two texts briefly considered is that the New Testament agrees with the Old Testament in viewing the Sabbath as a creation institution intended for mankind. Those who, like Razlaff, attempt to reduce the Sabbath to a Mosaic ordinance given to the Jews, deprive themselves and others of the spiritual, physical, and social renewal God intended the Sabbath to provide.
