The early church kept the Sabbath.

September 5, 2011

As a follow-up to earlier posts showing that early Christians kept the Sabbath, here is an interesting quote I came across.

“Then the spiritual seed of Abraham fled to Pella, on the other side of the Jordan, where they found a safe place of refuge, and could serve their Master and keep his Sabbath” – Eusebius’s “Ecclesiastical History” Book 3, Chap. 5

According to Eusebius, the early Church fled Jerusalem, just before the Romans attacked and destroyed the City circa 66-70 AD.

This reinforces the truth, that the Sabbath still was valid to believers after the death of Christ, and is still valid today.

    Colossians 2:15-17Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

    15 and having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.

    16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: 17 which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.

      Wrong translation, wrong conclusion. ..

        Wrong conclusion, but not wrong translation.
        It just has to be taken in context.

        Col 2:8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.

        Verse 16 is warning the church to not allow PAGANS to judge members on KEEPING the sabbaths or feasts of the Lord.

        18 Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,

        22 Which all are to perish with the using;) after the commandments and doctrines of men?

        The commandments of God are not the doctrines of fleshly minds or of men, but of God.

    What about context of the whole chapter? What about 2Peter3,15-17 ?
    What about Acts 24,14 ?
