Sunday as the Day of the Lord
(Redirected from Days of the week)Jump to navigation Jump to search
"Yom" is the Hebrew word for day.
The Hebrew names for the first six days of the week are just numeric: first day, second day, third day, etc.
"Sabbath" means "day of rest." In the Jewish Scriptures, called the "Old Testament" by Christians, the Commandment to "Keep Holy the Lord's Day" meant the Sabbath day, or Saturday in the pagan name-day system used in English. The sabbath was the seventh day of the week. "Seventh Day" or "Sabbatarian" Christians argue that all who believe that Sunday (the first day of the week) is "the Lord's Day" are sinning against the Commandments.
