Which Day Of The Week Is The Scriptural Sabbath? 

Which Day Of The Week Is The Scriptural Sabbath? 

Many are confused over the issue, but such confusion is unnecessary. Not only is the answer plain from history and the Scriptures, it is also clear from the names for the seventh day of the week, Saturday, in many languages.

For example, the Spanish word for the seventh day of the week, Saturday, is sabado— the same word for “Sabbath.” In fact, in more than 100 ancient and modern languages the seventh day of the week was named “Sabbath” or its equivalent. 

Following is a list of names for the seventh day of the week, Saturday, in 24 languages in which the root word Sabbath is still easily recognizable.

Such widespread use of forms of the word Sabbath for the seventh day of the week, Saturday, is clear evidence that speakers of these languages understood which day is the Sabbath.

Likewise, the fact that in no language do we see “Sabbath” similarly linked with Sunday, the first day of the week, is an obvious confirmation that this day never was considered the Scriptural Sabbath until later religious leaders tried to substitute Sunday for the true Sabbath day.

One thought on “Which Day Of The Week Is The Scriptural Sabbath? 

  1. Hello Gerald.
    I feel if I follow the Commandment of thou shall labor 6 days and rest on the 7th. Unless it’s appointed by Scripture. I will be doing as commanded. Roman calendar is exactly the problem I have following Scripture. I have been following you and all others in the Hallowed Name of Yahusha and our Father Yahuah. Shalum Ach
