The commission of the Holy Spirit to guide the church into all truth is as valid today as it was in apostolic times. It is our favored privilege and sacred duty to accord Him the opportunity to perform for us in this generation His appointed task of leading men onward in the quest for a more perfect understanding of the character, will, and ways of the Infinite One as set forth in His Holy Word.
TO JESUS' affirmation of the Sabbath, in principle, and to the demonstration of this principle in His Sabbath miracles, He added His own personal example. The Gospels repeatedly mention Jesus' personal attendance at the synagogue service. Six of the seven Sabbath miracles occurred in connection with attendance at either the synagogue or the Temple. . .
BIBLICAL theology and anthropology envision God as Creator and man as creature, and the supreme goal of man's existence to be to apprehend God, to enter into a vital relationship with Him, and voluntarily to fulfill the Creator's purpose for him. To this end God ordained a special revelation of Himself, a special place where man might commune with Him, and a special time for such communion—the Scripture, the temple, and the Sabbath. In this study we are concerned with the attitude and practice of Christ and His followers with respect to Sabbath observance in New Testament times. . .
