Life Lessons
Did you know…?

Sabbath occurs 137 times in the Bible, surprisingly Sabbath occurs 60x in the New Testament. Remarkably, Sabbath occurs in the Hebrew Scriptures, or the Old Testament KJV 77 times.

Bible Lesson

The number ‘7’ figures prominently in scriptures, theology and is highlighted in prophecy through the 7 Feasts of the Lord, the 7 day week, and the number 7 is in the book of Revelation an astonishing 54 times.

Life Lesson

When people, who are not Christians, consider Christianity they often make mistaken statements like, ‘I would be a Christian, but I would have to stop this or that’, or ‘it seems to be about don't do this or don't do that’. As Christians we understand Christianity is about what we do; we love God, we love people, we are forgiven, we have peace, hope, love, and joy. In the same way, people without Jewish Roots look at the Sabbath and think ‘you can’t do this or that’. The Sabbath is about what we get to do like worship, prayer, Bible reading, spending time with family and friends, and to rest. Perhaps what we haven’t made enough time for in the other 6 days.

Sabbath Tip

The Sabbath or rest begins with sundown based on Genesis 1:5.

Original Hebrew Tip

First the word for ‘repent’ or return is the Shin (the S) and the Beth (the B). The Shin means ‘destroy’, and the Beth means ‘house’. So repent or return means ‘destroy the house’ or the old selfish ways and don't go back there.

Life Lesson

Remember Lot’s wife? Don't look back.

Original Hebrew Tip

Sabbath is formed in the Hebrew with the Shin, Beth, and the Tav. The first two letters, the Shin and Beth mean repent or return. The Tav is the cross, meaning the sign, or the covenant.

So Sabbath in the Hebrew means:
‘return to the cross’ or ‘return to the covenant’

Life Lesson

We are not told exactly how to have the sabbath in our homes. Perhaps this is so we will not focus on ‘what’ we do, but focus on who the sabbath is about, God, and our relationship with Him, and our relationships with people.

Bible Tip

Leviticus 23, the chapter that speaks of all 7 Feasts of the Lord, starts out with the Sabbath.

Life Lesson (:)

Since it was Yeshua who created everything, it must be Yeshua who rested.

Verses Referenced and Teaching Notes
Ex 16:22-30 NKJV
22 And so it was, on the sixth day, that they gathered twice as much bread, two omers for each one. And all the rulers of the congregation came and told Moses. 23 Then he said to them, "This is what the Lord has said: 'Tomorrow is a Sabbath rest, a holy Sabbath to the Lord. Bake what you will bake today, and boil what you will boil; and lay up for yourselves all that remains, to be kept until morning.'" 24 So they laid it up till morning, as Moses commanded; and it did not stink, nor were there any worms in it. 25 Then Moses said, "Eat that today, for today is a Sabbath to the Lord; today you will not find it in the field. 26 Six days you shall gather it, but on the seventh day, the Sabbath, there will be none."
27 Now it happened that some of the people went out on the seventh day to gather, but they found none. 28 And the Lord said to Moses, "How long do you refuse to keep My commandments and My laws? 29 See! For the Lord has given you the Sabbath; therefore He gives you on the sixth day bread for two days. Let every man remain in his place; let no man go out of his place on the seventh day." 30 So the people rested on the seventh day.
Ex 20:8-11 NKJV
8 "Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. 9 Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 10 but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. 11 For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it.
Deut 5:12-15 NKJV
12 'Observe the Sabbath day, to keep it holy, as the Lord your God commanded you. 13 Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 14 but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your ox, nor your donkey, nor any of your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates, that your male servant and your female servant may rest as well as you. 15 And remember that you were a slave in the land of Egypt, and the Lord your God brought you out from there by a mighty hand and by an outstretched arm; therefore the Lord your God commanded you to keep the Sabbath day.
Gen 2:1-3 NKJV
1 Thus the heavens and the earth, and all the host of them, were finished. 2 And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. 3 Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made.
Gen 1:5 NKJV
God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day.
2 Peter 3:7-13 NKJV
7 But the heavens and the earth which are now preserved by the same word, are reserved for fire until the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.  8 But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 9 The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance. 10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up.  11 Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, 12 looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat? 13 Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.
2 Peter 3:8-9 NKJV
8 But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 9 The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.

27 And He said to them, "The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath.  28 Therefore the Son of Man is also Lord of the Sabbath."

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. 4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.

and his life brought light to everyone.

All things were created through Him and for Him. 17 And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.
