Hi, guys —

  • Seeing that the Hebrews used a [lunar|solar] calendar to calculate Feast Days and Sabbaths, can you please give me historical evidence that the Saturday Sabbath on which the Seventh Day Adventist use as a basis for their worship day, as the seventh day of the week, is incorrect ?

From what I understand Rome, as a group, did not use a seven day week until around 321 A.D.

Please help!

Mary Ann replied:

Hi, Connie —

Everyone uses a seven day week, except for Napoleon who tried to have a ten day week.

The question is about not the week, but the Sabbath. There is a new Sabbath, the Lord's Day,
the Day of the New Creation, prophesied in the Old Testament, which began with the Resurrection of Christ.
