Will Christianity restore its lost world-class treasure?
In the beginning—in Eden—sacred time became the centerpiece of Creation. Blessed and hallowed by the Creator, the seventh day of the week (Saturday) became a permanent temple in time. Again, from the mountain of Sinai, God announced to the world: “…the seventh day is the Sabbath of the LORD your God” (Exodus 20:10). Millennia have passed—and where is the sacred time of the seventh day? Forgotten, lost! Who would dare to pre-empt the original “Lord’s day”? Was it Jesus who claimed to be Lord of it? Or was it His disciples? How would this treasure be lost to humanity?
History’s answer: “Under his [Roman Emperor Constantine’s] regime, Sunday became the Christian Sabbath” (“The Real Jesus,” U.S. News and World Report, March 8, 2004, p. 44).
In Sacred Time unRemembered, researcher Daniel Knauft traces in history the circumstances of ecclesiastical compromise, anti-Jewish sentiment, and political expediency that cost the world its magnificent treasure—sacred time. He persistently asks—in order to honor the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ—why is it necessary to abandon the seventh day which honors Him as our Creator?
In ten biblical evidences for the Creation Sabbath, the author advances the reasons why Catholics and Protestants must take the lead in recovering the lost meaning, delight and divine blessing of the Bible’s and Jesus Christ’s seventh day.
