    The Bible is clear, the Sabbath is a day of rest for all people. Exodus 20: 8-11 Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy. Mark2:27,28- the Sabbath was made for man and not man for the sabbath. Therefore the Son of man is Lord of the Sabbath. Ex. 16:18-20, Christ a Sabbath keeper, Luke 4: 16. Luke 23:52-54-56. Throughout the new testament the Christians kept the Sabbath. Acts 13:14, Acts 13:42-44, Acts 16:11-13.
