Bible Commentary for Leviticus 23:32

Wesley's Notes for Leviticus 23:32


23:32 From even to even - The day of atonement began at the evening of the ninth day, and continued till the evening of the tenth day. Ye shall celebrate your sabbath - This particular sabbath is called your sabbath, possibly to note the difference between this and other sabbaths: for the weekly sabbath is oft called the sabbath of the Lord. The Jews are supposed to begin every day, and consequently their sabbaths, at the evening, in remembrance of the creation, as Christians generally begin their days and sabbaths with the morning in memory of Christ's resurrection.


Discussion for Leviticus 23:32

  • Nigel on Leviticus 23:32
    I respectively disagree with Wesley 's notes. The mention of 'your Sabbath ' is by no means the name or title of this Sabbath. This verse indicates the weekly Sabbath of the week which is the seventh day of the week, Saturday which begins from Friday sunset and concludes Saturday Sunset. Prior to roman influence on the calender the days of the week began and ended the same way from sunset to sunset. The mention of 'your Sabbath ' refers to the Sabbath being a sign between humanity and God and the Sabbath was given to all of mankind. The Resurrection and the Sabbath have no connection to each other, this idea is man made and not supported by scripture. What we find is that scripture informs us the baptism is in remembrance of the Resurrection.
  • Luvuwaqa on Leviticus 23:32
    This is real proof that a new day begins at sunset and not at midnight as the whole world is currently practicing. Or ............????
