The Sabbath-New Testament

For the Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath.”[AMP, Matthew 12:8]

Now when evening came, after the sun had set [and the Sabbath Day had ended, in a steady stream] they were bringing to Him all who were sick and those who were under the power of demons,[AMP, Matthew 1:32]

Jesus said to them, “The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath. So the Son of Man is Lord even of the Sabbath [and He has authority over it].”[AMP, Mark 2:27-28]

So He came to Nazareth, where He had been brought up; and as was His custom, He entered the synagogue on the Sabbath, and stood up to read.[AMP, Luke 4:16]

While the sun was setting [marking the end of theSabbath day], all those who had any who were sick with various diseases brought them to Jesus; and laying His hands on each one of them, He was healing them [exhibiting His authority as Messiah].[AMP, Luke 4:40]

Jesus was saying to them, “The Son of Man (the Messiah) is Lord [even] of the Sabbath.”[AMP, Luke 6:5]

Now it was on a Sabbath day that Jesus made the mud and opened the man’s eyes.[AMP, John 9:14]

Therefore let no one judge you in regard to food and drink or in regard to [the observance of] a festival or a new moon or a Sabbath day. Such things are only a shadow of what is to come and they have only symbolic value; but the substance [the reality of what is foreshadowed] belongs to Christ.[AMP, Colossians 2:16-17]

So there remains a [full and complete] Sabbath rest for the people of God. For the one who has once entered His rest has also rested from [the weariness and pain of] his [human] labors, just as God rested from [those labors uniquely] His own.[AMP, Hebrews 4:9-10]
