The expression "the sabbath" as such is only used in Scripture to describe the Mosaic and never the Post-Mosaic sabbath. Yet the Sunday "sabbath" reaches back over the head of the Mosaic sabbath and links up with the Edenic "sabbath." It too, like the New Testament Sunday, is nowhere specifically called the "sabbath,"57 Yet it was the first day of the week(s) of Adam’s life, before the fall.58
As a compulsory ordinance for the New Testament Christian, the Saturday sabbath then fell away after its fulfilment on Calvary and in the tomb.59 But this does not, as Antinomians falsely maintain, refer to Sunday. For nowhere in Scripture is Sunday described as a "sabbath" (although it is one). And it is clear from Scripture60 that Sunday observance has not fallen away — as has the Saturday sabbath.
