Vol. 16 No. 1 (2015): Sabbath
From the editorial:
The commandment to â€œremember the Sabbath day and keep it holyâ€ appears in two forms in the Old Testament. Keeping the Sabbath reminds us that God is in charge of the world and we are not, that Godâ€™s creating and redeeming activity exists prior to all our activities. How we should honor these commandments has been debated over the centuries. Jesus himself contributed to the debate by interpreting the Sabbath in ways that were sometimes out of step with his contemporariesâ€™ convictions. That the Sabbath was important, however, was never in question. This issue of Vision invites readers to consider Sabbath from a rich variety of perspectives and to contemplate the ongoing significance of Sabbath.
