It just brought up to my attention that this video brought about me into disbelief.
Now my question is:Why is it that we celebrate mass on sundays instead of saturdays? Was it originally saturday and switched off to sunday? and if so, why are we not celebrating it on saturdays?
I noticed this film stated that “the first day of the week” was mentioned in the Bible, but in no place did it say it was “ok to change the sabbath”.
Let’s look at these passages, and see what they say:
8:1 Now after the sabbath, toward the dawn of the first day of the week, Mary Mag’dalene and the other Mary went to see the sepulchre.
2 And very early on the first day of the week they went to the tomb when the sun had risen.
9 Now when he rose early on the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene,
24:1 But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they went to the tomb,
20:1 Now on the first day of the week Mary Mag’dalene came to the tomb early, while it was still dark, and saw that the stone had been taken away from the tomb.
The disciples, at the time, were hiding in the upper room when the gals came in to tell them what happened.
Jesus rose from the dead.
The Apostles apparently took to gathering on the day of the Resurrection.
19 On the evening of that day, the first day of the week, the doors being shut where the disciples were, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said to them, “Peace be with you.” 20 When he had said this, he showed them his hands and his side. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord. 21 Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I send you.” 22 And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. 23 If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.” John 20:19-23
Jesus came and made the Church Theopneustos, just as He later did the scriptures.
The same thing happened on Pentecost, also the first day of the week. The disciples gathered, and the HS fell upon them.
This practice continued to the present day.
7 On the first day of the week, when we were gathered together to break bread, Paul talked with them,
Up until the time the Christians were determined to be a “sect” that was anti-Jewish (or so the Jews thought) the Hebrew Christians attended the synagogue on Saturday, and gathered for the Mass on Sunday.
Once the gospel spread to the Gentiles, there was no interest to attend the Synagogue on Saturday. The Gentiles only came to Mass on Sunday.
Whose idea was it to rise on a Sunday? Whose idea was it to breathe on the Apostles on a Sunday? Whose idea was it to pour out the Spirit on a Sunday? Whose idea was it to appear to the two on the Road to Emmaus on the first day of the week, manifesting Himself to them in the breaking of the bread?
31 And their eyes were opened and they recognized him;
Since the disciples expected Him to appear at any time, would they not wait with expectant faith on that day of the week which He had appeared before?
