Overview

The history of the Sabbath embraces a period of 6,000 years. The seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord. The acts which constituted it such were, first, the examples of the Creator; secondly, His placing His blessing upon the day; and thirdly, the sanctification or divine appointment of the day to a holy use. The Sabbath, therefore, dates from the beginning of our world's history. It is the object of this volume to note the record of the Sabbath in secular history and show the several steps by which the Sunday festival has usurped the place of this ancient Sabbath.
