Christ’s Example of Sabbath Observance

Luke 4:31  

Then He went down to Capernaum, a city of Galilee, and was teaching them on the Sabbaths.

Listen to the "Verse by Verse" episode covering this scripture.

As we discussed concerning the passages in Mark 1:21 and Mark 6:2, Jesus Christ’s custom was to observe the Sabbath. The Bible teaches us to follow Christ’s example and to walk as He walked (1 Peter 2:21; 1 John 2:6).

The apostle John explained: “For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome” (1 John 5:3). So why do so few Christians follow Christ’s example of keeping the Sabbath commandment? Why do so many neglect this gift from God?
