The 4th Commandment.
Keeping the Lord's Day Holy.
10 Commandments. Early in my Christian walk, I realized that a lot of what was being taught by Christians, was just the latest religious theories, the current trend, the latest fad, the latest catch phrases or Pop-Christianity. And it was necessary to separate what was coming from man, and what was coming from God. This was also true in biblical times, there have always been many different religious teachings that did not come from God.
One current theory says, "We no longer need to obey the 4th commandment anymore; it's now just a good idea to have a day's rest!" This religious teaching came from man, not God. In truth, the 4th commandments is still a commandment, like the others, Don't Murder, Don't Steal, etc.
As I studied many divine revelations from God regarding Heaven and Hell, there was one thing that was very consistent. The things God warned His people about, would come true, if they ignored His warning. So it's useless to hope that God might break His Word, just because someone is a Christian. For example, when Jesus warned us, ‘unless you forgive your brother when he sins against you, your Heavenly Father will NOT forgive your sins.' This is true, even if you're the pastor of a 10,000 member church. So His warnings must be taken seriously, by everyone.
This is why, in several revelations of Hell, there are many Christians that wound up in hell, because they falsely assumed that God would NOT carry out His Word. We know that by the shed blood of Jesus we are able to get forgiveness for our sins, but it doesn't allow us to flippantly and continually violate God's commandments. And Christians that do continually break God's commandments, without repentance, their salvation IS in jeopardy. This is consistent with all scripture.
We need to be reminded that the 10 Commandments, are NOT 10 suggestions. The commandments bring blessings to those who obey. This doesn't mean that someone is righteous because they obey commandments, but it does mean that there is judgment for those who break them.
Which of the 10 commandments were abolished with the coming of Jesus Christ? NONE! We are still to follow all of them. Just because the Pharisees, over applied the commandment of the Sabbath, adding 100's of man made rules, doesn't justify the fact that we now pretty much neglect the 4th commandment, seldom even mentioning it in Sermons. The 4th commandment was not some little Levitical law, buried in scripture. No, it was written on stone, along with the other Major commandments, and consistently held important throughout scripture.
Foolishly, I always assumed that it was no longer required to keep the Sabbath Day Holy, or Sundays. Just go to Church, and that's enough. In fact, after Church, I would spend the rest of the Lord's Day pretty much the same as any other week day. We know how passionate Jesus was against those who desecrated the Lord Temple, aggressively driving them out, but I never guessed that He would also be passionate against those who violate the Lord's Day.
The popular Christian catch phrase, for someone who follows the 4th Commandment regarding Sabbath, is that they are being too "Legalistic." But in comparison, if someone obeys the 6th commandment, and does not kill, we never say they are being "Legalistic."
We must remember that every blessing of God is in jeopardy, for someone who does not fear the Lord, or obey His Word. And now, it has been shown by revelation and scripture, that violating the 4th commandment is very serious, and can even bring eternal condemnation.
Exodus 20:8-12. Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the LORD your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your manservant or maidservant, nor your animals, nor the alien within your gates. For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.
The text of the 4th commandment, basically says,
1. Dedicate the day to the Lord,
2. Don't do your business,
3. Don't have others do your business
When you are spending money on the Lord's Day, somebody is doing business.
There are some decisions every Christian needs to make.
1. either God's day is to be kept Holy, or Not. It's either a commandment or Not.
2. And if you believe it is to be kept Holy, are you going to follow how the bible tells us to keep it Holy, or the current Christian culture tells us how to keep it Holy?
The following excerpts were taken from the revelation Baptize by Blazing Fire (book #3) by Pastor Yong-Doo Kim. His congregation was given many face to face visitations with Jesus Christ and were shown the magnitude of how serious it is to keep the Lord's Day Holy.
Pastor Kim Speaking. I decided to ask the Lord about Sundays, how we should keep them Holy. As soon as I asked Jesus, His expression changed to anger. The Lord wanted me to reference certain scriptures…
"But if you do not obey me to keep the Sabbath day holy by not carrying any load as you come through the gates of Jerusalem on the Sabbath day, then I will kindle an unquenchable fire in the gates of Jerusalem that will consume her fortresses.' Jeremiah 17:27, 'Carrying any load', refers to a load of goods to sell, a selling cart.
"If you keep your feet from breaking the Sabbath and from doing as you please on my holy day, if you call the Sabbath a delight and the LORD's holy day honorable, and if you honor it by not going your own way and not doing as you please or speaking idle words, then you will find your joy in the LORD, and I will cause you to ride on the heights of the land and to feast on the inheritance of your father Jacob." The mouth of the LORD has spoken. Isaiah 58:13-14.
"For the Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath." Matthew 12:8
"Therefore it is lawful to do good on the Sabbath." Matthew 12:12
The Lord had commanded us to keep Sundays Holy in every way. He rebuked watching television, dining out with family, and other secular activities. Furthermore, the Lord did not permit Christians to run any business of any kind for profit on Sundays. He also did not allow Saints to do any shopping on Sundays.
Jesus showed me a group of souls in a specific part of hell, and said, "Among these souls are some who participated in a cult. There are some who were alcoholics and some who treated the Sabbath or Sunday carelessly. On Sundays they would spend money for their pleasure. Most of these people are here for not keeping Sundays Holy. There are some who ran businesses and assumed that the Lord would forgive them. They were deceived." I saw countless numbers of deacons, deaconesses, and pastors from all races.
As a matter of fact, only a few saints made it to heaven that did not keep Sundays properly. And on the contrary, there was an over flowing number of saints in hell for not keeping Sundays holy. The Lord commanded, "Look at those souls! Those souls did not consider My Day with much relevance. They made My Day unclean. Look very closely." We were in total shock from what we saw. Christians were in hell, shouting in anguish and being tormented. After witnessing this scene, I concentrated on repenting for not keeping Sundays Holy in every way.
There are many saints who think that spending money on Sundays is justified, IF it is for the sake of the gospel. Jesus clarified the church's deception, "People obfuscate, misuse, and abuse the commandment of Sunday, 'for the sake of the gospel'. They do it consistently. Do not spend money on Sundays! Once men have decided to do what is in their hearts, they present their reasons or justifications to break the commandment at any cost." The Lord looked very serious. His majesty was overflowing.
Currently, the churches cry out for revival, but they must first be changed. They must fearfully repent. Churches are not properly teaching members to keep Sunday's Holy. In fact, they treat this matter with negligence. The Lord was giving us a stern warning.
Any kind of events held in the house of God, must be free of charge. Many churches sell meal tickets, since they have numerous attendants. Purchasing meal tickets is not keeping Sundays Holy. The Lord meticulously showed me how many Korean Churches are not approved by God because they do not keep Sundays Holy.
The Lord also wanted the church to feed any guest speakers at either the Pastor's house or a saint's house, if the special event is held on Sundays. The Lord did not want the church to take the guest speakers out to a restaurant on Sundays. If the church had a kitchen, the guests could be feed there.
Jesus made it very clear, by stating that He forbids us to spend money on Sundays.
Please take this warning serious, Keep the LORD's Day HOLY!
Critical Questions and Concerns:
Is this a NEW teaching, adding to God's Word, with a bunch of new man made rules?
- NO, this is consistent with the actual text of the 4th Commandment, 'Don't do your business on the Lord's Day & don't have other's do their business for you.'
But, is a severe warning like this really consistent with scripture?
- This warning is almost exactly the same as the warning in Jeremiah 17:27
Keeping God's Sabbath Holy has nothing to do with spending money.
- Not true, read Nehemiah 10:31, when the Jews were recommitting themselves to God, they promised "When the neighboring peoples bring merchandise or grain to sell on the Sabbath, we will not buy from them on the Sabbath..."
Maybe Pastor Kim is a false prophet?
- Biblically, false prophets were NOT the ones trying to get God's people to obey His commandments, false prophets tried to get God's people to ignore God's commandments.
But this message is trying to get Christian's back under the Law.
- The Levitical Law. NO. The 10 commandments, YES. If a message was trying to get us to stop stealing, we would never say it's trying to get us back under the Law.
What if someone disagrees with this?
- The proper response is to get on your knees, and ask God if this is true. Don't just assume we know everything, but be ready to repent. Remembering that most warnings that God sent His people in the Bible, were ignored.
So if my car runs out of gas on Sunday, and I buy Gas, now I'm going to hell. This is so ridiculous.
- This is NOT what this revelation said! In this revelation, the people who were in hell were those who 'did not consider My Day with much relevance' or 'ran businesses on Sunday.' So if you don't take His Day with much relevance, then yes, you are in danger.
But Jesus said it is lawful to do good on the Sabbath.
- This is true, and important to do good on the Lord's day. And as you're doing good, keep the Lord's Day Holy. Jesus and His disciples kept the Lord's Day Holy, they weren't conducting their personal business or soliciting others, why shouldn't we follow their example.
But Jesus said that the Sabbath was made for man, NOT man for the Sabbath.
- This is true, and it was true not only in Jesus' day but also in the Old Testament. Yet God still help Israel accountable for desecrating it. So let's not desecrate it.
The 4th Commandment was NOT an important issue that was stressed in the New Testament, so why is God trying to stress it now?
- Look at Luke 23:56 "Then they went home and prepared spices and perfumes. But they rested on the
Sabbath in obedience to the commandment." This verse refers to the people that were with Jesus, and preparing spices to bring to His tomb. They heard the very words of Jesus, and yet they took the commandment serious enough not to break it. If these people who heard His teaching, took the commandment serious, don't you think we should?
- That's because the people of the early Church already did take the Lord's Day serious, no where did they say that they abolished it. It is now that we are neglecting it. In all the sermons that I've heard, I can't recall one message regarding HOW to Keep the Lord's Day Holy.
- We know how furious Jesus was against those who were doing their business in the Temple area, let's not do anything that even comes close to that. Look at Leviticus 19:30 "'Observe my Sabbaths and have reverence for my sanctuary. I am the LORD." Why would we think that Jesus would be zealous for the 2nd part of this verse (regarding the Sanctuary), but would not the first part regarding the Sabbaths?
But the Bible says that we should honor God all days, not just the Sabbath/Sunday.
- That's good advice, we should do this. Honor God on all days, but also obey the 4th Commandment. There is no contradiction here.
Are there any exceptions?
- There may be, but remember what Jesus warned us about, 'presenting reasons or justifications to break the commandment at any cost.'
Where is the Grace? The Jesus of this revelation is not the Jesus of the Bible, because He does not show grace!
- Ok, let's look at Acts 5:1-11. In the days of the New Church, God struck dead Ananias and Sapphira, for just 1 lie. Not a lifetime of lies, but just one. They were not scolded and told to repent, but received instant judgment. And they were even willing to give 50% of their money to God, few today could claim that. The reason some people don't believe this revelation, is because they do not understand God's judgments. And in their understanding of God, they would never consider that He would ever strike down Ananias and Sapphira in such a way. But it did happen, as scripture states.
If this is so important, then why is Pastor Kim the only one talking about this?
-He's not, It was also shown to Choo Thomas. She was shown that those who break this commandment, will not be ready for the Lord's return.
But Colossians 2:16-17 says "Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration or a Sabbath day"
- Yes, let's not go around judging people, or pointing the accusing finger, this is true. But be careful how you interpret this, because interpreting this wrongly can result in these conclusions.
a. "Sabbath day"------The 4th Commandment has been abolished.
b. "drink"------------Any warning or commandment not to get drunk, has been abolished.
c. "drink"------------Any warning or commandment not to drink blood, has been abolished.
d. "eat"--------------Any commandment regarding cannibalism, communion, or foods sacrificed to idols, has been abolished.
All these interpretation are HORRIBLE. Remember, it's not people who warned others to keep the Lord's Day Holy, it's God who told us to do this. He is the Judge, not us.
But in Galatians 4:10 Paul warned people about trying to observe special days, and months and seasons and years.
- Yes, by obeying God's commandments it does NOT make you righteous, it does NOT earn your way to heaven, and it does NOT bring you the Holy Spirit. Those whom Paul was warning, may have foolishly believed this things. Therefore, as you're keeping the Lord's Day Holy, don't think that it earns you the Holy Spirit, or earns your way into Heaven.
In Romans 14:5 Paul said, "One man considers one day more sacred than another; another man considers every day alike. Each one should be fully convinced in his own mind."
- Yes, someone may believe their birthday is sacred, or thanksgiving is sacred, fine, I don't think it our job to tell them otherwise. But regarding the Lord's Day, it was NOT 'someone' who considered that day sacred, it was God who told us it was sacred in His Word. Therefore He put in the the 10 commandments, and throughout scripture. God held Israel responsible for defiling His Day, it was one of the sins that led Israel into Babylonian captivity. How can any biblical scholar think that it would NOT be important today?
Salvation is NOT based on what YOU DO, it is ONLY dependant on the finished work of Jesus Christ on the Cross.
- There is truth in this, but it can be grossly misapplied. The first word of the Gospel message is 'Repent' which is a verb, something WE must do.
Here are other biblical examples...
- The 5 foolish virgins were shut out of the banquet, because of what THEY did.
- The unmerciful servant was not shown mercy, because of what HE did.
- The goats on the Lord's left were cast into hell, because of what THEY did.
- The fruitless branch was cut off, because of what IT did.
- The one who perseveres to the end, is saved, because HE did not give up on Jesus.
- The foolish servant with 1 talent, was cast out, because of what HE did.
- The unprepared servant who was getting drunk, was thrown out, because of what HE did.
The correct application of this truth is this, 'those who wisely did pass all these tests, did NOT earn their salvation, it was still given by Grace.' thank God! But if you fail these tests, as the parables show, there are harsh consequences.
Scriptures About The Sabbath:
Genesis 2 1-2, Thus the heavens and the earth were completed in all their vast array. By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.
Comment: Even from the beginning of creation, God blesses and consecrates the seventh day that is the Sabbath day and makes it a holy day. It is obviously an example God wants us to follow. It is also significant to note that the first thing in the bible called holy is a day - the seventh day. The day God set aside for himself and later us, as a day of rest.
Exodus 16 21-27. Each morning everyone gathered as much as they needed, and when the sun grew hot, it melted away. On the sixth day, they gathered twice as much - two omers for each person - and the leaders of the community came and reported this to Moses. He said to them, This is what the LORD commanded: Tomorrow is to be a day of sabbath rest, a holy sabbath to the LORD. So bake what you want to bake and boil what you want to boil. Save whatever is left and keep it until morning. So they saved it until morning, as Moses commanded, and it did not stink or get maggots in it. Eat it today, Moses said, because today is a sabbath to the LORD. You will not find any of it on the ground today. Six days you are to gather it, but on the seventh day, the Sabbath, there will not be any. Nevertheless, some of the people went out on the seventh day to gather it, but they found none. Then the LORD said to Moses, How long will you refuse to keep my commands and my instructions? Bear in mind that the LORD has given you the Sabbath; that is why on the sixth day he gives you bread for two days. Everyone is to stay where they are on the seventh day; no one is to go out. So the people rested on the seventh day.
Comment: After God delivers His people out of Egypt and out of bondage He starts to establish the Sabbath as a holy day and a day of rest.
The Fourth Commandment. Exodus 20 8-11. Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a sabbath to the LORD your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your male or female servant, nor your animals, nor any foreigner residing in your towns. For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.
Comment: God considers the Sabbath so important, that He makes it one of the 10 commandments. Written by His own finger. Obviously, God seriously expects us to take the Sabbath day as Holy and as a day of rest. Notice also that this commandment is the longest of the 10 commandments. God took extra care to explain this commandment so that we would be sure to obey it.
Exodus 31 12-18. Then the LORD said to Moses, Say to the Israelites, You must observe my Sabbaths. This will be a sign between me and you for the generations to come, so you may know that I am the LORD, who makes you holy. Observe the Sabbath, because it is holy to you. Anyone who desecrates it is to be put to death; those who do any work on that day must be cut off from their people. For six days work is to be done, but the seventh day is a day of sabbath rest, holy to the LORD. Whoever does any work on the Sabbath day is to be put to death. The Israelites are to observe the Sabbath, celebrating it for the generations to come as a lasting covenant. It will be a sign between me and the Israelites forever, for in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day he rested and was refreshed. When the LORD finished speaking to Moses on Mount Sinai, he gave him the two tablets of the covenant law, the tablets of stone inscribed by the finger of God.
Exodus 35 1-3. Moses assembled the whole Israelite community and said to them, These are the things the LORD has commanded you to do: For six days, work is to be done, but the seventh day shall be your holy day, a Sabbath of rest to the LORD. Whoever does any work on it must be put to death. Do not light a fire in any of your dwellings on the Sabbath day.
Leviticus 19 30 and Leviticus 26 2. Observe my Sabbaths and have reverence for my sanctuary. I am the LORD.
Leviticus 23 3. There are six days when you may work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath of rest, a day of sacred assembly. You are not to do any work; wherever you live, it is a Sabbath to the LORD.
As well as resting on the Sabbath, God expects us to join in the sacred assembly. In our New Testament covenant, we also share in communion with our Lord Jesus and with our brothers and sisters in Christ.
Numbers 15 30-36. But anyone who sins defiantly, whether native-born or foreigner, blasphemes the LORD and must be cut off from the people of Israel. Because they have despised the LORD's word and broken his commands, they must surely be cut off; their guilt remains on them. While the Israelites were in the wilderness, a man was found gathering wood on the Sabbath day. Those who found him gathering wood brought him to Moses and Aaron and the whole assembly, and they kept him in custody, because it was not clear what should be done to him. Then the LORD said to Moses, “The man must die. The whole assembly must stone him outside the camp. So the assembly took him outside the camp and stoned him to death, as the LORD commanded Moses.
Comment: Notice how serious the Sabbath day was to God. Violation was punishable by death.
Deuteronomy 5 14-15. But the seventh day is a Sabbath to the LORD your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your manservant or maidservant, nor your ox, your donkey or any of your animals, nor the alien within your gates, so that your manservant and maidservant may rest, as you do. Remember that you were slaves in Egypt and that the LORD your God brought you out of there with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm. Therefore the LORD your God has commanded you to observe the Sabbath day.
Nehemiah 13 15-22. In those days I saw people in Judah treading winepresses on the Sabbath and bringing in grain and loading it on donkeys, together with wine, grapes, figs and all other kinds of loads. And they were bringing all this into Jerusalem on the Sabbath. Therefore I warned them against selling food on that day. People from Tyre who lived in Jerusalem were bringing in fish and all kinds of merchandise and selling them in Jerusalem on the Sabbath to the people of Judah. I rebuked the nobles of Judah and said to them, What is this wicked thing you are doing - desecrating the Sabbath day? Didn't your ancestors do the same things, so that our God brought all this calamity on us and on this city? Now you are stirring up more wrath against Israel by desecrating the Sabbath. When evening shadows fell on the gates of Jerusalem before the Sabbath, I ordered the doors to be shut and not opened until the Sabbath was over. I stationed some of my own men at the gates so that no load could be brought in on the Sabbath day. Once or twice the merchants and sellers of all kinds of goods spent the night outside Jerusalem. But I warned them and said, Why do you spend the night by the wall? If you do this again, I will arrest you.” From that time on they no longer came on the Sabbath. Then I commanded the Levites to purify themselves and go and guard the gates in order to keep the Sabbath day holy. Remember me for this also, my God, and show mercy to me according to your great love.
Comment: Notice that as well as taking the Sabbath as a day of rest, we
are not to allow anyone else to work by selling or buying on the Sabbath. Many take the Sabbath day as a day of rest from work, but then they cause others to work by buying things and eating out at restaurants. This, of course, is still violating the Sabbath day, which is the fourth of the ten commandments. Notice that in the fourth commandment, God not only states that we are to cease from working. We also should not allow others to work for us. Recall that the fourth commandment says, "On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your male or female servant, nor your animals, nor any foreigner residing in your towns."
Isaiah 56 2. Blessed is the man who does this, the man who holds it fast, who keeps the Sabbath without desecrating it, and keeps his hand from doing any evil.
Isaiah 58 6,13-14. Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: If you keep your feet from breaking the Sabbath and from doing as you please on my holy day, if you call the Sabbath a delight and the LORD's holy day honorable, and if you honor it by not going your own way and not doing as you please or speaking idle words, then you will find your joy in the LORD, and I will cause you to ride in triumph on the heights of the land and to feast on the inheritance of your father Jacob. For the mouth of the LORD has spoken.
Jeremiah 17 19-27. This is what the LORD said to me: “Go and stand at the Gate of the People, through which the kings of Judah go in and out; stand also at all the other gates of Jerusalem. Say to them, 'Hear the word of the LORD, you kings of Judah and all people of Judah and everyone living in Jerusalem who come through these gates. This is what the LORD says: Be careful not to carry a load on the Sabbath day or bring it through the gates of Jerusalem. Do not bring a load out of your houses or do any work on the Sabbath, but keep the Sabbath day holy, as I commanded your ancestors. Yet they did not listen or pay attention; they were stiff-necked and would not listen or respond to discipline. But if you are careful to obey me, declares the LORD, and bring no load through the gates of this city on the Sabbath, but keep the Sabbath day holy by not doing any work on it, then kings who sit on David's throne will come through the gates of this city with their officials. They and their officials will come riding in chariots and on horses, accompanied by the men of Judah and those living in Jerusalem, and this city will be inhabited forever. People will come from the towns of Judah and the villages around Jerusalem, from the territory of Benjamin and the western foothills, from the hill country and the Negev, bringing burnt offerings and sacrifices, grain offerings and incense, and bringing thank offerings to the house of the LORD. But if you do not obey me to keep the Sabbath day holy by not carrying any load as you come through the gates of Jerusalem on the Sabbath day, then I will kindle an unquenchable fire in the gates of Jerusalem that will consume her fortresses.'”
Ezekiel 20 11-20. I gave them my decrees and made known to them my laws, by which the person who obeys them will live. Also I gave them my Sabbaths as a sign between us, so they would know that I the LORD made them holy. Yet the people of Israel rebelled against me in the wilderness. They did not follow my decrees but rejected my laws-by which the person who obeys them will live-and they utterly desecrated my Sabbaths. So I said I would pour out my wrath on them and destroy them in the wilderness. But for the sake of my name I did what would keep it from being profaned in the eyes of the nations in whose sight I had brought them out. Also with uplifted hand I swore to them in the wilderness that I would not bring them into the land I had given them-a land flowing with milk and honey, the most beautiful of all lands- because they rejected my laws and did not follow my decrees and desecrated my Sabbaths. For their hearts were devoted to their idols. Yet I looked on them with pity and did not destroy them or put an end to them in the wilderness. I said to their children in the wilderness, “Do not follow the statutes of your parents or keep their laws or defile yourselves with their idols. I am the LORD your God; follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws. Keep my Sabbaths holy, that they may be a sign between us. Then you will know that I am the LORD your God.
End of Old Testament passages about the Sabbath day.
Now we mention some New Testament Passages about the Sabbath day.
Mark 16 1. When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices so that they might go to anoint Jesus' body.
Luke 6 5. Then Jesus said to them, "The Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath."

Luke 13 14-16. Indignant because Jesus had healed on the Sabbath, the synagogue ruler said to the people, "There are six days for work. So come and be healed on those days, not on the Sabbath." The Lord answered him, "You hypocrites! Doesn't each of you on the Sabbath untie his ox or donkey from the stall and lead it out to give it water? Then should not this woman, a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan has kept bound for eighteen long years, be set free on the Sabbath day from what bound her?"
Luke 23 56. Then they went home and prepared spices and perfumes. But they rested on the Sabbath in obedience to the commandment.
John 7 22-23. Yet, because Moses gave you circumcision, though actually it did not come from Moses, but from the patriarchs, you circumcise a child on the Sabbath. Now if a child can be circumcised on the Sabbath so that the law of Moses may not be broken, why are you angry with me for healing the whole man on the Sabbath?
