What does the word “Sabbath” mean?
“Sabbath” comes from the Hebrew shabbat, “to cease”.
What’s the history behind the idea of the “Sabbath”?
The Sabbath refers to a weekly day of rest. The concept first appears in the Old Testament in the book of Genesis. Many religions observe this weekly day of rest including Judaism and Christianity. In Judaism, the Sabbath is observed from sundown on Friday until the appearance of three stars in the sky on Saturday night. In most Christian denominations the Sabbath is observed on Sunday.
