How Should We Address the Sabbath in Evangelism? Bob Selph & Bob Gonzales Answer [Video] + More

During the Q&A session for the Church Ministry module of RBS, Dr Bob Gonzales and Pastor Bob Selph respond to a question raised by one of the students regarding how much emphasis should be given to addressing the Fourth commandment in fulfilling the Great Commission to “make disciples.”

It includes a brief explanation of what it means to Sabbath, why it switched to Sunday, why we should practice it still, and how to share it with others.

Watch the nine minute video:

A lot of what Dr. Gonzales says I recognized from a previous post he wrote called, “Following My Re-Maker’s Example: Why I ‘Sabbath’ on Sunday”.

In the Decalogue, God commands His people to rest from their weekly labors one day a week. Moreover, the Lord grounds this command in his own example:

For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day. Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy (Ex 20:11, ESV).

So Israel should set the “Sabbath day” apart because God himself set it apart. They are responsible in this case to follow their Maker’s example.

Christ also roots the Sabbath obligation in creation and underscores its beneficent aim: “The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath” (Mark 2:27). God didn’t rest on the seventh day merely for his own benefit. He did it for mankind (ανθροπος). This implies that the Sabbath was first instituted at creation, not Sinai. What’s more, the Sabbath wasn’t instituted solely for Israelites’ benefit. It was made for humanity.
