What is the Christian Lord’s Day? Why is it of continued importance? What does is represent? These and other questions will be addressed in The Lord’s Day in Scripture.
The Lord’s Day is the scriptural name for the Christian day of worship on the first day of the week. The Lord’s Day is the Lord’s Day--the day of which the Lord Jesus Christ took possession by his resurrection on the first day of the week. The day of Christ’s resurrection was prophesied in the Old Testament to be on the third day, fulfilled in the New Testament on the first day of the week, and celebrated as the Lord’s Day. Therefore, the time of the resurrection is directly connected to the event of the resurrection.
The Lord’s Day in Scripture establishes the scriptural basis for the Lord’s Day. It seeks to help each Christian appreciate worship, fellowship, and meaning in church through a better understanding of what the Lord’s Day is and is not.
