Sunday rest

The phenomenon rest day dates from just after creation. God was finished creating and he rested from all the work of creating that he had done. The word for rest is ‘shabath’ and also means to cease, to desist. To His people Israel he commanded to celebrate the 7th day by not working but resting.
