Christ is our Sabbath?


The Sabbath is not a person but ultimately points to a condition of existence for man, the eternal state. Our Lord takes us to that condition, that state of existence, but is himself not that state of existence though he has entered it via his resurrection. Just as the sacrificial system points, not absolutely to a person but inclusively to the work of that person and the benefits that come to believing sinners in light of that person’s work, so the Sabbath points to the work and benefits of the same. ~ from Getting the Garden Right: Adam’s work and God’s rest in light of Christ, forthcoming from Founders Press
