Lord Also of the Sabbath

” ‘The Son of Man is Lord even of the Sabbath,’ … The great dominion our Lord vindicates to himself as the Son of Man, that heavenly  being, whom Daniel saw coming with the clouds of heaven to set up on earth the eternal kingdom of God. Because the Sabbath was made for man, he, the Son of Man, to whom has been given dominion and glory, and a kingdom, that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve him–who reigns by right over man and all things which concern man–is Lord also of the Sabbath.  …To say that the Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath is to withdraw it from the control of men. It is to reserve to the Son of Man all authority over it.  It is not man but the Son of Man who is Lord of the Sabbath.”  –Benjamin B. Warfield “Shorter Writings Vol. 1” p. 310

About Maureen Stohlmeyer

Grateful to have been married to my wonderful husband Michael for nearly 35 years who is now with the Lord, I would like to share from writers from the past who have strengthened our faith and walk with Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer. His walk with God was deeply enriched by the writings of authors from the past and I dedicate this blog to him and to them.
