Presentation Abstract

This paper is an attempt to engage new covenant Christian into a dialogue about the theological foundation of the Sabbath. In particular, it addresses the claim that the Sabbath in the Decalogue is not theologically founded in the seventh day of the creation week, and that its observance is only required from the people of Israel. Using an interdisciplinary approach, this research evaluates the legitimacy of these claims in light of the biblical metanarrative. The aftermath of this research might impact the way Seventh-day Adventists and other Evangelicals interpret the Sabbath of the Decalogue.
