God designated a specific day each week for rest and worship. The seventh day, known as Saturday, was sanctified in the Ten Commandments for the Israelites. In ancient times, Jewish people observed the Sabbath from Friday evening to Saturday evening, dedicating Saturday to rest. Some Christians gather for worship on Sunday to commemorate the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit’s first communication with His followers.
The person mentioned is Constantine the Great.
Constantine the Great was born in Serbia in 272 AD. After his father’s passing, he was crowned Emperor. He initially followed pagan beliefs but later converted to Christianity and distanced himself from other faiths. He aligned with both the Catholic and Orthodox churches and promoted sun worship. He put an end to the persecution of Christians and encouraged the construction of churches throughout the empire.
Constantine changed the Sabbath by mandating that the Eucharist be celebrated on a corporate day of worship, which became Sunday. He argued that the Sabbath should be observed daily and that strict Mosaic laws, such as male circumcision and animal sacrifices before the time of Moses and the Israelites, were not necessary. He pointed out that early human generations like Adam, Abel, Enoch, and Lot did not observe the Sabbath, yet they pleased God.
