  Article:   THE ATTITUDE OF CHRIST CONCERNING THE SHABBAT AS REFLECTED IN THE GOSPELS.

Authors:  PAULA BUD.
 
       
         
  Abstract:  The paper proposes a survey of the Gospels in search for information on the attitude that our Lord Jesus Christ had regarding the Shabbat. The starting point is the call to rest familiar to us from the Old Testament (Exodus 33:14) and renewed by Christ in a slightly different manner, which emphasizes His identity to true rest (Matthew 11:28-30). All of His works accomplished on the Shabbat, such as preaching in the Synagogue (Mark 1:21; 6; 2-5; Luke 4:16-21), achieving miraculous healings (Matthew 12:9-14; Luke 14: 1-6; 13:10-17; Mark 1:23-28; 1:29-31; John 5:1-18; 9:1-41), or allowing His disciples to trespass the sanctity of the Shabbat in the episode of plucking grain (Matthew 12:1-8; Mark 2:23-28; Luke 6: 1-5), are all means of revealing a new and spiritual understanding of this blessed and sanctified day (cf. Genesis 2:3).

Keywords: Shabbat rest, eschatological rest, hesed, miraculous healings.
