Paragraph 9
“The Lord’s Day” in Documents of the Second Century
A Focussed Perception and Conception
Samuele Bacchiocchi, Ph. D., Professor of Theology, Andrews
University, in his ‘From Sabbath to Sunday: a Historical
Investigation of the Rise of Sunday Observance in Early Christianity’
(Pontifical Gregorian University Press, Rome, 1977), Chapter 7,
‘Anti-Judaism in the Fathers and the Origin of Sunday’, states,
“Ignatius, Barnabas and Justin, whose writings constitute
our major source of information for the first half of the second
century, witnessed and participated in the process of separation from
Judaism which led the majority of the Christians to abandon the
Sabbath and adopt Sunday as the new day of worship. Their
testimonies therefore, coming from such an early period, assume a
vital importance for our inquiry into the causes of the origin of
Sunday observance.”
