Jesus Christ broke the Sabbath and thus abolished or eliminated it. This thesis is unfortunately widespread, but cannot be justified with anything. Therefore, corresponding “supplements” have been made in modern Bibles. Anyone who investigates with a thirst for truth will also come across it.

Did Jesus Christ break the Sabbath and thereby also do away with it? This question would unfortunately be answered with a resounding yes by a majority of “believers”. But these “believers” may have pretty much in common that they have read or heard this claim somewhere. Possibly from an evangelical pastor, let alone a liberal theologian. These “believers” may also have in common that they have not checked this statement by studying the Bible themselves. Unfortunately, it is also a fact that the new versions of the so-called Bible translations based on their own formulations support the assumption that Jesus Christ broke the Sabbath and thus abolished it.
Those who are not particularly “keen” on the truth will continue to grope in the dark and allow themselves to be misled without knowing it. Be it out of disinterest, out of laziness or simply because of the desire for melodious words.
The call to “obedience to God” has long been labeled as improper subservience in the position of a slave. This also in relation to a god who, according to the mixture of evolutionary theory and the “allegorical” account of creation, at some point initiated life and at some point surprisingly came by, imposed himself as supreme on people in order to subject them to slavery. The “emotional” belief, in which everything has to be felt emotionally, physically, now serves as a substitute. The love described in the Gospel is now a “devotional languishing” for a God who is everywhere and in everything and whose love for man outshines everything, even the rules, norms and statutes. God loves you, He accepts everyone no matter how it is.
This is what the structure of what is now called Christianity looks like.
But Jesus Christ never said a word, “stay as you are”. But clearly, only the “newborn” can enter through the gates into the kingdom of heaven. But of course that’s an issue. Much too uncomfortable, then rather just languish.
The impenetrable felt of deception is now seemingly insurmountable. But whoever is really looking for the truth will be sovereignly accompanied by the Holy Spirit through the jungle of false teachings and will also point out the truth. It still remains with the human being whether he accepts this knowledge. But at some point (soon) it will be too late.
The fact that the majority believes that the Sabbath was broken by Jesus Christ and also abolished can be seen quite clearly from the fact that the vast majority of believers go to church on Sunday instead of Saturday. Aside from the false claim that it was a “Jewish Sabbath,” the Sabbath has never been abolished. DThis was quite simply the arbitrary Initiative of the Roman Catholic Church. That this is not an insinuation, confirms the Church of Rome bluntly itself.
A popular passage for the alleged proof that Jesus Christ broke the Sabbath and thus abolished it is Jesus’ encounter with His disciples and the Pharisees on a Sabbath. The disciples plucked a few grains for a small meal. The Pharisees got upset and complained that this should not be done on a Sabbath. This event seems so important that three apostles bear witness to it. (Matthew 12, Mark 2 and Luke 6).
The three apostles unanimously report what Jesus Christ replied (King James Version, “textus receptus”).
Matthew 12:8: “For the Son of man is Lord even of the sabbath day.”
Mark 2:28: “Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.”
Luke 6:5: “And he said unto them, That the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.”
The following is found in the modified modern translations of the Bible:
“Gute Nachrichten, 2018” (German bible, translated)
Matthew 12:8: “The Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath; he has to determine what may be done on that day.”
Mark 2:28: “So the Son of Man is Lord also of the Sabbath; he has to determine what may be done on that day.”
Luke 6:5: “And Jesus added: The Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath; he has to determine what may be done on that day.”
Clearly, Jesus’ statement was simply added to in the “Gute Nachrichten”-Bible. This addition that Jesus may determine what may be done on the Sabbath does not exist in the Greek text. “Gute Nachrichten” points out in a footnote that this addition is a “clarifying addition”. This should visibly suggest that Jesus Christ is Lord of the Sabbath and may therefore simply abolish this day as it suits Him. He never said that part. The reader is shown how to think.
This is where the massive problem lies. Like many other new Bible translations, the “Gute Nachrichten”-Bible is based on the basic text of Nestle-Aland. Two little or no believers scientific theologians who drew their own conclusions. Neste-Aland Bibles have been officially “accepted and approved” by the Roman Catholic Church in the course of ecumenism. Because of this aspect alone, all alarm bells should be ringing immediately.
One simply puts words into the mouth of Jesus Christ in order to support one’s own argument (deception).
There is one more serious factor. Has it ever been forbidden to pluck grains of corn on a Sabbath? If yes, who banned this? Anyone who knows the Bible also knows that Jesus Christ accused the Pharisees several times because they imposed their own traditional and constantly supplemented rules and laws on the statutes of God. They forced people to obey human laws and not the rules established by God.
Now, with the argument that Jesus Christ broke the Sabbath, the Pharisee laws are presented as God’s laws. Prohibitions such as plucking ears of corn or carrying the mat were exclusively human regulations and these may very well be “violated”. If they even conflict with God’s rules, which did occur (e.g. exemption from the obligation to care for one’s parents if one worked for the synagogue), these man-made laws must even be ignored in order not to come into conflict with God’s law.
Jesus Christ never broke the Sabbath, nor did He abolish it. He ignored the rules of the arrogant Pharisees, nothing more, nothing less. The Roman Catholic catechism, which is officially classified as superior to the Bible (God’s laws) by this church, has a similar character to the Pharisees’ rules. But this form of arrogance and blasphemy is “genetically imprinted” on the Church of Rome.
The Sabbath was never abolished. This 7th day of the week (Saturday) to be sanctified, instituted by God, was already a part of creation, applies today as well and will apply even on the new earth. Anyone who claims that Jesus Christ broke the Sabbath is simply joining forces with the Pharisees.
The New Testament gives numerous examples that the Sabbath is still valid.
