When is the Sabbath?

Question:

On which day of the week is the Sabbath, according to the Holy Bible?

My Reply:
The Jews celebrate the Sabbath on Saturday, or Friday evening after sundown (which is the beginning of Saturday).  For in the same way that God worked 6 days creating, and rested on the 7th, so must the Israelites.

Though we Christians celebrate the Sabbath on Sunday, for it's the day that Jesus was resurrected from the dead. I guess if you figure, Jesus was dead in the ground on Saturday, the Sabbath. So from that moment on, the Saturday Sabbath was a day of mourning. The day He was resurrected (Sunday) is a day of celebration, and holy celebration at that, which is why our Sabbath is Sunday. But then, that's not explained in the Bible. In fact, according to the Bible, the new Christians (such as in Acts) gathered together EVERY day, not just one. Plus, since Christianity had soon become illegal, many believers met whenever they could, which wasn't always on the same day of the week.

The point to look at is what the Sabbath is for, more so than on what day it is...it's made to be holy, set apart for your time with the Lord.
