Hi everyone God bless you all… i’ve wondering how do you guys interpret this these verses…
For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.” — Exodus 20:11
“It is a sign forever between me and the people of Israel that in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested and was refreshed.” — Exodus 31:17
The Sabbath was a day of rest in commemoration of the completed creation: “The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath” (Mark 2:27).
Another question if the creation days were poetic (as many of you say)…then why would God make his people to rest on the seventh day?
