The disciples still kept sabbath after the cross

I disagree that the ten commandments ended with Jesus. We have grace and are no longer under the curse of the law but the law itself has not passed away.

"Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished." - Matthew 5:17,18

I don't see where disciples kept the Sabbath and if Moses' law did not end I hope you only eat kosher food and follow the other 121 laws that went with it.

I think it is still important to set apart one day of the week for God and Godly things. I don't think which day is really very important. It could be Wednesday for all I care.

But the commandment specifically says the seventh day?

"Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a sabbath to the Lord your God." - Exodus 20:8,9

So according to the scripture you work six days out of the week. The other day, the seventh, the one on which you do not work, is the Sabbath. I don't think the scripture specifies that it must be on the seventh day of the week, only that one day should be set apart from the other six. The "seventh" day, the one that's different from the other six, could be the seventh day of the week as it was in Jewish custom, or the first day of the week as it is in the Christian custom, or any other day for that matter. It's important to set aside and devote time for the Lord. I don't think he's very particular about what specific time you set aside, just that you set it aside. For the purposes of attending church it just makes it easier if we can all agree on the same day to set aside to make our schedules agree. We happen to set aside Sunday. I think it's as good a choice as any other.

So basically that is right! Why is there such a thing called the New Testament .. Like what? I am Jewish and I go by the old one and it makes so much more sence! Like it is supposed to be Saturday not Sunday... Try to go on YouTube and you will understand more why things in Christianity don't make sence.. Or at least to me!:)

Yes it still matters! And there is NO scriptural change to be found! The Catholic Church admits to changing it.
