Sabbath? What's that?

Rest? What's that?
Many cultures today don't take time for rest. Work (success) is too important.

As Christians, how should we understand rest/sabbath?

Do we need to take a day of rest? What does it mean to rest?

Keep OT in mind here. 10 commandments, Levitical Law, and the whole God-Israel narrative. Also check out Hebrews 4 and also Romans.

  1. My experience has been that America is the most success/time driven in the world...and that's maybe not a good thing. In most of Europe and South America being on time is not the standard, but the exception. Another interesting fact is that America has fewer and shorter holidays than any other culture. I often wonder if the reason US Christians need (and we do need) to take the sabbath so seriously is because our culture demands more of us than most.
