16. What striking testimony is borne by Neander, the noted church historian, regarding the origin of the Sunday Sabbath?


"Opposition to Judaism introduced the particular festival of Sunday very early, indeed, into the place of the
Sabbath. . . . The festival of Sunday, like all other festivals, was always only a human ordinance, and it was
far from the intentions of the apostles to establish a divine command in this respect, far from them, and
from the early apostolic church, to transfer the laws of the Sabbath to Sunday. Perhaps at the end of the
second century a false application of this kind had begun to take place; for men appear by that time to have
considered laboring on Sunday as a sin."-Neander's "Church History," Rose's translation, page 186.
