Dr. Amanda Benckhuysen, Professor of Old Testament at Calvin Theological Seminary, discusses “Living the Sabbath“.
What does it mean for Christians to “keep the Sabbath”? What is the significance of the Sabbath in Exodus/the Old Testament and how can that inform our practice of Sabbath today? What are some practical steps we can take to more fully receive the gift of Sabbath?
In this session, we will explore the significance of Sabbath for ancient Israel, reflect together on how the Old Testament theology of Sabbath can inform our own understanding of what it means to enter into God’s rest and share practical ideas for more fully embracing the gift of Sabbath.
