Representation of God resting on the Sabbath

THE SABBATH DAY For thousands of years, the Jews have observed their Sabbath - a day set aside for rest and religious observance to mark God's day of rest after the creation - on a Saturday. The early Christians decided to make Sunday their Sabbath, and this day is still a day of rest in Christian countries.
