About-

What is the Christian Lord’s Day? Why is it of continued importance? What does is represent? These and other questions will be addressed in The Lord’s Day in Scripture.



The Lord’s Day is the scriptural name for the Christian day of worship on the first day of the week. The Lord’s Day is the Lord’s Day—the day of which the Lord Jesus Christ took possession by his resurrection on the first day of the week. The day of Christ’s resurrection was prophesied in the Old Testament to be on the third day, fulfilled in the New Testament on the first day of the week, and celebrated as the Lord’s Day. Therefore, the time of the resurrection is directly connected to the event of the resurrection.



The Lord’s Day in Scripture establishes the scriptural basis for the Lord’s Day. It seeks to help each Christian appreciate worship, fellowship, and meaning in church through a better understanding of what the Lord’s Day is and is not.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“The Lord’s Day is often associated with a required day of rest. Rodney Nelson shows that the day is not commanded in Scripture, nor was it kept as a day of rest in the early church. But it is a day rich in meaning, as a commemoration of the resurrection of the Lord, a celebration of his victory over sin and death, and a reminder that we will also be resurrected.”

—Michael Morrison, Professor of New Testament, Grace Communion Seminary



“After years of teaching and administering in a Christian school, Rodney Nelson presents us with an introduction to this question: does the Bible teach that Christian corporate worship should take place in a specified time or are believers free to choose? Read this book to find out!”

—Freeman Barton, Retired Director of Goddard Library, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary



“Rodney Nelson has provided the church a timely and much needed study on the Lord’s Day in Scripture.”

—Dale Ratzlaff, author of Sabbath in Christ



“This little book opens the key passages and crucial interpretive issues in the Lord’s Day debate. Rod Nelson has calmly and carefully evaluated the biblical texts and here offers a helpful entry point for those seeking to understand the meaning and significance of the Lord’s Day in the New Testament.”

—Mark Taylor, Gather for Him Christian College
