    I have never seen that one before. Well you are keeping the most important part. And while you are sleeping, you are resting anyhow so add 6-9 hours to the 12 you keep.

    The references you gave were far to obtuse for me to plough through, and I certainly am not going to change from keeping a 24hr Sabbath.

    Here is a scripture showing that Nehemiah closed the city gates at sunset because he considered trading on the full 24 hour Sabbath Day to be a sin.

    Nehemiah 13:9
    And it came to pass, that when the gates of Jerusalem began to be dark before the sabbath, H7676 I commanded that the gates should be shut, and charged that they should not be opened till after the sabbath: H7676 and some of my servants set I at the gates, that there should no burden be brought in on the sabbath H7676 day.

    Ok that is a tricky one but it says when “it began to be dark before the sabbath”...read it slowly and realize that according to evening to evening sabbaths believers as it becomes dark it becomes Sabbath NOT a darkness before Sabbath...

    They believe it becomes Sabbath as it becomes dark...there is no darkness before the sabbath for them...

    But if you believe days begin in the morning there is a night full of darkness before the day...so in this case the gates were closed as they became dark before the Sabbath...that darkness before sabbath is when the gates were closed...so when morning came everything was at rest not getting to rest setting up booths organizing wares settling down for when the Sabbath day began and passed to begin selling again...time is money...even in the OT is why Nehemiah would have to begin closing the gates at noon before all the hustle and bustle of caravans loaded with goods settled in before sunset...but he didn’t he closed the gates as it began to be dark BEFORE the Sabbath...not for the Sabbath

    You have the obvious Sabbath example of Christ being killed before the start of the Sabbath. The scribes and Pharisees and Jesus' friends were rushing to get him off the cross and into the grave before sunset. Obviously all the Jews crucifying Jesus believed the Sabbath began at sunset. And all counts of Jesus in the grave start at sunset, which was the start of the Sabbath.

    Let’s not underestimate all that had to happen that evening...especially if before sunset...

    Getting an audience with government officers during holidaze is difficult even today...imagine too the hustle and bustle of crowds hurrying to prepare not only for the Sabbath but passover an annual feast where everyone was in town...

    http://kingdominfo.net/truth/?p=5

    The Day of Preparation Before The Feast of Unleavened Bread

    Matthew 27:57-62
    Mark 15:42-46
    Luke 23:50-54
    John 19:38-42

    If you are reckoning time from sunset to sunset, it is very difficult to see the flow or harmony between the Torah (law) account of the Passover and the Gospel account of the Messiah Crucifixion on Passover.

    Sequence of events:

    1. Joseph of Arimathea prepared the body of The Messiah to be buried on the Preparation Day before the Holy Day.

    2. John 19:31 (King James Version): The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation, that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the sabbath day, (for that sabbath day was an high day,) besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away.

    He knew that he had to get the body ready for burial as soon as possible on the preparation day (Passover) before the Feast of Unleavened Bread (The Holy Day). Joseph knew that the body of The Messiah could not be left hanging overnight according to the Law or Torah. Take a look at Deuteronomy 21:22-23 & Joshua 10:26-27 .

    3. It was already " between the evening" (from 3:00 pm to sunset toward the beginning of darkness or night) on the Day of Preparation (i.e. Wednesday evening) when Joseph requested permission from Pilate to take The Messiah's body (See Matthew 27:57-58; Mark 15:42-43). .

    4. Pilate sent a centurion to verify that The Messiah was dead (Mark 15:44-45).

    5. Joseph purchased linen strips to wrap the body of The Messiah (Mark 15:46).

    6. Joseph returned to the place of the crucifixion to take down the body (Mark 15:46, John 20:27).

    7. Nicodemus shows up with approximately 100 pounds of myrrh and aloes to prep the body for burial (John. 19:39, 40).

    8. The body of The Messiah was taken to the tomb and a stone was rolled in front of it (Mark. 15:46; John. 19:41).

    Remember this: It was already between the evenings when Joseph got permission from Pilate to take the body.

    By the time they got the body buried, it would have been at sunset going into the night and the Sabbath (which started the next morning) was drawing near (Luke 23:54).

    Luke 23:54 (King James Version)
    54 And that day was the preparation, and the Sabbath drew on.

    Let's look up the words "drew on"”


    ...Sabbath began to dawn...

    Taking a dead weight body off a cross and carrying it to a tomb and beginning a burial of washing and wrapping is not a 15 min operation...

    Don’t mean to derail this thread maybe continue in the other one...?

    Clefty, Jews have been keeping the Sabbath since forever. They all know it is from sunset to sunset, as the evening and the morning were the first day.

    I can see you are passionate about it, and I say "Great for you". You are wrong, but like I said, if it floats your boat, go for it.

    Those are your words, not mine. I said that there are not two moral laws that conflict with each other. I never said anything about moral dilemmas not existing. Moral dilemmas have to do with deciding which is the right course of action in a situation where there are no desirable options. Discussing them has to do with more than just the choice but the circumstances that led to that choice having to be made. It's an altogether different discussion than talking about whether a law against murder could conflict with a law against rape or a moral law against disrespecting your parents could conflict with one against envying your neighbor's wife. You will never find yourself having to decide which moral law you have to break. The exception, if there is one, might come as a direct result of having already broken another moral law but I can't even think of an example of that at the moment.
