The Ten Commandments – Keep the Sabbath

This and the next commandment are not repeated in the New Testament. Why was the Sabbath so important for Israel, and how did they get it wrong? What should we take from this command for our new covenant relationship with God?

And he looked around at them with anger, grieved at their hardness of heart, and said to the man, ‘Stretch out your hand.’ He stretched it out, and his hand was restored.
