Jesus as our Sabbath’s Rest in the New Covenant…

Concerning Jesus as our Sabbath’s Rest… (Hebrews 4)

We rest in Jesus from pursuit of self-righteousness through the works of the law that could never save but only condemned through the defining of our culpability before the Father void atonement (Romans 3:20; Galatians 2:16); therefore, Jesus offers us a “rest” by faith that the law could never provide (Luke 4:18; Matthew 11:28-20) as the law enslaved and killed by the letter but the Spirit gives life through faith in Jesus as our Lord (2 Corinthians 3:6).

All that the Sabbath edict foreshadowed is fulfilled in Messiah by faith (Colossians 2:16); therefore, we don’t pursue righteousness through days, edicts, dietary restrictions i.e. law-keeping but by faith in Jesus who is the fulfillment of the Law for all who believe and receive the imputation of Jesus’ righteousness by faith (Romans 6:14; Romans 8; Colossians 2:16; Galatians 2:16; 2 Corinthians 5:21).
