[…] Early in his ministry, Meredith Kline held basically a traditional reformed view of the sabbath, and you can even see hints of this in the article under discussion. As he continued to study these issues, he came to view the Sabbath as fulfilled in Christ, and no longer binding on Christians as a day of religious obligation. Kline’s mature view of the Sabbath is discussed here: https://meredithkline.com/146/ […]
[…] The “Day of the Lord” (Lord’s Day), is a consistent theme of the OT. It is a day when God brings judgement upon the ungodly. Unfortunately, we Christians (including myself!) are not shaped in our thinking by the OT nearly enough, and so often we simply run along with our tradition that “the Lord’s day is Sunday”, without ever so much as thinking what the significance of the relationship the OT “Lord’s Day” might be. Meredith Kline argues that Rev 1:10 is intentionally not referring to the OT “Lord’s Day” because of the difference in the Greek between the Septuagint “Lord’s day”, and John’s “Lord’s day”, but that John had to be purposeful to avoid this direct association because any readers with OT knowledge would be so quick to make it. Kline doesn’t believe the Lord’s day in Rev 1:10 is referring to “Sunday.” I disagree, but you can find a discussion of his view here: https://meredithkline.com/146/ […]
