Antimissionaries be like… What the rabbis say about the Sabbath being made for man – Episode 17


Episode 17 –

Yeshua saying, “the Sabbath was made for man and not man for the Sabbath” The phrase, “the Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath,” appears in the rabbinic literature of the Talmud (Mekilta 103b, Yoma 85b). This statement was a teaching by many Rabbinical scholars of Yeshua’s day. The Pharisic School of Hillel was famous for that quote. Yeshua was not saying anything new, unique, or separate from the Judaism of his day! He was in fact upholding the teachings of Judaism.
