In recent years, a small group of believers have challenged the long-established method of observing the Sabbath. They claim that the seventh day should not be based on the weekly cycle, but rather the monthly lunar cycle should be used to indicate when the Sabbath is observed. They further reason that the new moon should be honored as a type of Sabbath. Is there any validity to lunar Sabbaths? Did God intend His sanctified seventh day to be calculated according to the new moon, or should it be kept in a sequence of every seven days regardless of when the new moon occurs? What evidence do the Scriptures and history provide?
