Blog Series: Sabbath and Sunday in the Early Church: Ignatius of Antioch (Pt. 5 of 5)

Within this series of posts I am investigating some of the contextual factors that influenced the early church’s decision for Sunday gathering. In previous posts I have highlighted several contextual factors important to the Sabbath/Lord’s Day discussion in the early church. In the previous post I looked at the Didache’s teaching about the Lord’s Day. In this post I want to examine what Ignatius of Antioch taught about “sabbatizing” and Lord’s Day observance.
