Click to ViewThe first time any Jewish holy day is mentioned in scripture, it always lacks the definite article (a Sabbath).

  1. All the Jewish holy days are never introduced the first time in scripture with the definite article "the" but with the indefinite "a" or "an".
  2. The indefinite article is used both before and after something has been instituted, but the definite article (THE Sabbath) is never used the first time something is introduced.
  3. This powerful argument proves that the weekly Sabbath did not exist before Ex 16:23.
  4. What makes it irrefutable, is the fact that every Jewish Holy Day follows this same pattern!
