Sabbatarians often remind us that "Jesus, our example, kept the weekly Sabbath holy", but this doesn't prove we should keep the Sabbath today, because Jesus, our example, also kept animal sacrifices.
Actual Sabbatarian false argument: "Christ our example kept the Sabbath! Therefore we must keep the Sabbath!"
If Jesus' example proves we must keep the Sabbath, then it also proves we should keep animal sacrifices and perform circumcision! Jesus was circumcised! What proves to much proves nothing at all!
Sabbatarians break Jesus example of keeping the Passover! Jesus kept the Passover and every other Jewish feast day too! Mt 26:17-18
Sabbatarians break Jesus command to keep all the ceremonial Laws of Moses! Mt 23:2 "The scribes and the Pharisees have seated themselves in the chair of Moses; therefore all that they tell you, do and observe"
Sabbatarians break Jesus command to offer animal sacrifices: Luke 5:14 (Mark 1:44) And He ordered him to tell no one, "But go and show yourself to the priest, and make an offering for your cleansing, just as Moses commanded, for a testimony to them."
When Sabbatarians explain to you why they don't follow Jesus example or command to keep the Law of Moses, you will know why Christians don't need to follow Jesus example of keeping the Sabbath day. Jesus was born and died under the Old covenant and Jewish law: Gal 4:4
Jesus kept many things in addition to the Sabbath law. He kept the entire ceremonial law of Moses!
