      Today, many Christian traditions consider Sunday to be the Christian Sabbath day. They base this concept on verses like Mark and Luke where Jesus says he is "Lord even of the Sabbath," implying that he has the power to change the Sabbath to a different day.   Breakthrough Discovery on Constantine and the Sabbath By Kelly McDonald, Jr. In the various articles and books written about Sabbath history, the Roman Emperor Constantine is among the most mentioned individuals.

CONSTANTINOPLE “The people of Constantinople, and almost everywhere, assemble together on the Sabbath, as well as on the first day of the week, which custom is never observed at Rome or at Alexandria.” Socrates, Ecclesiastical History, Book 7, chap Jewish Christians celebrated the Sabbath day of rest AND met for Christian worship on Sunday mornings.

Sweden: "We will now endeavour to show that the sanctification of the Sabbath has its foundation and its origin in a law which God at creation itself established for the whole world, and as a consequence thereof .

For several centuries, some Christians kept Sabbath on the seventh day of the week, Saturday, while others kept Sunday holy.
