Sabbath and the Revealer, part 4

In Cosmic Conflict

We finished last time with a telling contrast. The Sabbath verb in Genesis is REST. The Sabbath verb in the Gospeol of John is WORK. Has the latter replaced the former almost to the point of jeopardizing the Sabbath? Are these verbs and their corresponding nouns in conflict, or are they complementary? We need to put these questions on hold until we have studied the second Sabbath healing in John, that of the man born blind in John 9. In that story a blind man is restored to sight, and the seeing become blind.
