  • You mention the sabbath in the Bible, (Saturday, Sábado, in Spanish and Portuguese, Samedi in French come from that, I think). For the Hebrew people of the Bible, celebrating the sabbath would indeed be on our Saturday – that’s the day God ‘rested’. The day after the sabbath was the day of the resurrection and was ‘the first day of the week’ (see in the bible, Luke 24 “On the first day of the week…. he has risen!”). This was our Sunday, which only became the ‘rest’ day when Christians started to celebrate the day of Christ’s resurrection. Therefore, following this logic, Sunday is the first day of the week!
    Of course, Monday is the first day of our working week or school week! (ie Mon-Fri!)

  • The Bible also calls Sunday the first day of the week when speaking about the day when Jesus rose from the dead. Matthew 28:1reads, “After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb”.And goes on to tell the story of Jesus’s resurection. So it is the first day of the week not only people of Jewish faith, but also for Christians.

    It refers a Bible reader to the first day of creation.The day when Jesus reaises from the dead becomes day one of the new creation. The new creation in Jesus Christ, the day when death no longer has the final word. Which is also why Sunday is the sacred day for Christians.

    Some calendars reflect this by having Sunday at the beginning of the week, not at the end.
