From Sabbath to Lord’s Day « Green Baggins

A good blog from Rev. Lane Keister from a while back. But how does Lane know this:

From this it needs to be asked: when did Jesus enter into that rest, enabling His people to follow? The answer must be two-fold: 1. the weekly Sabbath is NOT when he entered that rest: nothing of such earth-shattering importance is ever mentioned about Jesus happening on the Sabbath; 2. the only possible times as to when he could have entered that rest are the resurrection and the ascension, both of which happened on Sunday.

Was it not 40 days after the resurrection and 10 days before Pentecost? Which would not be Sunday.
