How do we make sense of Girolamo Zanchi's comments about the observance of the Lord's Day? Previous to the statement below, he argued that the word of God was the church's only rule in religious matters. In light of that point, I presume that when he refers to a tradition below, he is referring to an apostolically approved tradition, which has the same authority as an express command? XII. Traditions truely apostolicall and catholicke are to be retained in the church. And the traditions in meane while, which it is manifestlie knowne have come from the apostles, to have beene ever observed in all churches as that of hallowing the Lords daie in place of the sabaoth and such like; and allthough there be no expresse commandement in the scriptures for the observing of them, yet wee iudge that they are to be retained in the church.
