The Adventist Sabbath Paradox - Ellen White's endorsement.

Rate this Entry
The real Seventh-day Adventist dilemma is that Ellen White endorsed it...
...Ellen says that Jesus rested in Joseph's tomb on a weekly Sabbath...
...and that this Sabbath was also a Passover.

"At last Jesus was at rest. The long day of shame and torture was ended. As the last rays of the setting sun ushered in the Sabbath, the Son of God lay in quietude in Joseph's tomb. His work completed, His hands folded in peace, He rested through the sacred hours of the Sabbath day.

"With this scene the day upon which Jesus rested is forever linked. For "His work is perfect;" and "whatsoever God doeth, it shall be forever." Deut. 32:4; Eccl. 3:14. When there shall be a "restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began" (Acts 3:21), the creation Sabbath, the day on which Jesus lay at rest in Joseph's tomb, will still be a day of rest and rejoicing. Heaven and earth will unite in praise, as "from one Sabbath to another" (Isa. 66:23) the nations of the saved shall bow in joyful worship to God and the Lamb." Ellen White DA Chapter 80

"That was a never-to-be-forgotten Sabbath to the sorrowing disciples, and also to the priests, rulers, scribes, and people. At the setting of the sun on the evening of the preparation day the trumpets sounded, signifying that the Sabbath had begun. The Passover was observed as it had been for centuries, while He to whom it pointed had been slain by wicked hands, and lay in Joseph's tomb." Ibid


Ellen White also endorsed the 31AD crucifixion year and the Gregorian Saturday/Sabbath identity...
...but you can't have a Saturday - Sabbath - Passover combination in 31 AD.



The SDA system has created a paradox which can't be resolved without at least one of the following...
...changing their view of Ellen's inspiration...
...redefining the Sabbath...
...reviewing their 457 BC - 1844 AD prophetic scheme...
...ignoring history, scripture and the astronomical data.
