The Historical Development of the PCA Book of Church Order

Chapter 48 : The Sanctification of the Lord's Day

Paragraph 2 :

48-2. God commanded His Old Testament people to keep holy the last day of the week, but He sanctified the first day as the Sabbath by the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ from the dead. For this reason the Church of the new dispensation has from the time of the apostles kept holy the first day of the week as the Lord’s Day.
