Sign
The Pharisees asked Jesus for a sign to prove that He is the Messiah. The only sign Jesus gave them is the sign of the prophet Jonah.
"For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the whale so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth."Mathew12:39-40.John 11:9 shows Jesus referred to the amount of sunlight in a day as 12 hours. So Jesus knew exactly what He was talking about and He meant 72 hours. But the problem is people have been trying for ages to cramp three days and three nights into 36 hours from good Friday to Easter Monday morning.A true believer will believe whatever comes out of His mouth and if you believed in the Jesus who was buried for 36 hours and rose again on an Easter Monday then you are denying the real YAHUSHUWAH who died for your sins.
Day of Death
Jesus Himself predicted the day He will be crusified in.
"Ye know that after two days is the feast of Passover and the Son of man is betrayed to be crucified."Mathew 261-2. He said he is going to be killed on the day of Passover. Jesus was crucified in the year 31.A.D and according to the Jewish calender, the Passover for that year fell on a Wednesday.
Israel used to observe Passover by killing an unblemished lamb and smearing the blood on every doorpost in order to escape the angel of death.
1Corinthians 5:7 says that Christ is now our Passover as He was sacrificed and His blood shed in order for true believers to escape death. Jesus was crucified and buried on the day of Passover,31.A.D.
Preparation Day
All four Gospel testifies that Jesus was crucified on preparation day.Preparation day is a day before a Sabbath.But John was very specific. "..because it was preparation day, that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the Sabbath (for that Sabbath was an high day)."John 19:31.A high day means it was an annual Sabbath. It is not an ordinary weekly seventh day Sabbath.It also can fall on any day of the week.
Key in Leviticus
Leviticus 23:5-7."In the fourteenth day of the same month at even is the Lord's Passover. And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the feast of unleavened bread... Ye shall have no servile work therein." Here we can see that the Passover was also that day of preparation meant by the Gospels.Jesus died on Passover which was also preparation day. "And that day was the preparation day and the Sabbath and drew on."Luke 23:54.
Sabbath After Passover
Mark 16:1 "And when the Sabbath came past Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of James and Salome had bought sweet spices so that they might come and annoint Him." This verse refers to the annual Sabbath (15th) after Passover(14 th).Jesus died around 3 pm and these women following the body to the burial before sunset would simply leave no time for shopping.
The Weekly Sabbath
Luke 23:56 "And they returned and prepared spices and ointments and rested the Sabbath day according to the COMMANDMENTS." Here Luke was referring to the weekly Sabbath as demanded by the Ten Commandments.The canonized Gospels were referring to two Sabbaths in the same week all along. After the burial on the even of Passover(Wednesday) they rested for the annual Sabbath of unleavened bread(Thursday).The next day would be Friday and the women collected and prepared spices and ointments. Then they again rested for the weekly Sabbath(Saturday)
Matthew 28:1 "In the end of the Sabbath as it began to dawn towards the first day of the week came Mary Magdalene..." The inspired Greek text reads "after the Sabbaths." It is plural meaning more than one Sabbath in that particular week. While many points to these as contradictions in the four Gospels, they are in fact complementing each.
Risen
According to Mark15:34 Jesus died around the ninth hour of daylight which is around 3pm and was buried the same day before the Passover or Wednesday sunset. So three days and there nights later would end just before the sunset on Saturday or the seventh day of the week or the Lord's day.Jesus Christ did not rise from the dead on Sunday morning.
May God be glorified for unwavering love

Oh my God have mercy.
This is getting worse.
Please see and quote Acts 18:4 for all to see and not just the ones that suits your theory.
"And every SABBATH Paul reasoned with them the Jews and Greeks(gentile) in the synagogue."

Deliberately ignoring scripture that goes against traditional belief is like adding fuel to an already fiery inferno.
Jesus as the Word, through God's guidances created the earth and the heavens. He also created the seventh day as the Sabbath.
He emphasized this in Mark 2:27 in which He said,"The Sabbath was MADE FOR MAN,and not man for the Sabbath.
Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the Sabbath."

God's holy Word imply mankind as a whole and not the Hebrew nation only or for the Jews only. Man of all races.
This does imply that

Is the Sabbath Binding on Christians Today?

 

It is believed that the Old Testament regulations governing Sabbath observances are ceremonial, not moral, aspects of the law. As such, they are no longer in force, but have passed away along with the sacrificial system, the Levitical priesthood, and all other aspects of Moses' law that prefigured Christ. Here are the reasons we hold this view.

  1. In      Colossians 2:16-17, Paul explicitly refers to the Sabbath as a shadow of      Christ, which is no longer binding since the substance (Christ) has come.      It is quite clear in those verses that the weekly Sabbath is in view. The      phrase "a festival or a new moon or a Sabbath day" refers to the      annual, monthly, and weekly holy days of the Jewish calendar (cf. 1      Chronicles 23:31; 2 Chronicles 2:4, 31:3; Ezekiel 45:17; Hosea 2:11). If      Paul were referring to special ceremonial dates of rest in that passage,      why would he have used the word "Sabbath?" He had already      mentioned the ceremonial dates when he spoke of festivals and new moons.
  2. The      Sabbath was the sign to Israel of the Mosaic Covenant (Exodus 31:16-17;      Ezekiel 20:12; Nehemiah 9:14). Since we are now under the New Covenant      (Hebrews 8), we are no longer required to observe the sign of the Mosaic      Covenant.
  3. The New      Testament never commands Christians to observe the Sabbath.
  4. In      our only glimpse of an early church worship service in the New Testament,      the church met on the first day of the week (Acts 20:7).
  5. Nowhere      in the Old Testament are the Gentile nations commanded to observe the      Sabbath or condemned for failing to do so. That is certainly strange if      Sabbath observance were meant to be an eternal moral principle.
  6. There      is no evidence in the Bible of anyone keeping the Sabbath before the time      of Moses, nor are there any commands in the Bible to keep the Sabbath      before the giving of the law at Mt. Sinai.
  7. When      the Apostles met at the Jerusalem council (Acts 15), they did not impose      Sabbath keeping on the Gentile believers.
  8. The      apostle Paul warned the Gentiles about many different sins in his      epistles, but breaking the Sabbath was never one of them.
  9. In      Galatians 4:10-11, Paul rebukes the Galatians for thinking God expected      them to observe special days (including the Sabbath).
  10. In      Romans 14:5, Paul forbids those who observe the Sabbath (these were no      doubt Jewish believers) to condemn those who do not (Gentile believers).
  11. The      early church fathers, from Ignatius to Augustine, taught that the Old      Testament Sabbath had been abolished and that the first day of the week      (Sunday) was the day when Christians should meet for worship (contrary to      the claim of many seventh-day Sabbatarians who claim that Sunday worship      was not instituted until the fourth century).
  12. Sunday      has not replaced Saturday as the Sabbath. Rather the Lord's Day is a time      when believers gather to commemorate His resurrection, which occurred on      the first day of the week. Every day to the believer is one of Sabbath      rest, since we have ceased from our spiritual labor and are resting in the      salvation of the Lord (Hebrews 4:9-11).

 

So while we still follow the pattern of designating one day of the week a day for the Lord's people to gather in worship, we do not refer to this as "the Sabbath."

 

John Calvin took a similar position. He wrote,

There were three reasons for giving this [fourth] commandment: First, with the seventh day of rest the Lord wished to give to the people of Israel an image of spiritual rest, whereby believers must cease from their own works in order to let the Lord work in them. Secondly, he wished that there be an established day in which believers might assemble in order to hear his Law and worship him. Thirdly, he willed that one day of rest be granted to servants and to those who live under the power of others so that they might have a relaxation from their labor. The latter, however, is rather an inferred than a principal reason.

As to the first reason, there is no doubt that it ceased in Christ; because he is the truth by the presence of which all images vanish. He is the reality at whose advent all shadows are abandoned. Hence St. Paul (Colossians 2:17) affirms that the Sabbath has been a shadow of a reality yet to be. And he declares else-where its truth when in the letter to the Romans, chapter 6:8, he teaches us that we are buried with Christ in order that by his death we may die to the corruption of our flesh. And this is not done in one day, but during all the course of our life, until altogether dead in our own selves, we may be filled with the life of God. Hence, superstitious observance of days must remain far from Christians.

The two last reasons, however, must not be numbered among the shadows of old. Rather, they are equally valid for all ages. Hence, though the Sabbath is abrogated, it so happens among us that we still convene on certain days in order to hear the word of God, to break the [mystic] bread of the Supper, and to offer public prayers; and, moreover, in order that some relaxation from their toil be given to servants and workingmen. As our human weakness does not allow such assemblies to meet every day, the day observed by the Jews has been taken away (as a good device for eliminating superstition) and another day has been destined to this use. This was necessary for securing and maintaining order and peace in the Church.

As the truth therefore was given to the Jews under a figure, so to us on the contrary truth is shown without shadows in order, first of all, that we meditate all our life on a perpetual Sabbath from our works so that the Lord may operate in us by his spirit; secondly, in order that we observe the legitimate order of the Church for listening to the word of God, for administering the sacraments, and for public prayers; thirdly, in order that we do not oppress inhumanly with work those who are subject to us. [From Instruction in Faith, Calvin's own 1537 digest of the Institutes of the Christian Religion, sec. 8, "The Law of the Lord"].

Colossians 2:16-17

Colossians 2:16-17 reads,"Let no man therefore judge you in meat or in drinks or in respect of an holyday or of the new moon or of the Sabbath days:
17 Which are a shadow of things to come;but the body is of Christ.

The first thing we should know is the word 'is' at the end of verse 17 is in italic which means that it was added by translators.
It is stressing the point that what we observe or church doctrines should never be determined by any other means but the Body of Christ which is the church.The church will determine doctrines by what is inspired in the Word of God.
"Which are a shadow of things to come.."
The Sabbath is a shadow of the coming millennium. You cannot separate a shadow from an object.
People be advised that the two verses in no way originally intended to show that the Sabbath day and holydays have been shelved.
Paul supported and observed God's Sabbath so please Joe don't mislead the people with all these twisting of the scripture. I'm now wondering by whose authority you are now working under.God's or Satanic motive.

False Humility

 

Colossians 2:16-17
16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: 17 Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ. (KJV)

 

 

There must be no submission to former legalism. 2:16–17.

16. Let no man therefore judge you. Sit in judgment, take you to task, deciding for you, criticizing and condemning. Paul is encouraging the Colossians not to be enslaved by legalism, ritualism, rites, and ceremonies.

17. Which are a shadow. A shadow is not the real thing. There is a difference between the shadow and the substance. Symbols and types may stimulate thought, may awaken emotions, may convey divine truth, and may even strengthen faith; but beyond this they are meaningless and dangerous, and may replace the Living Christ. Mosaic institutions are of value, setting forth man’s need for pardon, purity, and holiness; and setting forth God’s provision of a great high priest, an atonement, and fellowship with God. Why look at the shadow when we can look to Christ, the Author and the Finisher of our faith? These ceremonies are shadows, superseded, and should be abandoned. Since Christ has come, we no longer need the symbols (Heb 8:13; 10:1).

False Teaching at Colosse

 

Good truths are often corrupted. The apostle Paul spent much of his time battling false teachers who came behind him and added their own “spin” to the gospel. He wrote to the Christians at Colosse partly to correct a heresy about God and spirituality that had begun to take root there.

Even at this early stage in the church’s life, before any heresies had developed far enough to be labeled with names, Jewish mysticism, Jewish legalism, and Greek philosophy had mixed in with true Christian doctrine. The kind of doctrine that was infecting Colosse would eventually be called Gnosticism. This was a prominent Christian heresy in the second and third centuries. Gnosticism taught that special knowledge was needed for a soul to break from the physical realm into the spiritual realm. As this false doctrine developed, it claimed that salvation could only be obtained through such special knowledge. In this way the Gnostics replaced faith with intellect.

Gnosticism followed the Greek philosophy that matter was inherently evil. Only nonphysical, “spiritual” realities were good. Hence, Gnostics did not believe that God created the world or that Christ came in a physical body. According to the Gnostics, an angel or secondary god created the material universe. Paul corrected this error in Colosse by stating clearly that Christ is the Creator and Sustainer of all, the supreme Head over the church and over all other authorities.

Gnosticism affected a person’s morality in one of two ways. One tendency was indulgence. This sort of Gnostic reasoned that since the body was evil and the spirit was good, nothing done by the body could harm the spirit. These Gnostics tended to give in to every sensual desire, denying themselves nothing. They believed that because they had God’s grace and because the physical body was of no account, they could do whatever they wanted with their bodies. The apostle John dealt with this type of Gnosticism in First John, as did Paul in First Corinthians.

The second moral outcome of Gnosticism was asceticism. Ascetics reasoned that because the body is bad, it should be denied every pleasure. They hoped that denial of the body would elevate the spirit. Paul’s opponents at Colosse were ascetics. They found legalism alluring, and the strict Jewish laws (see 2:16) meshed easily with their harsh, self-denying rituals. Paul warned his readers that such rituals are useless and have no spiritual value (2:20–23).

The main problem with the heresy at Colosse was its denial of who Christ is. These false teachers denied that Jesus is the Creator who came in the flesh, that He is God who became man. Their rejection of the deity of Christ led them to seek salvation through their intellect or through the abuse of one’s body. Such efforts served only to hide the truth, that salvation is found only in Christ.

Sabbath Keeping is Done Away With “in Christ”

 

 

Colossians 2:16-17
16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: 17 Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ. (KJV)

 

Colossians 2:16-17
16 So don’t let anyone condemn you for what you eat or drink, or for not celebrating certain holy days or new moon ceremonies or Sabbaths. 17 For these rules are only shadows of the reality yet to come. And Christ himself is that reality. (NLT)

 

Commentary:

 

2:16 Once again the Apostle Paul is ready to make the application of what he has just been stating. We might summarize the foregoing as follows: The Colossians had died to all efforts to please God by the flesh. They had not only died, but they had been buried with Christ and had risen with Christ to a new kind of life. Therefore they should be done forever with the Judaizers and Gnostics, who were trying to draw them back to the very things to which the Colossians had died. So let no one judge you in food or in drink, or regarding a festival or a new moon or sabbaths. All human religions place men under bondage to ordinances, rules, regulations, and a religious calendar. This calendar usually includes annual observances (holy days), monthly festivals (new moons), or weekly holidays (sabbaths). The expression “Therefore let no one judge you” means that a Christian cannot be justly condemned by others if, for instance, he eats pork, or if he fails to observe religious festivals or holy days. Some false cults, such as Spiritism, insist on their members abstaining from meats. For centuries Roman Catholics were not supposed to eat meat on Friday. Many churches require abstinence from certain foods during Lent. Others, like the Mormons, say that a person cannot be a member in good standing if he drinks tea or coffee. Still others, notably the Seventh Day Adventists, insist that a person must keep the Sabbath in order to please God. The Christian is not under such ordinances. For a fuller treatment of the law, the Sabbath, and legalism, see the excurses at Matthew 5:18, 12:8, and Galatians 6:18.

2:17 The Jewish religious observances were a shadow of things to come, but the substance (or body) is Christ’s. They were instituted in the OT as a pre-picture. For instance, the Sabbath was given as a type of the rest which would be the portion of all who believed on the Lord Jesus Christ. Now that the Lord Jesus has come, why should men continue to be occupied with the shadows? It is the same as being occupied with a picture when the very person pictured is present. [1]

It either you are ignorant or something is wrong with you Mr Joe.

THE WORD 'IS' AT THE END OF VERSE 17 WAS ADDED BY TRANSLATORS.IT IS NOT IN THE ORIGINAL GREEK TEXT.READ IT WITHOUT IS AND YOU WILL HAVE A TOTAL DIFFERENT MEANING.

KAKUA NA VAVULITAKA TIKO NA LASU.O SETANI GA NA TUI NI LASU.
OCA SARAGA NA VAMACALA.

JISU NI LOMANI IRA QO

 

URS go ahead and keep the Sabbath. What you don't realise the Sabbath is part of 613 commandments in the OT. If you're going to keep one you'll have to keep the rest, that's the reason the apostle James said if you break one commandment you break all of it (James 2:10). All the commandment are linked to each other and they cannot be broken-up into different categories (John 10:35). In other words you cannot pick and choose which commandments to obey and which ones not to.

 

By your own confession you've stated that you're not part of the church of the Lord Jesus Christ. Further more you've judged it to be a "lukewarm church".

 

Why are you now showing interest in the "body of Christ" after making such comments?

 

Are you sure you know what you're doing?

 

 

 

Io Talatala Bose.Au kila vinaka sara tiko ga na ka au cakava tiko.
Both what I'm doing and where I am based.
I'm a follower of Jesus. The apostle Paul said the same thing.

"And He(Jesus) came to Nazareth, where He had been brought up:and AS HIS CUSTOM WAS(observe God's Sabbath), He went into the synagogue on the SABBATH DAY..." Luke 4:16.
Jesus was later killed in 31 AD.
Now roughly about 49 AD(18 years after Jesus was raised from the dead)we found out that the apostle Paul was also still observing the Sabbath.
"And Paul,AS HIS MANNER WAS (observing the Sabbath),went in unto them and three Sabbath days reasoned with them out of the scriptures." Acts 17:2.
So much for the abolishment of the Sabbath being attributed to Paul.
The Bible is the inspired Word of God.And God is not the author of confusion.
Paul said in 1 Corinthians, "Be ye followers of me as I am also of Christ."

What is the use of quoting out of Paul's words when we cannot do as Paul did apart from taking it out of context?

Apostle Paul never kept the Sabbath, certainly not 84 times!

 

 

False Argument #1:

"Sunday keepers say that the Sabbath was abolished when it was nailed to the cross. Here the Apostle Paul keeping the Sabbath "according to the commandment" after Christ died!" (Additional Sabbatarian proof texts that Paul kept the Sabbath as part of his Christian duty at least 84 times: Acts 13:14, 44 16:13; 17:2; Acts 18:4, 11.)

 

Claimed number of Sabbaths Paul "kept"

 

Acts 13:14 "on the Sabbath day they went into the synagogue and sat down" = 1

 

Acts 13:44 "And the next Sabbath nearly the whole city assembled to hear the word of God." = 1

 

Acts 16:13 "And on the Sabbath day we went outside the gate to a riverside, where we were supposing that there would be a place of prayer; and we sat down and began speaking to the women who had assembled." = 1

 

Acts 17:2 "And Paul, as his manner was, went in unto them, and three Sabbath days reasoned with them out of the scriptures." = 3

 

Acts 18:4, 11 "And he reasoned in the synagogue every Sabbath.”... "And he continued there a year and six months, teaching the word of God among them." = 78

Grand total of Sabbaths = 84 Sabbaths

 

Proof Apostle Paul did not keep the Sabbath these 84 times:

 

A. The Bible nowhere says that Paul or ANY Christian kept the Sabbath according to the commandment after the resurrection.

 

What we do have are frequent examples of Paul preaching to non-Christian Jews in THEIR synagogue on THEIR Sabbath day, that they are lost without Jesus! Should this surprise us? Do Sabbatarians Pastors "keep Sunday" if they preach in a Christian church on the first day of the week?

 

B. These passages speak of Paul preaching to the non-Christian Jews in their synagogues.

 

None of these passages, or any other in the New Testament, ever speak of Christians worshipping on the Sabbath day.

If Paul preaching to Jews on the Sabbath day proves he kept the Sabbath, then it also proves Paul kept synagogue worship as well!

 

C. If Paul "kept the Sabbath" because he preached Christ to non-Christian Jews on THEIR Sabbath day in THEIR synagogue:

  1. then Paul also kept all the other ceremonial laws that the non-Christian Jews practiced while he was there as well.

  2. then a Seventh-day Adventist pastor "keeps Monday" just because he preaches to Muslims in their Mosque on Monday that they are lost without Christ!

  3. then a Seventh-day Adventist pastor "keeps Sunday" just because he preaches to a church of "Sunday keeping" Christians on "Sunday" that they are breaking the Sabbath law!

  4. What proves too much proves nothing at all!

 

D. When Paul removed himself from the Synagogue in Acts 19:8-10 did he then remove himself from Sabbath worship?

 

False Argument #2:

"The fact that the Bible mentions Paul preaching on the Sabbath proves we must keep it"

 

False Argument #2 Refuted:

 

  1. Just because the very first preaching of the Gospel occurred on the day of Pentecost, does not mean Christian must keep Pentecost! Acts 2:1-38

  2. Paul also rushed to get back to Jerusalem on Pentecost: Acts 20:16

  3. Pentecost always fell on a Sunday

  4. Does this mean he was keeping Pentecost feast?

  5. No! It provided him a great opportunity to teach.

  6. Nowhere after the resurrection "keeping the Sabbath according to the commandment"

 

False Argument #3:

"In Acts 18:4, Paul's custom was to worship on the Sabbath with Greeks. This proves it was not a Jewish worship service but a Christ centered worship service separate from the Jewish synagogue worship. The Greeks were uncircumcised and did not keep the Sabbath or the Law of Moses.

 

False Argument #3 Refuted:

  1. Notice the word "persuade". Paul's work here was 100% evangelism. There is no example of Paul ever meeting on the Sabbath day for worship.

  2. Notice also that these were "unbelievers" in Christ before Paul preached to them. Yes they believed in the Jewish system, but the Bible says in Acts 14:1, that they BECAME believers proving Paul's work there was evangelism not worship.

  3. The Greeks were Jewish converts to Judaism known as proselytes. They were not pagan Greeks but Greeks who practiced the law of Moses and kept the Sabbath. Just as if he was a native Hebrew. The only Greeks that were in the synagogue would be these proselytes. These Greeks were certainly were not Christians.

Acts 13:43 "Now when the meeting of the synagogue had broken up, many of the Jews and of the God-fearing proselytes followed Paul and Barnabas, who, speaking to them, were urging them to continue in the grace of God."

Acts 14:1 "In Iconium they entered the synagogue of the Jews together, and spoke in such a manner that a large number of people believed, both of Jews and of Greeks."

Acts 17:4 "And some of them were persuaded and joined Paul and Silas, along with a large number of the God-fearing Greeks and a number of the leading women.

Acts 18:4 "And he was reasoning in the synagogue every Sabbath and trying to persuade Jews and Greeks."

 

False Argument #4:

"Paul kept "the Law", therefore the Sabbath is still binding!" (Additional Sabbatarian proof texts: Acts 21:20-28; Acts 24:14; Acts 26:22; Rom 3:31)

 

False Argument #4 Refuted:

 

A. Look closely at what Paul said:

 

Acts 21:20-28 "And when they heard it they began glorifying God; and they said to him, "You see, brother, how many thousands there are among the Jews of those who have believed, and they are all zealous for the Law; and they have been told about you, that you are teaching all the Jews who are among the Gentiles to forsake Moses, telling them not to circumcise their children nor to walk according to the customs.” What, then, is to be done? They will certainly hear that you have come. "Therefore do this that we tell you. We have four men who are under a vow; take them and purify yourself along with them, and pay their expenses in order that they may shave their heads; and all will know that there is nothing to the things which they have been told about you, but that you yourself also walk orderly, keeping the Law.

  1. Acts 21:20-28: forsake Moses & circumcise = keeping the Law

  2. If Sabbatarians are right, then they better start also practicing circumcision

  3. What proves too much proves nothing at all!

 

B. Paul understood that Moses had prophesied Jesus coming. To "give heed to Jesus" is to KEEP THE LAW of MOSES! Think of it as the law of Moses' own self-destruct mechanism. Moses told the Jews to keep his law UNTIL Jesus came. Then they were to ignore the Law of Moses and listen only to Jesus. In that way, a Christian who exclusively obey Jesus could be said to be keeping the Law of Moses. This is what Paul means by the following verses:

 

  • Acts 3:22 "Moses said, 'The Lord God shall raise up for you a prophet like me from your brethren; to Him you shall give heed in everything He says to you. 'And it shall be that every soul that does not heed that prophet shall be utterly destroyed from among the people.

  • Acts 24:14 "But this I admit to you, that according to the Way which they call a sect I do serve the God of our fathers, believing everything that is in accordance with the Law, and that is written in the Prophets; having a hope in God

  • Rom 3:31 "Do we then nullify the Law through faith? May it never be! On the contrary, we establish the Law"

  • Acts 26:22 "And so, having obtained help from God, I stand to this day testifying both to small and great, stating nothing but what the Prophets and Moses said was going to take place; that the Christ was to suffer, and that by reason of His resurrection from the dead He should be the first to proclaim light both to the Jewish people

When Paul says that he "kept the Law", he was referring to the fact that Moses and the prophets foretold of Christ. And that being a Christian was foretold in the law. In a very real sense it was the Jewish non-Christians who refused to heed Jesus who were in fact REJECTING WHAT MOSES SAID!
