WEEK

For the Jews, any seven consecutive days ending with the sabbath (Genesis 2:1-3). The sabbath began at sunset Friday and lasted until sunset Saturday. The Christians moved their day of worship to Sunday, the first day of the week. In this way they called attention to the resurrection of their Lord Jesus Christ (Luke 24:1-7). The week is of ancient Semitic origin. It was shared with the ancient world through the Bible and the religious practice of both Jews and Christians. See Calendars; Time.
