The Sabbath, to Preserve the Good Life : A Religious Historical Study of the Hebrew Bible Texts in Search of the Rule´s Origin, Purpose and Application (English)
Abstract [sv]

Uppsatsen undersöker ursprungssyftet bakom sabbatsbudet samt utvecklingen i dess tillämpning. Fem bibeltexter har valts ut ur ett religionshistoriskt perspektiv från olika perioder av den Hebreiska Bibelns tillkomsthistoria. Särskilt studeras den yttre påverkan det omgivande samhället bidragit med. Bibeltexterna som analyseras är: Exodus 20:8-11, Genesis 2:2-3, Jesaja 58:13-14, 1 Mackabeerboken 2:41 samt Psalm 92 ur Psaltaren.

Sabbatsbudet ursprung är oklart. Det framstår unikt för judarnas identitet som folk. Syftet har alltid varit att främja liv. Under exiltiden blev detta viktigare. Behovet av att vila, tillbe och fröjdas i kontrast till livets slit är dess utvecklade essens. Yttre hot mot judendomens existens har stundtals lett till fanatism. Till och med martyrdöd. Varpå tillämpningen lättats upp något.

Abstract [en]

This paper explores the original purpose of the sabbatical commandment as well as the development of its practical application. Five passages from the Bible have been selected from a religious historical perspective from different periods of the Hebrew Bible creation. Particular attention will be given to the external influence of the surrounding community. The Bible passages to be analyzed are: Exodus 20:8-11, Genesis 2:2-3, Isaiah 58:13-14, 1 Maccabees 2:41 and Psalm 92 from Psalms.

The origin of the sabbatical commandment is unclear. It appears to be unique for the Jewish identity as a people. Its purpose was always to promote life. During the time of exile, this became increasingly important. It is the embodiment of the need for resting, praying and rejoicing in contrast to life's struggles. External threats to the existance of Judaism have occasionally led to fanaticism. Even martyrdom. After which its application has become somewhat more relaxed.
