St. Justin Martyr Described Sunday Worship

The Seventh Day Adventists keep telling us that Sunday worship did not develop until hundreds of years after the Apostles.


St. Justin Martyr (about 100 AD to about 165 AD) is the earliest written source to describe Sunday as the day of Christian worship. Justin Martyr does not advocate Sunday worship, it was already an accepted, an established fact.

"As to the Eucharist, the baptismal Mass and the Sunday Mass are described in [Justin Martyr's] first "Apology" (lxv-lxvii), with a richness of detail unique for that age."

This is from the online New Advent Catholic Encyclopedia under Justin Martyr. See the last heading The Logos, and the paragraph "The Holy Ghost occupies the third place in the Trinity . . ."

You can see lots of references to Sunday worship in the early Church. Gotta love Justin Martyr! Another good one is, if I remember the names right, a letter from Pliny regarding the Christians who gathered on Sundays. If you search "apologetics Pliny Sunday worship" you'll probably turn up something. Even the resurrected Jesus broke the bread (Lk 24:30) on Sunday (Lk 24:1).

Here is an excerpt from the First Apology of Justin Martyr. I have highlighted the sentences where he mentions Sunday but included a longer quote to give the style and flavor.




CHAPTER LXV -- ADMINISTRATION OF THE SACRAMENTS.

But we, after we have thus washed him who has been convinced and has assented to our teaching, bring him to the place where those who are called brethren are assembled, in order that we may offer hearty prayers in common for ourselves and for the baptized [illuminated] person, and for all others in every place, that we may be counted worthy, now that we have learned the truth, by our works also to be found good citizens and keepers of the commandments, so that we may be saved with an everlasting salvation. Having ended the prayers, we salute one another with a kiss. There is then brought to the president of the brethren bread and a cup of wine mixed with water; and he taking them, gives praise and glory to the Father of the universe, through the name of the Son and of the Holy Ghost, and offers thanks at considerable length for our being counted worthy to receive these things at His hands. And when he has concluded the prayers and thanksgivings, all the people present express their assent by saying Amen. This word Amen answers in the Hebrew language to genoito [so be it]. And when the president has given thanks, and all the people have expressed their assent, those who are called by us deacons give to each of those present to partake of the bread and wine mixed with water over which the thanksgiving was pronounced, and to those who are absent they carry away a portion.

CHAPTER LXVI -- OF THE EUCHARIST.

And this food is called among us Eukaristia [the Eucharist], of which no one is allowed to partake but the man who believes that the things which we teach are true, and who has been washed with the washing that is for the remission of sins, and unto regeneration, and who is so living as Christ has enjoined. For not as common bread and common drink do we receive these; but in like manner as Jesus Christ our Saviour, having been made flesh by the Word of God, had both flesh and blood for our salvation, so likewise have we been taught that the food which is blessed by the prayer of His word, and from which our blood and flesh by transmutation are nourished, is the flesh and blood of that Jesus who was made flesh. For the apostles, in the memoirs composed by them, which are called Gospels, have thus delivered unto us what was enjoined upon them; that Jesus took bread, and when He had given thanks, said, "This do ye in remembrance of Me, this is My body;" and that, after the same manner, having taken the cup and given thanks, He said, "This is My blood;" and gave it to them alone. Which the wicked devils have imitated in the mysteries of Mithras, commanding the same thing to be done. For, that bread and a cup of water are placed with certain incantations in the mystic rites of one who is being initiated, you either know or can learn.

CHAPTER LXVII -- WEEKLY WORSHIP OF THE CHRISTIANS.
And we afterwards continually remind each other of these things. And the wealthy among us help the needy; and we always keep together; and for all things wherewith we are supplied, we bless the Maker of all through His Son Jesus Christ, and through the Holy Ghost. And on the day called Sunday, all who live in cities or in the country gather together to one place, and the memoirs of the apostles or the writings of the prophets are read, as long as time permits; then, when the reader has ceased, the president verbally instructs, and exhorts to the imitation of these good things. Then we all rise together and pray, and, as we before said, when our prayer is ended, bread and wine and water are brought, and the president in like manner offers prayers and thanksgivings, according to his ability, and the people assent, saying Amen; and there is a distribution to each, and a participation of that over which thanks have been given, and to those who are absent a portion is sent by the deacons. And they who are well to do, and willing, give what each thinks fit; and what is collected is deposited with the president, who succours the orphans and widows and those who, through sickness or any other cause, are in want, and those who are in bonds and the strangers sojourning among us, and in a word takes care of all who are in need. But Sunday is the day on which we all hold our common assembly, because it is the first day on which God, having wrought a change in the darkness and matter, made the world; and Jesus Christ our Saviour on the same day rose from the dead. For He was crucified on the day before that of Saturn (Saturday); and on the day after that of Saturn, which is the day of the Sun, having appeared to His apostles and disciples, He taught them these things, which we have submitted to you also for your consideration.

At one time, I somewhat sympathized with the Adventist point of view on keeping the Sabbath, but I've since come to understand why it is that most Christians have Sunday as the day of worship. It's all about remembering the Sunday resurrection. It's nice to read the words of historical Christian figures, such as Justin Martyr, which help to validate that this is the way things have been done throughout the ages. I think that's a reason that I'm so fascinated by Church history and love to read about it.

That's interesting. Can you point to anything in particular that persuaded you?

Scholars date the Apology of Justin Martyr, quoted above, to 156 AD. Justin Martyr was not a priest and did not write in any official capacity for the church but simply as a lay member. To me, that makes his account all the more interesting.


"Justin Martyr was a second century Christian apologist. His apology is dedicated to Emperor Antoninus, who ruled from 138-161. His apology may be dated internally from the statement in chapter 6 that "Christ was born one hundred and fifty years ago under Cyrenius." Since Quirinius entered office in the year 6 C.E. according to Josephus, the apology may be dated to the year 156 CE."

Excellent points.

Sunday has been the Lord's Day since the beginning.

St. Ignatius on the sabbath and Sunday worship.

The following is from the Epistle of St. Ignatius to the Magnesians.


Chapter 9. Let us live with Christ

If, therefore, those who were brought up in the ancient order of things have come to the possession of a new hope, no longer observing the Sabbath, but living in the observance of the Lord's Day, on which also our life has sprung up again by Him and by His death— whom some deny, by which mystery we have obtained faith, and therefore endure, that we may be found the disciples of Jesus Christ, our only Master— how shall we be able to live apart from Him, whose disciples the prophets themselves in the Spirit did wait for Him as their Teacher? And therefore He whom they rightly waited for, having come, raised them from the dead. Matthew 27:52

Tertullian is one of the early Church fathers who mentioned Sunday worship in the church of his time. For instance, in a brief piece, The Chaplet, he says:

We rejoice in the same privilege also from Easter to Whitsunday.
--The Chaplet, Chapter 3


In Ad Nationes, To the Nations, Tertullian says:


Others, with greater regard to good manners, it must be confessed, suppose that the sun is the god of the Christians, because it is a well-known fact that we pray towards the east, or because we make Sunday a day of festivity.


A few sentences later:


Wherefore, that I may return from this digression, you who reproach us with the sun and Sunday should consider your proximity to us.



Notice that Tertullian describes Sunday worship as "a well known fact," not as anything controversial or as a recent innovation.


Both of these quotes are from the first paragraph in Chapter 13 of Ad Nationes.

Both works of Tertullian can be found at the link below.

The Chaplet was written about 209 AD and To the Nations about 197 AD. Tertullian was ordained a priest in about 200 AD, so he wrote To the Nations as a layman but The Chaplet as an ordained priest.


"The year 197 saw the publication of a short address by Tertullian, "To the Martyrs", and of his great apologetic works, the "Ad nationes" and the "Apologeticus"."
