Leviticus 23:1-3 (NIV) says:
The Appointed Festivals
23 The Lord said to Moses, 2 “Speak to the Israelites and say to them: ‘These are my appointed festivals, the appointed festivals of the Lord, which you are to proclaim as sacred assemblies.
3 “‘There are six days when you may work, but the seventh day is a day of sabbath rest, a day of sacred assembly. You are not to do any work; wherever you live, it is a sabbath to the Lord.
The chapter then continues listing other feasts / sacred assemblies:
- The Passover and the Festival of Unleavened Bread (Lev 23:4-8)
- Offering the Firstfruits (Lev 23:9-14)
- The Festival of Weeks (Lev 23:15-22)
- The Festival of Trumpets (Lev 23:23-25)
- The Day of Atonement (Lev 23:26-32)
- The Festival of Tabernacles (Lev 23:33-44)
Similarly, in Numbers 28 and 29 we find a similar list:
- Daily Offerings (Num 28:1-8)
- Sabbath Offerings (Num 28:9-10)
- Monthly Offerings (a.k.a. New Moons) (Num 28:11-15)
- The Passover (Num 28:16-25)
- The Festival of Weeks (Num 28:26-31)
- The Festival of Trumpets (Num 29:1-6)
- The Day of Atonement (Num 29:7-11)
- The Festival of Tabernacles (Num 29:12-40)
Are Leviticus 23, Numbers 28, 29 telling us that the weekly sabbath is just one of many appointed festivals / holy convocations? Doesn't this contradict positions that uphold the weekly Sabbath as "special" and of a higher "status" among the many feasts?
