Why do Christians celebrate the Sabbath on Sunday rather than Saturday?

Hi Craig, my question is why have churches changed the Sabbath from Saturday to Sunday, when God rested on the seventh day (Saturday) in Genesis and throughout the Old and New Testaments and told us to keep the Sabbath day holy? Thank you

Although this is a bit off topic I thinkThe Lord of the Sabbath himself conquered death on a Sunday—making that day holy in our remembrance. And hence his closest followers began celebrating that feat on that day week by week. I recommend a book by Justo Gonzalez titled “A Brief History of Sunday” (Eerdmans, 2017).
