Entering God’s ‘rest’ takes effort because the world never rests; even most church goers never rest. There will always be activities and opportunities for breaking the Sabbath command. Entering into the Creator’s Sabbath ‘rest’ takes purposed action, faith action that expresses itself through obedience.
Head coverings or veils are a Jewish tradition; however, Paul praises the Corinthians for “holding to the traditions” just as he taught them. Even Yeshua taught that all traditions weren’t bad; only the ones that nullified a commandment of God (Mark 7:7). Being immersed in the Jewish culture, Paul would have understood the head covering, veil, from a Jewish perspective, especially within the context of betrothal and marriage. However, Paul’s discourse about this tradition reveals deeper spiritual implications.
