In our previous post, we wrote on the law of Niddah and some other relevant commandments. We have learned how uncleanness brought about by normal physiological functions or illness can cause separation. This compelled us to question the spiritual implications of this. We know there is a physical and a spiritual side to everything.

He already had a covenant with their forefathers. The Sabbath is to serve as the reminder of this covenant. Why would YHVH specifically choose the Sabbath as the sign?
