Can you please send me verses in the Bible as much as you can, about the
Sabbath Saturday been change to Sunday? I will appreciate that very much.
thank you and God bless you.

Some verses about Sabbath are:
Matt. 12.2-8 (also in Mark 2.24-28, Luke 6.1-5)
Luke 6.6-11 , 13.10-17 , 14.16
John 5.9-18 , 7.23 , 9.14-16 ,
1 Cor. 11.20 (where is mentioned explicitly the change to Sunday)
Hebrews 4
Apoc. 1.10

Please note also that sunday in Greek is Kyriake, that is: the day of
Kyrios, the day which symbolizes the next life, where all time is united
with the Christ.

In the second century they used also the pagan word sunday (the day of the sun - where sun for Christians meant not the physical sun, but Christ). This use remained in some languages (as in English and German)

In the New Testament there is also for Sunday the expression "the first of Saturdays". In the same time (1st and 2nd centuries) there also started to be used the name Kyriake (day of the Lord - Kyrios), which is the standard Greek name until today.
