comment Why did the council of Laodicea condemn “Judaizing” Sabbath rest?
@Hello, then you agree with me that "Sabbath" refers exclusively to the Hebrew Sabbath - Friday sundown to Saturday sundown. Regarding the "Lord's Day", it was never used prior to Christ's resurrection. And since the Resurrection occurred on Sunday, it is not unreasonable to conclude that this new terminology refers to this "eighth day of creation", distinct from the Hebrew day of worship. Which happens to agree with the testimony of the earliest Christians, who are quite clear about observing the Lord's Day in lieu of the Sabbath.

Wiki articles are usually reliable, especially when sourced with references, and the one on Judaizers is no exception.

comment What evidence exists for post-Biblical miracles?
@user, from the the Wiki article Our Lady of Fatima: "Columnist Avelino de Almeida of O Século (Portugal's most influential newspaper, which was pro-government in policy and avowedly anti-clerical),[2] reported the following: "Before the astonished eyes of the crowd, whose aspect was biblical as they stood bare-headed, eagerly searching the sky, the sun trembled, made sudden incredible movements outside all cosmic laws - the sun 'danced' according to the typical expression of the people."

@user unknown, the predictions of a public manifestation of Mary by the three children of Fatima were well publicized. Many newspaper reporters and skeptics were there. Look up Miracle of the Sun on Wiki.
