Where in the Bible does it say that Saturday is the Sabbath?

Where in the Bible does it say that Saturday is the Sabbath? 

I’m presuming that this question is about the days of the week. 

The Bible does not contain the days of the week as we have them on our calendars.  The days of the week were named by the Greeks and Romans, after their gods and planets.  As you know, the Bible uses numbers, such as first day, second day, etc.   When the Bible refers to the 7th day of the week, most chronology scientists agree that our modern day calendar is accurate with ancient calendars, in that no changes have occurred in history with the days of the weekly calendar.

There were instances in history where certain societies tried to change the week to 10 days, such as right after the French Revolution.  But these attempts to change the seven day creation week that God instituted at Creation were futile. 

So to answer your question, the word “Saturday” is not in the Bible.  Saturday is a name derived from the Roman god, Saturn.  God’s Sabbath day is the 7th day of the week, and you can find that throughout the Bible!,
