34. A question for Sabbath-keeping churches: Why is missing the Sabbath from Acts 15?

A question for Sabbath-keeping churches: Why is missing the Sabbath from Acts 15?

I wonder and ask this churches why is not a command for a Sabbath day in the New Testament's Acts chapter 15, if the Sabbath is so important? Why in the first council of Jerusalem, the leaders of the believers don't said that the Sabbath must be held (kept) by the foreigners (pagans) who comes to the faith?

Acts 15, Aramaic Bible in Plain English
1But men had come down from Judea and were teaching the brethren: "If you are not circumcised in the custom of The Law, you cannot have life." 2There was great tumult and debate with them for Paulus and BarNaba, and it happened that Paulus and BarNaba and another with them would go up to the Apostles and the Elders who were in Jerusalem because of this dispute. 3And the church accompanied and sent them and they were traveling in all Phoenicia and also among the Samaritans, as they were recounting the conversion of the Gentiles, and they were creating great joy to all the brethren. 4And when they came to Jerusalem, they were received by the church and by the Apostles and by the Elders and they recounted to them everything that God had done with them.
5But some of the school of The Pharisees who had believed stood up, and they were saying, "It is necessary for you to circumcise them and to command them to keep The Law of Moses."
6But the Apostles and the Elders assembled to look into this matter. 7And as there was a great dispute, Shimeon arose and he said to them, "Men, brothers, you are aware that from the first days God chose the Gentiles to hear the word of The Gospel from my mouth and to believe." 8"And God, who knows what is in the hearts, testified to them and gave them The Spirit of Holiness as to us." 9"And he made no distinction between us and them, because he purified their hearts by faith." 10"And now, why are you tempting God, so as to put a yoke on the necks of the disciples, which not even our fathers nor we were able to bear?" 11But by the grace of Our Lord Yeshua The Messiah, we believe in order to receive life, as they do".

12And all the crowds were silent, and they were listening to Paulus and to BarNaba, who related everything whatever God had done by their hands -- signs and mighty deeds among the Gentiles.

13And after they had ceased, Yaqob arose and he said, "Men, brothers, hear me." 14"Shimeon has related to you how God began to choose from the Gentiles a people for his name." 15"And the words of The Prophets agree with this, just as that which is written:

16'After these things I shall return and I shall raise the tabernacle of David, which had fallen. And I shall build that which had fallen from it and I shall raise it up,

17So that the rest of the children of men may seek THE LORD JEHOVAH, and all the nations upon which my name is called, says THE LORD JEHOVAH, who does all of these things.'

18Known from eternity are the works of God." 19"Therefore I say, let us not trouble those who are being turned to God from the Gentiles." 20"But let it be sent to them that they separate from the defilement of sacrifices and from fornication and from what is strangled and from blood." 21"For from the first ages there have been preachers for Moses who read him on every Sabbath in every town* in the synagogues." *

22Then the Apostles and the Elders, with the whole church, chose men from among them and they sent Yehuda, who is called Bar-Shaba, and Shila, to Antiakia with Paulus and BarNaba, men who were Leaders among the brethren." 23And they wrote an epistle by their hands thus: "The Apostles and Elders and the brethren, to those who are in Antiakia and in Syria and in Qiliqia, brethren who are of the Gentiles, peace." 24"We hear that men among us went out and have alarmed you with words and have subverted your souls, as they were saying, 'Be circumcised and keep The Law', which we have not commanded them." 25"Therefore we counseled when we all assembled and we chose men and sent them to you with our beloved friends, Paulus and BarNaba," 26"Men who have surrendered themselves for the name of Our Lord Yeshua The Messiah." 27"And we sent Yehuda with them and Shila, for they shall tell you the same things by speech." 28"For it was the will of The Spirit of Holiness and also of us that we would not put upon you a burden greater than those things which are necessary:" 29"Abstain from what is sacrificed, from blood, from what is strangled, and from fornication, for when you keep yourselves from these things, you will be well. Be faithful in Our Lord."

30But those who were sent came to Antiakia, and they gathered all the people and gave them the letter. 31And when they read it, they rejoiced and were comforted.
