Christians and the Sabbath

Old Testament accounts of the 1st and 7th days of the week.

In Genesis, the first day of the week is only mentioned 1:5, with no mention of that day being declared holy by God.
Gen 1:5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

However, in Gen 2:3 we see that he did identify one day as being special.
Gen 2:3 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.
Adam and Eve were created on the sixth day, before the Sabbath day.   They were present to observe the day of rest God created.   The Sabbath is not a “Jewish only” law because Adam and Eve were not Hebrews/Israelites/Jews.   Even if one claims that the Law of Moses does not apply to modern Christians, it is important to note that the Sabbath was established many centuries before the Law of Moses.   Throughout the entire Bible (OT and NT) there was only one day that was blessed and sanctified (set aside as holy) by God Himself.   Nowhere in the Bible is the first day of the week (Sunday) mentioned as blessed or sacred.

We are again reminded to observe the seventh day Sabbath in the commandments given at Sinai:
Exodus 20:8-11 Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy…

Why is it that Christian’s don’t question the validity of any of the other 9 commandments God gave to His people, but are quick to dismiss the Sabbath???

Exodus 31:13-17
"But as for you, speak to the sons of Israel, saying, 'You shall surely observe My sabbaths; for this is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, that you may know that I am the LORD who sanctifies you.
'Therefore you are to observe the sabbath, for it is holy to you. Everyone who profanes it shall surely be put to death; for whoever does any work on it, that person shall be cut off from among his people.
For six days work may be done, but on the seventh day there is a...
