Revelation 1:9-10 "I, John, who also am your brother, and fellow-partner in the tribulation, and in the reign and endurance, of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, because of the word of God, and because of the testimony of Jesus Christ; I was in the Spirit on the Lord's-day, and I heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, saying,"

To what was John referring when he said he was "in the Spirit on the Lord's day?" Did he mean to reference the common expression in the scriptures of "the day of the Lord," or did he mean to reference the first day of the week commonly taken to be Sunday?
