Roman Catholic Answer

Because the Sabbath was NOT changed to Sunday. The Sabbath remains on Saturday, the last day of the week. Some of the Sabbath's observances have been changed to Sunday, for instance, a rest from servile labor, and the obligation to offer particular worship to God.

But the change of the day of worship, and the obligations, as to rest and whatnot, are indicated by Jesus through His Church. The Scripture was never intended to be an all inclusive encyclopedia of Christian practice and belief. Even the Scripture clearly indicates that in numerous places. Jesus established His Church, and gave the command to go out and preach. No where he did indicate that they should sit down and write a Bible, the Bible was written as part of their preaching.

So the change, as much as there was, was spelled out by the Church, not the Scripture; and by the very fact that Jesus fulfilled the old covenant and established the new covenant-which is defined and preached by the Church.
