A conclusion of my views on the 50-Day and 7-Sabbaths Count of the Omer in the New Covenant narrative from Acts 20:6-12. Specifically, I will address details on the following points:
1) Acts 20:7. “Paul, ready to depart the next day, spoke to them and continued his message until midnight.” In biblical Hebraic thought, we learn that midnight means an hour of judgment, salvation, and resurrection. The midnight definition is also the middle second watch of three watches of the night; that is, about 10:00 pm – 2:00 am (towards 3:00 am).
2) Acts 20:9 “…as Paul continued speaking, he (Eutychus) fell down from the third story [loft] and was taken up dead.” The biblical Last Day resurrection model in Ephesians 5:13-14: “But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the Light, for whatever makes manifest is Light. Therefore, He says: ‘Awake, you who sleep, arise from the dead and Messiah will give you Light.‘“
3) Matthew 28:1. “Now, after the Sabbath, as the first day of the week began to dawn, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to see the tomb.” Unpacking the Greek grammar to help us to accurately understand Yeshua’s Third Day resurrection. Also, helping to understand the biblical sunrise-to-sunrise day instead of the traditional Rabbinic sunset to sunset paradigm.
