Luke 23:54 is using the word to signify an approaching event (the Sabbath about to begin), whereas Matthew 28:1 is using it to signify daybreak. We do this in English as well. The way a word is used is just as important as what the word itself is (though I'd say more important). Dawn: noun the first appearance of daylight in the morning: Dawn broke over ...

He is uniquely separate from His creation; thus He is not "hanging out in the clouds". But for those who are in Christ (to whom the scripture is addressed) He is also immanent--with them at all times through His indwelling. In ...
