I am called to, "Teach the Word of the Lord; sing it to the nations loud and clear."
I enjoy inductive Bible study!
I study to show myself approved unto God.
I am intent upon what Scripture says, what it means and, what difference it makes.
I do not need to be right; but, I do need to discover what is right; thus, I welcome honest interaction/feedback.

comment “the first day of the week” in 1 Corinthians 16:2
Bullingers comment on Mark 16:1&2 indicates this "first day" came after the weekly Sabbath had passed, thus, not a Sabbath. Commenting on John 20:1 he translates the phrase as "the first (day) of the Sabbaths (pl)" equating it with the passages in Mark 16:2 & Luke 24:1. He explains, "Lev. 28:15-17 shows that this "first day" is the first of the days for reckoning the seven Sabbaths to Pentecost." This would be the first day of 50 days in counting 7 Sabbaths. He continues, "On this day, therefore the Lord became the firstfurits (v 10,11) of Gods' resurrection harvest (I Cor. 15:23)."

comment “the first day of the week” in 1 Corinthians 16:2
The interview deals with the implications of dispensationalsism and when Bullinger said "That scraps half the books I have written," it was in regard to how Bullinger divided the epistles. It had no bearing on his views of "the first day of the Sabbaths."

comment In Heb 6:4-6, what have those once enlightened “fallen away” from?
+1 I like your transparency here. I still suggest you separate your understanding as an answer and leave your last sentence in your question. The reason is that it leaves the question as simply asking for careful exegesis of the text rather than seeming to poise for a debate. Yet still is upfront that you have formulated your own answer and are open to looking at other well supported perspectives. Also, leave it more open for any perspective even if same as yours. Perhaps someone will bring in other support than you.

Can you edit this to include support for your assertions with citations/links/references to credible sources. Here are the core things you will want to know to strengthen your posts: BH-SE, answers must 1)show their work (logical steps), 2)support any assertions, and 3)stop short of application (this forum deals with what the text means, not how it applies). BH-SE Questions must 1)begin with a specific text (not doctrine), and 2)must demonstrate that you have done some research on it yourself.
