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 Does Peter suggest Jesus “descended into hell”?
I agree that Passover is the High Sabbath in the Gospel. I just do not know that the count commences the day after the Sabbath of Passover.

comment Does Peter suggest Jesus “descended into hell”?
I understand. But I think that at the writing of Lev 26, Passover was not yet known as a day of rest. (Presuming Numbers 28:18 & Deuteronomy 16:5 which contain the instruction to not work on Passover, post date the writing of Leviticus). Moreover, if I recall correctly, though they were to not work it was not actually called a Sabbath? It seems the only Sabbath they would have known of when YHWH said to commence the counting the day after the Sabbath, would be the weekly Sabbath. Sequentially, when the sickle was put to the grain, would fall after Passover.

OK, should I award Jack the bounty? Blessings to you in your pastorate.

comment Does Peter suggest Jesus “descended into hell”?
It may be as you say; there is considerable connecting the dots no matter which way one looks at it. However, consider this: Contextually, the only Sabbath yet spoken of at the writing of Lev 26: 15-16, was the weekly Sabbath. Thus, it seems that would be the Sabbath they would think Him to mean. Though He did speak of Passover just prior to the instruction about when to commence the count, He did not yet instruct them to rest on Passover. This seems to suggest that sequentially, Passover would come prior to the day after the weekly Sabbath when the sickle is put to the grain.

comment Why is the genealogy in Luke attributed to Mary?
Quite in keeping with your concern, the article I linked to suggests that the lineage in Matthew is of Mary, Jesus Biological mother, (rather than that of Joseph as has been traditionally thought). The Aramaic word is "man" and Mr. Younan demonstrates that this can mean "husband" or "father." He explains that in order for there to be 14 generations this has to be understood as father, not husband. Thus the lineage of Matthew is more logically of Mary. The account in Matthew does then trace Jesus biological lineage through the line of David and of Solomon through Mary his mother.

comment Does Peter suggest Jesus “descended into hell”?
Joseph, There is much discussion as to what day the counting to Pentecost begins. In observing Scripture, the Torah never says that the counting of the 50 days begins the day after Passover. While the description of it comes after the description of Passover, the Torah only says it begins the day after the Sabbath when the sickle is put to the grain. For more lengthy look at this see my answer here..

comment Why does the word “void” in Romans 3:31 mean “nullify”?
Amen. Jeremiah 31:31-34, YHWH said He would establish a new covenant with Israel; He would put His law in their minds and write it on their hearts. Thus, the tablet upon which the law was written changed (stone to hearts). Isaiah 42 indicates that Jesus is given as a covenant to the people. Matthew 26:28 Jesus said the cup was His blood of the new covenant shed for many for the remission of sins. The curse of the law (consequence of sin) is no longer required of believers for Christ has taken that on himself. But the law remains and if we love him we keep His commandments.

I think you responded to this based on my "note" in the question; this is a very well rounded answer addressing the many facets of the matter. Would you be able to include any insight about how this particular piece in Matthew 5:32 then fits into the puzzle--namely what the one who divorces for a reason other than sexual immorality causes for his wife. That still remains at the heart of the question though I do not wish to ignore or isolate it from the rest of the council of God on the matter.
