burial and resurrection of Messiah and at the same time, the niddah period of theBride. These 3 dark days are known as the “dead” phase as there is no solarreflection/light. By adding the connection to the 7
month, a clear tie to thecleansing of the niddah/leprous individual who must present himself on the 3
day (month) to the Priest. Sundown the 3
began the 4
day (Wednesday) – theLuminaries are created (the moon in the dark phase in my opinion) 3 days later onthe 6
day of Creation but the 1
day of the month, Chodesh, which literally meansto be new, to renew, to repair – Adam, the Man shining with Light – is introduced!Adam is the Tool of Renewal – he fails, and the 2
Adam, Yahshua has to come onthe 4
day of the Creation Week (4000
year) He is executed (light extinguished) onthe 4
day of the literal week – Wednesday, at 3pm toward the going down of thesun, 72 hours later on Shabbat He is resurrected. 3 dark days!Another historical fact also lends credence: ancient Hebrew society had ‘menstrualhuts’, dwellings where the women of the camp gathered during the monthly cycle.Curiously, before the advent of artificial lights, the females from a given local wouldall have their cycles at the same approximate time! Ancient cultures used knowledgeof the timing of menstruation in relation to the timing of copulation to makepaternity assessments, so that men could avoid making any investment in geneticallyunrelated offspring. This is essential in a culture in which inheritance is restricted tothe patrilineal lines. It may not mean they could make their wife any less likely tocheat on them while they're fertile, but the premise was that they would know whento impregnate her so that someone else couldn't get there first.
