The 50th Day

50th Day After Yeshua’ Resurrection, Acts 2:1-41

Acts 2:1-41 – 30th May AD32 or 24th May AD33 most likely dates.

The day of Pentecost or Shavuot, the late Spring thanksgiving for the first harvest.

Time frame, Shavuot the 7th day or 50 days or 7 weeks after the resurrection of Yeshua. The first weekly Sabbath after Pentecost was called The Feast of First Fruits. It is a Jewish holiday that occurs on the sixth day of the Hebrew month of Sivan (may fall between 14 May–15 June). Shavuot has a double significance. … The word Shavuot means weeks, and the festival of Shavuot marks the completion of the seven-week counting of the Omer period between Passover and Shavuot.

Also, Leviticus 23:15-22 about the Feast of Weeks or Shavuot and also Leviticus 23:9-14 about the Feast of First Fruits.

A life-changing experience happened: Hashem sent tongues of fire.

Kefa’s first sermon out of many. Now he became the spokesman for the group after he had been filled with the Spirit.

Background Reading:

The Coming of Haruach Hakodesh at Pentecost

2:11 And when the day of Shavuos is fulfilled, they were all together in one place. [Lv 23:15,16] 2 And there was mitamuhl (suddenly) from Shomayim a sound like the rushing of a violent wind, and it filled the whole bais where they were sitting. 3 And leshonot appeared to them, being divided as eish resting on each one of them, 4 And all were filled with the Ruach Hakodesh, and they began to speak in leshonot acherot as the Ruach Hakodesh was giving the utterance to them.

5 Now devout Jews from every nation on earth were living in Jerusalem. 6 When that sound came, a crowd quickly gathered, startled because each one heard the disciples speaking in his own language. 7 Stunned and amazed, they asked, “All of these people who are speaking are Galileans, aren’t they? 8 So how is it that each one of us hears them speaking in his own native language: 9 Parthians, Medes, Elamites, residents of Mesopotamia, Judea, Cappadocia, Pontus, Asia, 10 Phrygia, Pamphylia, Egypt, the district of Libya near Cyrene, Jewish and proselyte visitors from Rome, 11 Cretans, and Arabs, listening to them talk in our own languages about the great deeds of Hashem?”

12 All of them continued to be stunned and puzzled, and they kept asking one another, “What can this mean?”

13 But others kept saying in derision, “They’re drunk on sweet wine!”

Kefa Addresses the Crowd

14 Then Kefa stood up among the eleven apostles and raised his voice to address them:

Men of Judea and everyone living in Jerusalem! You must understand something, so pay close attention to my words. 15 These men are not drunk as you suppose, for it’s only nine o’clock in the morning. 16 Rather, this is what was spoken through the prophet Joel:

17 ‘In the last days, Hashem says,

I will pour out my Spirit on everyone.

Your sons and your daughters will prophesy,

your young men will see visions,

and your old men will dream dreams.

18 In those days I will even pour out my Spirit

on my slaves, men and women alike,

and they will prophesy.

19 I will display wonders in the sky above

and signs on the earth below:

blood, fire, and clouds of smoke.

20 The sun will become dark,

and the moon turn to blood,

before the coming of the great and glorious Day of the Lord.

21 Then whoever calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.’

22 “Fellow Israelis, listen to these words: Yeshua from Nazareth was a man authenticated to you by Hashem through miracles, wonders, and signs that Hashem performed through him among you, as you yourselves know. 23 After he was arrested according to the predetermined plan and foreknowledge of Hashem, you crucified this very man and killed him using the hands of lawless men. 24 But Hashem raised him up and put an end to suffering of death, since it was impossible for him to be held by it, 25 since David says about him,

I always keep my eyes on the Lord,

for he is at my right hand

so that I cannot be shaken.

26 That is why my heart is glad

and my tongue rejoices,

yes, even my body still rests securely in hope.

27 For you will not abandon my soul to Hades

or allow your Holy One to experience decay.

28 You have made the ways of life known to me,

and you will fill me with gladness in your presence.’

29 “Brothers, I can tell you confidently that the patriarch David died and was buried, and that his tomb is among us to this day. 30 Therefore, since he was a prophet and knew that Hashem had promised him with an oath to put one of his descendants on his throne, 31 he looked ahead and spoke about the resurrection of the Messiah:

He was not abandoned to Hades,

and his flesh did not experience decay.’

32 “It was this very Yeshua whom Hashem raised—and we’re all witnesses of that. 33 He has been exalted to the right hand of Hashem, has received from the Father the promised Holy Spirit, and has caused you to experience what you are seeing and hearing. 34 After all, David did not go up to heaven, but he said,

The Lord told my Lord,

Sit at my right hand,

35 until I make your enemies your footstool.”’

36 “Therefore, let all the people of Israel understand beyond a doubt that Hashem made this Yeshua, whom you crucified, both Lord and Messiah!”

37 When the crowd that had gathered heard this, they were pierced to the heart. They asked Kefa and the other apostles, “Brothers, what should we do?”

38 Kefa answered them, “Every one of you must repent and be Tevilah in the name of Yeshua the Messiah for the forgiveness of your sins. Then you will receive the Holy Spirit as a gift. 39 For this promise belongs to you and your children, as well as to all those who are distant, whom the Lord our Hashem may call to himself.”

40 Using many different expressions, Kefa continued to testify and to plead: “Be saved,” he urged them, “from this corrupt generation!” 41 So those who welcomed his message were Tevilah. That day about 3,000 people were added to their number. Acts 2:1–41

The Spring Feasts – Yeshua;s Death and Resurrection (First Coming)

These are the appointed feasts of the Lord, the holy convocations, which you shall proclaim at the time appointed for them. In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at twilight, is the Lord‘s Passover. And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the Feast of Unleavened Bread to the Lord; for seven days you shall eat unleavened bread. On the first day you shall have a holy convocation; you shall not do any ordinary work. But you shall present a food offering to the Lord for seven days. On the seventh day is a holy convocation; you shall not do any ordinary work.”

And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the people of Israel and say to them, When you come into the land that I give you and reap its harvest, you shall bring the sheaf of the first fruits of your harvest to the priest, and he shall wave the sheaf before the Lord, so that you may be accepted.

On the day after the Sabbath the priest shall wave it. And on the day when you wave the sheaf, you shall offer a male lamb a year old without blemish as a burnt offering to the Lord. And the grain offering with it shall be two tenths of an ephah of fine flour mixed with oil, a food offering to the Lord with a pleasing aroma, and the drink offering with it shall be of wine, a fourth of a hin.

And you shall eat neither bread nor grain parched or fresh until this same day, until you have brought the offering of your God: it is a statute forever throughout your generations in all your dwellings.” (Leviticus 23:4-14)

The Spring Feasts – Passover, Unleavened Bread, and First fruits – point to the redemption we have through Yeshua death and resurrection at His first coming. The pilgrimage required of Israelite males for this season is Passover/Unleavened Bread.

Shadow Fulfillment – Passover finds its’ shadow fulfillment in the 10th Plague of Egypt, where the Israelite’s who placed the blood of the lamb on their doorposts were literally passed over by the angel of death.

Fulfillment –  Yeshua HaMashiach fulfilled the feast of Passover through His death on the Tree. Yeshua – the Lamb of G-d who takes away the sins of the world (John 1:29)_ With that said According to Our Sages and Scholars Shavuot is Eternal. Thu, 28 May 2020 at sundown (6th of Sivan, 5780)
