Passover to Pentecost – At the Start of Counting the Omer Week 3 Day 2
He will bind up our wounds.2 After two days he will revive us; on the third day he will restore us, that we may live in his presence. Hosea 6: 1+2 (NIV)
‘I will keep on driving out demons and healing people today and tomorrow, and on the third day I will reach my goal.’ Luke 13:32 (NIV)
This “second day” in these passages would be Saturday in Passion Week. This day is
tough to get excited about because Jesus was “dead” (See Easter 2015- Saturday) so people really are not sure what to do with it. Jesus was busy, just not in a realm that we can see.
There still are important dates in these fifty days that I will highlight. So we will spend the rest of the time thinking about Jesus’ actions and teachings that lead up to Pentecost, the birthday of the Church.
