Matthew 28:1

Young’s literal translation of Matthew 28:1 is:

“And on the eve of the sabbaths, at the dawn, toward the first of the sabbaths, came Mary the Magdalene, and the other Mary, to see the sepulchre,”.  

Most other translations render this the ‘first of the week’.  Isn’t that interesting?  Young’s is right.  Jesus arose on a Saturday, not Sunday! It should be the first Sabbath in the count of seven regular weekly Sabbaths to Pentecost.  Isn’t that interesting??  Is this showing that the resurrection of both first and second born will be completed before dawn of the Millennial Sabbath?  The first 500 years of the Millennium are ‘evening’ and dark.  It is also interesting that 1 Kings 6:1 says that it was 480 years from the Exodus to the beginning of construction of Solomon’s temple.  20 years were required to complete the temple and Solomon’s palace.  That’s 500 years.
