Genesis 8:4

By the civil calendar, the only one in use before Exodus 12, the dates given in Genesis 8:4 bring us to Abib 17. What happened on Abib 17 that might be important? Abib 14 is Passover and on it the Lamb of God was slain. Three days and three nights later near sunset of the seventeenth, He was resurrected! Our salvation, our deliverance from this body of death, our eternal safety, was absolutely demonstrated by Christ's resurrection! Likewise, but of far less importance, the ark coming to rest on that day confirmed that the eight in the ark were safe, and the continuance of mankind through Noah and his family was assured.
