The Resurrection of Christ and the Ransom by the Hope of the Resurrection (Leviticus 23:12)

However, what is the biblical text that makes the connection between the resurrection (the redemption by the ransom) and the burnt offering? This is the prescription for the sacrifice of Nisan, 16, the day of Christ’s resurrection: “On the day you have the sheaf waved, you must offer a sound young ram in its first year, as a burnt offering to Jehovah” (Leviticus 23:12).
The total offering of the young ram symbolizes the redemption of mankind through the sacrifice of the sinless human body of Christ, enabling this exchange for everlasting life, through resurrection and survival of the great tribulation. As the apostle Paul wrote, under inspiration, the resurrection of Christ, of Nisan, 16, symbolized by the burnt offering of the ram, is a redemption, an exchange by the resurrection of Christ, and a guarantee of hope of a resurrection (heavenly or earthly): “So it is written: “The first man Adam became a living person.” The last Adam became a life-giving spirit”” (1 Corinthians 15:45). How? By the resurrection of Christ, from Nisan,16, where a ram was offered as burnt offering: “For since death came through a man, resurrection of the dead also comes through a man. For just as in Adam all are dying, so also in the Christ all will be made alive. But each one in his own proper order: Christ the firstfruits, afterward those who belong to the Christ during his presence” (1 Corinthians 15:21–23). All humans will be brought back to life through the resurrection of Christ on Nisan 16, symbolized by the burnt offering of the ram.
The offering of the sheaf waved, of Nisan 16, seems to have the same symbolic meaning of the resurrection of Christ, to whom God, his Father gave him a new spiritual body: “Nevertheless, someone will say: “How are the dead to be raised up? Yes, with what sort of body are they coming?” You unreasonable person! What you sow is not made alive unless first it dies. And as for what you sow, you sow, not the body that will develop, but just a bare grain, whether of wheat or of some other kind of seed; but God gives it a body just as it has pleased him, and gives to each of the seeds its own body”” (1 Corinthians 15:35–38). Thus, the sheaf waved offering is the evocation of this resurrection of the seed which is put in the ground and which “dies”, to born again in the form of an ear of wheat, by a resurrection of the “grain” (previously buried).
