GENESIS 8:4 Then the ark rested in the seventh month, the seventeenth day of the month, on the mountains of Ararat. For 40 days and nights, it rained so hard that the whole world perished, except for Noah and those who were with him in the ark. At the end of 150 days, on the 17th day of the seventh month, the ark rested on the mountains of Ararat. In Hebrew, the word “Ararat” means “the curse is reversed”. The waters of judgment receded, causing the ark to rest on the mountains of Ararat, on new ground where the curse is reversed. And it happened on the 17th day of the seventh month on the Feast of Firstfruits—wasn't that the exact date that Jesus rose from the dead 4,000 years later?

I commend you for your diligent research. Most miss the fact that Jesus was raised on the Feast of Firstfruits, as well as the connection to the flood. Jesus' resurrection is the firstfruit of the dead. While Scripture records the dead being raised, all but Jesus later died and were buried. Whereas Jesus was killed and buried then rose to never ending life.
What was the exact date Jesus rose from the dead? Notice how old Jesus was when he was baptised: Luke 3:21-23: And it came to pass, in all the people being baptised, Jesus also being baptised, and praying, the heaven was opened, and the Holy Spirit came down in a bodily appearance, as if a dove, upon him, and a voice came out of heaven, saying, ‘Thou art My Son — the Beloved, in thee I did delight.’ And Jesus himself was beginning to be about THIRTY YEARS OF AGE, being, as was supposed, son of Joseph, Now let's count back to when he was born.... We know he was born and two years of age when King Herod Died in 4 B.C. Yes 4 B.C. so if we count forward 30 years from 5/6 B.C. we come to 25/26 A.D. Now add 3 1/2 years for his ministry until his death and we come to Passover 28/29 A.D.
This is quite easily answered. He died in the middle of Daniel’s 70th week during Passover festival on Friday. He rose on Sunday morning, the first day of the week, thereafter.
