FIVE if you’ll recall carries a two fold meaning, "death & grace" and THREE is the number of divine perfection, The Trinity and also the Resurrection as well.

Fifteen being 8 + 7 {"7" completion- "8" new beginning} as well as 3 x 5, pointing {3} DIVINE {5} GRACE as at the RESSURRECTION {3} we will receive NEW {8} bodies.

Three times in the year Israel RESTED on the FIFTEENTH day of the month.

The Passover was the first festival and began on the evening of the fourteenth day (which Israel counted as the beginning of the fifteenth) of Nisan the first month of the Jewish year.

The Passover commemorated Israel’s deliverance {14th day} from the slavery of Egypt, and as such it prefigured deliverance by Christ from the bondage of sin.

Just as the Passover celebrated God’s great redemptive act of the O.T., the Lord’s Supper celebrates God’s great redemptive act of the N.T.

The third time the people rested is found in the book of Esther.

The rest came through Boaz their kinsman redeemer that we read about in chapter 4:

Boaz, was of the tribe of Judah like Jesus, Boaz bought all that Naomi possessed including Ruth, Naomi a type of Israel, Ruth a type of the gentile church as she was a Moabite, a gentile. Boaz is a picture and type of the Lord Jesus Christ who said in;
