Flood ends where the next day is the first day on the new earth
and it is the same day as Christ's Resurrection, Feast Of First Fruits
17th of Nisan
The Ark rested on the 17th day of the 7th month. In Genesis 8:4 "And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat." This month becomes the first month replacing Tishri. The flood is over The next day is the 18th of Nisan which is when Noah exits the Ark and it is also the same day of Jesus Christ's Resurrection.
The question is what is the seventh month on the Jewish Calendar. See calendar chart below. It is the month of Nisan.
Nisan is the month of miracles as indicated from the names which stems from the Hebrew word for miracles. In the Hebrew the word implies "miracles of miracles". In some sources there information to indicate it was meant that future miracles would be ever greater than those of the Exodus.
In Exodus 12:1-2 "Now the LORD said to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, 'This month shall be the beginning of months for you; it is to be the first month of the year to you.' ", the calendar was changed. God was speaking to Moses and Aaron regarding the Passover. In Exodus 12:5-6 "Your lamb shall be an unblemished male a year old; you may take it from the sheep or from the goats. You shall keep it until the fourteenth day of the same month, then the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel is to kill it at twilight."
The First and older Calendar
The month of Tishrei is the month that "Adam and Eve were created" and was the first month prior to Exodus 12:1-2.
Creation of the Universe by God occurred on the 25th of Elul according to the Midrash notes. This occurred when God created the Divine Light by saying "Let there be light" in Genesis 1:3.
Hebrew Sages reasoning by Gematria for word Yehi, "let there be", is 25 and that man was created on Rosh Hahanah, then the actual first work of the creation began on Elul 25
The Mishnah (Sanhedrin 38b) has Adam and Eve created six after Rosh Hashanah which would then be Tishri 1.
The reason why the sages believe Adam was created on Tishri 1 is because of the transposing the Hebrew letter of the first word of the Hebrew scripture. "In the beginning" = bershit and "on the 1st of Tisri" = aleph b'Trishri. This is the 6th day.
