    I do think it is about 7 x 7 = 49 (lights), forming a square, the one in the middle of them being the 50th,
    and to seven being the eighth.
    and that that's why it is written to seven churches, and not to four or five or six, or nine.

    Eight is Hebrew "sh'monah", clearly related to "shemen", oil, the essence of the light (of the candlestick) and also main substance of the anointment.

    Which is also the story of Chanukkah:

    The story goes that there was only enough oil to burn for one day, yet it burned for eight days, the time needed to prepare a fresh supply of oil for the menorah
