For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also
which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
1 Thessalonians 4.14
Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto
life, and few there be that find it.
Then answered the Jews and said unto him, What sign shewest thou unto us,
seeing that thou doest these things? Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and
in three days I will raise it up.
This is one of the amazing identities that integrates with the ancient Christian Tradition.
Although the Bible does
not specify the exact age of Jesus when He began His ministry, saying only that He was "about 30 years old,"
the most common tradition has been that He was 33 years old when He died. Death is profoundly
integrated with the
Number 4, the first Square Number (cf. Dead Four Days
and Dalet Alphabetic Verses).
It is therefore a wonder to behold the phrase "Jesus died" to be the
square of 33, the age tradition says He died!
= 1089 = 33 x 33
Note also the the Wheel (Galgal = 66) which
eternally revolves around the Cross at Golgotha (cf. The Axis of the Wheel)
is derived in a similar way from the Number 33, i.e. 1089 = 33 x 33 and 66 = 33 + 33.
The wonder continues as we note that He spoke of His Death when He said "destroy this temple, and I will
raise it up in three days."
All of this integrates with the Narrow Gate which is nothing less than the teaching that we must suffer and
die with Christ if we are to share in His Glory and His Resurrection:
Strait is the Gate
Stene heh pule
= 1089 = 33 x 33
The word translated as strait means narrow or constricted. It is almost a
direct transliteration of the Hebrew
Tserut (of the same meaning) from the root Tsarar (S# H6887,
cf. Perfect Peace). Thus "stene heh pule" means
"The Narrow Gate."
