John 16 Scattered Sheep
Now are we sure that thou knowest all things, and needest not that
any man should ask thee: by this we believe that thou camest forth from God.
Jesus answered them, Do ye now believe? Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall
be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because
the Father is with me.
Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man that is
my fellow, saith the LORD of hosts: smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be
scattered: and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones.
Spoke 16, Cycle 2
The "scattering" that Christ speaks of here is that which was prophecied in the Book Zechariah on Spoke 16,
Cycle 2. These verses are linked with a KeyLink based on the set
(man, "shall be scattered") [Verify] . Using modnotation to write 38 = 162
(Spoke 16, Cycle 2) we arrive at this representation of the KeyLink:
|KeyLink: The Sheep shall be scatterd|
|PJohn( 16 ) PBible( 162 )|
This cohere's with the theme of the Great Shepherd that dominates Spoke 16.
The theme of Scattering unites Nehemiah, Zechariah, and 1 Peter, which lie at the center of this
triplet of triplets:
|Epistles to the Scattered:
|Post-Exilic Minor Prophets:
|Post-Exilic OT History:
This also integrates with the Psalms (cf. Psalm 60) and is discussed in
A Great Cloud of Witnesses and
Symmetries of the Bible Wheel.
