Spoke 22

Psalm 22 chain The Psalm of the Cross

My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring? ... For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet.

Psalm 22

The reality of prophecy and of the divine inspiration of Scripture is no where more clearly displayed than here in Psalm 22 where the crucifixion of the Lord Jesus Christ is foretold.

Every theme of the Bible is united here in this sacred passage which God indexed so carefully, and so obviously, with the Number 22, the Number of Tav, the final letter of the divine alphabet, the letter of the Cross.

Every aspect of Christ's sufferings is seen in this Psalm, and His separation from the Father when He bore our sins is heard in the cry, "My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" He, the King of Glory, willingly became "a worm", "a reproach of men, and despised of the people" so that we who were lost might find grace and forgiveness through His sacrifice. This is what the Bible is all about. It is the axis of the Wheel.

In Johns description of the Cross, we read (John 19:30):

After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst. Now there was set a vessel full of vinegar: and they filled a spunge with vinegar, and put it upon hyssop, and put it to his mouth. When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.

Just as Tav completes the alphabet, so Jesus completes His work upon the cross with the words "It is finished." 

All four gospel relate vinegar with the death of Christ. The receiving of vinegar was the sign that marked the time of the death of Jesus. We have the identity:

Vinegar (, ozos) = 400 = Tav ()
