Spoke 12 - Lamed

2 Kings, Nahum, Titus

Teach and Exhort!

Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers. For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision: Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre's sake.

Titus 1:9ff (Spoke 12, Cycle 3)

Lamed KeyWordsTeach! Exhort! Rebuke! These are the Lamed commands given through Paul to Pastor Titus and now supernaturally integrated with the Hebrew alphabet through the geometric structure of Scripture. The three books addressed to Timothy and Titus form a little group unto themselves traditionally known as the Pastoral Epistles because they were sent to guide these two pastors in the care of their flocks. Teaching, exhortation, and even commands to sharply rebuke (with the prick of the pastor's ox-goad) those who would deviate from the true faith are strong themes in all three of these books, but Titus stands tall over all other books of the Bible in this respect. The graph below shows the raw distribution of the words of the words "teach*" or "taught" on the KJV Wheel:

There is a fairly strong correlation between Cycles 1 and 2 which have a cc of .39. The contributions from the synoptic Gospels in the NT History are almost identical, being 15, 17, and 17 hits, respectively. They combine with significant contributions from the Wisdom literure to reveal this part of the Wheel rich with the theme of teaching. This is what one would expect from both the Wisdom literature and the New Testament History with its emphasis on the words of the Master Teacher Jesus.

The vast difference in the size of the books of the Bible - e.g. the 2461 verses of the Psalms relative to the 46 verses of Titus, more than a fiftyfold difference - makes the raw distribution graphs insensative to the fine structure involving the smaller books. To detect these more subtle details, we need to weight the data according to the size of the books. For example, we can divide the number of hits by the number of verses in the book to give the density of the distribution, as in the graph below:

Now the specific emphasis upon "teaching" in the Pastoral Epistles can be clearly seen. Yet this is but the beginning of wonders. This meaning of Lamed plays an essential role in the integration of the Bible Wheel with World History, which manifests in the Twelfth Century Renaissance of Learning. A linear representation of this data separates the Spokes so the particular emphassis - unique to the Pastoral letters and maximized in Titus is easily seen:

If ever a book exemplified the meaning of a Hebrew letter, it is the little book of Titus. Its small size and extreme thematic clarity allows me demonstrate its divine integration with Lamed without doing anything but going through the book verse by verse and highlighting relevant words like "teach", "exhort", and so forth. The theme is so obvious any further explanation would detract from the demonstration.
