The 33/66 Pattern
Leviticus contains 'the law for her that hath born a male or a female' – precept for being 'born again'?
"And she shall then continue in the blood of her purifying three and thirty days; she shall touch no hallowed thing, nor come into the sanctuary, until the days of her purifying be fulfilled". Lev12:4
"But if she births a maid child, then she shall be unclean two weeks, as in her separation, and she shall continue in the blood of her purifying threescore and six days". Lev 12:5
Translation: For a boy it was 33, but for a girl it was 66. We want purifying to go to heaven, and the blood of Jesus is required. "The Jew first, and then the Gentile" is from Romans 1:16 and 2:9,10. The Jews were a schoolmaster to bring us to Christ: Gal 3:24.
'For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope'. Rom15:4
Like 'barren' Rachel and the Old Covenant came first, but were followed by fruitful Leah and the New Covenant.
King David lived about 1,000 B.C., smack in the middle of the Old Covenant, and was the 33rd generation from Adam.
Jesus was the 66th generation, like the number of books in the Bible—THE WORD.
Dux allows: "It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out the matter". Pr25:2
