Spoke 4

Numbers, Ezekiel, Galatians

I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed [anathama]. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed [anathama].

Spoke 4, Cycle 3
(Galatians 1.6f)

Anathema

The Fourth Century marks the beginning of a series of Church Councils that met over a period of four hundred years. It was enabled by the legalization of Christianity by Constantine in 312 AD. The first two Ecumentical Councils (considered binding on the whole Church) were held in the Fourth Century in Nicaea This link takes you off the Bible Wheel site and opens a new window [325] and Constantinople This link takes you off the Bible Wheel site and opens a new window [381]. The Council of Nicaea dealt with the Arian Heresy, conlcuding with this statement anathematizing those who would teach a different Christ than that received by the Apostles:

We believe in one God the Father Almighty, Maker of all things visible and invisible; and in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten of the Father, that is, of the substance [ek tes ousias] of the Father, God of God, light of light, true God of true God, begotten not made, of the same substance with the Father [homoousion to patri], through whom all things were made both in heaven and on earth; who for us men and our salvation descended, was incarnate, and was made man, suffered and rose again the third day, ascended into heaven and cometh to judge the living and the dead. And in the Holy Ghost. Those who say: There was a time when He was not, and He was not before He was begotten; and that He was made our of nothing (ex ouk onton); or who maintain that He is of another hypostasis or another substance [than the Father], or that the Son of God is created, or mutable, or subject to change, [them] the catholic Church anathematizes.

This is the first formal anathematization from a Council of God's Church. We have a perfect correlation of the content from the Fourth Spoke (Galatians) with this artifact from the Fourth Century. The concept of anathema also part of a Spoke 4 KeyLink discussed in Dedicated to God. None of this would be evident without knowledge of the bwheel. Yet this is but the beginning of wonders! The Book of Galatians continues with the actual record of the Council of Jerusalem.

The Council of Jerusalem

Then fourteen years after I went up again to Jerusalem with Barnabas, and took Titus with me also. 2 And I went up by revelation, and communicated unto them that gospel which I preach among the Gentiles, but privately to them which were of reputation, lest by any means I should run, or had run, in vain. 3 But neither Titus, who was with me, being a Greek, was compelled to be circumcised: 4 And that because of false brethren unawares brought in, who came in privily to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage: 5 To whom we gave place by subjection, no, not for an hour; that the truth of the gospel might continue with you. 6 But of these who seemed to be somewhat, (whatsoever they were, it maketh no matter to me: God accepteth no man's person:) for they who seemed to be somewhat in conference added nothing to me: 7 But contrariwise, when they saw that the gospel of the uncircumcision was committed unto me, as the gospel of the circumcision was unto Peter; 8 ( For he that wrought effectually in Peter to the apostleship of the circumcision, the same was mighty in me toward the Gentiles:) 9 And when James, Cephas, and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace that was given unto me, they gave to me and Barnabas the right hands of fellowship; that we should go unto the heathen, and they unto the circumcision. 10 Only they would that we should remember the poor; the same which I also was forward to do.

Spoke 4, Cycle 3
(Galatians 2.1f)

Paul Johnson describes the event above in the first paragraph of his History of Christianity This link takes you off the Bible Wheel site and opens a new window (emphasis added):

Some time about the middle of the first century AD, and very likely in the year 49, Paul of Tarsus travelled south from Antioch to Jerusalem and there met the surviving followers of Jesus of Nazareth, who had been crucified about sixteen years before. This Apostolic Conference, or Council of Jerusalem, is the first political act in the history of Christianity and the starting-point from which we can seek to reconstruct the nature of Jesus's teaching and the origins fo the religion and church he brought into being.

The correspondence betweent the content of Galatians and the Fourth Century is perfect and precise.
