Spoke 3

Genesis 3 chain Gimel chain The Fall

And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou? And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.

Genesis 3.9

Genesis 3 introduces the fall of Adam and Eve and the loss of the comfort of God's fellowship. It contains the seeds of all the great themes of Spoke 3. This is seen in the verse above, which contains the Hebrew names of the first two books on Spoke 3:

(V'yiqra, and he called). This is the Hebrew name of Leviticus. It integrates with the great theme of God calling us with the voice of His Spirit that dominates Spoke 3.
(Aikah, Where art thou?). Without the vowel points, this word is identical to the name of Lamentations, Aikah. The root (Ayee) has the various meanings of how, where, and Alas!. It is a pun on the cry of grief - Eeeeaaaah!. Aikah is translated as "How" in the first verse of Lamentations: "How doth the city sit solitary, that was full of people!"

The verse above also introduces the idea of shameful nakedness, which is a major theme of Spoke 3. It is seen in the many prohibitions against various forms of nakedness in Leviticus, which contains the greatest density of this word in all Scripture. This integrates with the Gimel-KeyWord galah, which means uncover, disclose, discover or make naked. Both of these words galah (uncover) and arah (nakedness) occur with great frequency in Leviticus (vs. 18.6f):

None of you shall approach to any that is near of kin to him, to uncover their nakedness: I am the LORD. The nakedness of thy father, or the nakedness of thy mother, shalt thou not uncover: she is thy mother; thou shalt not uncover her nakedness. The nakedness of thy fatherís wife shalt thou not uncover: it is thy fatherís nakedness.

The list goes on and on. Leviticus contains 16 verses that use these words uncover and nakedness, both of which are primary themes emerging from Genesis 3. Note also that God himself made "aprons" to cover their sin.

The correlation of Spoke 3 with "nakedness" can be seen in the distribution of the words "naked" and "nakedness" in the Bible:

The green bar at the top of Spoke 3 corresponds to the references to nakedness found in 2 Corinthians (2 Cor 5.1):

For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven: If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked. For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life.

The cause of the Fall, and its consequence, are both deeply related to food (created on Day 3) and nurishment (symbol of the function of the Holy Spirit in the believer's life):

And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat? And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.

The word translated as told is

Told (, higid) = 22

This is the essence of the 22 Letters - they tell the old, old story.

Eve's excuse for the Fall integrates with Spoke 3 of the Bible Wheel (Genesis 3.11):

And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.

The highlighted phrase forms a KeyLink to 2 Corinthians on Spoke 3 (vs. 11.2f):

For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ. But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.

These are the only two verses in all the Bible that contain this phrase. Using modular notation and representing the verses as geometric points displays the correlation between the Chapter structure of Genesis and Spoke 3:

keyKeyLink: the serpent beguiled
PGenesis( 31 ) chain PBible( 33 )

Understanding Christ as our High Priest, Paul's godly jealousy to present "a chaste virgin to Christ" futher integrates 2 Corinthians with the command given in Leviticus (vs. 21.10f):

And he that is the high priest among his brethren, upon whose head the anointing oil was poured, and that is consecrated to put on the garments ... shall take a wife in her virginity. A widow, or a divorced woman, or profane, or an harlot, these shall he not take: but he shall take a virgin of his own people to wife.

These two verses are actually linked by a KeyLink based on the set {vigin withinverse 2 corrupted/profane}:

KeyLink: God's Virgin Bride
Leviticuschain2 Corinthians

Note how the themes link from Genesis 3 to Leviticus to 2 Corinthians. Truly, we have wheels within wheels within wheels! The Infinite Wisdom of Almighty God!

Both the cause and the effect of the events of Genesis 3 are intimately related to food and the idea of eating (Genesis 3.14):

And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.

Compare this with Isaiah 3 and Isaiah 47, both on Spoke 3 of the Inner Wheel of Isaiah.

All these themes of food, eating, nourishment, clothing, covering, and sorrow and even exile from the Holy Land have their origin in Genesis 3. They manifest in the three books of Spoke 3 as follows:

Leviticus Holiness Laws, Dietary Laws, Laws against Nakedness.
Lamentations The magnified absence of God's Comfort; Famine; Nakedness, Exile. The Fall all over again.
2 Corinthians The magnified presence of God's Comfort; Abundance

Yet for all this, it is but a mere outline. The evidence of God's design is simply overwhelming. We have here an embarrassment of riches, so great as to be uncountable.
