Spoke 1

John 1 chain Genesis

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

Bible Wheel: Spoke 1, Cycle 1
(Genesis 1.1-5)

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

Inner Cycle: Spoke 1, Cycle 1
(John 1.1-5)

In the beginning

The integration of the Inner Cycle of chapters in John with the order of the Christian Canon is extremely strong. The content of John 1 cohere's perfectly with that of Genesis. Both speak of God, Creation and Light. Just as Matthew 1 actually uses the Greek name of Genesis, so John and Genesis open with exactly the same phrase "In the beginning."

The correlation above is an example of Thread 2 - Inner Wheels and Cycles linked to the order of the Canon. But there is a much deeper correlation going on here that links to Thread 3 - Biblical Holographs. The ten verses quoted above - five from Genesis and five from John - form the Creation Hyperholograph, which is one of the most significant discoveries from Thread 3. It is the grandest holographic structure I have yet to discover in the the Bible - placed here in the absolute core of the creation passages. Glory to God Almighty!

Born of God

He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. [John 1.10f]

The creation theme in John 1 is extremely strong. The word "genesis" means origin, beginning, or birth. It is cognoate with the verb gennao (S# G1080) translated as "were born" in the verse above.

Wheels within Wheels

He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Esaias. [John 1.23]

As the details of the Wheel are filled in, more and more links from deep levels begin to appear. This quote from Isaiah is John's first explicit quote of an Old Testament prophet. The verse number n23 corresponds to the ordinal postition of Isaiah in the Bible - Book n23. Exactly the same phenomenon appears in Matthew 1 where the first prophet quoted is also Isaiah and also in verse 23.

This correlation can be viewed on two levels. First, we could veiw this as a link between the sequence of verses in John 1 and the order of the Canon:

First Prophetic Quote
PJohn 1( 23 ) chain PBible( 23 )

Alternately, we could view it as link between the sequence of chapters of John and Spoke 1 of the Bible Wheel. Using modnotation to write 23 = 12 (Spoke 1, Cycle 2), we would represent this link this way:

First Prophetic Quote
PJohn( 11 ) chain PBible( 12 )

Let me compare these two views of this KeyLink: The first views the link as between the 23rd Verse of John 1 and the 23rd Book of the Bible, whereas the second views it as between the first Chapter of John and the Book of Isaiah on the first Spoke of the Bible Wheel. Now I know that this is where many people begin to feel dizzy. Sometimes its hard to know what level we are looking at. I've draw some pictures to help make this clear in my article called Three Levels.

Behold the Lamb of God

The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. [John 1.29]

The origin of the "Lamb of God" is found in the Sacrifice of Isaac in Genesis 22 which brings together the Aleph (Book 1) and Tav (Chapter 22). Note the coordinated debut of the words "behold" (= 19) and "lamb" (= 361 = 19 x 19)

Jacob's Ladder

And he saith unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Hereafter ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.

There are two and only two verses that speak of ("angels of God ascending and descending") [Verify] . One is from John1 above, the other from Genesis (vs. 28.10f):

And he lighted upon a certain place, and tarried there all night, because the sun was set; and he took of the stones of that place, and put them for his pillows, and lay down in that place to sleep. And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it. And, behold, the LORD stood above it, and said, I am the LORD God of Abraham thy father, and the God of Isaac: the land whereon thou liest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed; And thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed. And, behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places whither thou goest, and will bring thee again into this land; for I will not leave thee, until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of.

The Logos Star

The Logos Star - Sevenfold geometric representation of the prime Number 373

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

The value of the name of the author of the Fourth Gospel is pic (John, S# G2491) = 1119, which factors as 1119 = 3 x n373. The prime number n373 is the value of the pic (Logos, Word, S# G3056. It is a figurate number composed of Seven Stars of Wisdom. It occurs three times in John 1.1, so we may write:

The Gospel according to 3 x n373: In the beginning was the n373, and the n373 was with God, and God was the n373.

I would like to thank Craig Paadekooper for sharing this insight with me.
