Spoke 5

John 5 chain Life

Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five porches. In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water. For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had. And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years. When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole? The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me. Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk. And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the sabbath.

John 5

Five Porches

The first occurrence of the Number 5 is found in John 4 when Jesus reveals His knowledge of the Samaritan woman's five husbands, but its appearance here in the opening passage of John 5 is still striking and significant. The association with the impotent, blind, halt and withered is particularly meanignful because Christians have since the earliest times associated the Number 5 with the wounds of Christ - his two hands, two feet, and side. The Catholics call them the Five Sacred Wounds. This has been memorialized in tradition Christian iconography with the pentagram. The specific association of the Number n38 with physical suffering enlightens our reading of Psalm 38 and the Grace Manifest Holograph which is built on multiples of n19 and n38 = 2 x n19.

Walking with God

And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years. When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole? The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me. Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk. And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the sabbath. The Jews therefore said unto him that was cured, It is the sabbath day: it is not lawful for thee to carry thy bed. He answered them, He that made me whole, the same said unto me, Take up thy bed, and walk. Then asked they him, What man is that which said unto thee, Take up thy bed, and walk? [John 5]

This passage records the only time Jesus caused someone to "rise and walk" in John's Gospel. It is profoundly integrated with the theme of "walking with God" that begins with Enoch in Genesis 5 and manifests with extreme clarity in the distribution of verses containing the words "walk*" and "God" in the Bible:

This is discussed at length in the Spoke 5 article Walking with God. This graph is highly correlated with the distribution of the word "walk*" in the Gospel of John:

The three highlighted peaks correspond to the letters Heh Lamed Kaph which spell the fundamental Heh KeyWord pic (Halakh, Walk), which is also integrated with the Number 5 through its numerical value:

Walk

pic

Halakh

= 55

What kind of miracle are we witnessing here? Endless reiterative integration! The joint distribution of the idea of walking in the Bible and the Gospel of John is governed by the Hebrew letters that spell it! Glory! Glory! Glory! There is no limit to the infinite Wisdom of Almighty God - and to think, He has given us His Holy Word to teach us the Way to Walk with Him! Oh! Praise His Holy Name!

Life in Himself

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live. For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself; And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man. Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation. [John 5]

The association between Life and the Number 5 begins in the beginning with the creation of Life on the Fifth Day. It is reiterated in the Fifth Commandment and also manifests in Romans 5 on that Inner Cycle (cf. The Grace of Life).
