Spoke 2

Matthew 2 chain Exodus

And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him. When he arose, he took the young child and his mother by night, and departed into Egypt: And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Out of Egypt have I called my son.

Matthew 2.13f

The alphabetic integration of the chapter structure of Matthew is like that of Isaiah. In both cases the second and third letters first appear in the second and third chapters respectively. The case in point being Matthew 2 which opens with the words:

Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.

Bethlehem, the house of bread, displays the actual Hebrew name of the Second Letter. This is amplified by the first occurrence of the Greek word (oikia, house) also being found in Matthew 2 (vs. 9):

When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy. And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.

Matthew 2 and Isaiah 2 are therefore linked by the meaning of the Second Letter:

1st Occurrence: House
Isaiah 2 chain Beyt chain Matthew 2

The integration of the chapter structure of Matthew with the Bible is nowhere more obvious than here in Matthew 2, which explicitly refers to the theme of the second book, Exodus. The Scripture cited (Out of Egypt I have called my son) is from Hosea 11.1 and is not geometrically correlated on the Wheel. But the theme presented in Matthew 2 is strongly correlated with the Second Book, Exodus.

Searching the entire Bible for all verses containing the set {"my son" withinverse 1 Egypt} results in four verses: Genesis 37.35 (Joseph sold into Egypt), Exodus 4.21 (God's declaration to Pharaoh that Israel is His son), Hosea 11.1 (Out of Egypt I have called my son) and Matthew 2 (quoted above.)

This set forms a strong Link, (but not a KeyLink, because it links to other off-spoke verses), between Exodus and Matthew 2:

Thematic Link: Out of Egypt I have called My Son
PBible( 2 ) chain PMatthew( 2 )

This all coheres with the great theme of the Second Spoke, which reveals the nature of the Second Person of the Holy Trinity, God the Son. Thus it is in the Second Book, (as with the Second Psalm), that we find the first declaration of God's Son:

And the LORD said unto Moses, When thou goest to return into Egypt, see that thou do all those wonders before Pharaoh, which I have put in thine hand: but I will harden his heart, that he shall not let the people go. And thou shalt say unto Pharaoh, Thus saith the LORD, Israel is my son, even my firstborn: And I say unto thee, Let my son go, that he may serve me: and if thou refuse to let him go, behold, I will slay thy son, even thy firstborn.

Now the theme takes a dark turn. Continuing in Matthew 2 (vs. 15f):

Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently enquired of the wise men. Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying, In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not.

The Book of Jeremiah here refered to as "Jeremy" occupies Cell 2 of Spoke 2. The mass murder of sons (Beyt KeyWord - , Ben, Son) at the advent of the Deliverer Jesus parallels the events surrounding the advent of the Deliverer Moses, (Exodus 1.15f):

And the king of Egypt spake to the Hebrew midwives, of which the name of the one was Shiphrah, and the name of the other Puah: And he said, When ye do the office of a midwife to the Hebrew women, and see them upon the stools; if it be a son, then ye shall kill him: but if it be a daughter, then she shall live.

We have therefore a great river of common themes linking Exodus, Jeremiah, Matthew 2, the fundamental Beyt-KeyWord Son, and the advent of the Second Person of the Godhead. Such is the infinite Wisdom of our Lord God Almighty!
