Spoke 19

Psalms, Mark, 2 John

Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven. And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

Matthew 19 (vs. 23f)

The Eye of a Needle

Matthew 19 is perfectly integrated with the structure of the Hebrew alphabet. In precise analogy with the great alphabetic verses, the name of the Nineteenth Letter, (Quph, Eye of a Needle), appears only in the Nineteenth chapter. This link is amplified by the immediate appearance of the Number 100, the numerical weight of Quph, in the verses that follow (Matthew 19.25f):

When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved? But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible. Then answered Peter and said unto him, Behold, we have forsaken all, and followed thee; what shall we have therefore? And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my nameís sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life. But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first.

The theme expressed in these verses coheres with the great theme of Quph, which represents the narrow, constricted way of the Cross that every believer must follow. It is the stumbling stone of Golgotha, where the flesh must be crucified.

The Flesh

This leads to the other fundamental concept associated with Quph; the flesh. This also is a dominant theme of Matthew 19. We read (Matthew 19.3f):

The Pharisees also came unto him, tempting him, and saying unto him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause? And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.

Mother's Womb

These words of Jesus were hard to hear, and caused the disciples some consternation, as we read:

His disciples say unto him, If the case of the man be so with his wife, it is not good to marry. But he said unto them, All men cannot receive this saying, save they to whom it is given. For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their motherís womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heavenís sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it.

Although the primary correlation of Matthew 19 is with the basic meanings of Quph as representing the narrow gate, the flesh, and the Number 100, I have discovered one KeyLink between Matthew 19 and the Book of Psalms. The key phrase that lept out to me is "mother's womb" which reminded me of Psalm 139.13:

For thou didst form my inward parts: Thou didst cover me in my motherís womb. I will give thanks unto thee; For I am fearfully and wonderfully made: Wonderful are thy works; And that my soul knoweth right well. My frame was not hidden from thee, When I was made in secret, And curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.

In the KJV, the phrase "mother's womb" is found within one verse of "made" only in Matthew 19 and Psalm 139. We have therefore this second order KeyLink:
