Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

Matthew 5:18

The supernatural integration of the chapter sequence of Matthew is a glory to behold. It is here that we behold a great convergence of Threads 1 & 2 with hundreds of links from the chapters of Matthew simultaneously linking to the chapter sequence of Isaiah and elements from the corresponding Spoke of the Wheel.


Matthew 1 - Genesis: Matthew 1 opens with the words "The book of the generation (lit. genesis) of Jesus Christ." This forms a keylink since only Genesis and Matthew 1 use the phrase the book of the generation(s) of. This links to the fundamental Spoke 1 theme of Creation.


Matthew 2 - Exodus: The depiction of the birth of Jesus found in Matthew 2 parallels that of the birth of Moses found in Exodus. In both cases there is the slaughter of the innocent children, which Matthew presents as a fulfillment of a prophecy from the book of Jeremiah from Spoke 2. The link to Exodus is made explicit in the words Out of Egypt I have called my son.


Matthew 3 - Leviticus: Matthew 3 presents John the Baptist - who identifies himself as "the voice calling in the wilderness" - wearing raiment of camel's hair and eating wild locusts and honey. This links directly to the Hebrew name of Leviticus, VaYiqra, which means "And he called." The camel is the name of the Third Letter Gimel, that governs the Third Spoke. Both Clothing and Nourishment are major themes from Spoke 3. John proclaimed the coming of Jesus who would baptize with the Holy Spirit and fire, and the distribution of the words Holy and Fire are sharply maximized on Spoke 3 in Leviticus.


Matthew 4 - Numbers: Matthew 4 opens with the temptation of Jesus 40 days in the wilderness. The Hebrew name of Numbers is B'Midbar, "In the Wilderness". Numbers has 40 years in the wilderness, Matthew has 40 days. This follows the KeySet pattern of a day for a year which integrates many themes on Spoke 4. (Cf the Num 14.34 - Ezek 4.6 KeyLink). It also integrates with the Fourth Day of Creation when lights were set to fulfill four functions: signs, seasons, days, and years.


Matthew 5 - Deuteronomy: Matthew 5 opens with the Beatitudes - the greatest concentrations of blessings in the Bible are found here and in Deuteronomy. This integrates with the Fifth Day of Creation (first blessing pronounced by God) and the Fifth Commandment (first commandment with a promise - which also is uniquely reiterated in Ephesians on the Fifth Spoke.)


Matthew 7 - Judges: Matthew 7 opens with the words of Jesus:

Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

Yet another "mere coincidence?"


Matthew 11 - 1 Kings: In the Canon, the Prophet Elijah (Elias) first appears in I Kings. Both Matthew and Revelation follow this pattern, with the Elijah first appearing in Matthew 11 and Revelation 11, repsectively.


Matthew 12 - 2 Kings: II Kings is the only OT Book to mention Baalzebub. This forms the basis of a strong link to Matthew 12.


Matthew 16 - Nehemiah: Matthew 16 links primarily to the theme of Stone and Witness (Ed, Ayin KeyWord) which manifests most strongly in 1 Peter. Thus, Matthew 16.16 is known as Peter's Great Confession, the Rock upon which Christ builds His Church.


Matthew 19 - Psalms: The only reference to the "Eye of a Needle" in Matthew appears in Matthew 19, in perfect correlation with name of the Nineteenth letter Quph. There is not an obvious correlation with the Book of Psalms, except inosfar as Psalms integrates with Quph, as described in A Cry unto God


Matthew 22 - Song of Solomon: Matthew 22 opens with the words of Jesus: The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son. This integrates with the Song of Solomon, the Wedding Song, and the major themes of Spoke 22 relating to Consummation and the Bride of Christ.


Matthew 23 - Isaiah: One of the most intringuing correlations is found when the when the chapter sequence of Matther symmetrically intesects the chapter sequence of Isaiah. This forms a interlocking key:


Matthew 24 - Jeremiah: Matthew 24 opens with the words:

And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple. And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.

This parallels the calling of the prophet Jeremiah (v 1.10):

See, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant.


Matthew 25 - Lamentations: All the things Jesus spoke of in the judgment between the goats and the sheep relate to Spoke 3. He said "For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me." In particular, the themes of Nakedness/Clothing, Nourishment, and Drink all relate to Spoke 3. This is particularly evident in Genesis 3 where our fall into sin is linked to eating and clothing, and it is greatly amplified in all three chapters from Spoke 3 of the Inner Wheel of Isaiah. The negative image of all these forms the great theme of Lamentations.


Matthew 27 - Daniel: Matthew 27 contains the only NT record of the resurrection that happened when Jesus was crucified. We read (Matt 27.52):

And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.

This corresponds to one of the most explicit statements of the resurrection found in the Old Testament (Daniel 12.2):

And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.

News Flash! (12/10/2003) I just discovered that the entire chapter of Matthew 27 is profoundly and clearly integrated with the account of Daniel cast into the Lions' Sen, complete with a KeyLink based on the sealing of the stone over the mouth of the Sepulchre/Lions' Den! Endless glory! Cf. Jesus and the Lions' Den.
