Spoke 5

Romans 5 chain Deuteronomy

For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.

For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ. Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.

Romans 5

Honour thy father and thy mother, as the LORD thy God hath commanded thee; that thy days may be prolonged, and that it may go well with thee, in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.


The Grace of Life

Romans 5 integrates with the great Spoke 5 theme of Life that originates with the creation of Life and the First Blessing characteristic of the Fifth Day of Creation. This is emphasised in the Fifth Commandment with its promise of long life (uniquely reiterated in Ephesians on Spoke 5), the Beatitudes of Matthew 5, and the distribution of the phrase well with thee that is strongly maximized in Deuteronomy, the Fifth Book:

The same theme is found on the Inner Cycle of John (cf. Life in Himself).

The Gift of Grace

Many Christian exegetes interested in Numbers and Scripture have seen a connection between Grace and the Number 5. I believe this is correct, though not quite as obvious to me as the link between Life and the Number 5 discussed above. But now that I've seen it, I wonder how I ever missed it. A large part of the association may well be due to the natural link between the ideas of Grace and Life, but in any case we have many immediate witnesses to the validity of this association. I begin with this KeyLink between Romans 5 and Ephesians (Spoke 5, Cycle 3) based on the set ("By Grace", Gift, God) [Verify] :

Romans 5.15 Ephesians 2.8
But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many. For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God.

Using modular notation to write 49 = 5 + 2 x 22 = 53, we arrive at this representation of this KeyLink between Romans 5 and Spoke 5 of the Bible Wheel:

keyKeyLink Set: ('By Grace', Gift, God)

Yet this is but the beginning. Romans 5 opens with the words:

Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

The highlighted words (Grace, Faith, "of God") [Verify] appear together in one and only one other verse of the entire KJV, which, as you might have guessed, is again Ephesians 2.8 - the primary Biblical witness of salvation by grace through faith, and that "not of yourselves: it is the gift of God." Glory! We have a second KeyLink between Romans 5 and Spoke 5 based on the fundamental theme of God's Grace:

keyKeyLink Set: ('Grace', Faith, 'of God')
PRomans( 5 ) chain PBible( 53 )

Now when evaluating the significance of KeyLinks like these, it is absolutely essential to keep in mind the meaning of the verse, which in this case is one of the most significant verses in all the Bible relating to the idea of Grace. These links are particularly intriguing in light of the numerous KeyLinks between Romans 4 and Galatians (Spoke 4, Cycle 3). The thematic sweep of Romans follows the pattern exemplified in the order of the Canon.

The dominance of the theme of Grace in Romans 5 can be seen in the distribution of the word "grace" in the Book of Romans (KJV):

The secondary peak from Chapter 11 is primarily due to the use of the word grace three times in verse 6. In Romans 5, the word is distributed in 6 verses throughout the chapter, which inicates it is a theme that runs through the whole chapter.
