Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is infinite.
Psalm 147:4
The circular structure of the Wheel is most naturally described using modular arithmetic ,
the mathematics of cyclical number patterns.
For example, the books found on the first Spoke are the
1^{st}, 23^{rd}, and 45^{th} books of the Canon. These numbers
all leave the same remainder, namely 1, when divided by 22. This is because they are all
1 plus a multiple of 22. Likewise,
the ordinal numbers of the books on the second Spoke always leave a remainder of 2
when divided by 22. This is because they are all 2 plus a multiple of 22 + 2. These patterns are displayed in the table below.
Mathematicians describe such numbers by saying they are
equal or congrugent Modulo 22.
These ideas help see the structure of the Bible Wheel because the ordinal number
of each book relates to its Spoke and Cycle
numbers through this simple formula:
Book Number = Spoke + (Cycle  1) x 22
This table gives a few examples of how this works:

Spoke 1 
Spoke 2 
... 
Spoke 22 
Cycle 1 
1 = 1 + 0 x 22 
2 = 2 + 0 x 22 
... 
22 = 22 + 0 x 22 
Cycle 2 
23 = 1 + 1 x 22 
24 = 2 + 1 x 22 
... 
44 = 22 + 1 x 22 
Cycle 3 
45 = 1 + 2 x 22 
46 = 2 + 2 x 22 
... 
66 = 22 + 2 x 22 
A very useful and compact notation that brings forth many patterns from God's Word is
found when we denote a book's ordinal number using a Spoke Number (or Letter) with
a subscript indicating the Cycle Number:
Book Number = Spoke_{Cycle}
This table gives a few examples of this notation:
