Who hath wrought and done it, calling the generations from the beginning? I the LORD, the first, and with the last; I am he

Isaiah 41.4

The reality of the supernatural design of the overall structure of Scripture in the form of the Wheel is most clearly seen in the way God distributed His Words thoughout the Bible. The degree of integration is astounding. Not only are the books on each Spoke inextricably united with profoundly powerful themes, but the themes themeselves are integrated with the meaning of the associated Hebrew Letters as revealed in the av and the very structure of the Hebrew language! There is no end to the wonders of our God!

Biblical word distributions display two significant features. The most important is the relation between the ThemeSet (a word, set of words, or phrase) and the Spoke where its distribution is maximized. This simply shows where God has used the ThemeSet with the greatest frequency. It is a mathematical measure of the relation between a Theme and a given Spoke.

The second feature, that appears in many but not all distributions, is the correlation between the distributions on different Cycles. This relation is measured by the cc. When this number is large (close to unity) it shows how God designed the word distribution so that not only is it maximized on a given Spoke, but the sub-distributions on each Cycle rise and fall together across multiple Spokes! It is the most astounding proof of the overall divine design of Scripture in the form of the Wheel and gives great insight into the ebb and flow of God's everlasting story.

The graphs below display a few of the most significant distributions I have discovered to date. It should be remembered that this is but the beginning. New wonders appear each time I open the Bible.

 
Spoke 1 - Aleph

Theme: Creation

Creation is one of the most obvious themes uniting the Books on Spoke 1. This graph is extremely significant. It shows how the the distribution of the Hebrew and Greek words denoting creation are found on Spoke 1 nearly ten times above average. Furthermore, the cc calculated pairwise for the three Cycles has the the following values:

Cycles 1 and 2: CC12 = .90
Cycles 1 and 3: CC13 = .50

Cycles 2 and 3: CC23 = .60

Simply stated, such magnitiudes do not happen by chance. We have solid scientific evidence of God's divine design of the Bible in the form of the Wheel.


Theme: Father Abraham

Just as God the Father is the first Person of the Trinity, so the first word of the Hebrew language is Av - Father. It is the root of the name Abraham (or rather Avraham), the Father of the Faith, whose name means Father of a multitude, The graph shows the distribution of all verses that contain the words father and Abraham.

The cc calculated for each pair of distributions has the following values:

Cycles 1 and 2: CC12 = .25
Cycles 1 and 3: CC13 = .92
Cycles 2 and 3: CC23 = .24

Note the extremely large value of CC13 = .92 calculated between Cycle 1 and Cycle 3. The values are smaller for correlations involving Cycle 2 because Isaiah doesn't play a very strong role in this theme. The primary correlation is between Genesis and Romans.

On the other hand, Genesis and Isaiah are most strongly linked with the theme of Creation as shown above with CC12 = .90. What this all means is that we have a beautiful mathematical measure of the themes uniting the Spokes of the Wheel that also distinguishes between the individual books involved with each theme! The fact that any of this is even possible proves beyond all doubt that the Lord God Almighty is the Author of the Holy Bible. Praise His Holy Name!

 
Spoke 2 - Beyt

Theme: Prophecy

The Number 2 and the Letter Beyt are deeply integrated with the Word and the Second Person of the Trinity, God the Son (Ben) whose name is called the Word of God. As it is written (Rev 19.10) "the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy."

The cc calculated for each pair of distributions has the following values:

Cycles 1 and 2: CC12 = -.24
Cycles 1 and 3: CC13 = -.22
Cycles 2 and 3: CC23 = .67

The relatively small negative values involving Cycle 1 gives an example of how distributions of ThemeWords that are maximized on a given Spoke are not always correlated throughout the entire span of the 22 Spokes. The significant value of CC23 = .64 between Cycle 2 and Cycle 3 is discussed in the article Prophecy.


Theme: The Word

As with the distribution of "Prophecy" on the Wheel, so the Word also is maximized on Spoke 2. This all integrates with the nature of the Holy Trinity. In particular, the Second Person, God the Son, "whose name is called the Word of God."(Rev 19.13)


Theme: The Land of Egypt

The great events of Exodus are referenced in Jeremiah more than anywhere else in Scripture. This theme is deeply integrated with the life of the Saviour, as it is written in Matthew 2, "Out of Egypt I have called my son."

There is only one cc for this distribution because the ThemePhrase does not appear on Cycle 3. Its value is an astounding CC12 = .79, which is particularly significant in light of it being a very common phrase found 227 times in Scripture. All of this is greatly amplified by its profound theological ramifications relating to the Trinity.

 
Spoke 3 - Gimel

Theme: Holy Fire

Spoke 3 reveals the nature of the Holy Spirit Who is deeply integrated with the idea of fire as when He baptized the believers at Pentecost, resting on their heads in the form of tongues of fire, and in Matthew 3 when John the Baptist said Christ would baptize with "the Holy Ghost and fire."


Theme: Nakedness

This theme orginates in Genesis 3, is greatly amplified in Leviticus, is seen in stark horror in Lamentations, and resolved in II Corinthians. It is all based on the Gimel KeyWord Galah, which means "to uncover, make naked, reveal."

 
Spoke 4 - Dalet

Theme: Door/Gate

The name of the Fourth letter pic (Dalet, cognate with Delet = Door) is the basis of one of the most astounding integrations of the Hebrew alphabet with the structure of the Bible. The graph shows how the distribution of the English words "door[s]" and "gate[s]" in the KJV are significantly maximized on Spoke 4. This pattern is repeated in the chapter structure of Genesis, with the debut of the word "Door" in Genesis 4. Likewise, this integrates with the Inner Wheel of Revelation, with Revelation 4 opening with "behold, a door was opened in heaven".


Theme: Numbers

The graph shows that the distribution of the English word "number*" in the KJV on the Wheel. The extremely large maximum is from the Book 4, the Book of Numbers.


Theme: In the Wilderness

The graph shows that the distribution of the English phrase "In the wilderness" in the KJV on the Wheel. This is the Hebrew name of the Fourth Book. Thus, the distribution of both the English and the Hebrew names of Book 4 are maximized on Spoke 4. This further integrates with the chapter sequence of Matthew - where we see Jesus "in the wilderness" for 40 days (cf. Each Day for a Year in Matthew 4. Endless wonder!


Theme: Know that I am YHVH

The graph shows the distribution of the phrase "know that I am the Lord" on the Wheel. The massive peak is all from Book 26, the Book of Ezekiel. This corresponds to the value of the Tetratragrammaton - YHVH.


Theme: The Four Directions

The graph shows that the distribution of the words north, east, west, and south are maximized on Spoke 4.

 
Spoke 5 - Heh

Theme: Well with thee

This graph shows the distribution of the phrase "well with thee" which is part of the promise given in the Fifth Commandment and uniquely reiterated on Spoke 5 in Ephesisans (vs. 6.1): "Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;) That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth." This demonstrates the integration of the Fifth Commandment with Deuteronomy and Ephesians.

There is only one cc for this distribution because the ThemePhrase does not appear on Cycle 3. Its value is an incredible CC13 = .96. This is as close to absolute proof as science is able to come.


Theme: Mighty Hand

The graph shows the distribution of all verses containing the phrase "mighty hand" in the KJV. The absolute maximum occurs in Book 5, Deuteronomy which geometrically correlates with the only occurrence on Cycle 2 in Daniel. This graph manifests the same theme as that exhibited in the distribution of the words "might*" and "power*" shown below.


Theme: Mighty Power

The graph shows the distribution of all verses containing the words might* and power*. All three books contribute to the maximum on Spoke 5. Likeswise, all three books contribute to the secondary maximum on Spoke 1. This gives rise to relatively large values for the ccs:

Cycles 1 and 2: CC12 = .33
Cycles 1 and 3: CC13 = .64
Cycles 2 and 3: CC23 = .66

It is important to remember that we would expect these values to be closer to zero rather than unity if the distributions were truly random.


Theme: Pentecost

The graph shows the distribution of S# H7620, usually translated as "week" or "weeks". It most strongly associated with the Feast of Weeks, Pentecost, which is on the 50th Day after Passover. The cc between Cycle 1 and Cycle 2 attains a very large value of .85.

 
Spoke 6 - Vav

Theme: Ephraim

The distribution of the name Ephraim is maximized on Spoke 6 in the books of Joshua and Hosea. This integrates with the links between Isaiah 28 and Hosea (Book 28) based on the name Ephraim. It is also interesting that Joshua's original name was Hosea (Hoshea), as seen in Deut. 32.44.

 
Spoke 9 - Tet

Theme: How thou art cut off!

The density of the phrase "cut off" is greatly maximized in the little book of Obadiah on Spoke 9. This then integrates with its first occurrence in Genesis 9, Isaiah 9, and its great manifestation in Daniel 9 with the cutting off of the Messiah.

 
Spoke 12 - Lamed

Theme: Teaching

The density of the words teach* and taught is maximized in the Pastoral Epistles, with the absolute maximum appearing in Titus on Spoke 12 corresponding to Lamed which means to teach! Truly, there is no end to the wonders of God's Word!


Theme: Think Soberly

This graph shows the distribution of all cognates with Sophroneo (To Be Sober, S# H4993). It is profoundly integrated with the great Spoke 12 theme of Teaching and Learning, and the Romans 12.

 
Spoke 14 - Nun

Theme: The Passover

The Passover is one of the most significant symbols in all the Bible. It is prefigured in Genesis 14 in the appearance of Melchizadek who brought forth Bread and Wine. The Book of Hebrews on Spoke 14 then explains how Melchizadek relates to Christ, our eternal Priest. The date of the Passover integrates with the maximization of the word "passover" in Book 14 (II Chronicles), as shown in the graph. Note also that the word "passover" appears twice on Cycle 3: once in I Corinthians (Spoke 2) which corresponds to Exodus where the Passover was introduced, and once in Hebrews (Spoke 14) which corresponds to II Chronicles where "passover" is maximized. This divine integratkion is measured by the cc between Cycle 1 and Cycle 3, which attains the unusually large value of CC13 = .72.

 
Spoke 15 - Samekh

Theme: Haggai

The distribution of the name Haggai appears in only two books of the Bible: Ezra and Haggai. The distribution is perfectly correlated on the Wheel, with the cc between Cycle 1 and Cycle 2 CC12 = 1.0 - the absolute maximum. This is but one of the many KeyLinks between these two books.

 
Spokes 15, 16 - Samek, Ayin

Theme: Zerubbabel

The distribution of the name Zerubabbel is strongly correlated on the Wheel, linking two sets of books: Ezra and Nehemiah on Cycle 1 are linked with Haggai and Zechariah on Cycle 2. The correlation coefficient is .91! The relation amongst these books has been expounded upon at length by various scholars long before the discovery of the Wheel. The primary theme, that of laying the foundation of God's House, integrates with the meaning of Samek (Support/Uphold) where the maximum is found.

 
Spoke 16 - Ayin

Theme: Shepherd

The idea of the Shepherd is a primary theme of Spoke 16 that manifests with extreme clarity in Zewchariah and I Peter. The graph shows the distribution density of "shepherd throughout the Bible, confirming existence of the rather obvious common theme.

 
Spoke 17 - Peh

Theme: Before the King

The distribution of the phrase L'Pani HaMelek (Before the King) is significantly maximized in the book of Esther. This coheres with the associated Peh KeyWord Panim (Face) and the great themes of Spoke 17, such as the Promise of Christ's Coming and the return of the Lord to judge the world.

 
Spoke 18 - Tsaddi

Theme: Ten Righteous?

The fundamental Tsaddi KeyWord Tsaddik (Righteousness) is maximized on Spoke 18 of the Inner Cycle of Genesis. There are numerous links with other primary Spoke 18 themes discussed in the article.

 
Spoke 19 - Quph

Theme: Psalms: A Cry unto God

The use of two fundamental Quph KeyWords, Qere (Cry) and Qol (Voice) in in the first person sense of "I call" and "I cry" are greatly maximized in the Book of Psalms on Spoke 19.


Theme: Mark: The Gospel of Action

This graph shows the distribution of verses that contain words from the set {immediately, straightway, forthwith} in the KJV. They correlate with the Quph KeyWord Qal, which means swift or quick, which are maximized in Mark on Spoke 19, despite it being the smallest Gospel.

 
Spoke 20 - Resh

Theme: Luke: Health

The placement of Doctor Luke's Gospel on Spoke 20 integrates with the Resh KeyWord Ropha, which means Physician. It comes from the root rapha which means "to heal." This manifests in the maximization of words relating to "heal" and "health" on Spoke 20. It also integrates with the chapter sequence of Genesis where we find the first occurrence of rapha in Genesis 20.


Theme: Friend

The Gospel of Luke is addressed to Theophilos, which means Friend of God. This integrates with the Resh KeyWord Ra'ah (Friend). This manifests in the distribution of "friend" on the Wheel where it is greatly maximized on Spoke 20.

The cc calculated pairwise for the three Cycles has the the following values:

Cycles 1 and 2: CC = .78
Cycles 1 and 3: CC = .38
Cycles 2 and 3: CC = .38

The large value of .78 displays the profound integration of Proverbs with Luke's Gospel. The values involving Cycle 3 have the same value because they depend almost entirely on the two hits found in the tiny book of III John. This is one of the great signs of God's design. Remember, we would expect values near zero if the distribution were random.

 
Spoke 21 - Shin

Theme: Sent

The Shin KeyWord (Shelach, Send) sets the basis of John's Gospel. This manifests in the miracle at the Pool of Siloam, which John explicitly defines as meaning "Sent." Likewise, Christ's reference to God the Father in John's Gospel is characterised by the phrase "him that sent me" or "he that sent me." The graph shows the distribtion of the phrase "sent me" throughout Scripture. It is greatly maximized in the Gospel of John on Spoke 21.


Theme: Sun/Light Of The World

The Shin KeyWord pic (Shemesh, Sun) manifests brilliantly in the book of Ecclessiastes which is marked by the phrase "under the sun." And just as the physical Sun is the light of this world, so Jesus claimed this title in the Gospel of John on Spoke 21.


Theme: The Letter Shin

The Letter Shin pic functions as a pronomial particle in the Hebrew grammar. When prefixed to a verb, it indicates "who", "whom", "which", "what" or "that." The distribution of all words in the Hebrew Bible that are prefixed by Shin is significantly maximized on Spoke 21. The evidence for the divine design of the Bible in haromony with the Hebrew Alphabet is overwhelming.


Theme: Labour

The Book of Ecclesiastes speaks of the great pain of labour people suffer under the sun. This theme manifests in the distribution of "labour*" which is maximized on Spoke 21.

 
Spoke 22 - Tav

Theme: Worship

Creation is consummated in the great outpouring of Worship from all God's creatures. This magnificent Spoke 22 theme orginiates in Genesis 22 where we find the first occurrence of the word "worship" (... in asscoiation with the sacrifice of Abraham's "only son" whom he loved!). It is amplified in Psalm 22 - the Psalm of the Cross - and Psalm 66 which integrates with Isaiah 66 and Book 66 (Revelation).


Theme: The Seal of God

Just as the theme of Creation dominates Spoke 1, so the word "Seal" dominates the final book of Spoke 22. Such Perfection! Such Grace! Such Glory in God's Word!



 

Theme: Resurrection

The word "resurrection is maximized on Spoke 22, which means that the geometric structure of Scripture teaches exactly the same message as its plain text: there will be a resurrection of the dead at the end of time.

Likewise, exatly the same pattern is found in the distribution in the chapter sequence of Matthew, where it is maximized in Mathhew 22. The cc between these two graphs is .74!
