The Marks of Christ

But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world. For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature. And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God. From henceforth let no man trouble me: for I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus. Brethren, the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.

Galatians 6:14f (Spoke 4, Cycle 3)

And the LORD said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark [Tav] upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof.

Ezekiel 9:4 (Spoke 4, Cycle 2)

The theme of the Mark originates on the Fourth Day of Creation when God gave the fourfold reason for the Sun, and Moon, and Stars:

And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:

This fourfold pattern is reiterated in Galatians as discussed in the Four Weak and Beggarly Elements article. The word translated as signs is from the root pic (Aut). This word first appears on the Fourth Day and next appears in Genesis 4 after Cain slew his his brother. This mark then becomes a major theme in Ezekiel chapter 9. All of this is discussed in the Genesis 4 article.

The theme of the "mark" also plays a central role in Romans 4 and even manifests in the course of Church History, with the Constantine's vision of the Sign of the Cross in the Fourth Century which gave rest (Fourth Commandment) to the People of God.
