Spoke 14 - Nun

2 Chronicles, Zephaniah, Hebrews

Inheritance and Posterity

God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high; Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.

Hebrews 1:1ff (Spoke 14, Cycle 3)

Inheritence and Posterity

The name of the Fourteenth Letter (Nun) literally denotes a fish. This gave rise to a variety of related meanings such as to continue, increase, propagate, and sprout. The word Nun is the root of נין (neen, son) which occurs thrice in Scripture, always in conjunction with another Nun KeyWord נכד (neked, posterity). This pair appears three times translated twice as as "son" (Neen) and "nephew" (Neked) and onece as "son" (neen) and "son's son" (neked).

Integration with the Inner Wheel of Isaiah

Neen is profoundly integrated with the chapter sequence of Isaiah, where it appears only in Isaiah 14, translated as son.

Nun KeyWord Nachal (Heritage)

The symbolic meaning of Nun as Son, Progeny, Perpetuity, and Posterity manifests in the Nun KeyWord (Nachal, Inheritance) which the Lord placed in the seventh Nun-verse of the great alphabetic Psalm 119 (vs. 111):

Thy testimonies have I taken as an heritage for ever: for they are the rejoicing of my heart.

Heir of All Things

This meaning of Nun also manifests with perfect clarity in the Book of Hebrews which opens with the proclamation that the Son is the "heir of all things." This is the meaning of נין (neen, son) as used in Isaiah 14. It both differs from and integrates with the fundamental Beyt KeyWord בן (ben, son) which reveals the nature of God the Son, the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity.

Neen differs from Ben in two ways: 1) it is a very rare word, 2) it emphasises the aspect of inheritence, as opposed to Ben which emphasises the the Son as the Builder of the House. But it is integrated in the analysis of the fundamental word Ben:

בן (Ben, Son) = ב (Bet, House) & נ (Nun, Posterity/Inheritance)

This is discussed in relation to Psalm 2 - the Psalm of the Son.

The word Nun appears in the proper name of Joshua - the great Type of Jesus (indeed, Jesus is the Greek version of the name Joshua) - who led the children of Israel into the Promised land. His name Ben Nun means "son of perpetuity" and it is an acronym of the word Ben itself. All this add deapth to Joshua Ben Nun as an image of the Eternal Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.
