The Passover (Fourteenth of Nisan)
Moreover Josiah kept a passover unto the LORD in Jerusalem: and they killed
the passover on the fourteenth day of the first month.
2 Chronicles 35:1 (Spoke 14, Cycle 1)
The supernatral integration of the Passover with the geometric structure of Scripture is astounding to behold.
The Lord God Almighty declared the fourteenth day of the first month to be the Passover of the
Lord. The graph below shows the distribution of the word "passover" througthout Scripture. It is
significantly maximized on the fourteenth Spoke of the first Cycle:
The integration between the Passover and its date (the Number 14) is extensive. It begins in
14, which contains the first occurrence of the Number 14 in all the Bible.
The integration continues
with the debut of both the word "Hebrew" and "Melchizadek," the Priest of the Most High God who brought
forth Bread and Wine (the Eucharist) which is the Christian revelation of the true meaning
of the Passover! Note also that the name of the first month, ניסן (Nisan), is a Nun KeyWord. A traditional
Jewish understanding of the word Nisan and its relation to the letters Nun and Samekh can be
found in Josh Zweiback's
article The True Miracle of Passover .
Explicit reference to the Passover appears in two books on Cycle 3, 1 Corinthians (Spoke 2)
and Hebrews (Spoke 14). These are represented by the small green bars in the graph above.
The perfection of placement of these references is astounding. These numbers correspond to
the book in which the Passover was
introduced (Exodus, Spoke 2) and the book in which the word Passover is maximized in
the Bible (Spoke 14, 2 Chronicles), which corresponds, of course, to the date it was celebrated! And beyond this,
the Book of 2 Chronicles also contains the unique record of the Passover celebrated by the faithful King Hezekiah, which
itself selected by an Alphabetic KeyLink
as discussed in Freewill Offerings.
Yet there is still more. The verse from Hebrews declares the things Moses did in his pilgramage of
Faith. We read:
Through faith he kept the passover, and the sprinkling of blood,
lest he that destroyed the firstborn should touch them.
Hebrews 11:28 (Spoke 14, Cycle 3)
Nearly identical language is found in 2 Chronicles 33:11:
And they killed the
passover, and the priests sprinkled the blood from their hands, and the Levites
2 Chronicles 33:11 (Spoke 14, Cycle 1)
Searching all seven versions for the set (passover, sprinkl*, blood) [Verify] yields only these
two verses. We have the KeyLink:
|KeyLink: The Passover and the Sprinkling of Blood|
Now the really astounding fact is that the one other occurrence of "passover" on Cycle 3 in
1 Corinthians (spoke 2) is itself linked to Exodus (Spoke 2) with its own KeyLink, as discussed in the
article Christ our Passover. Endless wonder!
