The Pool of Siloam
I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh,
when no man can work. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world. When he had
thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and he anointed the eyes
of the blind man with the clay, And said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which
is by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing.
John 9:4ff (Spoke 21, Cycle 2)
The Shin KeyWord (Shelach, Send) sets the basis of
revelation of Christ in the Gospel of John. It is the etymological
root of "Siloam", as explained in the verse above. The profound relation between Shelach,
Spoke 21 and the Gospel of John is amplified by careful placement of
this miracle and its associated explanation of Siloam as Sent here in John's Gospel and
The Shin KeyWord
(Shelach, Send) also integrates with Christ's
oblique reference to God the Father as "him who sent me" or "the one who sent me" which
is characteristic of John's Gospel. For example, in John 13.18-19 we read (note also the
integration with the divine title "I AM" which will be discussed below):
Now I tell you before it come, that, when it is come to pass, ye may believe that
I am he. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that receiveth whomsoever
I send receiveth me; and he that receiveth me
receiveth him that sent me.
The dominance of the phrase "sent me" in the 43rd Book is evident from
the graph below:
All of this integrates in the most spectacular way with another of the great themes of Spoke 21, the
divine title "I AM" which characterizes John's Gospel as
discussed in The Eternal I AM.
When God revealed this name to Moses
And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel,
and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me
unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them?
And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the
children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.
God himself associated these two fundamental Spoke
21 themes - "I AM" and "Sent" - nearly two thousand
years before the New Testament was even written! This is yet another example of the
how the geometric structure
of the Bible coheres with the message found in the plain text of the Holy Bible!
Of course, all of
this further integrates with the theme based on the Spoke 21 KeyWord
(Shem, Name) as discussed in
Called By Name where some of
the divine links between John's Gospel and Isaiah 43 on the
Inner Wheel of Isaiah are displayed.
The Shin KeyWord שלח
(Shelach, Send) also appears in Psalm 43 (vs. 3):
O send out thy light and thy truth: let them lead me; let them bring me unto thy
holy hill, and to thy tabernacles.
This verse is further connected to the Gospel of John with a very simple and beautiful KeyLink.
Searching the entire KJV for all verses that contain the two words (light, truth) [Verify]
yields but one verse other than Psalm 43:3. In John 3.21 we read the words of Jesus:
But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made
manifest, that they are wrought in God.
We have therefore a first order projective KeyLink between Psalm(43,3) and Bible(43,3):
|KeyLink: Light and Truth|
|PPsalms( 43, 3 ) PBible( 43, 3 )|
Consider what this means! The fundamental Shin KeyWord Shelach appears in Psalm 43 which is
uniquely linked by "light and truth" to Book 43 of the Bible! Divine integration! Glory to
God who has given such a lamp for our feet!
We now have multiple converging lines that integrate the Gospel of John, the Letter Shin, and Spoke 21 of
the bwheel, the
Inner Wheel of Isaiah, and the
Inner Alphabetic Cycle of the Psalms! And yet for all
this we have but the merest introduction to the wonders God has given us on Spoke 21!
Verily, verily, I say unto you, there is no end to
the glory of the Light and Truth God has sent forth in His Holy Word!
