Spoke 22 - Tav - Revelation: The Capstone Book

And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.

Revelation 21:5f (Spoke 22, Cycle 3)

Revelation is the ultimate Book of Consummation. It simultaneously closes the thematic and geometric circles of the Bible even as it seals the whole with a Sevenfold Seal of Perfection (see The Bible Sealed with Seven Seals, BW book pg 50). But as it closes, so it opens in the sense indicated by its name Apocalupsis denoting an unveiling, uncovering, or revelation. Opening and closing, beginning and ending are united in the Apocalypse where God declares "It is done" even as His previous proclamation "Behold, I make all things new" still rings in the Throne Room of heaven. Everything in the Last Book centers on its first words, THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST. He is the true purpose and central character of the all Scripture, and so it is with absolute perfection of design that all Scripture closes with the opening of heaven and the revelation of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords (Rev 19:16). Such is the Wisdom of God.

Revelation is the supreme Book of Signs and Symbols. Its 404 verses contain at least 400 allusions to elements drawn from the first sixty-five Books of the Bible. W. Graham Scroggie, in his excellent synopsis of the whole Bible, The Unfolding Drama of Redemption This link takes you off the Bible Wheel site and opens a new window, filled six pages of fine print listing 280 references to the events, persons, types, symbols, and metaphors found in just the Thirty-Nine Books of the Old Testament. The table gives a tiny sample from Cycle 1, space prohibits listing them all. Revelation is truly a Divine symphony of Biblical symbols. Its melody is the Song of the Beloved, the Lord Jesus Christ. A thousand harmonics ring from its every note, evoking memories of all that God has taught us along the long, long road of the history of the world. It is a true Paradise for all who love to meditate in the Holy Word, unifying everything revealed in the Sixty-Six Books. It is the ultimate demonstration of the multifaceted Wisdom of God; an inexhaustible treasure house that unlocks the true vision of the whole Bible as the revelation of the Lord of History . By Divine design, it suggests worlds within worlds of manifold interpretations, which is how God evokes a response from the highest faculties of our souls. Nothing less would suffice for the Vision from Eternity held within its finite pages.

The true wonder of the Bible Wheel is that almost all of its elements have been both recognized and commented on by countless scholars over the span of centuries. For example, I could not have written a more precise description of the Apocalypse than this by Simon Kistemaker in the Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society This link takes you off the Bible Wheel site and opens a new window:

The Revelation of John is the capstone of Scripture. It is a concise summary of the history of redemption that points to the consummation of time. In total it has some 278 allusions to the OT. The teachings of this book reveal a glorious unity, a progression of thought, and perfect agreement with the entire Bible. When the last book of the NT was composed, nothing could be added to God's written revelation. His written word has been completed in the sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments.

Just as the Franciscan tradition sees the Last Letter Tav as representing the "fulfillment of the entire revealed Word of God" (BW book pg 38), so now we see the literal fulfillment of the entire revealed Word of God in the Last Book and its full thematic and geometric integration with the Last Hebrew Letter! Furthermore, scholars throughout the ages have noticed the profound thematic and theological integration of Revelation with the Song of Songs, an association that is amplified beyond all measure in the geometric alignment of these two Books with each other and the final Hebrew Letter! This is the Work of God. This is the revelation of the Bible Wheel.
