Spoke 6 - Vav

Joshua, Hosea, Philippians


For Moses had given the inheritance of two tribes and an half tribe on the other side Jordan: but unto the Levites he gave none inheritance among them. For the children of Joseph were two tribes, Manasseh and Ephraim: therefore they gave no part unto the Levites in the land, save cities to dwell in, with their suburbs for their cattle and for their substance.

Joshua 14:3ff (Spoke 6, Cycle 1)

Because Ephraim hath made many altars to sin, altars shall be unto him to sin. I have written to him the great things of my law, but they were counted as a strange thing.

Hosea 8:11f (Spoke 6, Cycle 2)

The names of the first two books on Spoke 6 - Joshua and Hosea - are closely related. In fact, Hoshea is the original name of Joshua Ben Nun:

And Moses came and spake all the words of this song in the ears of the people, he, and Hoshea the son of Nun.

Deauteronomy 32:44

The alternate spelling Hosea/Hoshea is due to the choice of the translator and does not reflect any difference in the underlying Hebrew.

The books of Joshua and Hosea are also deeply integrated upon the name of Ephraim. The graph below shows the distribution of the name Ephraim on the Bible Wheel:

The abosolute maximum appears in the 37 hits in Hosea. The cc between Cycle 1 and Cycle 2 is .40. Though this is not as astounding as many of the coeeficients seen in this study, it is well above the value that would be expected by chance (i.e. near zero).

The name Ephraim then plays a very significant role in the theme of 0, and its connection to the Book of Hosea.
