Leviticus starts with:

Leviticus 1
1And the LORD called unto Moses, and spake unto him out of the tabernacle of the congregation, saying,
The heavenly calling. The same thing in:

Hebrews 3
1Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus;

Not only does Leviticus start with the 'calling' theme, but the phrase 'and [he] called' also gives the Jewish name of the book! God's calling is thus closely associated with Spoke 3. Besides Leviticus and Hebrews 3, we also have Genesis 3 (http://www.biblewheel.com/InnerWheels/Genesis/Genesis03.asp), 1 Samuel 3 (http://www.biblewheel.com/InnerWheels/Matthew/Mat03.asp), Isaiah 40:3, Matthew 3 (http://www.biblewheel.com/InnerWheels/Matthew/Mat03.asp) and Luke 3.

Good points - the "calling" is particularly a function of the Holy Spirit, the Third Person of the Trinity. And I would add that Leviticus and Hebrews are on the Third Diameter of the Wheel:

This is extremely significant because the Book of Hebrews is the "Levitical" book of the NT. It mentions priests and/or sacrifice over 50 times as compared to just a few times in the other NT Epistles. And it is the book that reveals Jesus Christ as our High Priest according to the Order of Melchizedeq (http://www.biblewheel.com/Wheel/Spokes/Nun_Melchizedek.asp):

http://www.biblewheel.com/Wheel/Spokes/Nun_Priest.gif

And Hebrews is the only book of the NT to specifically mention the Levitical priesthood:

Hebrews 7:11 If therefore perfection were by the Levitical priesthood, (for under it the people received the law,) what further need was there that another priest should rise after the order of Melchisedec, and not be called after the order of Aaron?
The study of correlations along the diameters is extremely fruitful.

Thanks for bringing up these points again Richard!

Here's one more connection to Spoke 3 and priesthood. "High priest" debuts in Book 3 and makes a striking appearance in Chapter 3 Verse 1 of several books.

Book 3 - Leviticus 21:10 And he that is the high priest among his brethren, upon whose head the anointing oil was poured, and that is consecrated to put on the garments, shall not uncover his head, nor rend his clothes.

Nehemiah 3:1 Then Eliashib the high priest rose up with his brethren the priests, and they builded the sheep gate; they sanctified it, and set up the doors of it; even unto the tower of Meah they sanctified it, unto the tower of Hananeel.

Zechariah 3:1 And he shewed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the LORD, and Satan standing at his right hand to resist him.

Hebrews 3:1 Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus.

I feel skeptic about the diametric or ATBaSh or ALBaM. The point is that I can easily try to make connections unless the is a solid reason why it should be connected.

I don't understand. It sometimes helpless not to see the atbash and albam connections. The primary meat is found within the Spokes, but it is impossible to miss the connections between Genesis and Revelation, for example, or Daniel and Matthew or Leviticus and Hebrews. And there's a lot more, as usual...

I agree. The primary correlations are found amongst the three books and the Hebrew letter aligned on each Spoke. But the Canon Wheel has bilateral (mirror) symmetry - the left looks like the right - and this is pretty good motivation by itself to think there might be something to Atbash. And as Victor's examples show, it only takes a little investigation to see that something is going on.

As for Albam (books aligned on diameters) there also are many examples that suggest something is going on here. Lev - Heb is the current example, and we have seen a lot on the 1 Kings - Rev connections based on the Throne, Temple, and Ark. It's really pretty impressive to me.

The value of these patterns is determined entirely by the fruit they bear.

Of course the main connections are made on the Spokes, but one must remember without the rolling up of the Bible upon the template of the Hebrew letters, creating the Spokes of the Wheel - there would be no ATBaSh or ALBaM connections to be made. They are solely the fruit that is reaped from the amazing structure of the Bible Wheel.

I don't want to discard these things so long as there's fruit to reap. Maybe the Bible is altogether a Chiastic structure that the First matches the last and so on. The Spokes show the parallelism.

I think even the direction of the letters show that the bible points to Jesus Christ. The Old Testament is written from right to left. The law and the prophets wrote of Jesus Christ before his coming. The New Testament is written from left to right. The apostles witnessed Jesus Christ and wrote of Him. So the Bible is in the form of a menorah or Chiastic structure.

Sometime I want to write about Atbash and Albam and establish their biblical foundation.

Great insight! And the Cross is in the center.

I would want to look into it. Of course there's more to ATBaSh than the diametric opposite. There's the replacing one letter with the other. Chuck Missler had written from a passage of Jeremiah the heart of my enemy if I remember correctly. The use of ATBaSh I think said Babel.


From:http://jhom.com/topics/letters/atbash.html
This ATBaSH device is to be found in the Book of Jeremiah where in 25:26 and 51:41 the word Sheshach is an ATBaSH cryptogram for Babel, and 51:1 Lebkamai is an ATBaSH cryptogram for Kasdim (Chaldea). It appears that the psalmist (or psalmists) of chapters 25 and 34, having omitted the vav, now compensate for this omission by concluding with a peh — which is, of course, a vav in the language of ATBaSH!


Speaking of Jeremiah I posted a thread on chapter 31 (http://www.biblewheel.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1697).

The Atbash in Jeremiah has been common knowledge for a long time. Here is a quote from the wiki article on Atbash (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atbash):

In the Book of Jeremiah, לב קמי Lev Kamai (51:1) is Atbash for כשדים Kasdim (Chaldeans), and ששך Sheshakh (25:26; 51:41) is Atbash for בבל Bavel (Babylon).
The "lev qami" literally means "the heart of them that rise up against me" - which is what you are recalling as "the heart of my enemy."

This along with Isaiah 7's Remaliah in the ALBaM gives Tabeal:


Match the 1st letter with the 12th, the 2nd with the 13th...
אבגדהוזחטיכ
למנסעפצקרשת

רמלא = טבאל and not רמליהו


Isaiah 7:4
וְאָמַרְתָּ אֵלָיו הִשָּׁמֵר וְהַשְׁקֵט אַל־תִּירָא וּלְבָבְךָ אַל־יֵרַךְ מִשְּׁנֵי זַנְבֹות הָאוּדִים הָעֲשֵׁנִים הָאֵלֶּה בָּחֳרִי־אַף רְצִין וַאֲרָם וּבֶן־רְמַלְיָֽהוּ׃

And what is that supposed to mean? A little explanation would be helpful. Also, it would have been good to post the link to the source.

Also, the Hebrew of the third to last word of Psa 115:1 is wrong. It's funny - whoever made the image mistook Chet for Hey, Mem for Samekh, and Resh for Dalet! That's quite a mix up on that one word. It's especially odd since the rest is correct, except the Bet in kavod is mistaken for a Kaph.

Sorry Richard. Actually it's a table of ATBaSh (http://www.borderschess.org/Atbash%20Cipher.htm) from a quick source. But I couldn't find a table for ALBaM so I tried to make one by myself quickly.

If you have a better source post it up. My point of posting this is that I wanted to have charts to prove my statements on Shishak and Remeliah codes.

That's interesting. A table of Atbash is a handy thing to have. But that one starts with Psalm 115:1. Why is that?

The Sheshach atbash is well known. Can we say the same for the Remeliah?

I don't know why Psalm 115 is mentioned. I took it as a quick reference.
The Tabeal's ALBaM is not Remaliah but Remala with an aleph at the end.
