    A Symmetrical Pattern in Jewish History

    Here I wish to outline a rather odd pattern that has emerged, or rather has become apparent. All dates are based on the Ussher chronology.

    The first inkling of a pattern was suggested by the parallel between the gentile captivity, that began with the Babylonian conquest of Jerusalem, and the Egyptian captivity. What is so curious is that both captivities are said to have lasted 430 years. Hmmmm, such a curious repetition of history seems to indicate that God had set the duration for both events - deliberately - for some purpose. The prophet Ezekiel divided the period gentile captivity into two periods, vis 40 + 390 years.

    Now, the opposite of captivity is kingdom, and what is truely remarkable is that the Kingdom of Israel (the time during which Israel had a king) was 40 + 40 + 40 + 390 years.
    Infact, the period of Israels monarchy divides neatly into two sub periods - the period of united kingdom, and the period of divided kingdom. It so happens that the divided kingdom lasted 390 years, and the united kingdom lasted 120 years under three successive monarchs - each reigning 40 years!!

    Consider this for a moment - the Kingdoms of the Gentiles lasted 390 + 40 years according to Ezekiel.
    The Kingdom of Israel lasted 390 + 40 + 40 + 40 yrs.

    It seems almost certain that these two durations were meant to parallel one another. Part of the meaning of this is that God gave equal time to Jew and Gentile. Fairness prevailed. But there is undoutedly a deeper meaning.

    430 yrs - Egyptian Captivity
    395 yrs - Wilderness and Judges
    40 yrs - Saul
    40 yrs - David
    40 yrs - Solomon
    390 yrs - Divided Kingdom
    430 yrs - Gentile Captivity


    The whole pattern centers on two numbers 40 + 390

    • The Bible tells us that the Egyptian Captivity lasted 430 years.
    • Ezekiel foretold that the Times of the Gentiles would be a time of captivity that would also last 430 years. He divided this period into two parts, 390 + 40 years.
    • It therefore comes as quite a surprise to discover that the period of Israelite Monarchy prior to the Gentile Captivity divides naturally into 40 + 40 + 40 + 390 years. During the reigns of Saul (40 yrs), David (40 yrs) and Solomon (40 yrs) the Kingdom of Israel was united. However, after Solomon the Kingdom of Israel became divided into a Northern Kingdom (consisting of 10 tribes), and a Southern Kingdom (consisting of 2 tribes – Benjamin and Judah). The divided kingdom lasted 390 years – from it’s beginning down to it’s last monarch.
    • To complete this pattern, we find that the period of the Judges (including the wandering in the Wilderness) comes to 395 years – an approximation to 390.



    A basic pattern can be seen. The Egyptian Captivity lasted 430 years. This was followed by the period of the Judges lasting 395 years. However, Samuel was the last judge of Israel, during which time Saul was king, so the period of the judges comes to 395 + 40 years.

    Then there is the reign of King David lasting 40 years.

    After the reign of King David, Solomon became King and reigned 40 years. It was during Solomon's reign that Israel began to practice idolatry. Consequently the kingdom became divided, and remained so for 390 years, until the Gentile Captivity.

    Finally, the gentile captivity itself, would last 430 years, according to Ezekiel.

    Oddly enough, the end of the 430 years coincides with the victory of the Maccabees over the Greeks in 165 B.C resulting in Jewish independence for the first time in 430 years ! This independence was to last just over 100 years until the Romans came to occupy Judea.



    Numerical Observations

    • The pattern is symmetrical
    • The pattern is built around 430. And 43 is the main factor in Elohim (2 x 43)
    • The period of united Kingdom = 430 – 310. And 31 is the main factor in God (31)
    • The twelve tribes were united for 120 years. And 12 relates to the twelve tribes.
    • The centre of the pattern is the reign of King David.



    We have seen how Israel occilated between Captivity and Kingdom. During captivity they were subject to others, whilst during periods of kingdom they sought to subjugate others. Perhaps both the supremacy of kingdom and the humiliation of slavery are equally wrong. Jesus came with a third alternative that might allow us to escape from this occilation - a spiritual kingdom based on true inner freedom. Perhaps the only way to escape the violent occilation between supremacy and slavery is to choose the spiritual kingdom?

    This is very good Craig! And very simple. It is hard to date the period of the judges and of the divided kingdom, but the approximation suffices for the purposes of identification of the pattern, and even this difficulty is reflected in that it appears in the same pair of periods.

    The pattern reiterates the 3 pairs + 1 central unpaired element structure that we find so often in Scripture, like in the design of the Menorah, the Seven Days of Creation, the gates in Temple of Ezekiel and the Seven Canonical Divisions of the Bible.

    This 3 + 1 structure reflects the organization of the Gospels (Synoptics + John) and this fourfoldness is delineated in Scripture in Ezekiel on Spoke 4 of the Bible Wheel, when he recieves the prophecy concerning the 390 + 40 years.

    David the King appropriately stands in the center.

    There's a lot more that could be said. But I don't understand your use of gematria in this context, specifically the connection to Elohim/El (2*43, 31). I don't see any natural link to the name of God here.

    Thanks very much Victor, for this observation about the 3 + 1 structure in Scripture.

    Hi Craig,

    Indeed! This pattern runs everywhere in Scripture. I'll post at your new thread The Menorah Pattern in Jewish History when I get a chance.

    Yes thanks another confirmation.
    Folks on this site are keying in on the same clues as others.

    Jung called the 3+1 the quinta essentia which is equal to the Philosopher's Stone.

    I have been gathering up a bunch of 3+1 archetypes from different disciplines to help me understand the concept better...how to go from CARD X of the Tarot to Feynman’s hypothesis that matter comes in all 4 forms to Lorentz Transformations to Sylvester Jim Gates musings about Adinkras.

    Yeah, the 3 + 1 pattern is found in many places and seems very significant.

    Can you remind me why you wrote the blue numbers 11, 8, 5 and 2 over the four cherubim on the Tarot card?

    • Remember why we debate. We have nothing to lose but the errors we hold. Who but a stubborn fool would hold to errors once they have been exposed?

    The oldest swastika on record is a 3 + 1 configuration.
    Do you see it?
    The top left swirl looks like it has been rotated 90 degrees relative to the other three. Best to imagine the spirals as a number 5, then you can see it.

    IF you believe that the zodiac plays a role in trying to figure out the mysteries of life, those numbers are significant.

    It is based on Aries beginning at 0 degrees on a 360 degree bIbLE Wheel.
    It is a position established long ago, the order of the zodiac wheel.

    Aries 1, Taurus 2, Gemini 3, Cancer 4, .... Aquarius 11, Pisces 12,

    Thus the numbers 2, 5, 8, 11, and the Bull, the Lion, the Eagle, and the Man match up with the 4 Evangelists.
    http://at37.wordpress.com/2012/02/29...on-and-the-ox/

    What I offer is such a simple course in miracles, but grown-ups gotta let go and be like a child again.
    It is true.
    I can prove it Richard...my journey began....



    ...just by innocently joining some dots one day, counting backwards as in precession of the equinoxes (starting in the age of Taurus), after falling into this hole my life took a turn for the better, before I knew it I had put myself on the same page as Aleister Crowley's musings and Richard Feynman, I appear to be right in the middle.



    Aleister Crowley's serpent biting its tail and Solomon's Knot which has at it's heART the Hakenkreuz or swastika...
    Do you see the 4 hooks?
    But the most important thing is to notice the 'offset' cross at the center, like we see in St. Brigid's cross next to it.
    Because that is the SEED pattern!
    http://at37.wordpress.com/2012/02/23...astikas-seeds/



    SEED pattern was used as a solution for the Pythagorean theorem in China perhaps before the Pi guy was even alive?

    And what application do we have for Solomon's Knots at the MOLECULAR level?
    Chemists Make Molecular Rings in Shape of King Solomon's Knot
    http://www.physorg.com/news87669806.html

    Some folks discuss the two primary forces as being PUSH and PULL.
    Would a HOOK be used if PULLING?

    Richard I made a claim a few years ago that the big AHA, the twist at the end of the tale is that we find out that the swastika is ONE of the best mediators we have between science and religion.
    I shall continue to wait for science to catch up, and religions to remember.
    You heard it here first...after String Theory...there will be a KNOT Theory.

    I have 12,000+ years of good luck on my side, and god heals (raphael) our DNA using the swastika too.

    Richard IF the swastika has geometric advantages over other shapes, what role does it play in the transcription of DNA which in fact employs geometry when replicating.
    Also remember those 'light mills' are used in the manipulation, can be used to unwind the helix of our DNA too!

    From Pythagoras to windmills, to solar panels, to light mills, to how a vortex flows, to the double helix of our DNA, the swastika is here to stay in a big way.
    No wonder the Polynesians called the navigation tool 'the mattang' a survival tool bequeathed to them by their ancestors unknown.



    The Templar cross within the Sator Square is made by joining the letters A-E-O-N four times.
    4 AEONS or 4 AGES

    This could be important to know:
    Geometrically, the swastika can be regarded as an irregular icosagon or 20-sided polygon. The arms are of varying width and are often rectilinear (but need not be). Only in modern use are the exact proportions considered important: for example, the proportions of the Nazi swastika were based on a 5x5 grid.

    5x5 Rotas Sator Square?

    hello craig,
    you many find this interesting...

    god vs. man?
    symmetry vs. asymmetry

    ancient religious scripture vs. NOBEL prize in 2008 for asymmetry?
    http://kachina2012.wordpress.com/200...ght-hand-path/

    Is symmetry vs. asymmetry a key to helping unlock the mysteries?

    YES
    IMHO

    Thankyou for the link

    Thankyou for the link Raphael,

    Nature is full of symmetry. So it is interesting that the history of Israel seems approximately symmetrical in it's outline.

    The Israelites endured the captivity in Egypt for 430 years until the Exodus, and then we are told in Ezekiel that the gentile captivity was also to last 430 years. Here is an instance of symmetry.

    That the reign of Israels divided kingdom should have endured for 390 years prior to the gentile captivity also arouses surprise and interest, since Ezekiel had divided the gentile captivity into two periods of 390 years and 40 years respectively. This coincidence is confirmed when we learn Solomon, David and Saul each reigned 40 years prior to the 390 years.

    Here we see a symmetrical balance between Israel's kingdom and the gentile kindgoms. Such symmetry is a symbol for balance and fairness - impartiality - the cornerstone of justice.

    Of course the symmetry does not end here.

    Further symmetries are apparent. I would like to refer you to my book - "The Sign of the Son of Man" where I outline the most beautiful and remarkable symmetries. You can find it here. http://www.craigdemo.co.uk/craig.htm

    Over the last 27 years that I have studied these matters, my enthusiasm is hardly diminished, and my respect for the Scriptures has been constantly nourished by these extraordinary patterns.

    God speaks through numbers, and I dare to suggest that these patterns are not the invention of human minds but evidence of God's hand in the shaping of human history.

    I hope you can let others know about these things, since the world needs to know, and it is certain that many people are unaware.

    Regards

    Craig

    Actually nature is full of asymmetry.
    I googled nature's golden spiral...
    8 million returns here is the page:
    http://images.google.ca/images?hl=en...pell=1&start=0



    The images that appear are those of the phi / fibonacci golden spiral.
    The significance of phi is considered by many to be greater than that of pi and the famous Greek philosopher Plato, thought it to be "the key to the physics of the cosmos"
    .
    Asymmetry seems to be the default mechanism on the prison planet due to beta decay or PT symmetry violation.

    As I mentioned in 2008 Nobel finally got around to awarding a prize to three physicists for proving matter and anti-matter are asymmetric.

    The history seems symmetrical because we equate divinity with symmetry.
    The human body is not symmetrical, the earth is not symmetrical, the asymmetrical heliosphere suggests our solar system is NOT symmetrical.

    Framing the narrative as a symmetry if you are discussing GOD, or a universal balance makes sense.
    BUT the FACT is ... on the prison planet ... ASYMMETRY rules the domain down here.
    And asymmetry can be defined as a breakdown of symmetry.

    My theory is the fall of man, his fall from grace, is just that.
    ASYMMETRY is the scientific equivalent of the fall of man.
    The beginning of the end.
    Being ejected from the perfect world, the garden of eden.
