Rosetta Stone [British Museum This link takes you off the Bible Wheel site and opens a new window]

The Kingdom of Egypt is referenced by name over seven hundred times in the Bible. It played an essential role in the history of Israel. Historians, archeologists, and Biblical scholars were therefore deeply frustrated by their inablity to read the Egyptian hieroglyphs.

This all changed in the year 1799 with the discovery of the Rosetta Stone in el-Rashid (Rosetta), Egypt. The stone has an inscription describing a decree from the general council of Egyptian priests issued during the reign of Ptolemy V in 196 BC. It is written in three scripts (Egyptian Hieroglyphics, Egyption Demotic, and Greek) and two languages (Egyptian and Greek). By comparing these three parallel passages, scholars were able, for the first time in modern history, to interpret the Egyptian hieroglyphics. Simon Singh wrote a lucid review of this discovery on his site This link takes you off the Bible Wheel site and opens a new window and also in a related article he produced for the BBC This link takes you off the Bible Wheel site and opens a new window. High-resolution images of the three scripts used on the stone can be viewed on this page This link takes you off the Bible Wheel site and opens a new window from the Biblical Graduate School of Theology. Here is an except from the article on Singh's site:

The most famous, and arguably the most romantic, of all decipherments was the cracking of Egyptian hieroglyphics. For centuries, hieroglyphics remained a mystery, and hence archaeologists could merely speculate about their meaning. However, as a result of a classic piece of codebreaking, the hieroglyphs were eventually deciphered, and ever since archaeologists have been able to read first-hand accounts of the history, culture, and beliefs of the ancient Egyptians. The decipherment of hieroglyphics has bridged the millennia between ourselves and the civilisation of the pharaohs.

The term "Rosetta Stone" has therefore became a common metaphor for any dicsovery that provides the key to understanding a complex set of data, such as the genetic code (DNA) which has been called The Rosetta Stone of Life This link takes you off the Bible Wheel site and opens a new window.

The Bible Wheel is very much like the Rosetta Stone in both the metaphorical and the literal senses. Just as the stone unlocked the mystery of Egyptian hieroglyphs by revealing correlated script in three parallel passages, so the Bible Wheel unlocks a host of profound theological and hermeneutical insights by revealing twenty-two sets of three books that are correlated with each other and with a Letter of the Hebrew Alphabet. There is no limit to its fruitfulness. Below is a review of a few of the primary areas of biblical research impacted by the revelation of the Bible Wheel. I will add linked articles explaining each section as I find time.

  • The Divine Unity of the Holy Bible
    This is the most obvious implication of the revelation of the Bible Wheel. That's why I chose it for the subtitle of the Bible Wheel book.
  • The Canon Debate: Which Books belong in the Bible?
    Christians have argued amongst themeselves for centuries about how to establish the Biblical canon. The revelation of the Bible Wheel settles this issue once and for all. It also has a huge impact on all other aspects of canonical studies. Indeed, it transforms the subject altogether. For example, people often ask why Esther is in the Bible, since it does not explicitly mention God or the Lord even once in its entirety. This is due entirely to Divine Design. God designed the Book of Esther to reveal the doctrine known in Judaism as Hester Panim (The Hidden Face) of God. In Christian parlance, it relates to the doctrine of Divine Providence. Here are two articles that show the power of the Bible Wheel in action:
  • Solution of the Synoptic Problem
    Huge volumes of literature has been published relating to this question. The Bible Wheel opens the door to an insight never before suspected. The variations seen in the parallel verses are based on KeyWords that God placed in the Alphabetic Verses. The pattern is consistent through all three synoptic Gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke:
  • Kings-Chronicles Parallel Verses Resolved
    The resolution of these parallel verses follows exactly the same pattern as seen in the solution of the Synoptic Problem. It is explained in the context of Spoke 14:
  • Proper Hermeneutical approach to the Song of Songs and Revelation
    The alignment of these two books on Spoke 22 - the last Spoke - reveals how the geometry of the Holy Word affects our hermeneutical approach. It reinforces the proper and traditional Christian interpretation of these books which were long seen as complementary visions of the Consummation of God's Plan of the Ages (reproduced from Chapter 5 of the Bible Wheel book).
