The Genesis of the Cross (Tav)
And it came to pass after these things, that God did
tempt Abraham, and said unto him, Abraham: and he said, Behold, here I
am. And he said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou
lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a
burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of.
Thy Son, thine Only Son, whom thou Lovest
The supernatural integration of the chapter sequence of Genesis with the Hebrew Alphabet
and the structure of the Christian Canon
is nowhere more evident than here in Genesis 22,
where we find the joint first-occurrence of two
highly significant root words:
- (Ohav, translated as lovest)
- (Yachid, translated as only)
These are cognate with the fundamental Aleph KeyWords
and (Echad, One/Unity)
which are shown to be profoundly integrated with the Shema in the
The debut of these ideas in Genesis on Spoke 1 integrates with their associtation with the letter Aleph.
Likewise, the debut of these words in Chapter 22 of the Inner Alphabetic Sequence of Genesis
integrates with the fundamental Spoke 22 Tav Theme of the Cross.
The divine intent is could not be more clear: the first mention of love in all the Bible is in the context
of the sacrifice of a beloved son, an only son! This is the Gospel, as it is written
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
The pattern of the Genesis 22 prophecy links strongly to
the crucifixion of the Lord Jesus Christ on multiple points:
1) As Christ returned to life three days after His
sacrificial death so Isaac was returned alive to his father three days
after God commanded his sacrificial death.
2) As Christ bore the wood of the Cross so Isaac
bore the wood that was to be used for his sacrifice.
3) When Isaac saw the wood and the fire, he asked "Where is the lamb for
the burnt offering." His father answered "God will provide himself
a lamb for a burnt offering." In Genesis 22, God provided a ram. The
prophecy waited some thousands of years before receiving its ultimate
fulfillment in Jesus Christ when the Lamb of God went to his Cross, to his
Tav and declared, "It is finished!" This all integrates with
the completion of the alphabet in Tav and the ulitmate
Consummation of Creation on Spoke 22.
Truly, Genesis 22 is Genesis of the Cross.
First and Last
If we now take a closer look at the "fine structure" found in the chapter sequence, we find that
the first and last come together here in Genesis 22.
Using modnotation we write:
Genesis 22 = Bible(1, 22) = Bible( 1, 1 ).
Genesis 22 is geometrically isomophic to the point Isaiah 22 where the
Key to the Bible is found:
Isaiah 22 = Bible(23, 22) =
Bible( 2, 1 )
Echoes from the Song of Solomon
As the apple tree among the trees of the wood, so is my
beloved among the sons. I sat down under his shadow with great delight, and his
fruit was sweet to my taste. He brought me to the banqueting house, and his banner over me was love.
(Song of Solomon 2.3)
And Isaac spake unto Abraham his father, and said, My father: and he said, Here
am I, my son. And he said, Behold the fire and the wood: but where
is the lamb for a burnt offering?
Genesis 22 (vs. 7
The Gospel of God's Love is first told in the story of Abraham and Isaac, which is the image of the sacrifice of Christ
prophetically revealed over a thousand years before the wood was layed upon God's own Beloved Son.
God linked this to the Song of Solomon - His great prophetic image of Christ
receiving His Bride - with a KeyLink based on
the simple set (wood, my, son*) [Verify]:
|KeyLink: (Wood, My, Son*)|
|PGenesis( 221 ) PBible( 221 )|
We also have a KeyLink based on the set (wood, son* w/i 1 lov*), which reveals the common and unique link
based on LOVE between Genesis 22 and Song of Solomon:
And he said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into
the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which
I will tell thee of. And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and saddled his ass, and
took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son, and clave the wood for the burnt
offering, and rose up, and went unto the place of which God had told him.
