Spoke 4

Romans 4 chain The Sign

And he received the sign of circumcision, a seal of the righteousness of the faith which he had yet being uncircumcised: that he might be the father of all them that believe, though they be not circumcised; that righteousness might be imputed unto them also:

Romans 4:11

This pattern begins on the Fourth Day of Creation, when God gave the fourfold reason for the Sun, Moon, and Stars (cf. Weak and Beggarly Elements):

And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:

The word translated as "signs" is the plural of pic (Auth, S# H0226) which next appears in Genesis 4 when Cain received his infamaous mark after causing the first death. It is closely related to the last letter Tav, which also is translated as "mark" in Ezekiel on Spoke 4 (cf. The Marks of Christ). This all relates to Tav as the Sign and Seal of God - the Cross. Tav is of the same Reduction Class as Dalet because 400 ==> 4 + 0 + 0 = 4 (Dalet). It also manifests in the course of World History with the conversion of Constantine in the Fourth Century through the Sign of the Cross.

The relation between Romans 4 and the idea of the Mark or Sign is very strong, but it is subservient to the great theme of the Righteousness of Faith that connects Genesis to Romans on Spoke 1 of the Bible Wheel (cf. Abraham, the Father of the Faith).

Romans 4 and Galatians

There are numerous KeyLinks between Romans and Galatians (Spoke 4, Cycle 3). I list a few of the more obvous and significant below. I will commment on them as I find time. I recommend testing them with the [verify] link - it gives a Holy Rush to see the correlated passages which also serve to guide us into a deeper understanding of the Holy Word.

These links are particularly intriguing in light of the KeyLinks between Romans 5 and Ephesians (Spoke 5, Cycle 3) and Romans 6 and Philippians (Spoke 6, Cycle 3). The thematic sweep of Romans follows the pattern exemplified in the order of the Canon.
