Spoke 14

Romans 14 chain The Fallen Ones

Who art thou that judgest another man's servant? to his own master he standeth or falleth. Yea, he shall be holden up: for God is able to make him stand.

Romans 14 (vs. 4)

Let us not therefore judge one another any more: but judge this rather, that no man put a stumblingblock or an occasion to fall in his brother's way.

Romans 14 (vs. 13)

The theme of the Fallen Ones unites Isaiah 14 (The Fall of Lucifer), Romans 14, and Revelation 14 (The Fall of Babylon). This is one of those very obvious thematic links that has been long recognized in the Jewish Tradition. The Talmud teaches (Berachoth 4b) that the Letter Nun represents the (Nephalim, Fallen Ones). This tradition is also found in the Zohar, and is often repeated in Jewish Homilies. It is deeply integrated with Scripture in many ways. I begin with the Rabinnical explanation for an anomoly found in the Alphabetic Psalm 145, in which the verse corresponding to Nun is missing. The Rabbis teach that the Nun is missing because it alludes to the fall of Israel, but that it is included as a prophecy of the rise of Israel in the next verse, corresponding to Samekh (Psalm 145.14):

The LORD upholdeth (Samekh) all that fall (Nephalim), and raiseth up all those that be bowed down.

Just as Gimel and Dalet are linked together as Giver and Poor, so Nun and Samekh are linked as Fallen and Supporter. It is then with some wonder that we behold exactly the same pattern governing the chapter sequence of Romans! Look at the words quoted at the head of this chapter! They are nearly identitcal to the Samek verse of Psalm 145! Furthermore, Romans 14 speaks specifically about not causing a brother to fall, while Romans 15 opens with words that sound like they could have been written by the Apostle James, under inspiration of the letter Samek (Romans 15.1):

We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves.

How bright is the Light of God! Give glory to Him who upholds the Fallen!
