Numbers are not merely figures but threads weaving a story of redemption
The below image of the tapestry (with caption) is from a major article that packs a punch on its own
The Redemption Tapestry’s details could unfold into a book, evidently crafted by an intelligent force. But which intelligence? Scholars across ages, perhaps in Babylonian captivity 2500 years ago, or divine influence exceeding human skill? Doubters are invited to verify each fact and then, through careful contemplation, judge the true source of this intricate work.
The patterns in the caption represent just half the narrative, which is fully realized when each date is mirrored with an “AD” counterpart—for instance, “4114 BC” for Creation aligns with AD 4114, and 1406 BC corresponds with AD 1406. This mirroring unveils the tapestry’s rich symmetrical design and, like a fractal, merges flawlessly with the “Long Chronology” (“14466 BC” to AD 1406), using the “Key of 23.”
Curiously, “1/137” holds scientific weight, mirroring facets of Creation.
Ishmael, Levi, and Amram each died at 137 years, reflecting the seven days of Creation plus Seth’s birth after 130 years. At Sarah’s death, Abraham was 137. The New Testament and Septuagint have two Cainans, with a combined age of 1370 years, with their births 1370 (-2) apart. Cainan1 lived 130×7 years and fathered a son at 70; Cainan2 fathered at 130. Caianan2 carried on in the sin of the angels that rebelled “in the days of Jarod” (Bk. Jub., Bk Enoch).
Adam was 460 years old when Jarod was born (see “Key of 23“), paralleling Cainan2, born 460 years after Cainan1 died. “460 years” later, Cainan2 died—the same year Abraham left Babylon for Canaan. The Israelites entered Canaan half-1370 years later, in 1406 BC. Still, another half-1370 years later, in 722/721 BC, the Northern Kingdom of Israel, like the angels who sinned, fell into exile—1370 from when Abraham left Babylon to go to Canaan that coincided with Cainan and Terah’s death!
Here is a mystery: Canaan’s 1370 was divided in half, as was Cainan1&2, because Noah cursed Canaan, Gen 9:25. On the cross, Christ, in Canaan, as Cainan—unfallen Cainan1 became fallen Cainan2 that we might become Cainan1, and so the Lamb as 70 & 130, slain before the world, ever bears his mark as 137. This wordplay casts a shadow: Abraham had a brother named “Harran.” Harran died in Babylon and did not enter the land of Haran. Their father, Terah, died in Haran and did not enter Canaan. Thus, Abraham left Harran in Babylon and Terah in Haran to go to Canaan in the year Cainan2 died, Genesis 11:27-32. Moreover, Ham, a son of Shem, had sons—Canaan and Egypt.
Noah cursed Canaan at his birth, one year after the Flood—4831 BC in the Long Chronology. From the curse to Abraham’s entry into Canaan is 1370+1370 years. The inclusion of Cainan2 (130+330=460) adjusts Canaan’s curse back 460 years to 5291/5289 BC, and the Reg. Chron. to 3919 BC for Cainan1. This aligns 1370 years to Cainan1 and twice that to Cainan2, merging “Long” and regular chronologies for Cainan1 by 7800 years (130×60, with ±130×7) & Cainan2 by 2300 (460×5, with ±460), Dan. 8:13-14, but with LXX-215 =1260+1260, Rev. 11-12, & 1150 between Cainans.
Recall the connection to Jared when Adam was 460. In the Long Chronology, the span from Jarod to Cainan2 is 4600, and 1150×3 more years passed before entering Canaan (9456-4856-1406 BC, for a total of 7×1150).
As for the Flood date of 5291/4831 BC, that’s 23/21×230 to Christ (Key of 23) and 4900 to AD 70 (the fall of Jerusalem, Dan. 9). Then there’s the BC/AD mirror! See Long Chronology Chart and Regular Chart for reference.
Is it possible that the complex patterns depicted above, symbolized by the Rubik’s Cube, were the work of scholarly collectives during the Babylonian Exile?
At first glance, one might consider these designs products of human ingenuity. Yet, upon closer examination and witnessing the escalating complexity—illustrated in the visual below—it becomes clear that the sophistication involved surpasses human ability.
After more than thirty years of rigorous study and numerous articles, I assert confidently that the insights presented here merely skim the surface of an immense, intricately interlocked puzzle.
