The Sacred Geometry
The Fourth Sign Miracle happened somewhere beyond the Sea of Galilee of Tiberias. A great crowd followed Jesus because of the signs he was doing on the ill ones. He went up into a mountain with his disciples. The Passover of the Jews was near. He said to Philip, "Where can we buy bread for the crowd to eat? Philip said, "loaves costing 200 denarii are not enough to feed them. Andrew said, "Here is a boy with 5 loaves and 2 little fish." Jesus said, "Make the 5000 men recline on the grass." Giving thanks, the bread and fish were distributed to the crowd till they were filled. The leftovers filled 12 baskets. The men said, "this one is truly the prophet coming into the world." Knowing they wanted to seize him and make him a king, Jesus departed into the mountain alone.
This is a wonderful geometry riddle constructed from a few signs made from some key gematria words and five numbers. Virtually every verse is a drawing instruction on how to fit the loaves and fish into the size of the crowd and then the fragments into the baskets. The last diagram puts Jesus back into the mountain where he started, ready for his 5th sign miracle.
