called his gematria puzzles "mysteries," John calls them
"signs." Johns version (Jn 6:1-14) of feeding the
five thousand, which he calls a "sign," immediately followed
by the miracle of walking on water repeats almost every detail of
Marks version of these two miracles. According to John, Jesus
knew the crowd would try to seize him and make him a king, so he went
alone to the mountain. When evening came, his disciples went down
to the sea, got in a boat, and departed for Capernaum. It was then
dark and the sea was roused because of a great wind. Having rowed
about twenty-five or thirty stadia, they saw Jesus walking on the
sea coming near the boat. They were frightened, but he said to them,
"I am, do not fear." According to John, they took him into
the boat just as it arrived at the shore. This detail contradicts
Mark and Matthew who both said Jesus got in the boat in the middle
of the sea. The only witnesses to this new "sign" were the
and Matthews gematria "mysteries" of how Jesus walked
on water were just too good for John to resist. Johns version
assumed one already knew the initial setup of the sea, mountain, and
Jesus from Mark and Matthew. The solution to Johns version comes
mainly from the technique of drawing instructions.
words "Have courage, I am, dont fear" are identical
in Mark and Matthew but John drops one of the words
used in Mark and Matthew. The position of the circle formed by the words
of Jesus in Johns version gives a startling confirmation of
why John slightly altered the words of what Jesus said. John also didnt
repeat the saying about taking a mountain and putting it in the sea.
He probably thought it was too risky to repeat such an important geometry
and John were written five to twenty years after Matthew and Mark
according to the opinion of todays experts. The early orthodox church
fathers and their formerly pagan Christian converts were probably
ignorant of the gematria mysteries contained in the first two gospels.
If the Church fathers did know, they may have wanted to suppress
it anyway because the critics of Christianity could have used the
gematria solutions of the miracles to discredit the new religion.
If the miracles were just crafty geometric allegories, it might follow
that all the Churchs promises of salvation and resurrection
were also allegorical. This may have been the reason Luke ignored
the story of how Jesus walked on water. To solve Johns "sign,"
draw the boat in the middle of the sea and just follow the drawing
instructions given in the imagery of the verses.
