Mk 1:2a ... As it has been written in Isaiah the prophet, ...

Mark 1:2a Diagram

Verse 2 and 3 should be one verse. God is speaking to Jesus through a literary technique called midrash in which an author borrows words, phrases, and themes from a well known classic and incorporates them in his own work. The image of words coming from an Old Testament Book (as in the previous verse) is sometimes a sign to make a diagram from the gematria value of the words in the text. The OT text is telling the audience that God is sending Elias the prophet down to earth to pave the way for Jesus. (Note: This image is not the one in the book)

Mk 1:2b ... Behold, I send my messenger before your face who will prepare 'the way' for you.

The gematria value of the words in red = 8,467 units

Mark 1:2 Gematria Diagram

This verse paraphrases two Old Testament verses to fulfill the prophecy that God would send an Angel to prepare the way for a "raised Sun of Justice" (meaning Jesus, the Christ).

See, I am sending a messenger before you, to guard you on "the way" and to bring you to the place I have prepared. (Exodus 23:20).

Behold, I am sending my messenger to prepare "the way" before me ... Behold, I will send you Elias the prophet ... (Malachi 3:1, 24)

The Malachi prophecy alluded to in this verse "prepares the way" for the real words of Isaiah in the next verse.

The gematria value of the above words above is 8,467 units, the same number as the perimeter of the red cross that converges on a square enclosing a circle with a circumference of 2220 units, the gematria value of John the Baptist! [actual = 8,479.7, 99.85% accurate] This large "cross" is the "highway" predicted by Isaih 40:3. According to gematria, Elias is John the Immerser. John comes in verse 2 ... Jesus comes later in verse 8. This fulfills the Malachi Prophecy.

Fundamentalists have always had a problem with verses like this. The Greek word ang'-el-os (aggeloV) means "angel" or "messenger" but virtually every bible in the world prefers the word "messenger" because they need John to be a real historical figure. They reason, if Pontious Pilate, the apostles, and all the other people mentioned in the gospels are real people how could John the Baptist be an "angel" ... even if that's what the literal translation says!

Jesus will later say ... “when people rise from the dead they become like angels in the heavens” (Mk 12:22). Jesus will later link John the Baptist with rising from the dead, the prophet Elias, death at the hands of enemies, and being set at zero in the story of the Transfiguration (Mark 9:11-13).

The gospel of Mark seems to be an historical report of a real life Jesus but it contains a number of magical and gnostic themes. The Gnostics believed in reincarnation and this is the first of many gematria diagrams that equate John the Baptist as the reincarnation of the prophet Elias.

Mk 1:3a ... A voice crying out in the wilderness, ...

The "good news" announcer now holds up his Isaiah sign. The Greek text that follows is a sacred geometry riddle that will reveal Jesus (888) and the "highway" created by John the Baptist (2220). (Note: This image is not the one in the book)

Mk 1:3b ... Prepare 'the way' of the Lord! ... make his 'paths' straight!

The gematria value of the words in quotes = 10,514 units

Gematria Diagram for Mark 1:3b

The gematria value of the Greek words that were cried out (10,514 units) is equal to the perimeter of the two red crosses (10,514 units) that form eight "straight paths" that converge on Jesus (888). [actual = 10,506.81, 99.9% accurate] The large cross is the "highway" predicted by Isaih 40:3. The smaller cross, like a "path" or "a way," is "immersed" in the "place" (the white square) created by his "messenger" John the Immerser (2220)! (Note: This image is not the one in the book)
