The Bible Wheel is a simple 2D representation of the traditional 66 book
Christian canon that reveals a host of highly integrated and theologically
profound insights into the Bible.
One of the most common arguments against the Bible Wheel by folks steeped in
modern biblical scholarship is that the order of the 66 book Christian Canon
is arbitrary, void of theological significance, and almost certainly not
inspired of God.
I have many answers to such objections that I would be delighted to discuss
with anyone interested, but that is not the point of this post.
The point of this post is that there is another feature of Scripture that is
also generally understood to be arbitrary, void of theological significance,
and almost certainly not inspired of God, namely, the division of Scripture
into chapter and verse.
The Isaiah-Bible Correlation brings together these two apparently arbitrary
features and reveals their tight integration. The book of Isaiah as an image
of the Bible within the Bible. In large, the pattern is too obvious to miss.
It is even mentioned in the introduction to Isaiah in the New King James
Bible which says:
Isaiah is like a miniature Bible. The first thirty-nine chapters (like the
thirty-nine books of the Old Testament) are filled with judgment upon
immoral idolatrous men. Judah has sinned; the surrounding nations have
sinned; the whole earth has sinned. Judgment must come, for God cannot allow
such blatant sin to go unpunished forever. But the final twenty-seven
chapters (like the twenty-seven chapters of the New Testament) declare a
message of hope. The Messiah is coming as a Savior and a Sovereign to bear a
cross and to wear a crown.
The evidence is extremely compelling. Though there are some chapters of
Isaiah that are not obviously linked to the content of the corresponding
book of the Bible, the *majority* of chapters do reveal a significant
correlation. In many cases, there are *unique* words or phrases found ONLY
in a given chapter of Isaiah and its corresponding book of the Bible. I have
hundreds of such links listed on my site:
The Isaiah - Bible Correlation provides a completely *independent* witness
to the divine design of the order of the Canon, which is the basis of the
And like the Wheel itself, the Isaiah - Bible Correlation is truly
beautiful, being an image of the Bible embedded within the Bible.
