"Mary, Jael & the Magnificats"


Readers -

in Judges 4 we read that Jael delivers to Sisera a mortal head wound. My other post about Sisera shows the (swift) connection to Revelation 13 and both the mark (666) and the head wound of the 'beast', plus my conjecture regarding that.

This is in Judges 4:21
"Then Jael Heber's wife took a nail of the tent, and took an hammer in her hand, and went softly unto him, and smote the nail into his temples, and fastened it into the ground: for he was fast asleep and weary. So he died."

This verse has a total verse gematria value of ...

8895

In Judges 5:24 we read a verse of adulation about Jael because of this brave act -

"Blessed above women shall Jael the wife of Heber the Kenite be, blessed shall she be above women in the tent."

This sounded remarkably like the Magnificat of Mary found in the Gospel of Luke Chapter 1:46-55 to me.

plugging in the 8895 value into Richard McGough's Bible Wheel site, to see what other verses (if any) have a total verse gematria of 8895, we find that there are four verses, and the first one is Judges 4:21 quoted above, and the second verse is ...

Luke 1:48
"For he hath regarded the low estate of his handmaiden: for, behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed."

perfect! Glory to God.

A verse right out of the Magnificat of Mary, as anticipated due to the similar wording, but actually found due to a number, 8895.

This means there is some kind of tie between these two women as Bible "types".

I really had to stop and praise God for that. This is one method of navigation between the two Testaments.

Jesus is Lord.
