An archive of brainout's vimeo video descriptions and playlists (to go along with the dumped videos in the event vimeo pulls them down with all of the playlists and text).
First 10 videos summarize this rhetorical style: it maps 'How God Orchestrates Time'. Then, videos are per book in ascending date order. Bible writers use dateline meters to:
1. Telegraph book content and tie prophecy relative to the date of writing, so
2. The meter creates FROM the date of writing -- for the date was already known to those who initially got the letter/book -- the meter creates, a GPS of Time: so they could better RELATE time to the text, and thus appreciate God's Grace and Protection.
3. So retrospectively, we who do not know when those letters were written.. can learn.
4. The writers also used the dateline meters to point to other Bible books, so the readers could more easily reference what other Scripture to compare, while reading (or remembering) the 'current' letter/book.
5. Often, within a book, separate dateline meters are used; so the dateline is not merely restricted to the greeting portion of the letter. However, any subsequent meters will tie to the greeting section, and will provide a lot of precise, added information of the same structure as #1-#4, above.
Therefore, the datelines are always numbered in terms of significant Bible-related events past or future, especially as a 'time to Millennium' countdown 'clock'. The doctrines most applicable in light of that countdown which the letter/book will stress, are telegraphed by the dateline meter 'paragraphs'.
These meters are often quite sophisticated, so the links below are for whole channels dedicated to specific dateline meters in key passages. By contrast, the videos here are either the first in the video series linked below, or are here in this channel because there's no need to dedicate another whole channel just for these other books. This style began with Moses, and was in Hebrew, for teaching DOCTRINE. It is distinct from 'stoichometrie' as shown in http://www.stichometrie.de/gliederung.html . So that site has nothing to do with the Bible's own meter style here shown.
Suggest you go through this channel's links IN ORDER for fastest comprehension. It will take well over a year to absorb the material, so ASK GOD if He even wants you to look at this. For the material is addicting, once you get into it. And, there's no 'scholarly' corroboration of the meter, since no one knows it even exists (though scholars have speculated about its existence, for over 300 years). So I know I had to have made mistakes, but there's enough proof from the links below that YES this meter exists and does what is claimed.. the errors won't invalidate the existence and provable NATURE of the meter, but instead any mistakes will become obvious and will better prove how this meter works. Hence my courage, in posting and spending so much time on the subject.
So: presuming God wants you to analyze this, try following this order (which is roughly chronological):
Meter Rules are summarized here, based on the content below: http://www.brainout.net/BibleHebMeterCharacs.htm . You can substitute 'pdf' or 'doc' as the extensions, to download those file versions. That piece doesn't have any Greek or Hebrew fonts in it, and is best read rather than watched. The links below, demonstrate these meters in action.
How God Orchestrates Time, the doctrinal 'math' behind the meter pan-Bible: How God Orchestrates Time
Psalm 90 meter including Dateline, the PRECEDENT for all Bible meter: Psalm 90 Meter of Time (Precedent for Bible Hebrew Meter) ; videos include Isaiah 53's and Daniel's meter in context of how they play off Psalm 90's meter, showing how the text and the meter all interrelate. This sets precedence for how NT meter works in Greek (same rules).
Isaiah 53's meter including dateline, from which Matthew and Luke crafted their genealogies: Isaiah 53 Meter of Time: 1st David's Birth to Last David's Scheduled Death
Magnificat Meter (including Dateline, the core of the Magnificat's prophetic nature, and including Zecharias meter, which plays on Mary's): GGS11s Magnificat Meter of Time . Technically Mary's meter precedes Matthew's, as both she and 6 months later Zecharias, spoke in 5 BC. Matthew will key his meter to Daniel also, thus playing off Mary's.
Matthew's Dateline Meter, proving conclusively that his is the first Gospel (all subsequent NT books play off Matthew's meter): Matthew is Metered! . His meter focuses on Isaiah 53, Daniel, the Magnificat .. baldly.
Eph1:3-14 Anaphoric Meter Structure in Ephesians, including his 'Christ Age 56' dateline, playing baldly off Mary's meter as well as Matthew's: GGS10 Paul's Meter Of Time Structure in Eph1:3-14
Prophetic nature of Paul's 'what if the Rapture' meter (after his dateline, which set it all up) -- tying to FUTURE Roman and Church history: GGS11 Paul Maps Future Church History
James' dateline meter, which is based on Luke's: James 1-2 Meter and Exegesis
Luke's dateline meter, which is bifurcated between 'cover letter' dateline to Theophilus, and the actual Gospel dateline (written 7 years earlier): same as James channel starting at Jim7, because Luke builds his entire Gospel around the Magnificat meter.
Peter's Meter including dateline, showing he wraps his text to Ephesians to make a marching song: Peter Meters Time to Paul's Eph 1:3-14
Mark's Dateline meters (just Episode 1d et seq), proving his is the THIRD Gospel, playing off Jude's meter (not Ephesians, as I originally thought): Mark's Gospel Proves Q Scholars Wrong
Hebrews dateline meter, which plays off Peter, Mark, Luke, Ephesians: vimeo.com/brainout/rfg6b
John's Dateline meters in Gospel, 1John, Revelation: John's Meter
The Youtube copy of this video streams better, youtube.com/watch?v=eU_ndLPIO44&list=PL40216F6E28F05780&index=24
GIST: Jews expect Messiah to come (or come again, if they believe Christ is Messiah) in their year 6000 (i.e., per Rambam or see Talmud, Order Nezekin, Sanhedrin 97, then search on 'Kattina'). Yet they also retain a garbled recognition of the 4200, see Sanhedrin 97b, search on 'eighty five jubilees'. It was 84, same as the number of syllables in Psalm 90:1-4, from which BOTH of their garbled timelines derive. Sample of their confused reasoning: books.google.com/books?id=xGRDoiK-chsC&pg=PA12&q&f=false
How valid is all that? This video introduces the issue; future videos will document where in the Hebrew (you can't see it in translation) the Bible provides what might be considered 'proof' of a 7000-year timeline for history. But what's the impact of Church, since Rapture is unpredictable? We'll cover that too, in future videos.
To warm up for them, you might want to study my Psalm 90 playlist videos (here in Youtube, but vimeo link is better: Psalm 90 Meter of Time (Precedent for Bible Hebrew Meter) ). For the primary source of Jewish Dispensationalism depends on the HEBREW METER in Psalm 90. And the Jews all know this. They just get the meter wrong.
Christian scholars don't recognize Bible Hebrew as having meter. But the Jews all had to memorise orally, so meter is commonly used in the OT, and is a very handy way to be sure you memorize correctly -- and know your prophetic timeline, too.
In 2014, Passover begins today, April 3. So tonight plus two more nights equals 5th as His last night, anniversary. So tomorrow plus two more days equals April 6, so the TRUE Easter day is after sundown, April 6. We get it perpetually wrong, ignoring Bible verses in this video.
Both video and exhaustive Bible backup are here: brainout.net/PassPlot.htm . Audio audit of Vernal Equinox: brainout.net/VEconfirms30AD.WMA . You can see the VE yourself, here: timeanddate.com/calendar/seasons.html?year=1&n=0
Took me over 2 years to research; you can prove it all yourself IN the Bible, within a month or two.
So why are we so confused about his Death Date? ANTI-SEMITISM, which disdained learning the details regarding Passover, in the Mosaic Law! So because the anti-semitic 'Church Fathers' didn't BOTHER to learn the details, they screwed up the dating of His Death! Disgraceful!
No problem. It's not hard to prove what BIBLE says, if one but reads it. Sometimes you need to be a Greek geek to catch John 19's sarcasm (which all the scholars know about, read ISBE), alerting us to the fact that TRUE Passover occurred when the Lord was crucified (so the formal Passover He ate, was due to the calendar not being updated for the new year). Those verses are covered in the above webpage.
God begins tracking Christ's Birth and Death dates in Genesis 5. Exactly. And based on His Death date, you can exactly know what days of the week are any year forward or backwards of that date. This is the only timeline in history which is 100% consistent and provable. So why don't we use it?
How did we EVER come up with the goofball 'Good Friday' nonsense, which requires 1+1+1=1.5? Sheesh! Spitting on the Cross! Spitting on Bible! Spitting even on common sense!
ONLINE TALMUD LINKS ARE IN HERE. The whole fix shows in the onscreen icon for the video: so you don't have to play it; download link follows below. Video goes through the fix, as I created it during the video process. For, thanks to an email I just got from someone else who's also doing the meters in other Bible books, I now know an error I'd been making for some years: my error, was to listen to the 'scholars' and the Jewish calendar practice of intercalating an Adar sheni, instead of doing the math myself; well, the guy writing me the email did the math and informed me of my error, hooray! So now you can see the correction: Adar is the WRONG MONTH for intercalation. Bible uses ELUL, and so did Israel, prior to the Exile, per the Talmud. So, this video shows the fix.
Frankly, there's no need to intercalate, just always have Elul=35 or 36 days. Autumnal equinox 'naturally' occurs on its last day, in that design. And I bet money, that's how God designed it. Only later when Israel got hung up on being 'different', did she revert to the pagan practice of lunar years, and hence needed to intercalate.
To the corrected calendar in the last segment of the video: brainout.net/Intercal.xls . If you'd rather just look at the picture you see onscreen before video starts, brainout.net/CorrectedforBIBLEIntercalated2015-2016.jpg or pdf, if you prefer pdf. The xls has the same data, which was corrected after video done (I mistyped the dates after May 2016,in the video).
If you also want to correct the Adamic years, 6122 begins on the autumnal equinox 2015. For the complete Adamic calendar going back to Adam which the Bible actually uses in the NT meters (because I derived it SOLELY FROM the Bible), download brainout.net/GeneYrs.xls .
Also, brainout.net/HebCal.htm is useful, and the site explaining it (both now corrected to say 'Elul' instead of 'Adar' for intercalation), is brainout.net/PassPlot.htm .
Book citing Talmud (footnote 66 on page 254) as source for the PAST PRACTICE of Elul not Adar, intercalation (Elul intercalation always makes the equinoxes 'fit'): books.google.com/books?id=FI9pAgAAQBAJ&pg=PA254&f=false . You can also view it in Amazon (but not page 254), amazon.com/Calendars-Antiquity-Empires-States-Societies/dp/0199589445/ref=sr_1_4?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1427579199&sr=1-4&keywords=Sacha+Stern#reader_0199589445
Click on 'Look inside' then search on 'intercalary Elul' to get to page 254, but you can't actually read that page. You can read pp249 and 255, though.
Babylonian Talmud ONLINE: juchre.org/talmud/talmud.htm . The citations in the video are in Order Mo'ed: at bRosh Ha Shana 19a and 19b, 32a, juchre.org/talmud/rosh/rosh2.htm#19a , juchre.org/talmud/rosh/rosh2.htm#32a , and bBeitzah 6a and 22b, juchre.org/talmud/beitzah/beitzah1.htm#6a and juchre.org/talmud/beitzah/beitzah2.htm#22b .
Book citing POLITICS over intercalation (page 772, but you have to view the book for three pages prior, which maybe you can't do in Google) -- so we know why the Jewish calendar is wrong, and has been wrong, for centuries: books.google.com/books?id=M0wUKoMJeccC&pg=PA772&f=false . You can also read the page here in Amazon: amazon.com/History-Palestine-634-1099-Moshe-Gil/dp/0521599849/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1427578896&sr=1-1&keywords=Moshe+Gil
Click on 'Look inside' then search on 'creation of the world on 25 Elul' to get to page 772.
Of course, due to our own anti-semitic politicking, to cover up the fact Christ is JEWISH -- all our calendars are messed up with respect to Easter, as the earlier PATU videos (29-31) showed. So our political gambits are to blame, NOT Bible!
Yeah, and God made it possible to easily correct RIGHT NOW, as the xls and video, show. Whew. Remember, upcoming anniversary of His Crucifixion, is really April 3; upcoming real Easter (really First Fruits) date is post-sundown April 6, which is 'our' April 7. EASY. No politics, no slovenly 'scholarship', just BIBLE.
I tried to summarize the links etc. on how you can tell from the Hebrew and Greek meters, in the Bibleworks forum, thread here: bibleworks.com/forums/showthread.php?6133-Bible-has-its-own-method-of-ANNO-DOMINI-display , The LukeDatelineMeters.pdf has the links as well, so just download it, if you prefer. It does not yet have the Intercal.xls, but will.
At 8:22 in the video (click that number and look at the bottom), you can see the Babylonian Talmud citation. I couldn't see it when scrolling. Video shows it more slowly, at 19:08. Links to those Talmud passages are in the video description, as the Babylonian Talmud is easily searched ONLINE at juchre.org/talmud/talmud.htm (my usual fav Talmud site, rabbinic traditions, isn't working well).
So you can pause the video and see the Stern citation live, esp. if you can't see it in Google books (which won't now let me see that page 254 in Stern's book). You can't see it in the Amazon link to the book in the video description, but you can see part of the text the video shows for that page.
