    This video heads the new http://vimeo.com/channels/mattmeter channel. It helps prove Matthew's Gospel is first. This is a REVISED video on Matthew 1's genealogy, here showing how he datelines his own book as next after Malachi, 427 years after it, aka 30 AD. You'd have to know Daniel's meter to see all this, for Daniel metered that time. Video here is not final, either, but it's a lot closer to correct. Will keep vetting it. There ARE textual variants: Byzantine family, verse 6 has 4-5 extra syllables but might be a marginal note; Von Soden's verse 16 has five extra syllables which also looks like a marginal note on Mary's virginity (which is premature and not Matthew's style). In both cases, explanatory text is added, and the 'witnesses' (mss) are very few, comparatively. So this revision assumes the GNT text is correct. Revised doc link: http://www.brainout.net/MatthewMeterR.pdf or .doc, if you have Bibleworks fonts to read it (not Unicode). Vid file name: MattMeterR1ab.avi 1/25/14. Original video description is below. If you want the old (and incorrectly metered) video, just tell me in the comments, and I'll upload it to brainout.net for anonymous download. =================== Preliminary video on Matthew 1's genealogy dateline meter. Matthew is to the NT what Moses' Genesis was to the OT, so Matthew's dateline meter will be more comprehensive, playing on Psalm 90 and Isaiah 53. That's why he uses 14 (LEGITIMATE) generations in sets of 3, totalling 42 (to play on Isaiah 53 bookends of 42 each, splitting Psalm 90:1-4's decree, in two). WARNING: if you want this video, then download it now, because as I fix the meter, I'll keep replacing this video with an update, keeping this same name. In vimeo you can overwrite your videos without having to change the other stats, description, comments, etc. That's a convenience. My first videos on meter are almost always wrong. Still, the methodology is good. So if you want to play with the meter yourself, download also http://www.brainout.net/MatthewMeter.pdf . If you'd rather edit the doc, then replace 'pdf' with 'doc', but you'll need Bibleworks fonts (at http://www.bibleworks.com/fonts.html ). The text is the GNT in Bibleworks, pasted with no emendations. I've not yet checked for textual variants. There will be a lot of changes, so the above MatthewMeter will also be changing. Will take a month or more to get the meter pattern down. All I know for sure right now, is that Matthew is dating from the Temple 490, which went like this (for fuller description with related Bible verses, see http://www.brainout.net/brainoutFAQ.htm#6a ): * Exodus, 1440 BC, started a 490. * Deadline for the Temple was thus 950 BC, and it was completed 1 Ethanim of that year, 1Kings 6:1 compared to 8:1 . * So the next 490 years it had to stay up, taking you to 460 BC, * but the Temple went down 586 BC. * Isaiah explained how God would fix that in his perfect meter map, see http://www.brainout.net/Isa53Map.pdf . * The 126 represents the shortfall, Temple dying 126 years before its allotment (586-126=460BC), and it would take 140 years to get it back on track, * hence Daniel 9 is balancing to that track, which is deadlined at 1000th anniversary of David's death, 37AD being the outer time limit for Messiah's life. * But He died 7 years early, on what would have been the 2nd 490 for the temple, from 950BC to 460 BC to 30AD. * Christ died on the very day the original Exodus occured (for that was a deadline, too), 490 x 3 years prior. * Because He died 7 years early, the 69th week has not yet played, when He died. So that's why you've got the 40-year waiting for the Temple, and that missing 7 plays from 64-70 AD. So yes the Trib is yet-future. Which you'd know, if you used BIBLE's convention of SOLAR years, when counting the years in Daniel 9. (Scholars use lunar years and thus screw up the accounting, misdating the 490's ending as Palm Sunday or some other nonsense.) So Matthew is balancing to all that, but seems to be saying he's writing in the 21st year after Christ died on that 490. There are many ways to audit the idea, because he's used several sevenings to help one triangulate dates which relate to the theme of his gospel. So I'll know more, much later in the year. In all events, it's so obvious he's the first Gospel (see my Synoptics and Mark channels) that I'm embarrassed for anyone claiming some 'Quelle' or that Mark is first. Paul SURGICALLY quotes Matthew, as do Luke and Mark, so it's a no brainer that Matthew is first. The way the quotes work (i.e., where Christ quotes the OT, He changes it slightly, called 'interpretative quoting'), you can ONLY see those quotes IN Matthew. Duh. This meter will help prove that Matthew is FIRST, even more. As for the actual meter, all I know now, is that yes it sevens based on 490 (which I didn't expect). File Name: MattMeter.avi, 1/25/14.

    • Mark1c Revised 'Mark's Metered', verses 1-2 datelined 68 AD based on LUKE

      Continued from Mark1b, adjunctively. Here, we see in Bible how Mark using huiou theou in order to craft a 14 meter, might be valid. Due to the textual variants, there are four putative dateline meters one can claim for Mark 1:1-2: 14, 28, 49, 56. The 28 fails the syntactical rule, that a meter never divides by 7 in the wrong syntactical place (i.e., just before a quote but after naming the source of the quote). What's odd about all these alternatives, is that in any event you still come up with 68AD, since each of the alternatives thematically date back to relevant events 'from' 68 AD. We'd know he wrote in 68 AD anyway, from the way Hebrews is crafted, but this added dateline helps us understand what Mark means to say in THAT year, with all the associated isagogics. Better still, we see even more how he's writing the THIRD Gospel, deliberately playing not only on Matthew and Luke's text, but also their meters. So of course the next step, is to figure out Matthew's dateline meter: see http://www.vimeo.com/channels/mattmeter for that. Download the Mark docs, with 'R' as 'Revised' showing the 14, 28, 56 meter alternatives: http://www.brainout.net/MarkDatelineMeter.pdf and http://www.brainout.net/MarkDatelineMeterR.pdf .

        I didn't look at the mss in Bibleworks 9 for textual variants, prior to making this video. But its methodology is still useful. Since there are important textual variants, the video is only right if the variants aren't valid. But they might be valid. As a result, there are three other potential dateline scenarios. So this video becomes a good case study re how meter affects textual criticism and hermeneutics. For the video's scenario, download http://www.brainout.net/MarkDatelineMeter.pdf . For the other three scenarios, http://www.brainout.net/MarkDatelineMeterR.pdf . The 'R' is for 'Revised'. Very much revised, as you'll see. In the video, the scenario hangs on the variations, being invalid. For Mark quotes Matthew 11:10 as part of Mark's Dateline Meter, which is based on Luke's. Mark crafts his dateline based on Daniel 9, same '49' with the same theme: DIASPORA due to Temple Destruction, same number as the missed sabbatical years (from Rehoboam to Jeconiah). Can't be more obvious than this, to prove Mark's is the THIRD Gospel, and that Matthew is first. Seriously, the centuries' long stupid 'scholarship' re 'Quelle' -- in order to spit on Bible, of course -- needs to go to the trash where it belongs. Sorry to be so strong, but I'm so tired of sloppy scholarship used to disparage Bible, I could scream. All anyone needs to do is count syllables, which Jewish kids were taught to do, and which we Christians SHOULD be doing. Then we'd have less to argue about! File Name: MarkMetered.avi, 1/22/14.

          • NAD's PBHC hermeneutic: a closer look

            This short program examines the North American Division's (NAD) proposed "Principle-based, Historical-cultural" (PBHC) method of biblical interpretation. The method has been proposed as a means of dealing with certain "difficult texts" proponents of women's ordination (WO) have struggled with. With the use of the PBHC method, the difficult texts disappear, and "no conclusive evidence prohibiting the ordination of women can be found in the Bible." This video examines proposed guidelines for when to use PBHC, notes its close relation to the Historical-critical method, and discusses its embrace of reader-response criticism. Finally, the question is answered, can this method be considered to be compatible with longstanding Seventh-day Adventist use of the Historical-grammatical method. On behalf of the Council of Adventist Pastors (CAP) host Jim Brackett interviews pastor Larry Kirkpatrick.

              This video immediately continues the comparison between the North American Division's proposed "Principle-based, Historical-cultural" method of biblical interpretation, with the longstanding Seventh-day Adventist principles of the "Historical-grammatical" method, undertaken in part 1 of the interview. Pr. Jim Brackett interviews Pr. Larry Kirkpatrick for the Council of Adventist Pastors (CAP). Back-and-forth comparisons are made between the SDA method ("Rio" document"), and the NAD's new method.

                  More nuances in James' meter, to show how Jewish it is, how it references Psalm 90, Isaiah 53, Matthew 1's pregnant use of 42 in his genealogy (which gives scholars no end of head-scratching, lol); and especially, how James plays on his MOTHER's meter of 42. Of course, she was playing on Psalm 90, Isaiah 53, even before Matthew wrote his gospel. As recorded by Luke wrapping his meter around Matthew (Luke uses 77, which is the meter in Isaiah 52:13-15, versus Matthew using 52:13-14). To see how deft all this is, would require you to watch all my Psalm 90, Isaiah 53, GGS 10-11 channels' videos. Sorry. Point is, James is aware of ALL that information, when he writes. James doc: http://www.brainout.net/James1-2InGreekR.pdf or .doc . (If you don't like the colors, in MS Word you can 'select all' or just mouse out partly.. then click on whatever is the 'highlight-none' to get rid of the strong blue. To get rid of any other color, select and then click on whatever is 'Shading None' in your version of MS Word. Presumably the non-Word versions have a similar option.) Whew. I really didn't expect this much confirmation, and certainly not in James! When numbers balance this well, you know you got a right answer. Everyone who thinks he knows what James is talking about, will have to go back to square one, including me. Total shocker. In particular, the emphasis is increasingly on the Magnificat. They are all playing to it. I'm having a hard time accepting that. I didn't want to do the Magnificat videos (am something of a misogynist, though also female). But she's the link between OT and NT meters, and every NT writer is playing on her meter, here so baldly.. James. Yeah, well he's her son, you'd expect that but um GOD wrote the Bible, by teaching the writers to think the way He does, so (VPI doctrine) they could perfectly express what He wanted us to know. And this is what He wanted us to know? Talk about sterile bearing kids, Isaiah 54:1! I'm in shock, sorry. Need time to absorb this. Every time I do these videos I start arguing with God about whether the information in them, is really true. I mean, I am certain when I post. But then some time passes, and the meaning starts to hit me. Going to go argue with Him, now... File Name: JamesMetered2.avi, 1/17/14.
