Daily Tidbits 12/11/11 – Human Arm

Jesus Christ, the Word, is likened to the Arm of the LORD (Isaiah 53:1).  The human body was made in the image of God (Genesis 1:26-27) in which the bones of the human arm and hand are a picture of the Word, Jesus Christ. The Messiah is specifically described as the ‘Hand’ of God (Psalm 118:14-16; Isaiah 48:13; Acts 5:31 etc.). The human hand consists of 27 bones which correspond to the 27 books of the New Testament. These bones are divided into 3 parts. 5 metacarpal bones of the palm corresponding to the Gospels & Revelation. 14 bones of the fingers corresponding to the epistles of Paul and 8 bones in the wrist corresponding to the epistles of the other Apostles…

The hand is connected to the three bones of the Arm (Isaiah 40:10; 63:5-8; Psalm 44:3; Deuteronomy 33:2 etc.) which correspond to the Torah, Prophets & Writings. The arm connects to the shoulder of which we are yoked to the Most High (Matthew 11:30), walking in one consent (Zephaniah 3:9).

In short, the 27 bones of the hand connect to 3 bones in the arm which equals 30.  30 bones in each arm and hand add up to 60.  This is amazing as the arms connect to the shoulders which consist of the 2 shoulder bones themselves that are connected to 2 clavicles and 2 scapulas which = 6.  60+6= 66…the exact number of books in the Bible!
