Daily Tidbits 3/14 – Π Pi

FULL VERSION

Today is national Π ‘pi’ day so I thought it appropriate to share a tidbit on π ‘pi’ and its connections to the Word.

Circle of the Earth & π

Isa 40:22  He who sits on the circle of the earth, even those living in it are like grasshoppers; He who stretches the heavens like a curtain, and spreads them like a tent to live in;

Pro 8:27  When He prepared the heavens, I {Wisdom/Messiah} was there; when He set a circle on the face of the deep,

Pro 8:30  then I was at His side, like a master workman*; and I was His delights day by day, rejoicing before Him at every time;

Rev 3:14  And to the angel of the assembly of Laodicea, write: These things says the Amen, the faithful and true Witness, the Head of the creation of God:

Chuck Missler, in his video ‘What is Truth?’ brings forth some interesting information about the equations of pi and the mathematical constant of ‘e’.  These are the only two ‘constants’ in our universe.

The Mysteries of Pi and e
by Chuck Missler

The recent discovery that the speed of light is not a constant has created quite a stir – and rethinking – in both physics and cosmology. (Although the spate of recent articles always fails to credit Barry Setterfield for calling this to our attention over a decade ago!) However, there does appear to be at least two intrinsic constants in the universe: p  and e.

We all met p (“pi”) in school when we had to deal with the circumference of a circle and similar matters. “Pi are squared” sounds like bad grammar, but it is correct geometry for the area of a circle, pr2. We approximated it with 22/7, until we got into engineering circles where we learned that, more precisely, it was 3.141592654…

Natural Logarithms

Perhaps less well known to most of our less technical subscribers is the base of Naperian (“natural”) logarithms, e . It shows up in myriads of places in advanced engineering and mathematics such as:

A Rabbinical Tradition

The ancient Hebrew sages believed, of course, that God created the heavens and the earth. However, some of them believed that the Word of God was the very template with which He did it.

There are two well-known references to the creation in the Scripture: Genesis 1:1 and John 1:1. Let’s look “underneath” the text of each of these.

Pi can also be calculated from Genesis 1:1 by taking the 22 Hebrew letters (that were used in creation) and dividing them by 7 for the seven words of this verse.

22 / 7 = 3.14

The Number 314

From biblewheel.com:

The connection between Book (Biblos = 314) and the Bible and the Number pi = 3.14159265… is very interesting in light of the continued fraction This link takes you off the Bible Wheel site and opens a new window convergent pi ~ 22/7 = 3.142857_ and the structure of the Bible as a Wheel of 22 Spokes and 7 symmetrical canonical divisions (cf. The Canon Wheel Explanation).
