~ Gabriel's Gift ~

The Message and Mysteries in Luke and Acts



Luke's surprise gift to the world has finally arrived after a long and arduous journey.

And, as a special bonus, "Luke's" real identity is revealed for the first time.

Gabriel's Gift was neatly wrapped in a package nearly two thousand years ago by a man known to biblical history as "Luke." On the wrapping, in plain sight, Luke placed thinly veiled clues that a gift of immense value was inside. He used Pythagorean and Platonic sacred numbers to prove beyond any doubt that a secret message was awaiting discovery. Numbers easily solved in each chapter prove Luke's knowledge of  the sizes of the earth, moon, and sun; the speed of light; DNA/RNA behaviors, and other scientific knowledge rediscovered only within the last century.


With that hook set, a never-before-told story unfolds as Luke's coded messages reveal the buried truth about Jesus, his disciples, and the role played by the Apostle Paul during the formation of Christianity.



Sample Chapter


            Among the items found at Nag Hammadi in 1945, in addition to ancient Jewish texts and texts with Gnostic undertones, was a short excerpt from Plato’s Republic. This item is, in my opinion, far more important than has been previously acknowledged. This puts Greek philosophy into the hands of the people of Jesus’ time and location and strengthens the argument for his knowledge of, and probable indoctrination into, the ancient Secret Schools that taught the Pythagorean philosophy that “Number is All.”


In case there are still doubts, perhaps one final proof that the numbers aren’t merely coincidental can be found by looking at Luke’s chapter nine. There are fifteen numbers greater than one in chapter nine, and I almost felt foolish multiplying them all together. But I was compelled to do so anyway. The fifteen numbers are:


12, 2, 12, 5, 2, 5000, 50, 5, 2, 12, 3, 8, 2, 2, 3.


Multiplying them one at a time:


12 x 2 = 24

24 x 12 = 288

288 x 5 = 1440

1440 x 2 = 2880

2880 x 5000 = 14 400 000

14 400 000 x 50 = 720 000 000

720 000 000 x 5 = 3 600 000 000

3 600 000 000 x 2 = 7 200 000 000

7 200 000 000 x 12 = 86 400 000 000

86 400 000 000 x 3 = 259 200 000 000

259 200 000 000 x 8 = 2 073 600 000 000

2 073 600 000 000 x 2 = 4 147 200 000 000

4 147 200 000 000 x 2 = 8 294 400 000 000

8 294 400 000 000 x 3 = 24 883 200 000 000


For convenience Plato frequently used 22/7 as pi. But another value and slightly more accurate pi which he also used is 864/275. It takes a little more work to manually calculate the circumference of a sphere using this larger number, but sometimes it was necessary in order to reveal the “coded messages.” Using the mean diameter of the earth, 7920 miles, and this slightly more accurate value for pi, the results are truly amazing:


7920 miles x 864/275:

7920 times 864 = 6 842 880

6 842 880 divided by 275 = 24,883.2 miles.


That’s the very number reached after multiplying all fifteen numbers in Luke’s chapter nine after the zeros are dropped from the end.


Every chapter in Luke’s Gospel contains similarly hidden numbers. Why would Luke go to such lengths to leave “Sacred Numbers” in his gospel?


The answer is quite simple: Regardless of the language spoken by readers, they will have the same understanding of numbers and the various functions applied to numbers. Numbers are the One Universal Language.


It seems that a Pythagorean Master Teacher inserted the numbers into Luke’s Gospel to attract attention. But why?


There is just one logical answer: to send a numeric message—using the One Universal Language—that there is a coded, written message. That’s the real story. And that’s where Philo’s Rules for Allegory are needed.


Perhaps the most important of Philo’s guidelines is to watch for something unusual in the text. The first obviously “unusual” occurrence in Luke’s gospel is the appearance of the Angel, Gabriel:


Luke 1:19: “The angel replied, ‘I am Gabriel.  I stand in the presence of God, and I have been sent to speak to you and to bring you this good news.’“


The angel Gabriel is named only four times in the Bible—twice in the book of Daniel, twice in Luke’s gospel.


Gabriel’s first appearance is at Daniel 8:16, and what he says seems pertinent to this story:


“And I heard a human voice . . . calling, ‘Gabriel, help this man understand the vision.’“


The numbers indicate Luke is sending a coded message; Gabriel says he has been “sent to speak,” Daniel adds that Gabriel is to “help this man understand . . .,” and the Book of Revelation ends with these words from Jesus: “‘I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things…”


Could it be any clearer that Gabriel and Daniel have been assigned to “help Theophilus” understand the “allegorical messages” and why “Sacred Numbers” have been imbedded in Luke’s gospel?


The obvious message in the Book of Daniel gets rather tedious after the first five or so verses, so the most important words in each verse are underlined:


Daniel 1:20: “In every matter of wisdom and understanding concerning which the king inquired of them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and enchanters in his whole kingdom . . .”


Daniel 2:19: “Then the mystery was revealed to Daniel in a vision of the night, and Daniel blessed the God of heaven.”


Daniel 2:22: “‘He reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what is in the darkness, and light dwells with him’“

Daniel 2:27: “Daniel answered the king, ‘No wise men, enchanters, magicians, or diviners can show to the king the mystery that the king is asking, . . .’"


Daniel 2:28: “. . . but there is a God in heaven who reveals mysteries . . .”


Daniel 2:29: “‘To you, O king, as you lay in bed, came thoughts of what would be hereafter, and the revealer of mysteries disclosed to you what is to be.’“


Daniel 2:30: “But as for me, this mystery has not been revealed to me because of any wisdom that I have more than any other living being, but in order that the interpretation may be known to the king and that you may understand the thoughts of your mind.”


Daniel 2:47: “The king said to Daniel, ‘Truly, your God is God of gods and Lord of kings and a revealer of mysteries, for you have been able to reveal this mystery!’“


Daniel 5:12: “. . . because an excellent spirit, knowledge, and understanding to interpret dreams, explain riddles, and solve problems were found in this Daniel,  whom the king named Belteshazzar. Now let Daniel be called, and he will give the interpretation.


Daniel 5:17: “Then Daniel answered in the presence of the king, ‘Let your gifts be for yourself, or give your rewards to someone else! Nevertheless I will read the writing to the king and let him know the interpretation.’“


Daniel 9:22: “He (Gabriel) came and said to me, ‘Daniel, I have now come out to give you wisdom and understanding.’“


Daniel 12:9: “He (Gabriel) said, ‘Go your way, Daniel, for the words are to remain secret and sealed until the time of the end.’“


Daniel 12:10: “. . . but the wicked shall continue to act wickedly. None of the wicked shall understand, but those who are wise shall understand.”


Did you get that message??


Gabriel and Daniel report that the wicked will not understand but the wise will understand! What are “The Wise” to understand?

The message is that there is some great mystery, puzzle, or riddle that “The Wise Theophilus” is to solve and interpret. But, what??


In addition to describing a great detective who is able to solve mysteries, riddles, and puzzles, the Book of Daniel reveals more about Daniel that pertains to Luke’s story:


Daniel 1:8: “But Daniel resolved that he would not defile himself with the royal rations of food and wine; so he asked the palace master to allow him not to defile himself.”


Daniel 1:12: “‘. . . Let us be given vegetables to eat and water to drink.’“


Daniel 1:16: “So the guard continued to withdraw their royal rations and the wine they were to drink, and gave them vegetables.”


It seems clear that Daniel is a vegetarian who does not drink wine. But what does that reveal that might pertain to Luke’s coded message?


Pythagoreans were vegetarians; they drank no wine or strong drink; they did not cut their hair; they wore white robes; they abhorred slavery; they considered men and women to be equal. (Leonardo da Vinci was also a vegetarian.)
