A Geometrical View of the Testaments

The Bible comprises 66 Books - 39 in the Old Testament and 27 in the New. Observe, (a) that the total is a triangular number, (b) 13, factor of 39, is a star (or hexagram) number, and (c) 9, factor of 27, is a square (or rhombus) number. Both 13 and 9 are associated with 3, another triangular number. The following figures depict these features of numerical geometry.

The three composites show the OT Books in white and NT Books in blue. Each possesses three axes of symmetry.

Clearly, the structure of the Bible - as we Protestant Christians know it - displays beautiful geometrical patterns!
