In the new testament, there is maybe a message in the number of chapters in each Epistle. In the four gospels there are 89 chapters total[Jesus and the word]. Acts has 28, Romans 16, 1 Corth: 16, 2 Corth:13, down to 1 each in 2nd & 3rd JOHN and Jude ending with Rev: 22.
SORT OF LIKE, the foot steps in 1 Peter 2-21 [follow his steps]. There are many steps [chapters] in the four gospels. Then the falling away as you read through the New Testament. The disciples speak of false teachings and doctrines throughout. A falling away from following Jesus steps and the word.
The steps look like this, MATT: 28, Mark 16, Luke 24, John 21 [gospels and The word] Acts 28-16-16-13-,Galatians 6-6-4-4-,1Thes: 5-3-6-4-3-1-,Hebrews 13-5-5-3-5-1-1-1 in 2nd & 3rd JOHN plus Jude, then Rev: 22. You can see the chapter steps falling away from the four gospels and the word.
Bringing back, Jesus as the cornerstone, as spoken of in the Bible. Shown by the chapter steps falling away after Jesus death. [interesting]
