The Great Mosaic Ray.

TABLE OF CONTENTS

This historic ray reaches from the beginning of the Creation to the end of Time in the Biblical sense, and is called, by the present writer, Edward Biddle Latch, the Grand Epoch. Mosaically the Grand Epoch is sub-divided into twenty minor epochs as a general chronological scale. Of these minor epochs six represent the six creative days; four represent the Euphratic or 1st Age of Man; two represent the semi divisions of the Hiddekelic or 2nd Age of Man; two, the Gihonic or 3rd Age of Man; and six represent the Pisonic or 4th Age of Man. The Mosaic conditions thus expressed find their counterpart in the Codex Argenteus page. As, therefore, the years of each of these minor epochs have otherwise been set forth, both Mosaically and by the Codex Argenteus page. The methods of their derivations need not be repeated here, but a comparison of their respective chronologies may not be out of place. Wherefore there appears:

Thus by comparison the respective chronologies are almost identical, and so become two witnesses in substantiation of their approximate correctness. Of these two witnesses one is for the Old Testament, and one for the New Testament. The comparison also corroborates the correctness of the division of the Grand Epoch into the twenty minor epochs as an historic ray reaching from the beginning of the Creation. The Mosaic scale; for, by the Scriptures of the prophets, the Mosaic epochs will be much subdivided in order that the local history of great reaches be developed, this development doubtless being the work of many. The indication becomes manifest therefore, that without a standard covering the general landmarks inextricable confusion would follow with investigation.
