Yehuyah No. 222= The overall meaning of multiple twos in the Bible is somewhat unclear, but they are related to the creation of Eve and the second marriage Adam had. They are also associated with Jesus' return to earth! and they additionally reveal how rewards will be distributed upon entering the Kingdom of Heaven and how we must deal with temptations.
Both Luke 22:2 and 22:22 are linked to the murder conspiracy against Jesus through the use of multiple twos, and the verse of Luke 22 is one of the only places in the Bible where it is recorded that people were actively seeking to kill him before his arrest. Verse 22 of the same chapter reveals that at Jesus' last Passover, he knew all along who the person was that would betray him to the religious authorities.
The first appearance of multiple twos within a chapter and verse is in Genesis 2:22, and this verse reveals that women were not a separate creation but were purposely made out of a rib borrowed from Adam. God did this to underscore the close relationship he intended for marriage. From the start, matrimony was intended to be the unification of equals, but it charged the man with the responsibility of becoming the leader of the family after sin entered the picture (1 Timothy 2:13-14).
One of Jesus' greatest yet misunderstood uses of symbolism is found in Matthew 18. In verse 8 and 9, he warns that it's better to lose a hand, foot or eye than to have two hands, two feet or two eyes (222) that condemn us. Since sin is generated out of thoughts and choices (Matthew 15:18-19), the Lord is not condoning self-mutilation as a means of dealing with sin, but rather admonishing us to decisively deal with the temptations that lead to it.
This is probably in response to Pope Francis saying that homosexuality is not a crime, and the church should do more to end laws that criminalize same-sex relations, which I asked for some more clarity on.
In Matthew 25's parable of the talents, Jesus uses 222 in verse 22 to teach an important lesson about those who enter Gods' Kingdom. And the one who had received two talents also came to him and said "Lord, you delivered to me two talents, I have gained two talents besides them" (Matthew 25:22), the man who received two talents doubled his Masters' money just like the person who got five talents did (Matthew 25:16). The Lord rewarded both men equally showing us that he judges and rewards fairly based on what a person does with what they are given (verse 21, 23).
Lastly, Jesus uses the example of two men in bed, two women grinding and two men in the field (222) to warn us that many people will be arrested and killed prior to his return to earth (Luke 17:34-36, 37).
