AUTHOR's NOTE [January 2017]: We tested OMER (the 49-unit measure) in an unusual context of History combined with Presidential Genealogy in the 2017 Inauguration Day book, "Jonathon's POTUS Cousins". [ https://www.amazon.com/dp/1542328772 ] The new book revealed that OMER is tied to the Biblical Verse "the sins of the fathers unto the third and fourth generation [where a generation is no more than 19 years average between father and mother, 16 years four months for women].
People avoid numbers, especially when they are entombed in their religious text. It is easier to write them off as fantasy then to assign them a factual, meaningful, basis for existing. This book deals with The Omer – a unit of Biblical measure equal to 49 – and a few of its sister units. It is a follow-up to, and supplies additional knowledge beyond that incorporated in "Genesis of Genesis" (/Genesis-William-Lawrence-Lipton/dp/1466459565/), readers might also be interested in "Charting the Patriarchs".
In reality, there is very little to be said of Omer, variations on its usage were so pervasive that a tablet dated between 1350bce (HY2412) and 1335bce (HY2427), thirty years before the Exodus, before the writing of Genesis, Omer was a formal salutation in a plea for help written by the Canaanite King Ayyab to Pharaoh Amenhotep IV. But its true significance, like that of is sister numbers, was in its ability to reveal the scope, and depth, of ancient astrological knowledge.
That being said, readers of the New Testament might recognize OMER in Matthew 18:22, where Jesus commands that forgiveness be give "Seventy times Seven" times -- 490 times -- or we are to forgive to the extend of one hundred OMER; we note throughout the Biblical numbers, it is common to multiple a key number by one hundred, and Jesus, trained in the Secrets of the Temple, would naturally follow that practice.
As was said, "In reality, there is very little to be said of Omer" but only because most people prefer to be ignorant of its importance.
Book descriptions are intended to be an ‘Elevator Pitch.’ But how do you pitch the skeletal structure of the Biblical? How do you describe the true story of the people who wrote it? How do you address the irrationality of those who insist upon retaining their pagan ways?
