The last unsolved riddle in The Sibylline Oracles suggests there is an arcane name for the Heavenly Father of Jesus-the-Christ. The numerical value total for the letters of the Heavenly Father’s name conceals two occult features which, when elucidated, reveal the Heavenly Father to be the source of light in its physical and metaphysical aspects.
The proposed solution to the last unsolved riddle explains the solar/astronomical context for the riddle and its connection with the magic square of the sun, from which are generated significant numerical triplicities such as 666 in The Book of Revelation 13:18 in the New English Bible, 888 in Book One of The Sibylline Oracles, and 999 mentioned in The Kabala of Numbers.
