Fourteen Points

The diagram on the left positions the obtuse tetradecagram upon the Crown Diamond display; the right-hand image is its acute version. Both stars are derived from the circumscribed measurement of the longest angles of the stars pertaining to the churches of Smyrna, Pergamos, Thyatira, and also Sardis, where it appears twice, and Philadelphia, where it is inverted. As with other stars, polygons with the same number of sides appear in the centers of the fourteen-point stars. Note that both these circled stars contain chords with arms running parallel to the Crown Diamond's vertical lines.

A fourteen-point star marks what is traditionally held as the location of the birthplace of Jesus of Nazareth within Bethlehem's Church of the Nativity in Galilee, modern-day Palestine. The reason for choosing a star of fourteen points to represent the star seen by the wise men and shepherds at the birth is unclear, but it's interesting that the tetradecagram's measurements, as determined by the stars of the Churches of Asia, serve also to position the Seven Point star on the Crown Diamond as the septagram is widely associated with the "Morning Star," considered a reference to Messiah by many.

The fourteen points of focus depicted at the right employ an alternate means of connecting them, narrows visual perception towards the interior while approaching congruence with the Crown Diamond verticals of the outer court. It is interesting to note that the circle being formed by the connecting interior lines at the confluence of verticals very nearly equals a measurement twice the cubit of the vertical Adam Kadmons. What skew is there is pinched at top and splayed at the bottom. The seven and fourteen-point stars display measurable movement towards alignment with the mathematical dynamics of the Shield of David.
