The New Jerusalem is a cube where the six faces of the cube are the six points of the Star of David, the twelve edges are the twelve tribes of Israel, the three dimensions are the three persons of the Blessed Trinity, and the eight vertices are the eight sides of the octagonal structure of Dome of the Rock.
A cube is a three-dimensional solid object bounded by six square faces, facets or sides, with three meeting at each vertex. The cube is the only regular hexahedron and is one of the five Platonic solids. It has 6 faces, 12 edges, and 8 vertices.
A cube is a three-dimensional solid object:
The cube is made up of three equal dimensions which are the three persons of the Blessed Trinity. The three persons of the Blessed Trinity are the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Since Blessed Trinity is God, the kingdom represented by the cube is the kingdom of God.
A cube has six faces:
The six faces are the six square facets or sides representing the six points of the Star of David. The Star of David is the symbol of Jewish identity or Judaism. Like the Star of David is central to Jewish identity so the regular hexahedron is placed at the core of the cubic structure of the Kingdom of God.
A cube has twelve edges:
Each edge of the cube is a tribe, such that the twelve edges of the cube are the twelve tribes of Israel. Since the six facets are the six points of the Star of David and the twelve edges are the twelve tribes of Israel, the cube is the united Israelites Kingdom - the kingdom of David.
A cube has eight vertices:
The eight vertices of the cube are the eight sides of the octagonal structure of Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem. The six facets of the cube are surrounded by the eight vertices like the eight sides of Dome of the Rock surround the Foundation Stone (the Pierced stone).
