The Van Helsing Impetus – Excerpt No. 345

The name Matthew was familiar, and common outside of biblical references. However, Evelyn was not exactly Christian—

“Know thine enemy,” Clara whispered.

Evelyn was communicating to someone who would normally be her sworn enemy. This biscuit knows that hunters have intimate knowledge of biblical texts.

“For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the earth’s heart,” Clara said, reciting from memory Matthew 12:40.

The number three came up an awful lot in the verse. So either Evelyn was telling her to use three as a key, or there was some sort of pattern or formula to be applied. Let’s keep this simple.
