The Bible Code – Torah Code
Bible code research is said to date back to at least the 12th century, when rabbinical scholars first wrote about discovering meaningful words hidden in the Hebrew text of the Torah.
The truth is however, it goes back to Moses, who learned directly from G-d, all the secrets how to understand the Torah according to “human capacity.”
Everything and everyone that ever was or ever will be was recorded in the text of the first five books of the Bible, called the Torah. Thus, as it was passed down letter by letter from God to Moses, then generation by generation to modern times, great care has been taken to preserve it intact. Rabbis encouraged caution in Torah copyists by reminding them that just one letter lost in their work could bring about the end of the world.
In short, Genesis, is not simply a description; it is the very instrument of the act of creation itself, a blueprint in the mind of God made manifest in physical form.
Is it possible that only very slight changes have occurred in the original text over the 3,400 years since Moses first received it?
If this were true, it would be a wonder that ranks among the great miracles of the ages. The extensive evidence provided on this site for the reality of the phenomena of Bible codes lends support for that possibility. It appears that the Torah was preserved by a miracle, as were the Jewish people, despite tremendous persecution and being without a homeland for 19 centuries.
The Fathers of Bible Code Research
A 13th-century Kabbalistic rabbi, Bachya ben Asher of Saragossa, Spain, wrote of certain hidden information that was revealed to him by reading every 42nd letter in a portion of Genesis. This method of skipping over letters according to a particular sequence in an attempt to discover hidden messages is the basis for the modern Bible-code concept.
It was during the last attempt to exterminate the Jewish people as a race, the final solution of the Holocaust, that many credit with their restoration to the Promised Land. In the midst of this horrible time, Michael Ber Weissmandl, a Slovakian rabbi, continued his study of ancient writings by scholars who had found secret terms encoded in the Torah. But the Nazis were descending on his village, and the majority of his time was taken up with negotiating for the lives of people.
Rabbi Weissmandl, in fact, invented an outrageously bold scheme to ransom European Jews by bribing Nazi officials. The plan was workable, but no one could or would provide the $4 million the Germans demanded to save the lives of two million people, a mere $2 per person.
He himself was ultimately rounded up with his family and put on a death train to the camps. With him he took only a loaf of bread and three books, two copies of the Torah and a dusty commentary by a 13th century scholar mentioning the hidden codes. Alone, Weissmandl escaped the death train and eventually made his way to the U. S., where he was able to continue his research. And yet, he was tortured by grief. His devastating regret was that he had not been able to rescue even one of his children. He died of a broken heart in 1957.
Just a quarter of a century later, there was a fortuitous convergence of occurrences that were to move the codes from obscurity into the international spotlight. The war that brought death and devastation to so many lives also gave the world the most fiendishly clever code ever developed – Germany’s the Enigma Code. Breaking this code raised the study of statistics and probabilities to new heights, and brought about the invention of the computer.
Sometime later, the advent of the personal computer made it possible to carry out searches for codes in seconds that had taken previously hours and even days to do. Researchers inspired by Weissmandl’s work, and using it as a starting point, began to develop the software necessary to perform these searches.
Thirdly, there was an awakening of faith among the brightest minds in Judaism. Previously atheistic or religiously disinterested scientists and intellectuals began to find themselves attracted to the most orthodox beliefs. As word of the codes spread around the world, many of these men began to devote themselves to study of the Torah and the unraveling of these codes.
In 1994 three mathematicians of international reputation of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem published a paper in a scholarly journal giving statistical proof to the belief that uncanny descriptions of world events, which have occurred thousands of years after the Bible was written, seem to be encoded in the Torah. This article, tantamount to scientific evidence of the existence of G-d, captured the world's attention, becoming the center of international interest and passionate controversy.
The mathematicians discovered that names and events of the past and the present were encoded in the Torah by an encryption method called ELS, Equidistant Letter Sequences.
In this coding method each of the letters that form a hidden code is separated from the next letter, or previous letter, by an equal number of letters, not taking into account the spaces between the words.
The Bible states that G-d dictated The Torah, (i.e. The Law, the first 5 books of the Old Testament, also called the Torah and referred to as the Pentateuch), to Moses: "And Moses wrote all the words of the L-rd", (Exodus 24:4)
An ancient tradition says that when G-d dictated the Torah to Moses, letter-by-letter, historic facts, past, present and future was encoded in the Hebrew Scriptures by an encryption system which can be described and unlocked.
During the Middle Ages a very- famous rabbi, Moses Cordevaro, wrote, "The secrets of the Torah are revealed.... in the stripping of letters". In the 1 8th century the greatest Jewish thinker of his time. Rabbi Elijah Solomon, known as the Vilna Gaon, said, "All that was, is, and will be unto the end of time is included in the Torah, the first five books of the Bible.
However, the thorough statistical analysis of huge quantities of text could only happen with the development of the computer.
In 1994 the old tradition received a sound scientific basis when three Israeli mathematicians, (Professor Elyahu Rips, from the Hebrew University, Doron Witztum and Yoav Rosenberg), used statistical methods and computers to research the Book of Genesis, searching by equidistant skip interval" for the encrypted names of 32 sages who lived between the 9th and 1 8th centuries, checking every nth letter, where n can take any value. They published their study, Equidistant Letter Sequences in the Book of Genesis, in the scholarly journal Statistical Science, (Statistical Science 9:429-438), about what they called ELS (Equidistant Letter Sequences) in Genesis.
Their computer found most of the names with the odds against this occurring by chance calculated at 62,500 to 1. The summary of the article stated: "When the Book of Genesis is written as two-dimensional arrays, equidistant letter sequences spelling words with related meanings often appear in close proximity, with analysis showing that the (statistical) effect is significant at the level of 0.00002", (i.e. the odds are 62,500 to 1).
This study gave mathematical and statistical evidence that information about personalities; events and dates can be found encoded in the Hebrew Scriptures.
The researchers, for comparison purposes, did similar analysis in a Hebrew translation of War and Peace, a scrambled Book of Genesis, and other texts. In none of them the results were different from what would occur simply by chance.
The theory of Bible Codes, as summarized by Dr. Jeffrey Satinover in his book,
"Cracking the Bible Code", states the following:
a) The Torah (Five Books of Moses) can both be treated as a sacred text in the usual way, and as an encrypted text containing some kind of coded message.
b) The coded message was constructed by utilizing successive letters in the encrypted text selected at equidistant skip intervals.
c) The content of the coded message serves to confirm the unity and integrity of the encrypted text.
d) The content appears in the form of a statistical tendency for selected words to appear in identified locations at greater frequency than it should occur by chance.
e) One such tendency is for a code to appear many times in a passage of related text.
f) Another very important tendency is that two or more different, but related words can be found in the matrix in unusually close proximity. This can be either the "crossword effect", i.e. the key- code s vertical column is crossed horizontally or diagonally by a meaningfully- related word, or the "cluster effect", where meaningfully related words appear in the matrix more closely together than unrelated words.
g) If a specified code is found at several different equidistant skip intervals, the smaller intervals should be considered more meaningful than the larger ones for two reasons: one is that if the skip intervals get large, "close clusters" lose their meaning or they become more difficult to assess; the second reason is that in a large enough range of text it is possible to find a specified word many times at different intervals. A short interval would make the found occurrence be considered as worthy of note.
1.3 Internal evidence in the Bible for the existence of the codes.
The Bible has many verses -which can be interpreted as giving evidence to what the theory of the code states:
G-d dictated the Torah to Moses: "And Moses wrote all the words of the L-rd". (Exodus 24:4).
"It is the glory of G-d to conceal a thing". (Proverbs 25:2).
Messages have been hidden:
"But you, Daniel, shut up the words and seal the book". (Daniel 12:4).
Man is encouraged to unlock the codes and find understanding: Happy is the man who finds wisdom and the man who gets understanding (Proverbs 3: 13).
Bible Code Summary Personality Analysis
Your “Bible Code Summary Personality Analysis” is in a deeper sense an analysis of the essence of your soul.
There is much written on this most profound subject, and many allusions to this concept found in the passages of the Torah itself; from the beginning with Adom to the later with Moshe.
Concerning Moshe, it is written in the Sefer of Shmot 33:12 ............. ואתה אמרת ידעתיך בשם............ “And you (Hashem) had said, ‘I have known you by name’….” In a few passages later Hashem responds to Moshe (33:17) …..ואדעך בשם.... “ …. And I have known you by name “.
For further research on this subject, I recommend the following books that are written for the English speaker. The Wisdom in the Hebrew Alphabet, and The Alef-Beit by Rabbi Yitzchak Ginsburgh. Below is a brief introduction taken from the introduction of the book The Alef-Beit, which opens the doorway of understanding to this very deep concept of “you are the essence of your name” or “the essence of your name is what defines your very being”.
Introduction from page 7.
The Hebrew name of every being is the Divine power (or, specifically the permutation of individual Divine forces, the letters of the name) responsible for and active in its continuous recreation "something from nothing," as explained in Tanya.
In particular, the Hebrew name of each creature is the channel through which life force and consciousness descend from the spiritual root of the creature's soul above to its physical body below.
In relation to G-d, His Name is the power—inherent in Him and given to us to reveal Him below. Of even deeper significance, one's name contains the secret of one's mission on earth.
The two last words of the phrase "and what Adam called every living creature, that was its name," reads: הוא שמו, literally, "he is his name," which numerically equals the name Messiah, pronounced in Hebrew as Mashiach (משיח, 358).
Every living creature possesses a spark of Mashiach, a spark entrusted with the power to fulfill its mission, to bring redemption to its "portion" on earth.
( In the Jewish soul this spark is active; in the soul of every other living being the spark is passive, awaiting the "fertilization" (meaning having some kind of connection to a Jewish person).)
Adam when calling names, had not yet sinned. At this time, he was the 'potential" prototypical Jew.
( Had he withstood the temptation of sin, he would have fully actualized his potential, in himself and for all generations to come. His name “Adam” written in Hebrew as אדם stands for אדם-דוד-משיח, Adam-David-Mashiach, as taught by one of the most famous Kabbalists, Rabbi Yitzchok Luria (lived in the 16th century).
Only Adam was able to recognize the individual spark of himself, the spark of the Mashiach, as it was, latent in every living being. This is the secret of our Sages' report that in the act of calling names, Adam actually "mated" with ("knew" in the sense of "fertilized") every living creature.
Bezalel, the artisan of the Tabernacle, G-d's "house" during our sojourn in the desert, "knew how to permute letters through which were created heavens and earth." His name, Bezalel (בצלאל), means "in the shadow of G-d." "To shadow" means "to emulate." So, did Bezalel, through the knowledge of the power of the letters and their permutations, emulate G-d in the act of Creation, whose ultimate purpose is that all Creation becomes a "house" for G-d.
Likewise, one of the meanings of Adam's name (אדם) is "I will be like," as in the verseאדמה לעליון, "I will be like the One on High." (This phrase numerically equals צלם אלקים, "the image of G-d" with which Adam was created.) This "likeness" to G-d, similar to that of Bezalel, refers to his ability to "know" reality by name, as though through the eyes of G-d, the Creator. This is in order to draw down (by means of each creature's name) into the experience of Creation the awareness of the Omnipresence of G-d, whose creative letters, words, and Names never "leave" them, as taught in Chassidut.
