This site presents a new discovery of a code in
the alphabetical sequence of words as well as the word and page numbers
associated with the words such as in a Bible lexicon. Its applications range
from deliriously humorous to gravely serious.
Word 404 in the New Testament lexicon, for
example, means "refresh" which is the HTML command used in custom
404 error pages to forward the page to an appropriate index.
Word 1776 means "disturbance,
The word listed right after "web"
in the Old Testament Hebrew lexicon means "highway." The word
"web" falls on a page number (in Gesenius') that happens to be the
telephone prefix where I was living when I wrote up this discovery.
Another match-up of interest to computer geeks is the number 127 which is the binary
max. For example, on page 127 of Zodhiates' NT lexicon is word number 254. The
number 254 is exactly twice 127. The binary code is defined in increments of
doubled numbers. 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64.
This discovery was made on Nov. 11, 1999, which is kind of cute in that
this date represented numerically is 11111999. That is about as close to a
representation of the binary max 111111 that you can get in a calendar date
(considering the line-up of 9's to also play into this theme).
The code includes commentary on everything from health to politics. The
word immediately before "Clinton" in a
large dictionary I have is "CLINQUANT: Something with a false and showy
Some of the applications are so uncannily specific as to be laughably
unbelievable. For example, I looked up the
number of the amount I paid for my fiancι's engagement ring in the New
Testament lexicon. The word means "finger," and is associated with
the page number, 395 (in Zodhiates), which is the house number where I was
living at the time. Word number 395 occurs on page number 165 which is the
apartment address number where we first lived (and still reside). That word
number, 165, is on page 106, which is the house number where she was living at
the time of our courtship.
Go ahead and try it. Look up
the last four digits of your telephone number, for starters. Maybe the Bible
turns out to be some kind of Book of Life in a way we had never before
considered. I know I never look a numbers and words the same way anymore, but
wonder what kind of hidden meaning they might contain.
