Now, where’d I got to a fortnight ago today…my drafting this suddenly interrupted upon spotting that what I was doing had gone public!
That Thursday, I’d kept seeing a weird status displayed across all open tabs of the two browsers I keep open. It took ages to update screens when visiting any site as cursors constantly rotated like spinning tops, instead of letting the tabs stop at a normal, stable display.
Also, I’d been getting unusual delays in saving work, even at 35M/s broadband. Maybe cross-talk between proxy servers had changed a status setting as I was saving and the draft got into the public domain. Maybe it arose from heightened cyber-security agencies’ activity against Russian interference/denial of service attacks in response to recriminations on their role in chemical attacks in England and Syria. Only once during many years blogging has a draft been accidentally published – and this time it was just as annoying!
Fortunately, I’d got to the end of saying how Hebrew and Greek alphabets can be used numerically. Now let’s continue:
LETTERS = NUMBERS : SENTENCES = SUMS & TOTALS = SHAPES & PATTERNS.
Previously, we learned about the astonishing inclusion of mathematical constants of ‘pi’ and the exponential form ‘e‘ – ratios of circles’ circumference/diameter ratio; the base of natural logarithms and rate of growth shared by all growing processes – each within the first verse of Genesis and John respectively, as revealed when applying the same mathematical operation of multiplication and division to their letters and words, NO MATTER IN WHICH ALPHABET; that is, using this ‘conversion’ ratio:
[(All letter values multiplied together) x (Number of letters)] / [Numerical values of all words multiplied together) x (Number of words)]; or as Dr Paul Bluer in Bible Maths:
Jonathan R Hill writes on page 39 of Unlocking The Sign Miracles of John,
‘Apply this ratio to Genesis 1:1 and ‘pi’ is revealed accurate to four decimal places. Apply the same ratio to John 1:21 and ‘e‘ is revealed, again accurate to four decimal places. Remember that Genesis and John were penned by two different authors in two different languages, hundreds of years apart (if not over a thousand: RB) These fundamental scientific and mathematical constants are markedly embedded within the two creation verses of scripture. Not only are they powerful witness to the creation of the heavens and of the earth but also to the One who created. In this way, the Hebrew and Greek texts of the Bible are authenticated as the authoritative media of God’s Word – as God Himself could have placed these mathematical constants there. No other explanation is possible.’ (Emphasis mine)
- ‘In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.’ (Genesis 1:1)
- ‘In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.’ (John 1:1)
In addition to the above, an exciting geometrical and, therefore, optical relationship exists between those two verses when all their letters have been changed to numbers and added up!
Then, using the principle of number triangles outlined in Post-Resurrection miraculous catch of 153 fish, the totals calculated for Genesis 1:1 and John 1:1 can be regarded as snooker balls, or small squares, and positioned into geometrical shapes. The sum for the value of Greek letters of John 1:1 forms a perfect plinth, or trapezium, which exactly fits the triangular number that can be formed by the sum of the value of Hebrew letters in Genesis 1:1, viz:
The sum of Greek letter values is precisely 3,627 and the sum of Hebrew letter values is 2,701, which forms a perfect equilateral triangle (as erected by the construction of a Vesica Piscis, shown in that post). Each of its sides consists of 73 small squares that represent one unit in the ‘conversion’ value of alphabetical letters. It’s noteworthy that 73 is also the numerical value of the Hebrew word for ‘wisdom’! Furthermore, there are scriptures that assert the world was created upon wisdom, for example:
- Book of Proverbs – ‘The LORD by wisdom founded the earth; by understanding He established the heavens’ (3:19).
- Prophet Jeremiah – ‘He has made the earth by His power, He has established the world by His wisdom. (10:12).
John 1:1 reveals that Jesus was with God in the beginning and thus He was before all creation, and Paul similarly writes at Colossians 1:17. Given that precedence, then it’s logical that John 1:1 is seen to support Genesis 1:1 in this mathematically visual way!
So far, we’ve learned the Bible has proven and demonstrable mathematical meanings buried within its text when letters are converted into numerical values. Moreover, many forms of mathematical operations and principles may be discovered, eg.
- standard arithmetical operations
- non-complex geometrical shapes
- Venn diagrams
- square root
And that’s only when taking ordinary three-dimensional space into account. Also hidden within Genesis is a descriptive name of God and a direct link to the nature of Time! But that’s for another time…meanwhile, click to read what ‘coincidentally’ appeared today!!

It’s a wonderful “coincidence” that this was revealed to you around the same time that the Lord was taking me through Venn diagrams and triangular numbers relating to the 153 fish. Yes you can’t argue with maths! Indeed it was God’s glory to conceal this, and to find this out is for the glory of the King. Good work!

Yes indeed and thank you Jo.
As you may have gathered I’d read the first part of JR Hill’s book on Genesis a couple of years ago and , blogged on it ‘coincidentally’ with a non-Christian mathematician but didn’t get around to reading any more. Then, your post reminded me of his chapter on 153 fish and, once again, more fitted in – and then it got knitted in with what I’m working on with Book of Daniel.
