Enter the Gematrix

בס״ד

Gematria is the numerical value of the Hebrew letters. Just like Roman numerals, there were no separate symbol-systems for numbers and letters in ancient Israel. The letters functioned as numbers with the first letter representing the number ‘one,’ the second letter representing ‘two,’ and so on. This means that every word in Hebrew represents a number specific to that word and the sum of its letters/numbers. The study of the numerical value of the words in the Hebrew Bible is an ancient method of Jewish study and many wondrous discoveries have been made in it, leading many people to believe that Hebrew is truly a holy language and the one with which G-D spoke the Universe into creation.

Most of the Gematria I have learned has been from Ariel Cohen Alloro, an Orthodox Jew who lives in Jerusalem. He says that Gematria makes Torah a science, because mathematics is the ‘mother of all sciences.’ Math operates under fixed laws that do not change due to our subjective experience. So too, a study of Biblical Gematria leads us to understand G-D’s will, if we let the facts speak for themselves more than our opinion of them.

There is an idea expressed in the Zohar and repeated in the book, Kol HaTor (chapter 3), that when the Prophet Isaiah states that “every valley will be raised,” “this refers to gematria.” “In the final days,” the study of Gematria will become elevated over the more popular methods of Bible study, which will be lowered. Kol HaTor talks about “the revelation of the secrets of gematria computations that concern the footsteps of the Messiah” and says, “as the footsteps of the Messiah approach, more and more gematria hints appear.”

Yeshua’s famous last words on the Cross were quoting Psalm 22. These words equal the phrase, “You shall have no other gods before me.” In case there is still any doubt as to who is the “only true G-D” before whom we shall have no other gods, these phrases equal, “Ancient of Days,” in contradistinction to the “Son of Man” in Daniel. It is as if Yeshua’s last cry on the Cross was to direct all attention to the Ancient of Days and to warn against all idolatry made of himself, a man, even the glorious Messiah…
