Ed Sherman's New Book
Probes Origins of Buddhism,
Citing Solomon's Likely Influence
People assume Buddhism originated in India, free of any real Western influence. In this book, BCD's Ed Sherman challenges this belief. Back in 2007, BCD's code findings indicated a strong link between Buddha and portions of the Bible written by Solomon four centuries before Buddha lived. We researched this possibility and a compelling array of intriguing evidence surfaced.
The Bible plainly tells us that "The whole world sought audience with Solomon to hear the wisdom God had put in his heart." (1 Kings 10:24, NIV) India's existence was well known in Israel when these words were written.
A colony of Jews settled in India around the time of Buddha's birth (563 BC). Perhaps Buddha encountered a learned Jew who briefed him on Solomon's sayings, which in turn became a key part of Buddha’s new religion? Is that why Buddhism resonates with many Westerners today?
BCD was blown away by how long and strong the codes were that suggested a Buddha-Solomon linkage. That linkage can go far in explaining numerous similarities between the teachings of Buddha and Jesus.
How do Judaism, Buddhism and Christianity compare? How might they be interrelated? This blockbuster book will tell you everything you need to know to better appreciate key similarities and differences. Its side-by-side comparisons are an invaluable resource.

Hosni Mubarak: A Skeleton? A Scared Turtle?
On February 11, 2011, it was announced that Muhammad Hosni Sayyid Mubarak had resigned from the presidency of Egypt. Mubarak had served as the longest ruling head of state since Muhammad Ali Pasha (1805–1848). BCD ran searches on H. Mubarak, Mubarak and Egypt from Isaiah 14:1 to Isaiah 24:1, specifically looking at codes that touch down in Isaiah 19, as that chapter outlines God's judgment against Egypt.
This article first appeared as a Briefing sent out to our subscribers on February 24, 2011. It appears in the digest for the first time, with the complete tables.
Libya and Egypt in Ezekiel 29 and 30
We continued our search for Egypt and Mubarak in Ezekiel 29 and 30. In addition, with the unrest in Libya, we added Libya and Gaddafi.
The Rav Shmuel Shick Cluster
Armed with information on his family tree dating back 260 years, Moshe Aharon Shak set about to search the codes for his family. This extensive article outlines his findings. In addition, there is a link to a YouTube video, which presents some of his findings.
New Name, New Look
We have a new name and a new look. Previously, The Isaac Newton Bible Code Research Society, we are expanding our areas of research and our new name reflects that: The Isaac Newton Bible Research Society.
Osama bin Laden
On May 1, 2011, President Obama announced the death of Osama bin Laden.
Moshe Aharon Shak has contributed his translation of a Bin Laden code found a number of years ago by Dr. Leib Swartzman.
Cursed (is) Bin Laden, and a revenge for the messiah.
This code has a skip of 6,598, and is located from Genesis 9:9:33 through Numbers 5:4:34. [For those who are interested, the Hidabroot website posting for this code is solely in Hebrew.]
Over the years following 9/11, BCD has published numerous articles that contain Bible codes on Osama bin Laden. Here are five of the codes, which each refer to him as dead or sleeping.
- Yesterday evening they whispered, Bin Laden is dead.
- He will wonder where the hiding Bin Laden is sleeping.
- And Manasseh is casting a cloud on him, and we will pick up the dead Bin Laden.
- Bin Laden is dead. Where is the monument for the oppressed?
- The farmer of Rome came. Bin Laden is dead. The deep throat burned everything.
Visit our BCD Website Index page and scroll down to "Bin Laden" for links to several articles that contain these codes and more.

Subject: WikiLeaks for "leaked an echo?"
(America-7) They leaked an echo, America.
Could this mean WikiLeaks?
(Treasury Department-1) They screwed up. And the lofty Treasury Department. And full of hot air.
(Treasury Department-9) The Treasury Department behaved in a brotherly way.
They screwed up by bailing out the big American banks?
(U.S. Government-1) They will see the living running to the Father. In vain we will have the U.S. Government bereaved in you, and the back of the poor will resist. Bear a gift to them.
Could this mean unemployment checks?
[The codes above are all found in the America Terms Provide Revealing Glimpses article.]
Subject: Jesus and Parrots
In this code, This is the mother of this deceased, the teacher of parrots, for Yeshua (Jesus) has saturated the exhausted father, it is suggested that it may refer to St. Francis of Assisi. Could it not just be speaking of the disciples? Jesus had asked his apostles to go forth and teach others as he has taught them, in a manner of speaking "parroting" him.
I am not a scholar of any kind but it seemed to me the St. Francis connection was more of a stretch than the idea I proposed.
Thank you very much,
[The code above (Yeshua-P.8) is from Yeshua Codes in Isaiah 53 and Psalm 22.]
