Summary of "Who Is the True Messiah? |
Dating back to the 12th century, rabbinical scholars have written about the phenomena now known as Bible codes. In the 20th century, the advent of the computer has catapulted code research into a new sphere. Once, finding a single equidistant letter sequence (ELS) by hand, which spelled out a name or short phrase, was big news, and when the code was found at the beginning or end of the text that was the end of the search.
Now, we have the capability of examining codes for lengthy wrapped sequences. Imagine taking the Torah or Tanakh (Hebrew Old Testament) and connecting the beginning to the end making a cylinder. Then, imagine that the code that once started or ended at the beginning or end can wrap around the text (in theory) indefinitely.
Recently, BCD ran a series of searches of the phrase Who is the true messiah? Out of the seven findings of the phrase, four resulted in extensions. Here are two of the resulting codes:
The first code appears to read from a Christian point-of-view. The first phrase His mother carries within her he who is the true messiah would be set chronologically during Mary's pregnancy. It could, therefore, be read as, "Jesus' mother carries within her Jesus who is the true messiah." It seems fitting that she is referred to as his mother, since being referred to as the mother of Jesus is virtually synonymous with Mary's name.
Regarding the second code, it is not difficult to imagine that this code could be from the Pharisees' point-of-view. The Pharisees would judge (grade) Jesus' teachings, behavior, and His companions. Following the Pharisees muttering that Jesus eats with sinners (Luke 15:1-2), Jesus tells the Parable of the Lost Sheep, a picture of God's tremendous compassion and love for a single lost soul and the antithesis of the Pharisees' judgmental, hypocritical attitudes. It is not difficult to imagine the Pharisees uttering You will not be exalted. Strike brings to mind Jesus cleansing the temple of money changers (Matthew 21:12-13), and refuse when Jesus refused to answer the allegations against Him (Acts 8:32-33, Isaiah 53:7).
