Gematria Based Commentary on the Gospels
The purpose of this site is to show
that the authors of the Gospels extensively used the ancient Greek practices of sacred geometry, gematria, and isospephia in composing their text. They said their parables contained "signs and mysteries." This can most easily be shown regarding the "miracle
stories" that involve numbers.
This site will soon show previews of my coming low cost e-book
that will demonstrate that every single gospel story is a gematria
parable. Each gospel verse is a drawing instruction. My commentary will show how the gospel text uses clever puns and word play to describe the signs that are invisible to reader or the person hearing the story. My literal translation of the Greek text reveals all the ironic
wording that is expunged from the paraphrased translations found in
most English bibles. You will get to see how the signs for God the Father, his Son, and the Holy Spirit, form a Trinity. You will see the signs of Heaven, Hell, and Eternal Life. You will see how Jesus performed every sign miracle. You will see how everything the gospel authors wrote was 100% true. Look over the site. If you want to be notified

sprinkled throughout the site.
said to the 12 apostles: "You have been given the mystery of the Kingdom of God, but to those, the ones outside, everything
is given in parables ... so that seeing, they may see and not perceive,
" (Mark 4:11-12)
This passage comes
from Mark's version of the parable of the Sower. Mark hinted there
was a hidden meaning (a mystery) to this and his other parables. For
over 1900 years now, we have all been "outsiders" to the
"mysteries" of Christianity by only seeing a literal interpretation
of every gospel story we read or hear. With the publication
of this book, everyone can know "the mysteries of the Kingdom
Jesus also said: ... See what you hear! ... By what measure you measure,
it will be measured to you! (Mark 4:24)
The word "See"
in the above verse is mistranslated in virtually every bible into
a colloquial warning such as "pay attention to what you hear."
The Greek word blepete however, is a command to "see."
Biblical scholars reasoned no one can see words you hear!
So instead of translating the word literally they translated it to
what they thought Mark meant. The fundamentalist agenda of
most biblical scholars and an ignorance of gematria and sacred geometry
don't allow them to see Mark's play on words because there is
a way to literally see the words if you do what the verse says:
|1) measure (make a "sign") for every "key word" in a story,
2) use that "sign" wherever that word is used in the gospel,
3) measure (plot) those signs to a special graph (shown below),
4) the stories become visible! (they are measured out to you!)
site will give you a preview of my two volume e-book about early
Christian Sacred Geometry and the opportunity to buy it. Volume
1, titled Jesus 8880 - The Sacred Geometry Mysteries of Christianity will will demonstrate
that every major gospel story is a Sacred Geometry riddle with a
beautiful Sacred Geometry solution that proclaims the "raised
Jesus"! The "mysteries" of Christianity are revealed in its gospel
stories! Volume 2, titled Revelation 2368 will show a more advanced
and sophisticated style of Sacred Geometry to reveal the number and name of "the beast" many times in every chapter!
New Testament contains 27 books consisting of 21 epistles, four
Gospels, a book of Acts, and the Book of Revelation. All were
written in Greek. Of the 27 books, the four Gospels claim to be
an eyewitness account of the actual words and acts of the living
Jesus. The Book of Revelation claims to be an eyewitness vision
of the actual words of the raised Jesus. The common denominator
of the four Gospels, the Book of Revelation, and many of the epistles
is the claim that they contain "mysteries." So, what does that mean? This site will demonstrate that these New
Testament stories about the living and raised Jesus were sacred
geometry riddles. These "mysteries" were all made possible
by the inherent properties of the Greek alphabet and the "number magic"
that flowed from it.
The Greek Alphabet has an "8-8-8 structure"
The total letter value
of Jesus is "888"
The 24 letters of the Greek alphabet has an 8-8-8 structure. The first row of eight letters represent units, the second row of eight letters represent tens, the third row of eight letters represent hundreds. If you look inside any Greek dictionary you will see this 8-8-8 letter-number table. Every Greek person alive today knows it. Every literate Greek person alive during the time of Christ also knew it. It is interesting to note that the total of all twenty four letters
in the Greek alphabet is "3999," a number alluded to in Mk 8:9 "And there were approximately 4,000."
The Greek alphabet was invented almost one thousand years before the birth of Jesus. At the time it was invented, every one of the 24 letters in the Greek alphabet represented a number as well as a sound. Since every name and word in the Greek
language had a corresponding numerical value, words could be expressed
as numbers and numbers could be expressed as words. This made
the Greek alphabet a public cipher and immediately encouraged two numerical
practices called ISOPSEPHIA and GEMATRIA. Isopsephia is the practice of converting words and names into numbers. Gematria is the practice of converting numbers into geometry. The number value of "Jesus" is "888." The above circle has a circumference of 888 units, the same value as 8-8-8 table structure inscribed inside it. Can anyone honestly believe the authors of the gospels did not use this alphabetic cipher tool when they sat down to write?
Isopsephia (iso meaning "equal" and psephos meaning pebble") is the Greek word for the practice
of adding up the number values of the letters in a word to form a single
number. The early Greeks used pebbles arranged in patterns to learn
arithmetic and geometry. A Greek synonym for the word "pebbles"
is kalkuli and is the origin of the word "calculate."
Here is an example of an isopsephia riddle that can be
found in pseudo-Callisthenes' biography of Alexander the Great. On the
occasion of his ordering the Egyptian city of Alexandria to be built,
a God appeared to Alexander in a dream and gave him this oracle:
city of Alexandria that you are building will be coveted by the world
and I shall be its protecting deity for all time to come. You shall
dwell there when you are dead and living for this city will be your
grave. I shall quickly prove to you where you were meant to be. Take
two hundred and add one, then one hundred and add one, then four times
twenty, and ten, and take the first number and make it the last. Now
learn for all time what god I am.
Life of Alexander, circa 3rd century AD
Alexander allegedly solved the riddle by writing down
the string of numbers given to him in the dream (200 + 1 + 100 + 1 +
80 + 10 + 200 = 592) and then switching each number for its corresponding
Greek letter to spell out the name Sarapis (SARAPIS). Like so many ancient historiographies, the
story was a fabrication because the god Sarapis didn't exist when Alexander
was living. Sarapis was created by order of Ptolomy (Alexander's successor)
so that the new god would share the attributes of two Egyptian gods
(Osiris and Apis) and two Greek gods (Apollo and Zeus) for the purpose
of uniting the religious beliefs of the Greek ruling class with its
Here is an example of an isopsephia riddle taken from
the Christian Sybyllines which the early Church claimed were written
before the time of Christianity and which were widely touted as prophesies
of the new religion:
the virgin shall give birth to the word of God, the most high, she
shall give to the word a name, and from the east a star will shine
in the midst of day gleaming down from heaven above proclaiming to
mortal men a great sign. Yes, then shall the son of the great God
come to men, clothed in flesh like mortals on earth. Four vowels he
has ... and twofold the consonants in him ... and now I will declare
to you the whole number ... eight monads, and to these as many decads,
and eight hundreds his name will show.
Sybylline Oracles, circa 150 AD
To solve the riddle,
the son of God has to have a name with four vowels which is transparent
in meaning. The word "twofold" however is a mini riddle because
many people think "twofold" refers back to the number
of vowels. If that is true, the mysterious name must have twelve letters
...eight consonants and four vowels. It is interesting to note that
the average value of the twelve Greek letters is the "whole number
74" (more on that later). The other possibility is that "twofold" refers to the number of consonants which means the name has six letters.
The final constraint is that the number of his name must be "888"
(8 + 80 + 800). The answer is that the word twofold actually refers
to the number of consonants because the Greek name Iesous has
four vowels I, H, O, U and one consonant ... the letter S ... which
appears "twofold" times ... and all six Greek letters now
add up to "888." Amazingly, the whole number "74"
is the common factor of all the names and titles of Jesus! See
The word "gematria" is mistakenly equated with
the word "isopsephia" but gematria is actually a higher level
of isopsephia. The word "gematria" comes from the Greek word geometria having the dual meaning "earth-measure"
and "geometry." Gematria
is Sacred Geometry. The definition of gematria goes way
beyond adding up the numerical values of the letters in a word or pointing
out that the-number of one word, phrase or verse is the same as or 2,
3, 4, 6, or 10 times more than the-number of another word or name. Gematria
is the union of the number value of Greek words with the dimensions
of geometric objects such as the perimeters of circles and squares or
the lengths of symmetrical groups of lines that converge on circles
and squares. The power and mystery of gematria is only unleashed when
it is used in conjunction with geometry, graphs, and/or diagrams.
a circle of Life
is an example of a wonderful gematria riddle that ends the gospel of
These things are
written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that through this belief you may have life in his name
(the gospel of
John 20:31, circa 90-125 AD).
This verse implies
that if you believe in Jesus he will give you "eternal life."
Although the word "eternal" was never written, that was a
fine point that is supposed to be understood by the believer. The verse
has a very literal interpretation if one knows that gematria deals with
isopsephia and geometry. The solution is to represent Jesus as a circle
with the same circumference as the number value of his name. The early
Christian Sacred Geometers may have called a circle with a circumference of 888
units "the living Jesus" because the diameter of his circle
is 282 units, which is the gematria value of the Greek word bios, meaning
"earthly life." Conversely, the raised Jesus has a value of
8880 units and an inscribed "Star of David" in that circle has sides of
815 units which is the gematria value of the Greek word zoe,
also meaning "Life." The above diagram also explains why Jesus
came from the "House of David."
Mystery of the "Raised Jesus"
(888 x 10) = 8880
This may seem incredible:
nobody in modern times before the publication of this book has ever
recognized that the gematria value of key words such as "fishes,"
"loaves," "the net," the "sun," and the
names "Jesus," "John the Baptist," "Simon
Peter," the collective names of his twelve apostles are all linked
to each other through very simple geometric ratios based on "the
number" of the name "Jesus" raised by a power of ten
to the number "8880." Matthew, Mark, and John used this geometric
relationship extensively in their gospels! All
the "mysteries" of Christianity are based on the metaphor
of the raised Jesus (8880). Some
striking examples are shown in the table below (browse the site to see
the Greek spellings and more examples of gematria).

Greek practices of isopsephia and gematria were a well known fact
before the first gospel was written, why does it seem incredible to
think that the authors of the gospels did not use this pre-existing
knowledge in their writings in order to glorify Jesus Christ? The
Mystery Religions of ancient Greece used isopsephia and Sacred Geometry
(gematria) long before Christianity arrived on the scene. The
most important message of Christianity is that Jesus rose from the
dead and the authors of the
gospels made a geometric metaphor out of that claim by "raising"
his living value (888) by a factor of 10 and then making a circle
with a circumference of 8880 units to depict the "raised Jesus."
Enclosing the "raised Jesus" inside a square creates a graph
which is a metaphor for "the Kingdom of God." Circles representing
the gematria values of the "living" Jesus, his apostles,
and other characters can then be graphically depicted inside the "Kingdom"
or "Jesus Graph."
Every single verse in the Gospel of Mark uses this graph. Volume 1 of this book will demonstrate how
the authors of the gospels incorporated gematria and sacred geometry
riddles in their stories to proclaim the raised Jesus. Volume 2 will
demonstrate how the auther of the Book of Revelation used the same "raised
Jesus graph" as the gospels but employed a style of gematria that
was far more advanced and sophisticated to reveal "Jesus Christ."
