Now a quick lesson in Gematria
These are the two methods that I use most of the times do Gematria. Although there are some others methods, I do not use them.
1. Absolute Value
2. Ordinal or Positional Value
1. Absolute Value consist of the 22 Hebrew Letters.
To each, in succession, is assigned a value.
Aleph=1, Bet=2, Gimmel=3, Dalet=4, Hey=5, Vav=6, Zayin=7, Chet=8, Tet=9, Yod=10, now to the power of ten, Kaf=20, Lamed=30, Mem=40, Nun=50, Samech=60, Ayin=70, Pey=80, Tsade=90, Qof=100, and now to the power of 100, Resh=200, Shin=300, Tav=400.
2. Ordinal or Positional Value consist of there standing in the Hebrew AlephBet
The Ordinal, or Positional value, gives each letter a number, from 1 to 22.
Aleph=1, Bet=2, Gimmel=3, Dalet=4, Hey=5, Vav=6, Zayin=7, Chet=8, Tet=9, Yod=10, Kaf=11, Lamed=12, Mem=13, Nun=14, Samech=15, Ayin=16, Pey=17, Tsade=18, Qof=19, Resh=20, Shin=21, Tav=22.
If you use the Ordinal Value to get "Yeshua's" Name (Yod=10, Shin=21, Vav=6, Ayin=16), it totals 53. Now the Ordinal Value of the Hebrew word "Torah" (Tav=22, Vav=6, Resh=20, Hey=5), also totals 53. Chance? No not at all, just one more "signpost" for us to see.
This is more proof to me that "Yeshua," which = 53 and "Torah," which = 53 is one in the same! Again letting us know truth was spoke by John in his book.
"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with G-d, and the Word was G-d."
"Yeshua is the Living Torah."
And if that's not enough for you, take a word picture of the word "TORAH."
The first letter is a Tav, which is a picture of a Cross, meaning: a Sign, Seal or Covenant.
The second letter Vav, a picture of a Nail, meaning: to secure.
The third letter Resh, a picture of a man's head, meaning: a Person, the Highest.
The last and fourth letter is a Hey, a picture of a Lattice or Window, meaning: that which lets you see or reveals something to you.
So what is does TORAH really reveal to us in Word Pictures?
"See the man nailed to Cross, which is a sign and seal of the Covenant"
I rest my case!
