The Amazing Bible Codes (ELS Codes) Part One
Proverbs 25:2
It is
the glory of God to conceal a matter, but the glory of kings
tosearch out a matter.
Some Information has been taken from Grant R Jeffrey’s books: ‘The Signature of God’, and ‘TheHandwriting of God’. Also from Yacov Rambsel’s ‘His Name Is Jesus’ and other reputable sources.
Some History
Towards the end of the twentieth century, computer scientists in Israel discovered astaggering phenomenon: encoded words hidden within the surface text of the Bible.Within the Hebrew text of the Old Testament they found hidden codes that revealedan astonishing knowledge of future events and personalities. The existence of thesecodes can only be explained if God inspired the writers to record His precise words. 
Dov Weissmandl’s Contribution
Rabbi Michael Dov Weissmandl, a brilliant Czechoslovakian Jewish Scholar inastronomy, mathematics and Judaic studies, found an obscure reference to thesecodes in a book written by a fourteenth-century rabbi, Raddeynu Bachayah. Thisreference described a pattern of letters encoded within the Torah, the first five booksof the Bible.Dov Weissmandl read of this discovery during the years preceding World War One,and in doing so inspired him to do his own research and look for other examples of these codes hidden within the Torah. He found that he could locate certainmeaningful words, phrases, and word pairs, such as ‘hammer’ coupled with ‘anvil.’ If he started on a certain letter, and then skipped until he found a second letter thatmight make sense within a word. He would then skip again the same amount of letters as the first skip, to see if a third would present itself, and so on, and so on.This was the very basic and simplistic beginnings to the story of these codes. As an example, he found the Hebrew letter tav, the first letter of the word Torah,which is the Hebrew word for ‘Law’, within the first word of Genesis 1:1, “Beginnings”Bereishis. Then by skipping forward fifty letters, he found his second letter vav. Hecontinued to skip forward fifty letters more and found reysh, and finally the last letter hey, completing the spelling of the word Torah. 
The rabbi was astonished to find that many ‘significant’ words were hidden within thetext of the Torah at equally spaced intervals, yet found himself frustrated at themanual approach and only approach available to him at that time, and althoughRabbi Weissmandl found many encoded names by manually counting to letters inthe text, he did not record his findings, but fortunately his students did.Over the following decades, students in Israel heard of Weissmandl’s discoveries,and began to search the Torah scriptures for themselves, to determine whether or not such a code existed. Their discoveries ultimately resulted in research studies atHebrew universities that have proven the validity of the codes, now known as ELSCodes, or ‘Equidistant Letter Sequencing’. 
In Came Modern Computers
In the last couple of decades, the introduction of high-speed computers, has allowedJewish Scholars at Hebrew Universities to explore the text of the Torah in ways thatwere unavailable to any previous generations.
Witztum RipsWitztum, Rosenberg & Rips Contributions
In 1988, three mathematicians and computer experts at Hebrew university andJerusalem Collage of Technology (Doron Witztum, Yoav Rosenberg and EliyahuRips) completed an astonishing research project, that followed-up RabbiWeismandl’s original research. As a result, they published a paper in August 1994entitled “
Equidistant Letter sequencing in the book of Genesis
”, in one of themost prominent mathematical and scientific journals in the world, “the AmericanMathematics Journal”. During this first paper, they were astonished to find meaningful groups of words,which the law of averages indicated was impossible for this to be coincidence. Eventhough the law of probability and averages clearly indicated there was somethingamazing to be considered here, the paper was met with scepticism by many leadingmathematicians, claiming that with letter jumps such as these, it could be possiblefor meaningful text to be found in any large written piece of work. Witztum,Rosenberg & Rips and others carried out tests on other large Jewish written works,to find that, although some words did indeed present themselves, it was extremelyrare and well within the law of probability, and even then, word grouping almostnever made any sense.This alone should have been enough to at least cause serious debate andconsideration, but with the religious nature of the findings, it was clear further proof 
would be needed. However, even for Witztum, Rosenberg and Rips, the realizationor concept that prophetic events and personalities could be embedded in thescriptures by the finger of God had not been fully realized or looked into at that point,although they suspected this may be the case.
1994 Follow-up Paper 
A second study was undertaken by Witztum, Rosenberg and Rips, resulting in asecond paper being put forward, this time focusing on a more specific theme. Theresearchers selected the names of thirty-four of the most prominent rabbis andJewish sages who had lived from the beginning of the ninth, to the end of theeighteenth centuries, and ‘all’ many hundreds of years future from the period that theTorah had been penned. These rabbis and sages had the longest biographies foundin the
‘Encyclopaedia of Great Men in Israel’ 
, a well-respected Jewish referencebook. They asked the computer program to search the text of the Torah for ‘close wordpairs’ coded at equally spaced intervals that contained the desired search criteria,which in this case was the names of these prominent sages and rabbis, paired alsowith their dates of birth or death (using the authentic names for the Hebrew monthsand days). This type of search was especially relevant, because the Jewish peoplecelebrate the memory of their famous sages or teachers by commemorating thedates of their deaths. Even Witztum, Rosenberg, Rips and their team were not prepared for the resultsfrom the completed search. Incredibly, the computer program found ‘every singleone of the thirty-four names of these famous rabbis and sages embedded in the textof just the first book of the Torah, Genesis!Each name of a rabbi was paired in significantly close proximity to the ‘correct andactual’ date of his birth or the date of his death. The odds against this occurring bychance were accurately calculated by the Israeli mathematicians to be only onechance in 775,000,000!The scientists and editors at the ‘Statistical Science Journal’ who had reviewed theexperimental data were naturally amazed. Having no explanation demanded that theIsraeli scientists run the computer test program again on another sample group.
Third test and sample group
This time they searched for the names of a second group of thirty-two prominentJewish sages listed from the same encyclopaedia. To the complete astonishment of the sceptical reviewers, the results were equally successful! The combined tests hadrevealed that the names and birth or death dates of every single one of the 66 mostprominent and famous Jewish teachers or sages were encoded in close proximitywith the text of just the book of Genesis, without even needing to venture into theother four books of the Torah! The overwhelming evidence from the tested, checkedand re-tested data had become so indisputable, that the journal editors had nochoice but reluctantly agreed that they must publish the article and findings, in itsAugust 1994 issue, under the title
“Equidistant Letter Sequences in the book of Genesis”
