From the Publisher

I will open my mouth with a parable;
I will utter dark sayings concerning days of old;
That which we have heard and known, and our fathers have told us,
We will not hide from their children, telling to the generation to come the praises of the LORD, and His strength, and His wondrous works that He hath done.
—PSALM 78:2–4

The Torah was divinely revealed and relates to all of life. It contains eternal, perfect truth and hidden meanings that required elucidation. Isaac Bashevis Singe (1904-1991) said that every letter and every word of the Torah contain numerous secrets (In My Father’s Court).
? Why does it state that the LORD kept the Sabbath prior to creating the world?
? What numeric and mathematic secrets in Scripture? Why two different Creation narratives in the book of Genesis?
? What were Adam’s first words and first prayer? Did the couple stay in the Garden of Eden for only twenty-four hours?
? Did the LORD punish them only because they ate of the tree of knowledge of good and evil? What functions did the tree of life actually serve?
? The LORD had respect unto Abel and to his offering, but unto Cain and to his offering, He had not respect. Why?
? “For thee have I seen righteous before me in this generations” (Gen.7:1). What on earth was Noah’s righteousness? What significant transformation in the earth had occurred after the flood?
? It was Ham who saw the nakedness of his father Noah, why did Noah curse Canaan and his offspring instead of Ham?
? Joseph and Judah, who was the real hero? Is Genesis 38 really superfluous?
? Why did the LORD seek to kill Moses on his way to Egypt? And why did the LORD leave him alone when Zipporah cut off the foreskin of her son?
? What do the six angles of Magen David stand for? “Wisdom hath builded her house, she hath hewn out her seven pillars” (Prov. 9:1). What seven books and seven righteous men do the seven pillars symbolize?
? Why does it state that on a large scale the aliens converted to Judaism in Exodus event?
? There are messages about Genesis hidden in ancient Chinese characters. How to infer from Chinese characters that Adam’s first prayer was for Eve and the tree of knowledge of good and evil was an apricot tree?
? ……
The above puzzles are satisfactorily solved in this book. I employ the “interpreting Scripture with Scripture” approach, and explore the Scripture in light of Jewish tradition, archaeology, history, linguistics, literature, sociology, mathematics, geology, etc. As a result, the Torah codes are unlocked, and hidden meanings are revealed and expounded, through which the profundity of the Torah and Jewish traditions shines with even greater brilliance.
I also write of Adam, Eve, Noah, and Moses: Adam’s grand tour with the LORD, specific details about the fall, the righteous deed of Noah and Shem, and the LORD’s wondrous work on Moses’ way into Egypt. These tales feature a style of Kabbalah and Aggadah. Besides, they are full of quotations from the Torah and therefore present a structure of jigsaw. Most importantly, they conform to the Torah and enhance Jewish traditions.
