Was Jesus Christ the personification of daylight?
I recently converted the values of the Greek alphabet to match the values of their paleohebrew counterparts (see below). I really wasn’t expecting to find anything, but for the sake of completeness I gave it a go. Naturally the first words I looked up were ‘Jesus Christ’.
Admittedly I’ve done very little research on the New Testament, but early results are encouraging. The name “Jesus Christ” in Greek is = Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ which yields an Isopsephy value of 719.
This is significant because every twelve hours the hour hand and seconds hands of an analog clock align exactly 719 times and in John 11:7-9 it says this:
7 Finally, He said to the disciples, “Let us go back to Judea.”
8 “Rabbi, they replied, “the Jews just tried to stone You, and You are going back” there?
9 Jesus answered, “Are there not twelve hours of daylight? If anyone walks in the daytime, he will not stumble, because he sees by the light of this world.”
And in 8:12 Jesus identifies himself with the “light of the world”.
12 Once again, Jesus spoke to the people and said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows Me will never walk in the darkness, but will have the light of life.”
φώς Light + κόσμου World = 510
719 – 510 = 209; which the gate number of the path of Resh (the Sun) on the Seven Palaces.
However I must add a strong note of warning; this is simply one interesting result and it may turn out to be a complete coincidence. There will have to be an extensive amount of research done before we can say with any confidence that early Christians were using the same gematria of the Tanakh with the Greek alphabet. On the other hand, there were a great many Jews that converted to Christianity in it’s early days so it is possible.
If it is true, then it may be that the stories of Jesus arose as a late addition to other works that concern the Merkabah. We might the call the gospels and the assorted apocrypha surrounding Jesus – “Daylight Tales”. Many biblical characters in the Tanakh are personifications of stars, planets, the seasons and of days and years. For instance, Jacob and Esau are personifications of the Summer and Winter, and Abraham (248) represented the 9 anomalistic months of the Moon.
The concern of the Merkabah is set out in Bereshith/Genesis 1:14 “Then God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years…”
Until more research is done with the New Testament and the assorted Jesus apocrypha then this is all highly speculative, but if you find any further interesting results – please let me know!
