A preview of The Genesis Wheel was ranked in the top 0.5% of papers by academia.edu. This book is an exploratory romp around the biblical world that introduces a new paradigm to debunk the documentary hypothesis.
Presenting evidence that the creation story of Genesis was founded upon an alphabetic framework, Bethsheba Ashe analyses the gematria of every word of every line of Genesis 1-2 (no cherry picking here!). She demonstrates ancient scribal conventions and the elegant mathematical notation of biblical authors.
Gematria sometimes has a bad reputation as something fringe or hokum, but this book is based on a tremendous amount of research and scholarship and is highly credible and useful, enabling readers to answer questions posed by the mythology of Genesis such as “what was the fruit of the Tree of Life?” or “how was light created before the sun?”
It’s got great ★★★★★ reviews and is highly recommended.
Bethsheba Ashe is an INTJ author, cryptographer, programmer and creator of the world’s first dual logographic and alphabetical writing script. She’s a bit of a geek and learned Python at age 47 so she could code the Shematria.com calculator. She is the author of six books and one screenplay, and is proud to be a weird woman.
“The Genesis Wheel is a book for anyone with even a slight interest in Gematria (ancient alphabets that are also used as number systems and whose encoding into texts are used both esoterically and to provide essential, most often secret or hidden, information) as well as sacred scripture in general, both the Old and New Testament.
The author of this work has clearly done an immense amount of groundwork and research into the particular number systems and specific coding applied by the early writers of the books of the Bible.
This has brought to light a completely new and surprising interpretation of the Bible that adds new levels of understanding, which makes this book a very interesting read. It is well written, highly engaging – and most importantly – thought provoking. The author’s enthusiasm for the subject shines through on every page.
To add to this work, Bethsheba Ashe has developed a fully functioning website that allows input of any text in Hebrew, Greek, Arabic and English to be calculated automatically using the new Bible Gematria values that she has discovered were used to encode Gematria into the very fabric of the texts of the Bible’s Old and New Testament.
This website also has a wealth of invaluable resources and links to relevant ancient Jewish books and Kabbalistic literature, which you’ll struggle to find anywhere else. This is indeed a Great Work! 10/10.”

From the Author
“My interest in cryptography began as a kid after I was presented with a copy of John Worsley’s charming book “The Spirit of the Stones” during the holidays. Armed only with my Commodore 64, I set about attacking the cipher. My success at breaking codes and exposing secrets isn’t because I’m smarter than everyone else. I’m just a very stubborn person and a bit obsessive when I get my teeth into an interesting problem.”
