Part 2: Matrix With Long Terms

Long terms snooped by Roy A. Reinhold, with
input from Dr. Nathan Jacobi and Walter York.

(Article text by webmaster: Roy) This matrix builds on the original article of July 4, 2001. If you haven't first viewed that matrix and article, please do so; since it has interesting background material, pictures, and is the basic matrix upon which the results in this version are based. Go to Melchizedek matrix Part 1.

What is snooping? The traditional way to find and build a codes matrix is to look for a list of meaningful terms made up of single words and occasionally a 2 word phrase. That method does work to find the correct matrix. However, the statistical significance is not high, because the matrix tends to be made up of short code terms. We have recently begun to more systematically look at the terms in a matrix, to see if they are part of a complete sentence or a long phrase. That method of looking before and after a term already in the matrix, is called snooping.

In the original Melchizedek article on this site, dated July 4, 2001, there are a couple of snooped terms; but it was just a quick look. What we have done, and as shown in this article, is to look at more of the terms from the Melchizedek matrix and snoop them. For example, the original matrix showed the main term "Melkhi-Tsedek" as a 7 letter term. Now it is 35 letters in length when snooped. The matrix has gotten quite a bit bigger because a couple of terms go way up or way down from the original matrix. The longest term in the matrix is the Yeshua ben-El term, which was 8 letters long originally and is now 40 letters long. Bible Code Digest has this term in their top 20 of longest terms, but they only have 33 of the 40 letters and it is their not fully understanding the Hebrew and significance that has led them to show only a partial view of this term.

The original thesis of the Melchizedek-Yeshua matrix was that they are both the same person, that Melchizedek, who briefly appeared at the time of Abraham, is the same person who later was Yeshua (Jesus) of Nazareth. The July 4 version made that case and this expanded version seals the case.

We show an English translation and an alternate translation, because both are correct and good translations of the Hebrew. In most cases the original translation is by Roy, and the alternate translation is by Dr. Jacobi who is a native born Israeli and who attended schools in Israel through his doctorate. Therefore, respecting his view of the Hebrew is important.

Lastly, this updated Melchizedek matrix should not be considered the final view. We did not even snoop all the terms in the matrix, and Cindy has a bunch of other short terms in the master matrix she works with at home. I had her cut it down to 40 terms, so that when showing it here on the internet, you could view the amazing interaction of terms, clearly see the long terms that were snooped, and do it without too much clutter. After the matrix report and matrix below, I will explain the use of some of the verbs in the longer terms (stem type, gender, number, etc.) so that both critics and proponents don't have to dig for the information. The calculation of odds will also be below the matrix.


In the matrix below, Cindy has highlighted with shadowing a part of the two main terms. One has the name Malchi-tsedek and the other is Yeshua ben-El. The matrix is dual themed, in that it shows His existence as Melchizedek and later as Yeshua ben-El. They are the same person as the matrix proposes.

If the matrix also has information about the end-times coming of the Messiah too, then it would be a triple-themed matrix. There is some indication that this idea may be in the matrix, since Cindy has some terms in the master (not shown here) that are descriptive of the future coming of the Messiah to reign on the earth. Perhaps that avenue of research may be fruitful for future development of this matrix.

Calculation of Statistical Odds (rougher method using R-values, but it is ballpark)

Tanakh text R-value of main term = 31.076
Cumulative matrix R-values of all other terms = 104.352

Total matrix R-value = 31.076 + 104.352 = 135.428

therefore, odds = INVERT LOG 135.428 = 1 chance in 2.6791683 times 10 to the 135th power

Let's be more conservative and allow/subtract a billion times a billion from the above number, just to be more conservative. A billion times a billion is 10 to the 9th power squared, which is 10 to the 18th power. If we subtract 10 to the 18th power from the above odds, then we are left with 1 chance in 2.6791683 times 10 to the 117th power.

What does that mean in practical terms? It means that when the critics falsely proclaim there is no Bible code, they are not telling the truth based on statistical measures; whether they base it on little random terms they found at ELS in another text than the Bible, or whether they say it is based on digrams and trigram tests run from a false hypothesis of what the Bible code is, or whether they cast doubt by trying to use textual criticism and say that the Bible code is not possible because the text is rife with errors. When pigs can fly and hell freezes over, then maybe the critics will have a starting basis for doubt about the codes.

Let me add one more thing about the critics indirectly referenced above. I deeply respect their work, because any field and findings worth anything are made better by the presence of critics. Their criticism sharpens the proponent side of the issue. Their work was valuable in pointing out that simplistic little Bible code matrices made up of a few short terms are not meaningful or are embryonic at best. Anyone who tries to claim significant results from a Bible code matrix with a few short terms is fooling themselves and trying to fool the public. Therefore, the work of the critics is important and worth considering. However, they are wrong.

Now might be an appropriate time for the critics to gracefully throw in the towel on their criticism of the Bible codes and the claim that the Bible codes cannot be true. We appreciate their insightful past criticism efforts, but now may be the time to publicly change their stance concerning the Bible code with no loss of face or prestige. A person who refuses to believe outstanding proof just becomes a grumpy person. Bible code critics: please consider changing your public stance to at least being neutral on the possibility that the Bible codes claims are true. We will welcome you to the proponent side.

As I stated earlier, we have not snooped all the terms in this matrix, and what is shown is just an intermediate finding.


Indepth information on the long terms in the matrix above:

1. And God, from God is a lamp that God brings. God awakens his lamp and bestows a title of honor on Malkhi-Tsedek (a priest forever).

A lamp is symbolic for the soul/spirit. The Brown Briggs Driver Lexicon makes the distinction that l'canot means to bestow a title of honor rather than the simple bestow. mav'ee defective is attested in spelling 3 times in the Tanach for "bring". Psalms 110:4 mentions that Melchizedek is a priest forever, and we see the same thing in a term crossing this long Mechizedek term "Be a priest forever, his substance is law".

2. Who O mountain? They eluded attention; be becoming Yeshua the son of God, a lamb of Tishri. You will mourn because of him, and at the command, "to God" (to HaShem).

This is an amazing term 40 letters long. It is actually a paragraph that encapsulates the life of Yeshua (Jesus) of Nazareth in one term. "Who O mountain?" is poetic, and mountain refers to the holy Mount Zion in heaven where God the creator dwells and poetically addresses Him. The "who" is the subject of the rest of the term, Yeshua ben-El. The root word "luz" means to elude attention or to turn aside (so as not to be seen), and the Qal 3mp use is straightforward. The phrase "to elude attention" can refer to the birth of Yeshua when Mary and Joseph slipped into Bethlehem covertly. It could also address Joseph taking Mary and Yeshua to Egypt to avoid king Herod Agrippa's order to kill all baby boys in the Bethlehem area that were 2 years of age or less. However, an alternate use is "zo or zoo" which is a personal pronoun and we have it here with a lamed prefix meaning "for that one". We show both renderings of the term, because both are correct and their meaning applicable.

"A lamb of Tishri" is poetic, meaning Yeshua was born in the month of Tishri in the fall of the year. The last portion of the term refers to the women mourning Yeshua's death on the cross, and at the command "to HaShem" when he ascended to heaven 40 days after the resurrection. Both the women and apostles mourned when he left and ascended to heaven. All in all, the long term is consistent with the scriptures (at least from a christian viewpoint).
