review of Yacov Rambsel's book,
His Name Is Jesus: The Mysterious Yeshua Codes
written by Roy A. Reinhold

Recommendation: better than his first book, good basic level codes book from a christian viewpoint.

Yacov Rambsel's 2nd book on the Bible codes; His Name Is Jesus was published in late 1997 and in small paperback in 1999. Yacov's writing style and content gets better in each book he does, so this book is better than his first one, Yeshua. In His Name Is Jesus, Yacov develops the Isaiah 53 matrix with ~50 terms, including the names of most of those associated with the events surrounding the crucifixion of Yeshua (Jesus). I think the Isaiah 53 matrix is extremely interesting.

As a messianic jewish rabbi/pastor of over 25 years, Yacov's focus in the Bible codes is towards finding evidence that Yeshua (Jesus) is the true Messiah. He codes by hand, eschewing the use of a computer. Another focus of Yacov is to try and tie the Bible code into surface text scriptures, which is not something that I personally do at all. That doesn't mean he's wrong, but that Yacov has a different research focus, which is OK.

In this second book on the codes, Yacov has begun developing some longer terms that are phrases rather than all individual words. That's good. He doesn't show his Bible code terms in a matrix, but rather as a list of terms with both the Hebrew and English. Although the Bible codes computer software allows anyone to do much more in the codes than Yacov can do by hand, yet Yacov comes up with some interesting findings. Doing it by hand, however, he is limited to low ELS (equidistant letter spacing) finds generally less than 500, but almost certainly less than 1000.

Yes, we are advancing in the Bible codes far beyond what a pioneer in the codes like Yacov can do by hand, but I think we would be remiss not to honor his part in codes development.

Recommended basic level codes reading as the pioneer in codes work from a christian viewpoint, His Name is Jesus is available at and Barnes&
