Bible Code Matrix of Yeshua's Birth,
part 2
by Roy A. Reinhold February 1, 2001

First, I want to show you the center of the overall matrix (ELS 19), which has the term "khag hamolad" (holiday of the Nativity) in red and above it "ranu ami" (Sing or Rejoice, My people). The area of the matrix with the date of birth information on Yeshua (Jesus) is below the center area of the overall matrix, so it is good to look at the center of the matrix and have a perspective.

Center of the overall matrix

Note that I turned off all other terms in the matrix from the display, so that you could see the center of the overall matrix without any clutter. Ranu ami (Sing or Rejoice, My people) is read in green from top to bottom, while khag hamolad (holiday of the Nativity) is read in red from bottom to top. That's why the matrix report above shows the holiday of the Nativity term in the report at a skip or ELS of -19, while Sing (Rejoice), My People has a +19 skip or ELS. That's kind of basic Bible codes knowledge for viewers who are unfamiliar with the Bible code. What is significant is that these terms are vertical in the same line and near each other, and they set the topic for the overall matrix.

For people new to the Bible code, the R-value in the matrix in the above report is a statistical measure of significance on a log 10 scale. An R-value of 0.0 means there is a 50-50 chance of the term showing up in a matrix this size, negative R-values mean that the term is likely to show up in the matrix by chance (shorter terms), while higher positive R-values show little likelihood that this is by chance. An R-value of +1.0 is a 1 chance in 10, +2.0 is 1 chance in 100, +3.0 is 1 chance in 1000, +6.0 is 1 chance in a million, and so on because it is on a log 10 scale. This is a rough way to calculate the odds, although we won't go into statistical calculations in this article. I only point this out because it is in the matrix report above.

The overall matrix was first discovered by researchers at Bible Code Digest, (Ed Sherman, Dr. Nathan Jacobi, and Dave Swaney) although they hadn't sorted out all the information when I decided to look and see if we could determine the actual birthdate of Yeshua from the matrix. Bible Code Digest puts out a monthly newsletter on the Bible code at a very modest price, at the website above.

The Yeshua (Jesus) Birth Matrix Report

I'll show part of the matrix below, but for most people, the above matrix report is easier to handle in analyzing what is in the matrix, because you have the terms in Hebrew and in English.

What it shows is that Yeshua (Jesus) was born on Rosh Hashanah (head of the year), which is also called Yom Teruah (day of blowing) and in English the Feast of Trumpets. It's also Rosh Khodesh which means the head of the month. Rosh Hashanah occurs on the 1st of Tishri every year in the jewish calendar, and is in the fall of the year. The matrix shows that the birth occurred in the jewish year 3759, which is the fall of 3 BC. In 3 BC, the 1st of Tishri occurred on September 11, 3 BC. With the matrix showing Rosh Hashanah, Yom Teruah, Rosh Khodesh, and "on 1 Tishri", it is clearly showing 1 Tishri as the exact day of Yeshua's birth.

The matrix shows that Joseph (Yosef) and Mary (Miriam or Miryam) were in Bethlehem (Beit Lechem) and stayed in a succah, a stable. Yeshua the Messiah came from heaven, to the earth, and His name is Wonderful, and Counselor, and the Son of Man. The manger or feeding trough is mentioned where Mary laid the baby after the birth. The Ruach Hakodesh (Holy Spirit) was present and the shepherds came to pay homage. It mentions the angels who announced the birth to the shepherds, and the star in the sky announcing His birth.

All the details from the gospels are present and there is probably much more in this matrix than I have shown, since it didn't take me too long to develop it as is. Have we proven that Yeshua was born exactly on September 11, 3 BC? No, because if the matrix doesn't have the conception 270-271 days prior to September 11, 3 BC, then it didn't meet the criteria showing all the aspects surrounding Yeshua's conception and birth. If we count up the days from January 1 to September 11 in 3 BC (a non leap year, because 4 AD is a leap year which would make 1 BC a leap year), then we get 254 days. That means 18 days backwards in December of 4 BC, should be the exact date of the conception (December has 31 days). Our target should then be December 13, 4 BC for the date of the conception based on a 271 day average human gestation period for male babies. I should mention that the Hebrew word for pregnancy is "herayon" (hey resh yud vav nun). Since Hebrew letters also have numerical values it would be as follows:

hey=5, resh=200, yud=10, vav=6, nun=50; or total=5+200+10+6+50=271

OK, first take a quick look at the matrix below (it'll look cluttered to you), and then on to the next section showing the date of the announcement to Mary by the angel and the subsequent conception by the Holy Spirit (Ruach HaKodesh). I think you'll be happy to know that it agrees with out calculation above.

The matrix above is cluttered, but if you were to trace the letters, you would see things like Ruach and HaKodesh crossing, Angels and Star crossing, Rosh and Khodesh crossing, Rosh and Hashanah crossing, manger and succah (stable) crossing, and other related terms crossing or closely parallel, or close together. It's better to look in the matrix report and see what is there.

Is there scriptural support for Yeshua (Jesus) being born on the 1st of Tishri? Yes, in 1 Corinthians 15:45 it says in talking about Yeshua, "The first man, Adam, became a living soul. The last Adam became a life-giving spirit." In 1 Corinthians 15:22, it states, "For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ (the Messiah) all shall be made alive." Yeshua is the second Adam, and the rabbi's have long taught that Adam's birthdate was on 1 Tishri. So it is no coincidence that the second Adam has the same exact birth date.

Let's go on part 3 and look at the announcement and conception.
