Overview

0n September 1, 1994, I flew to Israel and met in Jerusalem with a close friend of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, the poet Chaim Guri. I gave him a letter which he immediately gave to the Prime Minister.

"An Israeli mathematician has discovered a hidden code in the Bible that appears to reveal the details of events that took place thousands of years after the Bible was written," my letter to Rabin stated.

"The reason I'm telling you about this is that the only time your full name Yitzhak Rabin is encoded in the Bible, the words 'assassin that will assassinate' cross your name."

On November 4, 1995, came the awful confirmation, a shot in the back from a man who believed he was on a mission from God, the murder that was encoded in the Bible three thousand years ago.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Newsweek Explosive....No wonder the book is causing a sensation.

Los Angeles Times A certifiable phenomenon. The text abounds with stunning predictions.

Time A new book says Rabin's murder was predicted, and there are dreadful things to come. Should we fear?

The Barnes & Noble Review
October 1997

The Bible Code is the first full account of a scientific discovery that may change the world, told by a skeptical secular reporter who became part of the story. During Drosnin's five-year investigation of the 3,000-year-old code in the Bible that may reveal our future, he interviewed all the experts, here and abroad. He spent many weeks with the world-class mathematician who discovered the code, Dr. Eliyahu Rips, and he met with famous mathematicians at Harvard, Yale, and Hebrew University. He also talked to a senior code breaker at the top-secret U.S. National Security Agency, who replicated the code and confirmed its messages.

More than just a simple skip code, the Bible code crisscrosses the entire known text of the Bible to find a complex network of words and phrases. For example, after it finds a keyword ("Yitzhak Rabin"), the computer then looks for related information ("assassin," "Amir," "Tel Aviv"). Time after time it finds connected names, dates, and places encoded together. With "Bill Clinton," "President." With "Hitler," "Nazi." With the moon landing, "spaceship" and "Apollo 11." A code that has information about significant earthquakes that already happened warns of a major earthquake in Los Angeles early in the next century. It also warns of a nuclear war triggered by an act of nuclear terrorism against Israel.

The Bible code raises a critical question: Does the code describe an inevitable future or a series of possible futures whose ultimate outcome we can still decide? In any event, the Bible code forces us to accept whattheBible itself can only ask us to believe: that we are not alone. As Drosnin states, "If the Bible code proves one thing, it is that a nonhuman intelligence does exist, or at least did exist at the time the Bible was written. No human could have looked thousands of years ahead and encoded in that ancient book the details of today's world."

From Chapter 1: The Bible Code

On September 1, 1994, 1 flew to Israel and met in Jerusalem with a close friend of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, the poet Chaim Guri. I gave him a letter which he immediately gave to the Prime Minister. "An Israeli mathematician has discovered a hidden code in the Bible that appears to reveal the details of events that took place thousands of years after the Bible was written," my letter to Rabin stated. "The reason I'm telling you about this is that the only time your full name — Yitzhak Rabin — is encoded in the Bible, the words 'assassin that will assassinate' cross your name. "That should not be ignored, because the assassinations of Anwar Sadat and both John and Robert Kennedy are also encoded in the Bible — in the case of Sadat with the first and last names of his killer, and the date of the murder, and the place, and how it was done. "I think you are in real danger, but that the danger can be averted." On November 4, 1995 came the awful confirmation, a shot in the back from a man who believed he was on a mission from God, the murder that was encoded in the Bible three thousand years ago. The assassination of Rabin is dramatic confirmation of the reality of the Bible code, the hidden text in the Old Testament that reveals the future. The code was discovered by Dr. Eliyahu Rips, one of the world's leading experts in group theory, a field of mathematics that underlies quantum physics. It has been confirmed by famous mathematicians at Harvard, Yale, and Hebrew University. It has been replicated by a senior code-breaker at the U.S. Department of Defense. It has passed three levels of secular peer review at a leading U.S. math journal. Rabin's assassination was not the only modern event found. In addition to the Sadat and Kennedy assassinations, hundreds of other world-shaking events are also encoded in the Bible-everything from World War II to Watergate, from the Holocaust to Hiroshima, from the Moon landing to the collision of a comet with Jupiter. And the Rabin assassination was not the only event found in advance. The Jupiter collision was found, with the exact date of impact, before it happened, and the dates of the Gulf War were found in the Bible before the war started. It doesn't make ordinary sense in our secular world, and since I am not religious, I would normally be among the first to dismiss it as millennium fever. But I have known about this for five years. I have spent many weeks with the Israeli mathematician, Dr. Rips. I learned Hebrew, and checked the code on my own computer every day. I talked to the man at the Defense Department, who independently confirmed that the Bible code does exist. And I went to Harvard and Yale and Hebrew University to meet with three of the world's most famous mathematicians. They all confirmed that there is a code in the Bible that reveals the future. I did not fully believe it until Rabin was killed. I found the Bible code's prediction of his assassination myself, a clear warning that he would be killed in the Hebrew year that began in late 1995, but never really believed it would happen. When he was killed, as predicted, when predicted, my first thought was, "Oh my God, its real."
