Overview

Would you like to be able to read hidden messages in the Bible and other occult texts?
Gematria is so much more than people think it is today. Real Gematria is not about cherry-picking numbers and comparing them to one other.
Real Gematria (in the Bible) was a formal system of early mathematics.
That means it had known rules and conventions, like our system of math does today. Gematria is a beautiful and ancient art that is a crucial key to biblical interpretation and occult symbolism.
If you've ever wondered why Adam and Eve had to leave the garden of Eden? Or how Moses parted the red sea? Or whether the story of Elijah riding the fiery chariot to heaven was real? The answers are in the gematria.
Behold: The Art and Practice of Gematria is the most advanced and thorough study of gematria ever published to date. It is at once a student handbook, a history, and an invaluable reference.
Written by the creator of the Shematria Gematria Calculator, and referencing the latest professional scholarship, Behold includes everything you need to find and read hidden gematria messages for yourself.
