Real Gematria

2 0 0

Real Gematria is a formal system of early mathematics. It might not fit modern ideas of mathematics, but for a scribe that was writing at the time of King Solomon, it was just the way math was done in those days.

I think Gematria was a marvelous achievement. With just 22 letters, the ancient scribes of the first Temple wove complex, beautiful, and highly informative calculations within their writings.

In Genesis 1:1, they used two different cyphers as well as notariqon (taking the first letter of each word).

בראשית אלהים השמים הארץ = 700
— Genesis 18:9

In the beginning Elohim the Heavens the Earth = 700.

ב ב א א ה ו ה = 800.

B B A A H V H = 800.

700 is a number........
