Sacred Biblical objects or interfaces, through which mortals seek to ascertain divine will, take on a variety of forms. Numbers 5:16-31, for example, conveys in detail a ritual for determining whether or not a wife, accused of being unfaithful, can indeed be proven guilty. This ritual involves burnt offerings, writing curses on a scroll, infusing …

After reading The Chamberlain Key, a Biblical Hebrew student astutely brought up the issue of minor variations in the consonant sequence of some of the oldest Biblical texts and wondered how these might affect our discoveries. While the minutia of textual analysis may be of little concern to most people who read the Scriptural translations …

In my book, The Chamberlain Key, I share my story as to how I was led to believe that God may have compacted information within the Hebrew Scriptures. For years I searched and studied and finally, in the fall of 1998, I was able for the first time, like many scholars around the world, to put my hands on the Leningrad Codex Facsimile Edition. A book containing the oldest complete manuscript of the Hebrew Bible. This is where all the translations of the Old Testament, or what the Jews call the Tanakh, originate. I quickly turned to a few verses in the book of Genesis. For nearly a decade I had been scouring the Bible in an effort to understand what I was supposed to do in the wake of what God had been revealing to me, which you can read about in detail in my book, The Chamberlain Key. Over time my search had focused more and more in a specific section of Genesis 30, and in particular on a short passage half way through that chapter. I had settled on these verses because there a story told had a puzzling similarity to my own family. You see, I have seven children, six sons and a daughter. My father EJ Smith had seven children as well, six sons and a daughter. And in Genesis chapter 30 verses 20 to 23 we read this:

And Leah said, God hath endued me with a good dowry; now will my husband dwell with me, because I have born him six sons: and she called his name Zebulun.
And afterwards she bare a daughter, and called her name Dinah.
And God remembered Rachel, and God hearkened to her, and opened her womb.
And she conceived, and bare a son; and said, God hath taken away my reproach:

Now it’s always fascinated me that both my father and myself had seven children, six sons and a daughter. So it should be no surprise when I study the Bible this verse would make me pause because Leah also had six sons and a daughter. As I examined the original text in The Leningrad Codex I went straight for Genesis chapter 30:20-23 to see if I might find anything hidden there. I found it immediately, without any computer software whatsoever. There is Genesis 30, 20 through 23 I found the Hebrew letters of my own name encrypted in the text at a perfect equidistant skip of 16. The odds of it being there by chance are astronomical. Many billions to one. This was astounding. While this may be a little lengthy, I’d like to take you, step by step, through how I located The Chamberlain Key encryption by hand in The Leningrad Codex. Watch this video to see exactly how I found it. 

One of the numerous complexities of written Hebrew is that each phonetic and numerated letter also bears a hieroglyphic ideogram, or symbol. This added dimension enhances the communicative possibility of any message written in Hebrew. In the case of the “Timotheus” encryption, this symbolic wrinkle introduces much more nuanced interrelations when composed in a chiastic …
