Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

For years, people have been studying biblical prophecy and its relevance to current events. The enormous popularity of Michael Drosnin's The Bible Code signaled the public's interest in divining the mysterious workings of God through the words of scripture. Now Jeffrey (The Signature of God) joins the ranks of those who read the Bible as an almanac of current events. Using linguistic evidence to crack the codes of the Hebrew and Greek of the Bible, Jeffrey claims that the codes reveal events such as Hitler and the Holocaust (Deuteronomy 10:17-22), the death of Diana (Exodus 28:10) and the Oklahoma City bombing (Genesis 32, 34-36, 44). Although Jeffrey cautions that Bible codes can't be used to foretell future events and they do not contain any hidden theological or doctrinal messages, he casts these cautions to the wind as he demonstrates how Bible passages reveal events that occur outside the Bible's historical context. If, as Jeffrey maintains, these codes are some kind of game God has played to reveal to us the origin of scripture, then the mystery and authority of scripture are diminished by Jeffrey's approach. Jeffrey uses poor scholarship and inadequate evidence to shore up his grandiose claims.

Grant Jeffery does a good job updating the building upon the arguments he made in THE SIGNATURE OF G-D and THE HANDWRITING OF G-D. Unlike Michael Dorinsn in his book THE BIBLE CODE Jeffery does not attempt to predict the future with the Bible Code. Rather, he gives an overview of the nature of the Bible Codes, how they work and where to find them. If that wasn't enough, he gives examples from Christian, Jewish and Secular sources confirming the Bible Codes, as well as several examples, most of them important to the and directly related to the Bible, but other codes of interest as well (i.e., the Hitler Codes and the Rabbis Codes). Even though it does repeat some information found in Jeffery's other books, there's good stuff to be read here. Recommended.

This book does an amazing job of disproving the skeptics of the Bible Codes. In response to Mr. Rogers' review I would like to remind him that although he may be right about shorter words being easier to find, he seems to have forgotten the torah codes. Since these codes are spelled out throughout 4 of the 5 books of the torah, the chances of these codes being found is astronomical. As for the accuracy of the text, the codes are spelled out through all of Genesis proving that a change in the text could not have thrown these codes into existence unless the entire text was changed. Also, Mr. Rogers seems to be forgetting that not only was the word princess found, but all around it were other words relating to the Death of Princess Diana. When you stated that the Bible was a book of fables and stories you could not have sounded more ignorant. In fact many of the events desribed in the Bible are documented by historians as actual historical events. In the future I hope you will not slander something that you are most certainly not qualified to speak of. Besides, even without the existence of the codes there are still bundles of proof that the Bible is true.

Grant Reid Jeffrey (1948-2012) was a Canadian Bible teacher of Bible prophecy and biblical archaeology; he wrote a great number of books, such as His Name is Jesus: The Mysterious Yeshua Codes, The New Temple and the Second Coming, Jesus: The Great Debate, etc. He also wrote the Foreword to Image of the Risen Christ: Remarkable New Evidence About the Shroud.

He wrote in the Introduction to this 1998 book, "The whole world is talking about the remarkable phenomenon known as the Bible Codes... Is it possible that God has actually hidden a series of encoded words in the text of the Bible that reveals His supernatural knowledge of historical and current events? ... Are the claims about the Bible Codes true? If they are, the Bible Codes phenomenon provides powerful additional evidence that the Bible is truly the inspired Word of God." (Pg. 1) He adds, "With powerful apologetic evidence such as this, Christians can challenge the skeptics in our generation to consider the claims of the Bible to be the supernatural Word of God." (Pg. 16)

He states, "Some criteria for establishing legitimate Bible Codes are...: 1. A significant number of thematically linked low-interval ELS [equidistant letter sequence] encoded words that appear clustered together in one or two paragraphs of the biblical text... 2.
