Massive Jesus Mosaic Pervades |
the Aramaic New Testament
An enormous mathematical variation, or mosaic, has been discovered in appearances of Jesus (Yeshu) ELSs in the Peshitta, or Aramaic New Testament. These variations could not possibly have occurred by chance, and analysis shows that they were intentionally encoded, even though the text was authored by several writers over a number of years.
Researcher Rev. Glenn David Bauscher discovered the patterns formed by occurrences of Jesus with skips greater than 50,000 in the Aramaic New Testament. We reported earlier on other initial results from his research in the October issue.
In the first table we have a comparison between the variations from the expected number of occurrences of Yeshu (Jesus) as an ELS in the Peshitta text and in a control text (a scrambled version of the Peshitta).
While the results for the first two skip range categories are very comparable, and uninteresting, those for ELSs with skips greater than 50,000 are radically different. The actual number of occurrences of the Yeshu ELS in these higher ranges differs from the expected number by 520,240 in the Peshitta while only differing by 29,409 in the control text. So the size of the variation in the Peshitta is 17.7 times greater than that in the control text. While the variation was only 0.3% from expected in the control text, it was 6.2% in the Peshitta. The size of the variation for the control text is well within what would be expected on the basis of random phenomena. The Peshitta variations, however, are decidedly greater than that for the last two skip size categories.|
The following graph provides a side-by-side comparison of the variations from expected for a more detailed breakdown of skip size ranges. It is evident that the mosaic effect for Yeshu ELSs in the Peshitta is exceptionally strong. In this way, Bible codes consisting of the short form of the name of Jesus affirm the supernatural authorship of the Aramaic New Testament.
The following table provides a key to the definitions of the numbered skip size ranges in the above graph.|
Because of the sensitivity of variations from expected to differences in letter frequencies in different parts of a text, the size of the variations from expected in the control text can be as great as 25 standard deviations, rather than just 4.|
If variations due to chance should almost never be greater than 25 standard deviations, how then can we explain many of the variations noted above that are far greater than that? The largest variations are 133, 121, 73, 55 and 49 standard deviations from expected. Variations of these magnitudes are far greater than those that could be due to chance.
