Another Perspective |
on the New 73-letter Code
There are several spectacular attributes of the new world record longest code ever discovered, introduced in the November newsletter. This is the code in English:
If the Friend of Evil will Thirst for the End of My Innocent Purity, His Home is an Urn. Let Judas Have His Day. To Me, the Exalted One, They Fasted. Where Are You? Its Content will be Written from My Mouth. Father, Indeed You will Raise the Dead Over ThereOn top of its astonishing length, which is 12 letters longer than the previous record holder, there is the relatively short skip of 738 letters. Then there is the strong connection between the code's early sentences and the main subject, Judas. In this article we will look at the contexts of the verses that the letters of the code pass through.
The overall context, of course, is the cluster that it is a part of the Isaiah 53 cluster, which contains names, places and events concerning the death, resurrection and ascension of Jesus. With its short skip, it does not reach into another known cluster, beginning in Isaiah 29:23 and ending in Jeremiah 9:18.
More than a third of the letters—47 of the 73 letters, or 64.3%—touch down in verses that bear a relationship to the message of the code. A few of them are chillingly on point with the wording of the code, while others bear a more tenuous relationship to it.
There are clear connections to Judas in a few of the verses that the code touches down in. Some contain references to pottery, recalling Matthew's version of Judas' story. After he had thrown the 30 pieces of silver into the Temple and went out and hanged himself, the priests were not sure what to do with them.
"So they decided to use the money to buy the potter's field as a burial place for foreigners. That is why it has been called the Field of Blood to this day. Then what was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet was fulfilled: "They took the thirty silver coins, the price set on him by the people of Israel, and they used them to buy the potter's field, as the Lord commanded me." Matthew 27:7-10 New International VersionThe prophet Zechariah also predicted what would become of the blood money:
I told them, "If you think it best, give me my pay; but if not, keep it." So they paid me thirty pieces of silver. And the Lord said to me, "Throw it to the potter"—the handsome price at which they priced me! So I took the thirty pieces of silver and threw them into the house of the Lord to the potter. Zechariah 11:12 New International VersionThere are also interesting connections to the Exalted One between the code and the surface text Scripture, the most obvious being the passage right in the middle of Isaiah 53. Many of the contexts promise wonderful things to those who harken to the Lord. But there are just as many that promise damnation.
For the sake of simplicity, we have presented the entire code in the following tables that show each sentence of the ELS, beginning at the top and displaying each letter in the left column. In the second column from the left is the verse that the letter appears in, and in the third column from the left is the English translation of the word made up by the letters in the first column.
Where there is a verse or passage that the ELS passes through and that we believe bears a connection to the code, we show it in the third column, along with our comments in blue. If there is more than one verse included in the context, the one that the ELS passes through is shown in bold. Here is the first sentence, If the Friend of Evil will Thirst for the End of My Innocent Purity, His Home is an Urn.
