One measure of the distance we've come in eight years of publishing Bible Code Digest is the remarkable length of the codes discovered. In June 2004, the longest code found was 73 letters, and the Top 20 ranged from 40 letters to 73 letters. Today a list of the Top 20 would not have any codes shorter than 50 letters in it, and the Top 10 range from 58 to 296 letters. Better yet, the Top 5 range from 73 to 296.
How compelling is the discovery of such lengthy codes as evidence that the Bible is encoded? In a word, it is conclusive.
The codes listed below are ranked by length alone.
The longest code found to date by a BCD Researcher is the 296-Letter-Long Shimon Peres Code found by Moshe Aharon Shak. This code was first published in the January/February 2006 Digest. The extension of the two-word term —will not be elected in both directions at the same low skip of eight sheds much light on Peres' long political career.
