Author blog from Bethsheba Ashe @ the Times of Israel

All about the formal system of Gematria, that was used by ancient Biblical scribes in the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament.

The problem with so-called ‘old-school’ bible studies.

If you take a degree in Biblical Studies today (especially in the USA, and especially in their Christian colleges) then you’re liable to emerge from your matriculation with a very strange picture of ancient Israel. You’ll be asked to believe that ancient Israel, alone amongst the civilizations of the ancient near east, did not develop their own tradition of mathematics and science...


What is a cover-cipher?

If you’re new to gematria or you haven’t really looked into it in the last 5 years, you probably believe that most Talmudic authors and Rabbis were using “Standard Gematria.” You would assume that if there were gematria in the bible that it would use Standard Gematria. And you would have good reason to think this. All the greats in Talmudic and Kabbalistic literature appear to have been using this cipher, and nearly all gematria calculators (except for Shematria) will allow you to use this method. It’s not called ‘standard’ for nothing. However you’d only be half right about this because Standard Gematria is a cover-cipher.  So what is a cover-cipher? ...

Real Gematria

NEW: Real Gematria is a formal system of early mathematics. It might not fit modern ideas of mathematics, but for a scribe that was writing at the time of King Solomon, it was just the way math was done in those days.

Scribal Methods?

There are some wild ideas that run around biblical studies these days – ideas that are ungrounded by the principle: "The best exegesis of a text flows from methods actually used by it’s writer."

What is a pseudo-cipher?

Welcome back to my blog on gematria, the merkabah and the birth of the alephbet. Today I’m going to explain to you what a pseudo-cipher is. I’ll be mentioning cover-ciphers too so if you don’t know what those are, it might be best to catch up with my previous blog entry: What is a cover-cipher ...

About Shematria

The Shematria Gematria Calculator is a research tool for people engaged in the study of the Bible and other Occult texts.

Shematria converts words to numbers. It makes working out formal gematria calculations easier and faster to do. Shematria accepts calculations in Hebrew, Greek, Arabic & Roman scripts. The calculator only carries ciphers that have been proven to have been used in the Tanakh, the New Testament or the Book of the Law*.

The name 'Shematria' is a contraction of the words 'Shem' and 'Gematria'. in Hebrew the word 'Shem' means 'name'.

The name 'Shematria' has the same gematria value as the word 'Gematria'. A common title for God in Judaism is 'HaShem', meaning 'The Name' (of God).This calculator allows you to add and subtract as well as do simple division and multiplication (with single letters).



It will not count any numbers that you enter if they accompany letters. If you enter numbers only, it will check our database for other examples of words and calculations that match that number.

The Shematria database is curated. Please see our guidelines for submission to our database. The Shematria Gematria Search is an interlinear Bible that includes the gematria of every word. It can speak the verses in Hebrew or Greek for you to reveal poetic meter, rhyme, and other features of the text.

If you'd like to learn more about the formal system of Gematria, I recommend you read 'Behold! The Art and Practice of Gematria' by Bethsheba Ashe.
