    You can find the Full Reduction Gematria in the form of English alphabets.You are given the corresponding numerical values to the first nine words of English alphabets. We are repeating the numeric values to the next nine words, and you would have noticed the value so the English word “z” is “8”. A related system of gematria is Notarikon, in which letters taken from phrases form mystical acronyms, or words are developed into mystical phrases. A more complicated procedure is temurah, in which letters of words are transposed or replaced according to complex rules. Some modern occultists have applied gematria to the tarot cards, associating the 22 trump cards with the Hebrew letters, a practice suggested by Éliphas Lévi, author of The History of Magic (1913). In Hebrew, every letter is given a numerical value and those values can be added up to achieve the numerical value of a word. Despite Naḥmanides’ attempt to limit its use, gematria found its way into the biblical commentary. The Pane’aḥ Raza by Isaac ben Judah ha-Levi (late 13th century) and Ba’al ha-Turim by Jacob ben Asher (c. 1270 to 1340) both make frequent use of gematria. For example, the 17th-century work, Megalleh Amukkot, by Nathan Nata ben Solomon Spira, uses gematria extensively. The followers of Shabbetai Zevi used gematria as proof of his messianism. Gematria is the calculation of the numerical equivalence of letters, words, or phrases, and, on that basis, gaining, insight into interrelation of different concepts and exploring the interrelationship between words and ideas. Throughout history, some people have believed that the Torah contains secrets that can be revealed by gematria and used to predict historical events. If you are you looking for more on web page stop by our own web page. This belief continues to this day, and was popularized by Michael Drasin’s best-selling (and much criticized) The Bible Code, published in 1997. Some Hasidic communities that are steeped in the study of kabbalistic literature believe that the Torah, as read through the lens of gematria, contains clues to current events. The first numerical cipher that is known to be assigned to the English Alphabet was by Cornelius Agrippa in 1533, in his work De Occulta Philosopha. Agrippa gave value to the English letters without trying to transliterate them from Hebrew or Greek, so L is 20, rather than 30 (for Lamed), M is 30, rather than 40 (for Mem) and N is 40, rather than 50 (for Nun).
