The Bible code, (Hebrew: הצופן התנ”כי‎, hatzofen hatanachi), also known as the Torah code, is a purported set of secret messages encoded within the Hebrew text of the Torah.

This hidden code has been described as a method by which specific letters from the text can be selected to reveal dates, names, discoveries, and events that have either occurred in the past or may happen in the future.

Computers have been used to enhance searching for more complex variants, as well as quantifying the statistical likelihood of search results.

Contemporary discussion and controversy became widespread in 1994 when Doron Witztum, Eliyahu Rips, and Yoav Rosenberg published a paper, “Equidistant Letter Sequences in the Book of Genesis“, in the scientific journal Statistical Science.

The paper presented strong statistical evidence that biographical information about famous rabbis was encoded in the text of the Book of Genesis, centuries before those rabbis lived.

Is there another layer of information that we can use to get ahead of history and our mistakes?
