The YESHUA codes and the Crucifixion: The Name of Jesus in Old Testament prophecyEquidistant Letter Codes were first discovered by Rabbi Ben Weismendal in 1958. We cover the Bible Codes in much fuller detail in our presentation The Bible is Supernatural on this web site.
The most important of all the Bible Codes is the "Yeshua" codes (the name of Jesus in Hebrew). In these codes, the Crucifixion passages of the Old Testament indicate exactly Who they refer to. They refer to "Yeshua", which is Hebrew for "Jesus."
Psalm 22: 14-16"I am poured out like water, and all My bones are out of joint; my heart is like wax; it has melted within Me. My strength is dried up like a potsherd, and My tongue clings to My jaws; you have brought Me to the dust of death. For dogs have surrounded Me; the congregation of the wicked has enclosed Me. They pierced My hands and My feet."
In the above passage, the name "YESHUA" is spelt out every 26th letter. Yeshua is the Hebrew name for Jesus. The Equidistant Letter Code of 26 is particularly significant, because the Hebrew name for God, "JHWH" ("YAHWEH"), has a numerical value in Hebrew of 26
Isaiah 53: 8-10"He was taken from prison and from judgement, and who will declare His generation? For He was cut off from the land of the living; for the transgressions of My people He was stricken. And they made His grave with the wicked, but with the rich at His death, because He had done no violence, nor was any deceit in His mouth. Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise Him; he has put Him to grief. When You make His soul an offering for sin, he shall see His seed, He shall prolong His days,
and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in His hand."
In the above passage the code "YESHUA SHMA" is spelled out every 22nd letter, meaning "My Name Is Jesus".
