[GR] > The Number 613

And keep the charge of the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, to keep his statutes, and his commandments, and his judgments, and his testimonies, as it is written in the law of Moses, that thou mayest prosper in all that thou doest, and whithersoever thou turnest thyself:

I Kings 2.3

The First Covenant

The Prime Number 613 is the Jewish Number par excellance. It is the Number that the Jews themselves recongize as characteristic of their faith, since it is the Number of Commandments in the Torah (cf. the Aish Hatorah list or the Jew Faq list or for a list of all 613). This is an ancient tradition that goes back to at least the 2nd Century AD and is common knowledge amongst all Jews to this day (cf. www.613.org).

The assertion that there are exactly 613 Commandments In the Torah is actually a mathematical identity, fully satisfying to the most discerning of intellects:

In the Torah

B'Torah

= 613

This identity is amplified in the value of the common title of Moses the Lawgiver:

Moses our Rabbi

pic

Moshe Rabbeinu

= 613

The meaning of the Number 613 finds its ultimate meaning in the Jewish Tradition in the title of the ultimate Author of the Torah - note this title specifically refers to the God of Israel:

The Lord God of Israel

YHVH Elohi Yisroel

= 613

Now the great miracle of God is that He designed the Greek language to integrate with the meaning revealed in Hebrew, and to bear witness to the Truth of the Gospel to the Jews in a way that no one could ever deny. The New Testament often refers to the Jews as the Circumsicion because this was the sign of the First Covenant. We read (Romans 2.25f):

For circumcision verily profiteth, if thou keep the law: but if thou be a breaker of the law, thy circumcision is made uncircumcision. Therefore if the uncircumcision keep the righteousness of the law, shall not his uncircumcision be counted for circumcision? And shall not uncircumcision which is by nature, if it fulfil the law, judge thee, who by the letter and circumcision dost transgress the law? For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.

The exact word written is:

Circumcision

Peritome

= 613

It is extremely important to meditate upon the implication of these identities. All Jews know that if any number marks the Jews, it is the Number 613! To then find this is the numerical value of the Greek word for circumcision can be seen as nothing less than the Work of the LORD GOD OF ISRAEL! Oh Israel! Return to thy Lord!

Yet there is more! The Hebrew letters are used to indicate the order of things, such as first and second Samuel which are written as Samuel A and Samuel B in the Hebrew Tanakh. Thus, the First Covenant - which is Cicumcision - would be written as:

The First Covenant

B'rit Aleph

= 613 = Circumcision

The Light of the Law

Scripture declares that the Torah is Light. The New Testament makes this clear, revealing how the Light of the Law reveals our Sin. Indde, the Law is Holy, and Just and Good. The first occurrence of the Number 613 in the text of Scripture is found very early in Genesis, when God saw the Light, that it was good:

And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.

We have the identity:

The Light

Et HaAur

= 613

This is the essential light - indicated by the Aleph Tav. The same idea is expressed in the opening verse of Psalm 27 (note 27 and 207 are the ordinal and standard values of Aur):

The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?

We have the identity:

My Light and My Salvation
