Just received this book yesterday, and am through chapter one. It's a look at some of the mathematical characteristics of biblical landmarks and their significance to prophecy, based on Newton's works from the original Hebrew scriptures. Pretty cool stuff. . .one tidbit I found while checking out the end of the book (to see whether the the butler did it): Bethlehem lies at North 31 degress, 41 minutes, 59 seconds, or Pi (3.1459)

That's interesting about Bethlehem. Baunie Gaunt has written extensively about Bethlem being at 31.68 degrees north because 3168 is the value of LORD JESUS CHRIST in Greek. Her number is the same as 31 degrees 41 minutes in decimal notation because 41/60 = .68.

But as it turns out, Google Earth shows us the center of Bethlehem is at 31 42 28 and the traditional birthplaces of Christ are at 31 42 18 and 31 42 19. The area at 31 41 59 is about a third of a mile south from there. There is absolutely no way to know the precise birthplace of Jesus to anything like the degree of accuracy implied by the numbers presented above. Their claims have absolutely no foundation in fact whatsoever.

It would be interesting if there was a geographical relationship between the birth places of the founders of all the different world religions. For example, if they were all born at equal intervals of latitude or longitude....
